Lunch: Sydney Almanac pub grub get-together this Sunday (all welcome)

G’day Sportsfans

Some of you would know that it is my ambition to lunch for Australia. As an wannabe elite luncher I know I just have to put the hard yards in. (That’s what I keep hearing in post-match interviews from football elites).

Anyway, The Footy Almanac is on tour this weekend. I am coming to Sydney for GWS v Geelong fixture and we are getting together for lunch with some of the Adelaide Uni Greys crowd on Sunday. (details below)

It’s a belated launch of the 2012 and 2013 editions of The Footy Almanac.

Very informal and laid back.

All welcome.

Please spread the word.
