Rethink drinking and walking

When you’ve been drinking you think you’re a really good dancer – but really you look like a newborn giraffe on an ice rink.
So you think you can walk? Think again.

8 pm

So far so good, but the
night’s young.

Walking at 8pm

11 pm

Weird. This footpath seems
to be moving.

Walking at 11pm

2 am

Keys? Dropped. Phone? Lost.
Judgement? Gone.

Walking at 2am

More than 30 percent of pedestrians killed on the road have .05 blood alcohol readings.

So before you go staggering off into the night, plan another way home. And whatever you do, make sure it isn’t riding a bike!

Mates motel menu

The day after a session at your Mate’s Motel, you might wake up bleary eyed and disorientated. So, it’s a good idea to hang out for the late check out, rather than take off right away. One thing you’ll need to keep you going is food. What do you do when you’ve got hungry mates crashed at your place and nothing to eat but left over party foods? You improvise.

Breakfast Pizza

Breakfast pizza

Basically bacon and eggs with cheese on a pizza base. Left over cold cuts make a great replacement for bacon and any fancy soft cheeses will add extra flavour. Pop it on a pizza and shove it under the grill. Then let the headache drift away on the greasy seas of melted cheese.

Italian Taco

Italian taco

Take your taco to the next level. Use a leftover slice of pizza as a taco shell. Then fill it up with sour cream mince and cheese. Total power move.

Budget Nachos

Budget nachos

Left over corn chips, sausages, dips and cheese can make some mean nachos for your mates.

Healthy Kickstart

Health kickstart

Just get whatever fruit is laying around put it in a blender with some ice and whizz it up.

Donut Burger

Donut burger

Use two glazed donuts as your burger bun, then pile on the meat and cheese and you’ve got yourself an epic breakfast donut burger worthy of a king.

Breakkie Noodles

Brekkie noodles

Crack an egg in your mi goreng and mix in some leftover cold cuts from Christmas lunch to take it up a notch. Bam! You’re in flavour country.

Sausage Sauce

Classic sausage and sauce sarnie.

Left over sausages and a splash of tomato sauce make great early morning fuel to keep your guests going.

Potato Salad

Potato salad dippers.

Grab some cold sausages from the barbie and dip them in potato salad for creamy meaty morning goodness.
