I have no idea what we could do (I'm notoriously bad at thinking of such things).
But whatever it is, I'm up for it!

So the place we meet up is going to be at the botantic gardens in the city, on the 18th or 19th of april? I am just trying to get the details right about it. I will come if I can, but I proboly couldn't come if it was in the night, so what time will we all meet up?

Definitely during the sunlit hours. I wouldn't recommend hanging out in the Botanic Gardens at night, really. Probably meet up around, say, 1100 for the picnic? Then to the arcade a bit later in the afternoon? Us oldies could always hang around for a drink or two after that, if anyone is keen. Whether it's the 18th or the 19th is really up to all of us. I am available either day- does anyone have a preference?

Drinking hey.....

I find that usually fits in around a uni timetable.

Drinking? Where? Where?

I'm in.

Ok, so for the picnic, will we designate food or what?

As for a day, I'm good either way ^_^

I highly recommend a Saturday, being as a lot of us have to be back at work on Monday, so we wouldn't be able to make a night of it on Sunday.

So, this is what we have so far:

Saturday, April 18, 11 am
City Botanic Gardens, Main Gate
(that's the one mid-way between the uni and the river)
BYO BBQ food, plates to share always welcome!

My Brisvegan gentleman is no longer my Brisvegan gentleman and therefore I am no longer going to Brisbane to visit him. I was looking forward to meeting you all, too! Sorry, guys.

You can sleep on myGhostWolfe's couch!*

'Tis a shame, though, you missed the Sydney meetup I went to as well! :D

I dunno about everyone else, but I'm going to beg off the early BBQ. I'm going to Atmosphere to see the Tycho Brahe sat night, so I will be going into the city later. Anyone up for coffee/pool/clubbing would be more than welcome!! We could meet up in the afternoon, and for anyone interested, doors open at 8, but the Tychos won't be on till around 11ish :)


ETA: I'm going to see X-Men Origins: Wolverine at the Myer Center on Tuesday, April 28, 19:15; everyone's welcome to that too.

Public holiday is coming up, woo! May 5th is Labor Day and seems like a good time to have the meet-up. Same place and same time as the last proposed one pretty much.

Thoughts?

I'm sure I could see my way to a meetup over these gloriously long hollidays we have coming up.

We should find somewhere to drink silly amounts of alcohol.

C'mon, you slack bunch. You let our meetup thread fall off the front page!

I don't usually do Sundays, but would anyone be up for Coffee and Archives this weekend mayhaps? Round 1300?

Turns out I won't be in the city as planned this Sunday. But I might be next Sunday, so the offer still stands if anyone's interested.

Bumpity bump! Luke and I want to go looking at cool steampunk shops and whatnot in the Valley, not this weekend, but next one - the 7th or 8th, I think it is. Saturday or Sunday (though I don't know if everything is open on Sundays, does anyone else know?), we're pretty flexible (especially seeing as I don't know if I'm working or not yet) and we want YOU to join us! I'm thinking a wander through the shops, and some food, and good times will be had by all.

No dice, sorry. November is completely booked up with NaNo.

I'm available for write-ins (and I can repost details of the Brisbane writing meets I get from the NaNo forums, if anyone's interested), but not for socialising >_>

/angell

EDIT: speaking of NaNo meetups:

Saturday, Oct 31: NaNo Lauch Party; Spring Hill Corner, Roma Street Parklands. BBQ, starts 11am
Sunday, Nov 1: Write-in; Coffee Club on Park Road in Milton. Starts 11:30.
