Northcote's giant beer garden slash food truck park, Welcome to Thornbury, is celebrating another hybrid this April. 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 Nothin' but Garlic Bread, Mr Burger, Chef Calamari, Dr Sous, Pizza Pony and Gozleme Station.
There'll be garlic-bread burgers, garlic-bread gozleme, fancy spins and foil-wrapped classics. Plus, matching savoury cocktails from the bar, and garlicky ice-cream for dessert.
Kids can stick around till 8pm, dogs are welcome all day and gates close at 10pm.
