BBQ, Burgers, fries and beer are among all things American at the Cally Hotel tonight as the bar celebrates the 4th of July.
Owner Lucas Reid said his five years in the United States had given him a love for the holiday.
"It is a family holiday," he said.
The night will include a US-themed trivia competition, live music from Russ Goodear, plus a special menu filled with slow-cooked and smoked BBQ.
"We also have a special American IPA beer from Brooklyn Brewery on tap," Mr Reid said.
"It is a lot more hoppier and bitter, but it goes better with food."
Mr Reid said the night was a good chance for expats to celebrate while far away from home, and locals to experience some down-home US food.
After spending five years in the US, Mr Reid has a strong affiliation with the country.
"The style of food we are serving is better suited to our winter climate," he said.
"And it is always a good excuse to have a party."
