Dino-holics every Dino-where. we are perfectly pleased to share with youse more incredible international devotion to our Dino from Aussieland that has happened Dino-day in and Dino-day for tons of Dino-decades. From the pen of Mr. Simon Johanson, swank scriber for "The Sydney Morning Herald," comes news of the imminent demolision of an Australian Alps "watering hole" tagged "Mt Buller’s Kooroora Hotel" "to make way for a $40 million development." So youse are askin', "likes what's the Dino-connect.
In Mr. Johanson's writin's he happenss to mention that the hotel "famously plays the Dean Martin classic That’s Amore before closing its doors at night." Likes the pub which is known as "Hoo Ha" was opened in 1953, the same year that our Dino recorded "That's Amore" for the Martin and Lewis big screen classic, "The Caddy." In doin' a bit of Dino-research we learned that "That's Amore" was released on November 7, 1953, so we ain't sure when the pub began the Dino-tradition, but it musta been goin' on for at least 60 years or more.
Likes we stand in absolute awe of this wonderful waterin' hole who has daily hugely homaged our Dino for so so many many years...likes totally totally Dino-outstandin' for Dino-sure! And, as you read more of the prose, we're not surprised when Simon notes that "property manager Martin Ansell" stated, "A few nostalgic tears might be shed when That’s Amore plays for the last time." since the pub will be recreated in the new construction, we trust the Dino-tradition will continue on once the new pub opens.
We thanks Mr. Simon Johanson and all the folks at "The Sydney Morning Herald" for puttin' us on to the deeply delightful Dino-devotion. To read the prose at it's original source and in total, simply clicks on the tag of this Dino-report. And, likes, of course, we couldn't miss the op to share a classic vid clip of our great great Dino croonin' this great great song for your Dino-listenin' and viewin' pleasure!
Yours in Dino,
Dino Martin Peters
Bumper snow sees alpine resorts bounce back
By Simon Johanson
22 September 2018
A bumper snow season has underpinned record property sales in Australia’s alps that will see one of the region’s best known watering holes, Mt Buller’s Kooroora Hotel, demolished next month to make way for a $40 million development.
The snowfields pub which opened in 1953 is affectionately known as the ‘Hoo Ha’ and famously plays the Dean Martin classic That’s Amore before closing its doors at night.
“The Kooroora is quite simply where Mt Buller parties. It’s the social heart of the village. A few nostalgic tears might be shed when That’s Amore plays for the last time,” he said.
