IRISH BAR WANTS GC’S HOT GINGERS
A NEW Irish bar coming soon to Surfers Paradise is bringing its popular, headline-grabbing “hottest ginger” competition with it.
The which also has Surfers Paradise nightclubs
and on party strip Orchid Avenue, plans opening
Irish bar by mid-next month.
It will open in place of Fiddler’s on Cavill Avenue and anyone familiar with Finn McCool’s in Brisbane entertainment precinct Fortitude Valley should recognise it – the fitout is similar. And also familiar will be the Finn McCool’s “hottest ginger” hunt typically held in July.
It is as it sounds – entrants aim to be the most attractive person with ginger hair in a competition that has made national TV, including The Project.
Hallmark Group marketing boss
tells ATG: “We will definitely be bringing that to the Gold
Hallmark Group, Retro’s Shooters Finn McCool’s Tammy Wood
Coast as well and make it even bigger and better.
“There is a big Irish community on the Gold Coast.
“There were a lot of happy people – after they’d heard about Fiddler’s closing – to hear Finn McCool’s was coming.”
Prizes include cash, a modelling contract and a pro photo shoot. Ms Wood said part of the Hallmark Group redevelopment of the former Fiddler’s venue would be utilising the mezzanine floor: “It will overlook the live entertainment and it will all be nice and new.”
Finn McCool’s in Surfers Paradise will employ 20-plus staff. CONTROVERSY-prone Gold Coast Federal MP
was conspicuous by his absence from PM Gold Coast visit. Coast MPs and flanked “ScoMo” but not Robert, ScoMo’s long-time flatmate in Canberra and Assistant Treasurer. Maybe due to his link to a mystery South America-Australia “not-forprofit, apolitical” group, $2800 monthly data bills to taxpayers and bungling basic economic questions on Sky?
