Don't go to Sydney, baby if you know what's good for you, I have my fears it'll end in tears if you do September 1, 2009 10:11 PM   Subscribe

Sydney meetup sometime between 24-27th of September?

I'll be in Sydney for a few days attending a workshop and wondered if anyone fancies meeting up? I'll be in Manly & should be free on the evenings of 24th, 25th & 26th from about 7pm for a dinner meetup?

Manly! This should sort out the boys from the men (with walking frames).

Meetup sounds good. Does it have to be in Manly or can you make it to somewhere more central?

And evening! We tend to be afternoon meeter-uppers. If you make it somewhere near the city, I'll come along.

(And advance warning for the rest of yous: My best college friend and fellow MeFite emd3737 is coming out to visit in October! She's here from the October 9 - November 2, so we're gonna have to squeeze a meetup in there somewhere.)

I don't know my way around Sydney at all, but might be convinced to try my luck not getting lost if Manly is inconvenient. The workshop I'm attending runs 10am - 6pm over the four days & I was hoping to not stray too far from the hotel so I can get to bed at a decent hour. Giving & receiving bodywork for 8 hours a day is HARD WORK, you know, so I may be quite knackered and/or spaced out the whole time I'm in town anyway.

Count me interested but for the car-less like myself, Manly is a bunfight to get to.

Manly's OK to get to without a car, it costs you $6.40 and you get a nice ride on the harbour. It's getting back if you miss the ferry that's a pain in the arse.

I missed the ten-year meetup so I'd be super-keen to make this one, though like web-goddess and embrangled, nearer the city is better for me.

But I live where the sagebrush grows, fiasco, and want to get home before the witching hour...

Potential compromise: we could have dinner in the city, and one of us could meet goshling off the ferry at Circular Quay so she doesn't have to navigate a strange city alone.

Anyone know a good place to eat at that end of town?
