Celebrating good times as bar turns one
FORGET the children’s toys and morning teas – this first birthday party will be unlike any other.
Instead think sun-kissed skin, beers and plenty of oysters as you help celebrate Anchor Bar’s first birthday this Sunday from 3pm.
Known for its cruisy vibe and live music, this bar knows how to put on a good Sunday session.
Owner Josh Knutson said the day was all about celebrating the bar’s humble beginnings to what it is today.
“It’ll be a fun-filled celebration open to anyone,” he said.
“This is our way of offering something back for continued local support.”
Tipped to be a highlight of the afternoon will be the appearance of dubbed ‘oyster girl’ shucker Stephanie Verhaagen.
Hailing from Holland where she shucks professionally, this will be Ms Verhaagen’s first show in Australia.
Dressed in a simple white tee with a white apron, jeans and heels, she brings eloquence and flair to the tasty dish with her swaying hips and tantalising selection plucked fresh from the sea and shucked on site.
There will also be tastings from Anchor Bar’s updated menu and live music from 4-7pm.
“This is a family-friendly event with the pool open for children if mum or dad wants to wind down their weekend with a beverage or two,” Mr Knutson said.
