    Regrettably I am definitely out - will be in CBR for work.

    I guess you have an acceptable reason... :)

    I seem to move around almost as much as you these days :confused:
     
  4. Is there room for one more? I'll be in MEL Tues-Thurs for the foreseeable future and have never attended any gathering.

    Here's the web site.

    They have a special on Bugs for March (and other things).

    Specials - The Olive Tree

    Anyone around the CBD pre dinner?

    Anything near eg Crowne Plaza/crown casino/federation Square that would be suitable?

    Unfortunately Mal we have to pull the pin tonight also - I am off to PEK Thu morn and just got stuff needs doing.

    As for drinkies b4 OT - go have a drink with Chloe in Young & Jacksons - it's a no-brainer - then tram out St Kilda Rd - damn I wish I was joining you.

    If nothing else, there's Y*J's (Chloe) or the Pub at Fed square - a short tram ride or 15 minute walk to the venue.

    I see if I can research Tuesday "Happy Hours".

    The pub at Fed Square is 'Transport' - I love this place b4/aft footy - but it gets really crowded and rowdy - maybe not so much Tue nts not sure - Y & J will be more civilised for a chat

    There is still Royce Hotel on St Kilda Rd - 10min walk to OT - go have a drink with Derryn or is he in Canberra at moment? But be warned they no longer serve CUB beers at Royce so I have blackballed them. But it is still most convenient.

    I can't make it to the OT but can meet up for a pee dinner drink or two.
    I'll keep an eye on the thread to see where that will be.

    Pee should be pre.
    Either auto correct or fat fingers :eek:

    " but can meet up for a pee "
    Normally, that's after/during dinner ... :p

    Also reminder that OT is licensed and BYO for those who drink wine and like to bring a bottle.

    P.S. Won’t be able to join pre-drinks. See you all tonight.

    Is there space for one more? I'd like to come to pre-dinner drinks too.
