Australia The year that was 2013

What a happy year it has been.

It started with us extending the Top 25 pubs in Melbourne list to the Top 35. We can tell you now that next year we will extend it to the Top 50, and yes there will be more SOUTH OF THE RIVER venues in there. A book deal beckons we reckon.

Top 35

It was around this time we launched a new ANDROID APP. Using GPS technology, your phone actually directs you to valid specials. Technology people, how is it?

In August, the good people at Stone & Wood brewery teamed up with us to offer free beer to our loyal members. The highlight being when over 150 people rocked up to the Transport Bar over two rainy nights. Free beer people, how is it?

In November we headed over to the West and launched Perth, and we must say they do have some of Australia’s best specials. We then swam south to Hobart, hung out at Salamanca Place and got rained on. We loved it. Most recently we headed up north to Brisbane. Any town with $2 STEAKS is ok by us. We’ve pretty much got all the major cities covered now. We wonder if NZ are ready for us?

Finally last week, we named the winners of the 2013 Happiest Awards, as voted by you. There were a few surprises and a very cheeky winner, who offered free pizza to those that voted for them. Perhaps a sign of things to come next year? Bribery people, how is it?


Speaking of which, next year will be even bigger. In Feb/March we will launch a new website that will be more user-friendly and easier for venues to update/change their listings. It will also be more blog focused with venue reviews, interviews and important stuff like: Should an electric shaver be used in a kebab shop? 

In April it's the big one! We will celebrate our 10th Birthday in what will be the biggest event in our history. Called the “THE HAPPIEST DECADE” we have decided to create our very own music festival. Beers, BBQ and bands people! Details and ticket info will be released late January
