Courthouse Hotel goes all Kiwi on us

The Cairns Courthouse Hotel in Abbott Street is throwing a earthquake party on Sunday from midday.

They're hosting a Christchurch Earthquake Appeal to help those affected, and are asking FNQers to make a donation on Sunday or purchasing a 440ml can of New Zealand's favourite beer, Tui (debatable!). The Courthouse will donate $1 from every Tui to the Red Cross Christchurch Appeal and Courthouse owners, the Mangifesta family will match donations dollar for dollar.

"Hundreds of New Zealand families have been coming in and supporting our venue for many years, so we have the opportunity to give something back to them at this time of need," hotelier Claud Mangifesta said. "In true New Zealand spirit Whitebait and Green Lip Mussels have been specially ordered in and there will be New Zealand music and entertainment including face painting for the kids throughout the day."

"We are encouraging people to come down, show their support and enjoy a meal and some live entertainment," Mr Mangifesta said.

We will be there.

Tui beer is more famous for it's adverts rather than the taste as far as I am concerned.

An example of a "Tui Ad"

"Brian Outlaw is a geologist" (yeah right)

We went to the Courthouse Hotel today, pity about the rain but even so seemed like a good turnout. We had whitebait fritters and NZ Greenlip mussels, washed down with Tui beer.

I noticed Mayor Val was there and Councillor Cochrane and the LNP candidate for Cairns.
