Lets do this Sydney

As I mentioned back here, everyone else is having meetups, and we're looking slow to the party.

As an example, just in the current upcoming list we have Adelaide's monthly gathering on February 22nd, Melbourne's next in what seems like a barrage of regular gatherings on February 25th, and finally Brisbane and Perth on March 4.

Having taken on the task of organising something for us, I've struggled with actually having any co-conspirators, but there are multiple of you that have mentioned you're interested in coming, so I'm making an executive decision (as suggested by Adelaide's @mattclarke) to just invite you all to a location at a set time.

For time, I'm pretty happy to go with undercutting Perth's first one, and I'm a fan of multiple cities having gatherings at the same time, which leads to the decision of hosting on the 25th at 3 pm to match up with Melbourne's event.

The location I've chosen is The Bavarian at World Square. I've not been before, but it's central, has a decent amount of space, and has a large range of food options around it, as well as some internal options.

I'm hoping it's a fine day and we'll be able to sit outside at one of these many tables

It is located on Level 1, up the stairs under the dragon tail, and opposite The Cidery, Burger Project and Din Tai Fung. Inside the bar is also a Fratelli Famous cooking up their pizzas (don't think they do any of the pastas at this one)

Getting there is easiest by public transport, with Town Hall station being about 500 metres away, and Central Station being 750 metres away in the other direction.

Feel free to bring others with you, and certainly spread the word. If I have a vague idea of numbers it would be great to be able to let them know if we're going to be a handful or a dozen+.

I should be there before 3 pm, and still look like the photo of me here or in my Discord profile image. I'll be trying to be at one of the outside tables, and I'll either be reading on my phone or playing a game. I'll have Hive and Tantrix with me. I'll make sure they're on the table too. If anyone else wants to bring something noticeable or identifying, mention it in the comments and I'll update the info here.

Great Job @ratticus !
I've also added this to the SteemAustralia Meetups page - http://steemaustralia.com/meetups/

·

Oh great, thanks for that random. Didn't actually know the page existed even, so that's in my bookmarks now too.

Can attach my name - Matt Lindus as the contact.
RSVP isn't 'required', but it'd be nice to have some idea on numbers. Maybe update the RSVP field after a few days though to make people head here?

name added

Oooo I gotta discuss with Hubby. We'll need to book a hotel for the night to come in to the city.

·

Sounds like you're in for Steemy night, either way :-P

·

That'd be some dedication. But hey, a late valentine's day hotel stay is always a good plan

Definitely interested, will have to confirm next week!

·

Hopefully it fits into the schedule

Hi @ratticus. I can't say for sure whether I'll be there - I'm working till 4.10ish in Neutral Bay.. might you still be there if I come and is there a way I can contact you and let you know? Thanks for organising

·

I should still be there. I expect to be there until at least 6, but probably later if there are people about and things are going well.

Are you on discord? I can PM you my number over there. Happy for people to know it, just rather it not be 'that' easy to find by just anyone

·
·

I'm struggling a bit with discord. Totally new to me. Yes I'm on it but gettibg used to the terminology. I'm on a 'travellirs' channel. What are you on? x

·
·
·

I'm mostly on the PAL server in the #teamaustralia channel, but also on the South Pacific Server in pretty much any of the Australia chat rooms. Same username over there.

I’ll have to see if I can make it.
If you ever do it an evening during week days that would make it easier for me.

I live on the Central Coast but work in Artarmon near St Leonards.

·

I certainly contemplated a weeknight, but I also know many where that time after work is family time, or rest and recover time and socialising during the week isn't possible, so I went with what I thought was the most likely to be acceptable. That's not to say others won't suggest a weeknight and run one on a Tuesday or something. This is just getting the ball rolling, and I'm sure there'll be some talk about days and locations at the event too

·
·

Can't keep everyone happy can we lol. Just pick a date/time that suits most.

·
·
·

That's the plan for the future, but for now it's more a matter of just getting something happening at all!

·
·
·
·

I won’t be able to make it tomorrow.
Hope you guys will enjoy.

·

·

That happens. Hopefully the timing of the next one suits you better

I stole the image from somewhere at some stage too ;)

·

excellent work. I guess at this point it's a public domain image then

Good luck from Melbourne!

·

Oh no! I can’t make it Cos I’ve got a kiddy bday party to go plus my live chat is at 5pm .... I have been waiting for this for so long but wrong timing :(

·

Damn, that's a shame. Next time around (after I'm back from Adelaide, and their March meetup) I'll look at other more suitable times for people if they let me know their general availability. Then it's only one of things like kid's birthday parties that would get in the way :)

Damn, I cant make this one. I'll try for the next one.

·

Noted. and I've added you to my list of locals

Will try to come by
