Sorry guys, I have found out I have a non-negotiable church commitment coming up next Sunday late morning/early afternoon. Will have to pass on the meetup if it's the Sunday, unfortunately :(

Tuesday 23rd April, after work, in the CBD?

Sorry guys, I have found out I have a non-negotiable church commitment coming up next Sunday late morning/early afternoon. Will have to pass on the meetup if it's the Sunday, unfortunately :(

Given that both stripey and englyn are out for this Sunday, why don't we try for next weekend instead? Maybe the 29th?

That weekend I'm on call-- I'm happy to show up but it'll need to be somewhere close to parking just in case I get called out. So... given this, if the 29th works for people that's fabulous, but if this weekend coming up suits the majority of people then we should go with that (because I may be a complete no-show if I'm unlucky)

23 April, CBD I am in :) And urgh... I'm not supposed to be drinking at bars at all this month so I guess I will be on soft drinks :(
I'll try my best for this weekend, but post grad is crushing me at the moment, so not sure I have time for both.

Yay! Perhaps we can do something other than a bar? I just found this really old article, so I'm not sure how relevant it is:
http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/top-20-cheap-eats-in-perth/story-e6frg12c-1111117979979
Annalakshmi sounds pretty nifty, has anyone been there? The "eat as you like, pay as you feel" is interesting, I've been to a couple of places like that here in Melbourne as well.

My friends go to Annalakshmi, but always perfectly timed for when I am already busy! Been hanging out to go for years! Lets do this!

Annalakshmi is fantastic, I probably end up there once or twice a year. Weeknights are pretty quiet, weekends you'd better book. Be warned: spiciness of food does vary (but I've never found it insanely spicy). Have fun (I can't really do weeknights in the CBD, unfortunately)

So are we doing the 29th? And if yes, does morning or afternoon suit everyone better? I'm free for either.

Tentative plan of annalakshmi on the 23rd April, to be finalised closer in :-)

I just saw 23 is a Sunday, not a Monday like I originally thought. I am in, but I can't do any earlier than 7pm.
Who else is in?

Omg, yes! I got the months confused .(i thought 23 mar and 29 april not the other way round)... Next weekend might be ok though but it is boyfriend weekend so i will have to see.he is doing drive in drive out work these days so its always a bit hard to commit to stuff now on the weekend he isnt working.

Soooo... 29th in the morning? Anyone have a brilliant idea of where to go? If not, maybe a cafe where we can get coffees and those of us who are hungry can get eggs on toast?

Assuming I have my dates all correct, we should go to Shots on Lake since we're finally going at a time when they're open!

Opens at 8, so we could meet then, unless that's too early for people? Would provide plenty of time to chat.

I'm pretty certain I own nothing in an animal print. I can wear something with a picture of an animal on it, though.

8am sounds good.
Though the only thing I have with animals on it is pjs and I'm not wearing those to Shots.

I think I have something with an animal on it...

(I certainly don't own anything animal print-- things made to look like they came from a dead endangered animal are not something I could get away with in my line of work)

Can't come after all :( hijacked by husband for urgent home maintenance after nearly 3 months of spending most of my free time building a dragon (*ahem. fair enough*).
My favourite t-shirt has kingfishers on it. I may wear it Sat just because :)

I actually went to my wardrobe and checked...no cats, but found something with a butterfly that I forgot about.

I think we referred to the 23rd as a Tuesday earlier in the thread, but I'm pretty sure it's a Wednesday.

Given that it's only next week now (yay!) shall we make firmer plans? Limeandpepper mentioned she'd be bringing her SO, so I'll talk the BF into coming (he's shy) for some more male company for Mr Limeandpepper.

I got home just fine and dandy :) thanks all for a pleasant evening.
fun fact: the blue cat stops running to the barrack street jetty after 7.15pm... So I walked up to the museum.
