The Saint Kilda Elephant and Wheelbarrow is noted for hosting Neighbours Nights, wherein certain members of the Neighbours cast (a rather popular Australian soap) mingle with common street people. To any Australian, this doesn't sound like much of a deal at all, but I know of some Brits who'd give their right arm just for the possibility of maybe meeting, say, Dr. Karl.

It seems a somewhat of a strange idea to have well-known celebrities hanging out at pubs (and advertising the fact), but for some reason it seems like a typically Australian thing to be doing.
