New York Magpies Australia Day Party 2009
There will be plenty of Aussie beer, wine and spirits together with selected beverages from other parts of the globe. Meat pies will also be available for purchase courtesy of DUB Pies.

In line with the old days of listening to Triple JJJ and sinking tins, this day will encourage good ol’ fashioned Aussie rock and roll with live performances from Australian artists including Sarah McLellan, Kacie Sheik and Second Dan. (You will hear the Aussie Anthem.)

So get in quick as there will be tons of door prizes from Crumpler bags, The Australian restaurant, and our other corporate sponsors (buying your tickets through PayPal automatically enters you in the draw).
