    Nah 11:30 at any of jocks gigs, one minute everyone’s buying everyone shots, the next the man’s on his knees doing a guitar solo to pearl jam’s alive! Then he gets everyone singing “throw your arms around me”.....

    Some of our best Thredbo nights out in Thredbo involve that man and his guitar!

    Yeah maybe I’m too caught up in disappointment at what it no longer is, but I don’t like Kareela anymore.

    He does a great version of lighting crashes as well :) but it doesn’t come out often.

    I steer away from Kareela like @Annabuzzy says it’s a chardy shack at times and the wanna be canberra mafia just isn’t my scene.

    hmmm, interesting. Do they turn up to Kareela with violin cases covered in ScoMo stickers, handing out promotional flyers for Sexyland in Fishwyck I wonder? ;)

    Unsure what the Canberra mafia is because most of the customers I see there are definitely from Sydney. I do not go there very often but enjoy it when I go.

    Haha not sure if I or @telecrag would be better to answer this one!

    Canberra high society would be the best way to describe it. Kareela is a known hangout for those people from Canberra that want to be seen at Thredbo.

    That’s not to say that everyone from Canberra who stops in at Kareela want to be seen, I have friends who stop in their all the time but there is an element that want others to see them there.

    We tend to want to see rather than be seen, and there's always so much to see at Kareela.

    Plus, you just never know who you'll bump into. Skiing's all about the people when you think about it.

    seen by who, and why?

    EDIT: I see people there all the time when I go past. I don't know who they are or even care, but I have seen them. I guess they must be happy about that.

    Having lived in Canberra for over 30 years I want to meet these people. Do they go to the opera when it is in town? Are they members of the Commonwealth Club or Royal Canberra Golf Club? The medical or legal profession? Boring senior public servants? ANU academics? As an unadulterated social climber I need to know.

    Reduced menu at Kareela on Sunday. Tried the veal goulash for the first time which was tasty and very filling. Had another Schnitty which was good. Hopefully they have the full menu this coming weekend as I’m keen to try some more of the share plate offerings. Service was great even though it was super busy with the mega influx of people.

    Also had a steak sandwich at black sallees which was really nice but I forgot to take a pic of it.

    That goulash photographs really ordinary (the plate, not the photo skills!) but I know it's tasty.

    Went to burger bar again for lunch on Sunday.

    Unreal, this is by far my favourite place for food on the mountain. For some reason lunch is always empty too.

    Oh, I saw people at kareela again.

    The burger bar is so good, and it's not unreasonably expensive. It's not much more costly than the bistro. The guy who owns the burger bar also owns the donut kiosk at FF. You can see him working at the burger bar with his wife most nights

    Must be why I’m a huge fan of the donuts too.

    The vanilla bean panna cotta at the BB is mouthwatering delicious too.

    Well, snap! Last time we were there I had the all day brekkie and my wife / her friend shared the fondue. Both are wonderful, assuming you can land a table.
