The iconic Town And Country in St Peters was first opened in 1881, in all those years many legends have walked through the door. In 1980, Australian country legend, Slim Dusty penned the song A Beer With Duncan that included the line ‘We drink at the Town And Country, Where the atmosphere is great’.
In 2021 Sydney legend, Monica Mole presented a not so Silent Bingo, calling in all her friends to help entertain a sold out COVIDsafe event at the iconic venue with all proceeds going to the Deaf Rainbow NSW.
Our hostess, Sandy Bottom was keeping everyone honest and the atmosphere was great! Prizes were flowing as she called the balls with plenty of musical interludes and comic moments. Players were entertained on the night from friends CC L’amour, Belle Rose and Monica got everyone into the raffles and jackpot rounds with help from Karen from Financials checking things twice.
Ever been to the Town And Country? This is by far one of the friendliest venues in the Inner West, Helen and the team at T&C are incredibly welcoming and the bistro offers some great food at reasonable prices and were proud sponsors of the night. Other sponsors included The Liquor Emporium at St Peters and Star Observer and Glen Whitfield on sound and lighting.
All in all it was a cracker night for a great cause with some killer entertainment and big laugh out loud moments. My only thought was maybe it was a missed opportunity, I would of loved to see Sandy do a rendition of Beer With Duncan – next time!
