I'm free on all those dates and work in the city so that's easy. If you want to do games, the cafe myriade is nice enough and affordable. I haven't been to any of the CBD bars for a while, pretty much not since I have to pay for my own drinks :)

The bobeche used to do an ok happy hour from memory.... Stables is fine too during the week

So for December after-work meetup: we still haven't narrowed down the date or location any further.

Dates still in contention:
next Tuesday 15 Dec, Wednesday 16 Dec, or week after - Monday 21 Dec or Tuesday 22 Dec?

Anyone care to vote / have a say?

And for January Board Games / Potluck Night at the HappierHome, dates still in contention are:

Friday 9 January
Saturday 10 January
Saturday 17 January

Anyone care to weigh in on those dates if they're not available for all of them? Otherwise I'll just pick one ;-)

Um...
Friday 9 January
Saturday 10 January
Saturday 17 January
... did you mean Friday 8 Jan, Sat 9 Jan, Sat 16 Jan, or am I doing dates all wrong?
Sat 9th Jan would be best for me! could also do 8th but not 16th, now that I look at my calendar

Yes. Yes, I would be doing those dates wrong. You have passed the test!! Friendship: accepted.

Let's just call it then: January Boardgames / Potluck Meetup is the evening of Saturday 9 January.

As per previous Meetups at the HappierHome, if I have met you at least once before then I am very happy for you to come along (and to bring along your partners/BFF/whoever it is you bring along to social functions - for example if my BFF is free then I may invite her as she has mentioned previously that you guys sound cool, and she'd like to meet you. She's not wrong!). Please either comment in this thread or PM me to let me know you would like to be included, so I can provide you with my address etc.

Are we happy to leave the potluck aspect totally open and see what wonderful combinations of foods we end up with? (My vote: yes. This is how we end up with awesome+bizarre combos. Like five different types of salad. Yum!!).

Probably will be there, will let you know closer to the date (might be going camping that weekend).

I will bring bananagram (has anyone played that?) and some non-banana food (I really dislike bananas).

Slightly off topic but in our recent meetup some people mentioned an interest in beekeeping. This may be a good opportunity: http://www.postcodehoney.com.au/about.html

Can I vote for next Tuesday, please?
Ding ding ding! We have a winner! OK, Tuesday the 15th it is. Play nice with my friend, it took a bit of convincing to get him to come and he's anxious we'll all patronise* him about his spending :P

*Or would that be matronise instead?

The real question is, will you bike??

So far for the 15 December Meetup our rollcall is Anatidaev, Melody, Norgirl, and me. Any other takers? Anyone want to just be decisive and pick a venue?
Note: if you are planning to come to this Meetup, and do not post to let us know that, then if something goes wrong and it's cancelled or shifted to a new location no one will know to get in touch with you to tell you what's happened. We cancelled a Meetup once when the forum was down and only three people were planning to show up as far as we knew - it turned out two other people went far out of their way to come to that Meetup and no one had been in touch with them because we didn't know they were planning to come!

For the 9 January Meetup our rollcall is Englyn, Ms Terror, Limeandpepper, Anatidaev, Melody, maybe-Stripey, and me. Anyone else at this stage?

There were no objections to The Stables, so I think we should meet there on Tuesday 15th Dec. 5:30pm?

Nope :-) we have dining chairs, desk chairs, couches, and even outdoor chairs if we need them! Room for all the lovely people.

So Meetup is 5.30pm tomorrow (Tuesday 15 Dec), at the Belasyse (I'm assuming that's what you guys meant when you said belause?).

Given we have at least one newbie, should we meet out the front and have some way of recognising each other?

I do not own a single piece of yellow clothing.

Can I count 'yellow' hair as my yellow thing? Slash, just rely on their being another MMMer near me wearing yellow if Norgirl is trying to identify us?

I thank you for this kind offer and will consent to HOLD the yellow hat prominently for visibility, but will politely decline any invitations to place it on my head.

Clearly I am the only one here who feels that yellow is not an appropriate colour for humans to wear. Maybe you all look good in yellow? It makes me look like a steak that's starting to turn and developing that greenish, oil-patch sheen.

I'm coming to this one now! my other event has been cancelled so after work drinks instead sounds like a real treat :)

Success!

Just bumping this to see if anyone else is interested :-)

Also, there's something buggy going on with PMs not allowing me to add names to a new message, so you may or may not receive a PM with details for 9 Jan from me today, but it'll happen soon.
