Default New Year's Day, Pig n Whistle, Eagle Street, Brisbane

For those of you new in town, this is a bit of a Brisbane British Expats tradition.

We've done it for several years now, some people stay all afternoon and evening, some only pop in for an hour,but I thought I'd start the thread now so that anyone who knows they will be here on New Year's Day can include it in their planning!
Some of us are working the night before so may need a few matchsticks for the eyes, but I'm sure I will cope.....

Pig and Whistle, thats the big one by the river, in Eagle Street, anytime from about midday on New Year's Day
