As amongst the more experienced Melbourne local drinkers I would like to suggest we plan drinks on Friday.
Last years Friday drinks in Hobart were good fun, and well, we can’t have Melbourne being outdone.
Unlike Hobart Friday nights here are busy, so where is important.
With my cold at present, last thing I’m thinking of is drinking anything besides a hot toddy So probably best if we kick around some ideas of where.
I have a work function that night, so I won’t be able to make it.
I think locals would have the best ideas. I usually end up in the nearest pub or a hipster bar in Fitzroy (like the Black Cat assuming it still exists).
I was thinking near the Congress venue for ease of navigation for everyone.
We had a beer at the Mill House on Flinders Lane last night. Was probably a good venue for Pirates in terms of being able to chat, but it was expensive with beers being $9 each. If someone knows somewhere nearby that is cheaper it may be a better option, but the Mill House was alright.
Was that for pints? If so, that’s cheap in Melbourne.
I was going to say Mill House is prob a good bet.
Sorry can’t make it. Will be in Europe for… I don’t know how long. Which reminds me, in case i forget, don’t ever nominate me to run for parliament: I’m a dual citizen and likely to stay that way
Sorry I won’t be there. Sad. Meatspace is hectic.
However, I’ve got the weekend off and I’ve got my online ticket. #Yarr
Laura I wanted to catch up with you re the Liquid Democracy translation you were doing. How is progress?
On topic: I’ll be kicking around Melbourne from lunchtime. Most of you have my Twitter if anyone wants to meet up.
See you all at the Mill House at 8:30.
