    Good question, they do serve 150 lashes on tap, so no doubt it will be Kegs.

    I always get the Porter when i'm at the footy. Was hoping there'd be a few bottles of that floating around.

    They'll be handing over the bottle like they do in all premium events!

    Ah, excellent. Hopefully I can just send the butler, Jeeves, to go get it from the bar for me to save me having to get it myself.

    The pizzas are supposed to have gourmet toppings too.

    Can't wait for ham and pineapple :drunk:

    Update:

    "Good Afternoon xxxx,

    We have adequate supply of 150 lashes, it will be available from all Bars on Tap

    We have a limited supply of the following wines to compliment the Hentley Farm and Jacobs Creek Reserve range:

    Black Chook Pinot Grigio
    The Lane Vineyard Block 10 Sauv Blanc
    Jim Barry Watervale Riesling
    Jim Barry Cover Drive Cab Sauv
    Wirra Wirra Lost Watch Riesling
    Ngeringa Syrah 2009
    Serafino GSM

    We hope you choose to come celebrate the grand final with us, however if you would like a refund we can process one for you."

    Ok, so that lifts the selection a bit now, however, "limited" is the key word.

    Lol at the drinks. Whilst I would be drinking west end wherever I was, it's pretty poor to advertise it as premium. I would doubt hardly any West end drinkers would ask for it. If you drink West end you pretty much drink anything.

    Wines are pretty average as well. The updated ones are good though. Watervale Riesling is good quality.

    I'm paying $100 for the memories. I'm not that bothered by the beers. I'd drink West End draught and still have an amazing day, as long as we win.

    If they'd listed the two beers originally offered, I wouldn't have bought the package. They're cats piss.

    What are peoples plans for after game partying if we win?
    If they had have had a live site inside AO with alcohol I imagine that would of been party central. Cant see it goin off if its just the plaza out the front.

    This was actually a decent event outside of the result.

    I'd go every year if it was offered.

    Yeah it was quite good. Food was tasty. Very easy to get drinks. Loads of screens. Good view. Pity about the ******* football.

    The Top of the Ark had a terrific loud atmosphere, with quite a few Richmond supporters to boot so you got the two voices. Would go again for any future grand finals in which I don't get allocated a ticket.
