Wednesday night fun is a Snap at Manly at this waterfront bar, but get in early or you'll have to Scrabble to get your pick.
Every Wednesday is games night at Tide Bar on William Gunn Jetty. Serious gamers, families and customers looking for a little extra fun are all covered, with a selection of board games and card decks available from the bar at no cost. Players may also bring their own games from home, so long as they are not noisy or messy.
Like all good games, there are a few rules:
Games must be completed within two hours
Games are to be returned at the end of the night and any damage paid for
Games night required victuals, and Tide provides those with Games Night Happy Hour deals running from 6pm – 9pm. Buy two tapas plates and get one free, from a menu offering location appropriate seafood options like Moreton Bay rock oysters and prawns with chorizo, and satisfying nibblies like karage chicken and arancini balls. Vegetarians have several options, including halloumi cigars and roasted cauliflower.
And you can toast your victory or drown your sorrows with a Happy Hour cocktail special. Tide has a wide selection of cocktails, with seasonal options popping up from time to time. Check with the bar on the night for more information.
