Almanac/Odd Friday Lunch: With Jumping Jack Hawkins (June 29)


We’re very much looking forward to lunch with legendary Geelong high flyer, Jumping Jack Hawkins. These days he’s a farmer up Finley way in the Riverina, but gets down to the footy to watch son Tom and visit his other Melbourne-based family.


All welcome.


Lunch is Friday June 29, 12.30 for 1pm (or 1.05pm as Perc likes to say)
North Fitzroy Arms Hotel, 296 Rae St, North Fitzroy
$45 for three courses
Drinks at bar prices


Bookings please: [email protected]  or phone the pub directly on 94864501




Entree:                  Cream of Cauliflower Soup with Toasted Hazelnuts and Truffle Oil.
Mains:                   Crispy Skinned Pork Belly with Parsnip Puree & Kimchi Salad
Grilled Fillet of Yellowfin Tuna with Nicoise Salad.
Dessert:                  Cheese Platter with Apple & Quince.




  1. Looking forward to coming over for this with an eclectic ensemble. Anticipating an afternoon of conversation and what many an ancient country publican has termed, “Cheer.”

  2. This will be an intriguing afternoon, with high flying Geelong number 26, who was clad in the long sleeves.

    As a wage slave, sadly I must be a non -show.

    Hope all goes well for the gathered throng, and the guest speaker from the Riverina.
