Sydney meetup - reminder & possible change of venue [more...]
posted by UbuRoivas to MetaFilter Gatherings at 4:42 PM (11 comments total)

The latest Sydney meetup was scheduled for Sun 17th September at the Alfred in turns out that this is the day of the Marrickville Festival (pdf). Anybody interested in a shift of venue? The crowds could be both an upside & a downside. There is a half-decent pub on the main drag (The Royal Exchange). If it's too much hassle, then I'm easy. All these festivals are pretty similar, and Newtown & Glebe are both coming up soon...

It's also the day of the Marathon (and Half-Marathon, and Bridge Run - which I'm doing), which might make traffic difficult for anybody not coming on a train...

first 150 ppls get the spitroast & middy deal.

are you prepared to show up at opening time?

and battle the old fart regulars in their stained bonds singlets & shorts, TAB slips in their pockets & formguides wedged into their brut-33'd armpits?

we could also end up with one continegent in marrickville, one in camperdown, the way this kitten-herding is going.

Did we come to any sort of consensus on this?

um, no.

probably best just to stick to the alfred - not many people seemed to notice this second thread.

that, and the fact that festival crowds + the only pub i can think of in marrickville rd = a shitfight for drinks, seats, pool games etc.
