    I'm sure it's been asked before, but what's on in Falls after the lifts have closed? My mates and I are heading up in the first week of August and we don't know much about the night-life there...

    I've heard there is plenty to go, i'm a hotham regular and the scene is good there, heading upto Falls next weekend and hoping to have at least one big night out.

    Interesting to hear some recommendations for this year

    Anyone know where to track down a gig guide for Falls Creek?

    Definately get to Big Jug Night at The Man....always a good night - dont forget to bring your big cup!

    ...Oh and FC Hotel have some good drink specials. They usually have a Harvey Wallbanger Night, which is a good place to start

    Harveys night is on Tuesday and sometimes thursdays aswell, I think. the Vodka Bar at Astra is worth a look and maybe the bar at silverski. the Man is of course the main venue.

    That sounds like a long standing tradition. I can remember (sort of) skiing back (sort of) to my lodge after a several HW's there nearly 30 years ago [​IMG]

    Harvey Hour (maybe 2-3hours) is a late arvo event. Think it starts between 3-4 i think. Cock'n'Bull also have a pretty good happy hour.

    I have seen the odd soul crawling back after a 'Harvey Hour', which is actually 3 hours.

    oooh yeah, nuthin like a jug of HWB to relax the muscles after a hard day on the slopes [​IMG]

    I remember my first HWB evening - I went and asked one of the staff if they do hot chips (I later found out he was the manager)...I was politely told that no hot chips were available but was given 2 shots of Jager for free instead! Gotta love service like that

    Big Cup night gone? Jeez that was almost as much a tradition as HWB Night!

    Yep very sad to see big cup go, some great nights seeing spider bait, Machine gun etc and just chillin with friends. When i started it was $2 or $2.50 to fill your mug ended up at about $7.50 but still not bad value when you have a 2.5lt big gulp, i know its plastic but it was only "New" or "Old" on tap, that $h!t tastes bad no matter what you drink it from.
