Melbourne Cup: Last Minute Lunches
By ANNA USHER
It's the race that stops the nation and it runs for just three minutes - but the festivities last all day!
Yes, we're talking about the Melbourne Cup. And while Flemington Racecourse might be the centre of attention on November 7th, there's no shortage of local hot spots right here in Mosman, hosting some truly fabulous events this year.
Big screens, cash sweepstakes and prizes for best dressed revellers are on offer at many of our top notch restaurants next Tuesday; along with free flowing champagne, elaborate three-course meals and even live music.
It's true that many venues have been booked out for months, but if you've left your party plans to the last minute - don't despair!
Believe it or not, there are still some fantastic options available - but you'll need to jump on the phone and book a remaining table - FAST!
So saddle up, throw on your best frock, add a stylish head piece and get ready to party - as Mosman celebrates one of the world's greatest annual sporting events.
Here's our wrap on last minute restaurant availability for Melbourne Cup Day in Mosman. Giddy up!
