Pub specials in Geelong, plus ravenous on Pulse FM

 

 

Recently I was offered a spot on local Geelong radio station 94.7 The Pulse, as a food and entertainment reporter for the Thursday drive program, The Musik Cube. This has been an amazing opportunity for me as it is a step in the right direction for what I want to achieve career wise.

Every week I report on what’s going on in and around Geelong, and as the show has a music focus I often report on things that bring food and music together. Inspired by the Geelong Addy’s search for Geelong’s best pizza, this week on the show we discussed where you can find Geelong’s best chicken parmi.

So far Belmont Hotel, Bush Inn, Wharf Shed and Bended Elbow have all got a mention, and the results will be published on this blog in the coming weeks. In the mean time, here’s a list of the weekly specials you can find in Geelong’s pubs – if there’s anything I’ve missed please let me know!
