Who’s looking to celebrate the runner’s gallant efforts this Sunday for the City to Surf? Or maybe you’re running and want some tips on a watering hole to reward yourself after the 13k effort, if so read on for some post work-out/ slog recharge ideas…
The Bucket List
The Bucket List Bondi is throwing its annual Rehydration Party to aid in the recovery of all race participants, avid spectators, and those who don’t even need an excuse! Re-energize and celebrate with $20 ‘thirst quencher’ jugs, $10 meatball sliders and DJs all day.
Open from 3pm, all welcome, walk-ins only.
City2Surf is one of the biggest running events in Sydney, finishing up at the iconic Bondi Beach. What better way to rehydrate than at one of Bondi’s favourite watering holes, Bondi Hardware!
Bondi Hardware will open early on Sunday 10 August welcoming City2Surf runners, spectators and people who just want to celebrate from 9am for an all-day menu including themed brunch specials to keep your energy going!
There will be Roll’d Over The Finish bacon & egg rolls ($17); Granola and ‘Yog-onna-hurt’ with coconut quinoa and fruit compote ($16); and Smashed your Time avocado on toast ($15.50).
To wash down the fuel, the Hardware team have put together ‘Marathon Mouthfuls’ to quench your thirst! Grab a fresh juice for $7, or choose to spike it for just $15! There will be apple & pear (with a choice of adding tequila or gin); orange and ginger (with a splash of vodka when requested); and kale, beetroot and pear (fuelled with bourbon if you’re game). And because every runner deserves a blue ribbon, there will be $7 Pabst beer all day!
