Bingara Launches Greek Cafe Museum

Bingara Launches Greek Cafe Museum

You’re invited to Bingara on the 5th and 6th of April, 2014 for the launch of the first Greek cafe museum in Australia. When Bingara opened the newly-restored Peter’s Cafe beside the Roxy Theatre in 2011 there was dancing and plate-smashing in the streets, noisy and nostalgic slurping at the milk bar, and a great gathering of kindred souls around the Greek food-laden tables that stretched from kerb to kerb. I had a ball. And the little New South Wales town is set to do it all again as it opens a museum in the rooms above the cafe. One of the highlights of the weekend – apart from seeing how the curators will represent Australia’s iconic Greek Cafe/Milk Bar – is the speaking program, usually held in the nearby theatre. This year I will focus on the food proprietors served and how that sat within the meat-and-three-veg cuisine of the time.
