So it's about time for a couple of dinners, to meet those AFF locals I already know and meet some new faces behind the handles.

I have the pleasure of heading to MEL for a week - the first couple of days have client meetings (Monday AM to Wed lunchtime) and then a Conference from Wed afternoon to Friday afternoon. Also staying at the MEL DoubleTree and according to their posts, know that at least 2 others who I will likely both miss by hours (@JessicaTam and @Matt_01 both there on night of 24th).

So I am available on Monday 25th and Tuesday 26th evenings. I am being taken out to dinner on Wednesday (Squires Loft @ Docklands) and have an Awards function to attend on Thursday night.

So call out to @blackcat20 , @TomVexille , @Cruiser Elite , @qaz , @penegal , @boomy (if you're in town), @Hvr , @Admin , @serfty , @straitman , @Mattg , @nlagalle , @Freq Flier 2013, @TonyHancock

MONDAY 25/11
Time: 6.00pm for 6:30pm
Venue: Emelia (http://www.emiliamelbourne.com.au/).
Rear of 360 Little Collins Street, in Gills Alley. A short walk from the corner of Elizabeth St towards Queen St
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL DINNER BOOKINGS PRIOR TO 7PM ARE ALLOCATED A 2 HOUR SITTING.

I should be able to make it on the Monday night. I'll just have to get a baby sitter for my daughters.

List me as copper.

I have an all day session on the Wednesday (in MEL), so some chance of being in town and available.

@penegal, is there anything other than copper for you...😳. So you might be available for Tuesday night then ;)

@boomy, that's the full day of Conference for me. Might be hard for our schedules to align...

We unfortunately can't do dinners at the moment unless we do then at home.

Yes, that was a conundrum that I was musing over @blackcat20 - I want to get to see you and @TomVexille so unless nobody can do Tuesday and we have a private dinner together? Thoughts - if you are available.

I buggered up my Hilton accomodation dates as well. However @QF WP I will be MEL, I can make dinner on Mon-Wed nights and fly out on Thur. As advance warning and experience a combination of @boomy, @penegal and myself can result in pain the morning following. Just saying.

You and I could probably take the same train Tuesday. I've got team lunch in the city that day ;)

I have drunk a couple of times with @boomy and more than I can count on 2 hands with @penegal. The latter is the concerning one for me. So adding you to that list as well. I am just as worried about @Cruiser Elite, I haven't had the pleasure yet, but hoping to this trip. Looks like being the Monday night for us - looking forward to it.

Works for me; TV can confirm if he’s available.

Ok cool we are all round to BC’s and Tommy’s - that under-stair wine rack ain’t gonna know what hit it!!!
So the Tuesday night suits the 4 of us then? Are you happy to host us @blackcat20 and @TomVexille. @Cruiser Elite has a bottle of Champagne with my name on it, so we might as well drink it, rather than me having to take it home. l might tee up to see my Blackburn and Mitcham clients on Tuesday. I could also see another colleague at Frankston in the late afternoon, so might not be on your train TV.

I could possibly do Monday night if the location is close to or in the CBD. TBC.

I have booked the babysitter for Monday from 5pm. Looking forward to seeing everyone and meeting some members for the first time. I'm not sure if I can make it to the city by 6pm but should be there by 6.30pm.
