Northcote's giant beer garden slash food truck park, Welcome to Thornbury, is celebrating another hybrid this March. Garlic bread.
The trusty pizza-side staple will finally get top billing at the annual Garlic Bread Festival.
Stock up on chewing gum, then head in from 12pm to sample twists on the humble buttery bread logs from Melbourne favourites such as Mr Burger, Pizza Pony and Gozleme Station.
There'll be garlic-bread burgers, garlic-bread gozleme, garlic-bread pizza, fancy spins and foil-wrapped classics. Plus, garlic-bread ice-cream and (somehow sweet) garlic-bread waffles. To drink: beer-and-mint combos to guard against garlic breath.
Kids can stick around till 8pm, dogs are welcome all day.
From 12pm to 10pm.
