Sure, if you come to Warrnambool you can help yourself.

No worries :).

Can't believe I missed this! Though i am also gluten free, dumplings have been the toughest to give up, they were an integral part of my childhood city trips!

I'm inner-NE Melbourne, and would love to come to the next meet-up :) My partner can only come on weekends, but I'm flexible...

It's been great just reading the general forum and seeing all these mustachian people around the world - to think that there are lots of us just here in melbourne is very cool!!

A BBQ could work well...i'm not put off by cold weather, there are lots of public bbqs under cover... :P

Someone should start a gluten-free dumpling shop, they would make a killing!

Which are the good central public bbq spots that you know of, cakie?

There's a bunch all along the Yarra, from down near Crown all the way up to Richmond and the MCG.

I second the BBQ idea! If we all did a little potluck for food to bring, we could set a maximum price per-person and try to all stay under it. Mustache fight!

Damn, forgot you lived out in the middle of nowhere! New plan...

The BBQ along the Yarra sounds great, although I've never done that. Happy to bring something to share. When is everyone free? A Friday night in June or July? When are you leaving, limeandpepper?

All along the yarra there's lots... I noticed that many of us are in the north - would it be easiest to go somewhere like Fairfield boathouse? The parks around there have lots of bbqs and it links to the yarra trail (& darebin creek trail / trainline paths etc)

Whenever i go past flagstaff gardens theres always people using the bbq there... I suspect middle of winter it'd be a good spot :)

It would be nice to have some under cover availability - mustashianism doesn't mean getting pneumonia from the notorious Melbourne drizzle (besides, if there is some under cover, it won't rain).

Hey Melbourne Mustachians,

I'm really excited this group has taken off! I live in Carlton, right by the Gardens and I'd be willing to loan my courtyard (if sunny)/kitchen (if Melbourne wintery) sometime from mid-July onwards for another get together. The Yarra BBQs are great, but maybe we'd have to hold off until September (or November, if this year is anything like last year).

Ooh that sounds great, Liz! So you'll be back in Melbourne from mid-July onwards, I presume? :D

Yep, I get back July 16th, and don't start uni until the 28th so I'd be happy to host something in that time. What sort of timing suits people for a BBQ? A weekday evening/weekend?

That's awesome, Liz! It's really nice of you to offer.

The 18th, 19th, or 20th would be great for me - I have plans the weekend after that. I'm not particularly fussed which day, though.

Absolutely! You don't even have to ask. Everyone is welcome.

Liz, do you have a preference for the date?

It seems like LizI has not been active on the forums for a while.
Just in case should we think of some alternative plans.
An inexpensive dinner (possibly using entertianment book vouchers) or a coffee or any place where it's not too crowded so we can get a discussion going.

I'm unlikely to be able to make any more meets as I'm leaving Melbourne at the end of July and it's a mad rush to get all loose ends tied up, but I'll continue to keep an eye out on this thread... just in case. :)

I get back July 16th

That's today! So I'm sure she will be around the forums again soon...

Are we still planning for this weekend? I can't do Sunday lunchtime, but anything else is fine. Maybe have a backup of meeting for coffee? Then if the weather is nice, we can instead have an impromptu walk to relax in a park nearby...?

If this is all too last minute, there is always next weekend instead.

Argh - hi everyone! As was noticed, yes I did disappear from the forums for a while, I'm so sorry! I'm back in Melbourne, and finally remembered to follow this up. Hope everyone is still keen, and can forgive me. I can definitely offer up my place for a courtyard bbq (if this crazy weather leaves us). Otherwise I've started going along to the Free Feed Street Kitchen on Wednesday nights again, they had a huge spread this week and didn't even finish it so more mouths are welcome. Bring bags and tupperware because there's a stack of bread and other leftovers as well.

If we do want to have a bbq, maybe people could start throwing dates in the ring. Weekday evenings work for me, or weekends. I'm away the 23/24 August, but other than that I'm pretty free.

I'm just glad you're still around and keen for the meetup, Liz! I definitely am. I can't make it next weekend. How about the 16th or the 30th?

Yup, the 16th or the 30th would be fine by me. Maybe if a few more people suggest some dates we can make a poll to see what's most convenient.

To meet up at Free Feed Street Kitchen? Or organise our own thing? I'm free from 6:30ish that night, so either would suit me.

There might be some important football game on that date.
I suggest we get this thing moving faster.
How is the 30th of August for everyone?

Unfortunately, I'm going to be out of town on work on the 30th (and the weekend after that too). :(

Well I'll be at FFSK tonight, it's on Smith St, Fitzroy. I guess I should find something with a mustache on it to be recognisable. If I don't, I'll be wearing a pink tshirt with a brontosaurus (or apatosaurus for the dinosaur nerds) on it and a grey jacket. I'll also be the one scooping up armfuls of bread to take home for the freezer.
Otherwise the 30th works for me as well!

Yes, we should get on to this while the weather is fining up! This weekend looks nice and sunny, I'm busy for the few weekends after that until after the Melbourne marathon (anyone else running?). Otherwise I am a bit freer during the week, especially in the evenings.

I'll be around! We have airbnb guests staying at our place so I can't offer my courtyard, but there's plenty of park space around for a picnic/BBQ. Maybe one of the BBQs along the Yarra? I imagine it will be pretty busy though, all of Melbourne will be making the most of the weather. Otherwise Carlton Gardens/Macarthur Place/Edinburgh Gardens/any other park in the city/inner north would suit me, though I don't mind travelling a bit.

I'm gonna have to pass on this one. As beautiful as Sunday is shaping out to be, my husband got hit by a car while on his bike yesterday! He's okay, but needs me around the next few days to get around. You guys go ahead and enjoy, though! I'll catch the next one.

Ahh, I'm so sorry to hear about your husband, kaetana! Hope he's ok and recovers soon.

I'm free after 2pm on Sunday. Does anyone have a preference for a park or another place to meet? I think it'd still fun with a handful of people, at least I'll get to finally meet some of you after missing out on the last one.

Is this on??? Fitzroy gardens are OK by me. I think there's only 3 of us - but we could start later if POTM wants - how late is later?

I won't be looking after about 6am tomorrow because I'll be travelling, so please say whether it's on or not before then. Where in the Fitzroy Gardens (it's been many years since I was there, and absolutely ages since I saw the fairy tree) - the temple of the wind (nice and small, easy to find people)?

Seems like there's 4 of us.
How about we meet out the front of parliament house and make our way there together.
Haven't really been to Fitzroy gardens so don't know my way around there too well.
