    Event description

    Hey Melbourne, fancy celebrating the Sri Lankan Tamil New Year with us*? Come and join us on Tuesday 16th April at Collingwood's Molly Rose Brewing, with former refugee Chef Niro Vithyasekar from Tuka Tuka Kothu Roti Man. He will be cooking a 3-course feast on the night, vegetarians and vegans are catered for too. There's also a special dance performance to bring the New Year vibes. 

    "I was introduced to cooking by my mother, and as I am the oldest brother, I helped with preparing meals most days anyway." - Chef Niro Vithyasekar

    There will be lots of drinks available thanks to the Molly Rose Brewing team. And there's more, we're doing a Raffle Draw, with prizes including books and a Hamper with Bite! Raffle sales will be donated to Palmera, a charity that provides food relief to villages in Sri Lanka.  Guests can also opt to donate a portion of their tickets to Palmera.

    Thank you to Molly Rose Brewing for hosting us again!
