It’s Always Sunny In Australia
This Australia Day, our minds are 10,000 miles away where our mates are soaking up the sun, packing up their utes and heading to a barbie. The national summertime Australian holiday marks a day of celebration, when we let our hair down, embrace our roots, and enjoy a drink in the sun with mates.
On Saturday, January 26, Bluestone Lane is paying homage to the land down under, where it’s always sunny. Join us with specialty Australian bites, prizes and mates’ rates to celebrate Australia Day. Here’s what you need to know:
Budgy Smugglers & Smugglettes
In collaboration with our mates at Budgy Smuggler AU, we aren’t cutting any corners when we bring the Australia Day spirit to the USA. Famous for the backyard idea of writing ‘budgy smuggler’ on a pair of speedos, the Budgy Smuggler AU team have grown internationally, selling all of their 100% Australian made men’s and women’s swimwear to mates around the world.
On Australia Day, we dare you to think warmer thoughts and do your coffee run in Australia Day style. Wear your best pair of Budgy Smugglers (speedos) or Smugglettes (bathing suit), and win a fair dinkum prize for doing it. How does a month’s free coffee & a $30 voucher to Budgy Smuggler sound? We think it’s worth a freezing dash in ‘nothing but.’ *T&Cs below*
Pre-Order Your Australia Day Lamingtons
There are few things more Australian than the Aussie Lamington (it even has its own national day dedicated to it). And, this Australia Day we want to make sure you don’t go without. Pre-order these delicious treats in all their coconutty, spongey glory for pick up on either Jan 25 or Jan 26.
(*Our request form for lamingtons pickup has now closed. Please drop into to your local store on the 25th and 26th Jan to grab some before they run out)
Aussie Summertime Lingo Quiz
Ah the ‘strayan tongue. The rich slur of our native language that leaves many people in a state of confusion. In the spirit of Australian summer, we’re giving you the chance to test your knowledge of Australian warm-weather lingo in our Aussie lingo quiz here.
What’s Australia day without a coldie or a savvy b? (15oz beer or glass of Sauvignon Blanc). Spend the day with Bluestone Lane, and enjoy $5 Aussie beers & wines at any licensed BL location! And, if you happen to be a local at the Collective Café, Venice Beach, or West End Library, you can enjoy the famous Aussie beef pie with your happy hour drink!
*To win free coffee for a month* & a Budgy Smuggler voucher, patrons must enter a BL location and place their order in swimwear only. ‘Budgy Smugglers’ or ‘Smugglettes’ cannot be worn underneath or over the top of other garments. Share your Australia Day spirit with us on instagram @bluestonelane
