Civic Pride

We’re taking it up a notch! The Civic Hotel. I’m not sure whether the protest is against how shitty the Civic’s beer garden is, of that the place is always full of losers (bused in from where?) when it should be a good pub. By Heisenberg.

    Seen this morning Innaloo: Prawns 30 per cent off. Just 30 per cent? Why not the full botulism?

    ‘it should be a good pub’

    Coles bought the Civic, and wanted to put a big 1st Choice Liquor warehouse store on the site. They planned to redevelop teh Civic so were happy to let it decay. They bought up a lot of small local bottle shops (like the one in Bayswater), changed them to Liquorland, so that they could close them all and argue that their booze barn was not treading on the little guy.

    This plan has been torpedoed by Woolies building a Dan Murphy’s on the Peninsular Tavern site, so now Coles don’t know what to do with all tme crappy pubs they bought. Same story with The Leopold, Bentley Hotel and Vic Park Tavern.

    Oh dear. Appears The Civic doesn’t serve organic wheatgrass cocktails, or wine from Guatemala, or whatever it is the trendy middle class are now demanding.

    Never mind. I’ll just sit here (right now) watching sport on the TV, surrounded by the class you evidently despise.

    Oh… I bet most of the old blokes at the bar can spell ‘bussed’ as well. Just sayin’.

    Sir Bill, rejoice, your nookie prawns are in fact real and you’ve probably eaten them. The old PNG boat the Lakanuki aka the Lackanookie was converted to a freezer mothership then a trawler and worked from Karumba to Exmouth for decades. Joint owner of the Lackanookie, Freo fishing identity Joe Rotondella, built a Kalamunda shopping centre.

    Speaking of which, did anyone else see the Hands off Kalamunda t-shirts and posters displayed by anti merger protesters on tv last week? What might we catch there? Do we have to wash our hands after?

    TLA, not sure which one yet, he actually admits to the deed in his autobiography. I will sleuth it down.
