Which topics should we discuss instead?
Maybe about ways to accumulate CC points for the purpose of SQ suites travel? ;)

Sounds good, will you be settling the bill for Saturday night with penegal, or through the bank account details provided in post 1?

I am not aware where pre-drink drinks are being held, but you have the floor! :)

I just sent out a PM to those I have yet to receive funds from. If you haven't received a PM (and have indicated what you'd like to attend) then please consider yourself paid up. We have 36 currently paid up.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!

Already checked in with sequence 1!! :D

I still owe penegal 50 clams from the AFL Grand Final night do so is it OK just to cash him up on the night? I'll transfer the funds if that is what you so desire?

As for a bar for pre festivities drinks I'll come back to you guys on that one.

I'm sure that would work nicely for him, seeing as he's doing the bookings anyway and I will have to eventually transfer what I've received to him. :)

Not as yet, but I'll PM you my phone number for the day, and I'm guessing it'll be a case of someone just posting where we end up.

That will probably guarantee that you won't have too many conversations with anybody during dinner, so if that's what floats your boat...

I normally just check my seating has stuck and do the actual check-in on my way to the airport, so I don't lose any flexibility to change flights (but then again, you're P1, so probably have that automatically).

The Spring / Exhibition / Bourke / Lonsdale St region would be most appropriate given the location of the Restaurant (35 L'il Bourke).

Weather forecast for tomorrow evening is good (Max 28°):
Friday
6pm - Welcome Drinks at European Bier Cafe and AER bar, 120 Exhibition St, Melbourne
These two venues are essentially the same. The European Bier Cafe is located on the lower floors, and the AER bar is the open air rooftop bar. If the weather is good we will be upstairs in the rooftop bar, but if it is raining we will be on one of the other floors. Keep an eye on the thread for our location.
Cost: Drinks at bar prices

OK unless the Imperial Lords of Organisational Committee have any objections might I suggest that I will indeed be enjoying 1 or 3 convivial pre-dinner drinks at the Imperial Hotel, 2-8 Bourke St, East Melb from 7pm - Pub in Melbourne | Function Venue Melbourne CBD | The Imperial Hotel :: Imperial Hotel - map here - 2 minute walk to Mezzo.

Anybody wanting to join me from 7pm on more than welcome - this would be a good chance for me to fill you guys in on the character flaws of boomy, kpc, JohnK, straitman etc before getting to Mezzo :D
