Chupacabra are coming up to their third birthday, and to celebrate all the ups and downs they are hosting a fiesta on Sunday 4 July. Yes, finally a three-year-old’s party with cool music, good food and chilli. ‘Lucky for us,’ says Amelia from Chupacabra, ‘a perk of being committed to the Mexican theme means we know an amazing mariachi band, and they will be joining us for a night of live music and good times! We are so thankful for every customer who has supported us over the past three years and we would love them all to join us from 4pm – there will be beers, Mexican street corn and margaritas all round. Kids are welcome, no set seating, so no bookings are required!’
In addition, the crew at Chupacabra have been thinking about some toasty indoor activities to keep everyone all warm and bring the community together – over the next few months they will be showing some cult cinema classics with a south-of-the-border flavour!
The first of these movie nights for which bookings are required will be Thursday 17 June: it’s Dusk till Dawn, a wonderfully gory flick starring young George Clooney (adults only for this one!). Keep an eye out for the next title showing Thursday 22 July. Movie snacks and specialty themed cocktails will be available during the film, which starts at 7.30pm and those who book ahead through Chupacabra’s Resy site will get a free Mexican spiced popcorn.
As well as these events and the popular Wednesday Chook Dinner Night, Taco Tuesday is returning for a limited time only – customers can tune in weekly to Instagram @chupabyron to find out the flavour of the week, which comes in at a tantalising $3 per taco in a plate of three. A nine dollar dinner!
I lived in Suffolk Park for a while. It’s a great place to live, and whilst it’s also a magnet for visitors, those people who live in the Suffolk Park area count themselves pretty lucky to have a quality venue they can get to without having to drive into Byron. Amelia’s got a shout-out for these locals, who are doubly welcome to drop in for the birthday party: ‘Chupacabra is so thankful for all our customers who have helped us remain open and thriving through all the turbulence of the past year especially. We would be nothing without our community and we hope some of our wonderful locals will join us for these winter events!’
