Three ways to celebrate spring at the RUC

Our DJ playing tunes, you kicking back and lounging in the sun. Hey spring, welcome back.

Here’s three ways to celebrate the return of spring at the RUC:

  1. Soul Sunday – every Sunday, from 2 – 6pm, we’ll have the beer and bubbly flowing, the bowls set up and the DJ playing some soulful tunes as the soundtrack for your sunny afternoon.
  2. Spring racing – we’ll be playing all the big race days on TVs around the club, so you can enjoy the racing and the atmosphere. Dust those fascinators off ladies – in October and November we’ll be serving up drinks deals and best dressed prizes just for you. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for more details
  3. Secret deck stuff – To celebrate our deck’s first birthday, we have something exciting up our sleeve. At the end of September, this deck is going to become an even BETTER place to spend some quality time with friends and family and watch those glorious Canberra sunsets fade behind Telstra Tower.

The RUC, the place to be this spring. See you there!

We interviewed him to find out what his culinary background is, what his favourite dish is (beef short rib, by the way, and it’s pretty darn good), and what he gets up to in his spare time.
