Post-Election Drinks Deals You’re Going To Need

Post-election drinks deals. The perfect way to celebrate or mourn our new government. After months of listening to certified non-politicians (i.e. dads) debating the political situation in SA, we have finally reached D-Day. Our fingers are sweating just at the thought of picking up that pen. Minds racing. Could our vote be the swing? Does the Dagga Party stand a chance? Should we start packing for Australia? All these questions (and sleepless nights) will be put to rest this week.

Whether you’ll be celebrating or drowning your sorrows (or just going for a pic of your newly-marked thumb holding a tequila), we have the best post-election drinks deals in the country. Just remember, guys, voting day is a public holiday and an ENTERTAINER exclusion day. Save your post-election dranks for Friday 😉


 

1 | Don’t Worry Beer Happy (Yes, Bob, just yes)

3 | Red, Red Wiiiine (Sung off-tune and at the top of your lungs)

Why should there be a time frame on wine? It’s just old grapes, like raisins. No one says you need to wait ‘til midday to eat raisins. So, if the bar is open, wine ‘o clock it is! And that is no exception post-election. Head to these gorge spots to make some pour decisions 😉
