Feel like doing something in Fremantle on Melbourne Cup Day? Why not go to Clancy’s Fish Pub and watch the horses on the big screens there inside and outside.
The most exciting part is the Fried Mice competition after the races where local heroes eat hot fried chillies filled with cream cheese. It’s a great excuse to drink more cold beer afterwards.
There are sweeps and hobby horse races and live music. Doors open at 10 am and the seafood platters are great!
Tomorrow is the day where Australia stops to watch a horse race. The Melbourne Cup is such a tradition that many people take the day off to go out for a long lunch and watch the big race on big screens in pubs and clubs.
Clancy’s Fish Pub in Fremantle always puts up a special treat with sweeps, hobby horse races, live music, the famous seafood platters and the feared Fried Mice Competition. The latter is for the brave and foolish who like it very hot, as fried mice are deepfried large chillis stuffed with cream cheese. Quite yummy once you get over the first shock and your tear sacks are shriveled dry. ; > )
Doors open at 10.30 so make it a day out at Freo’s favourite family pub.
