On November 6th we were all lucky enough to sneak out of the office for some Melbourne Cup Day celebrations. The Fresco tradition is to all pop on a frock (Sean has special permission to skip this), stick something on our heads (He is not so lucky here), sip some bubbly and nibble away at some delicious lunch until the big race rolls in. This year we went across to Lil Darlin’ on Victoria St in Darlinghurst. We put together a bit of a sweep, perched in front of the screen at 2:55pm and crossed our fingers. Congratulations went to Eimear, who won the sweep and also backed the winner (although on last report, she still couldn’t find the winning ticket in her handbag!). But fun was had by all – especially by Andrea, Trisc and Lou afterwards at Messina Gelato! We hope you all had as fun a day as we did! Happy horses!
