    Sounds like a good excuse for a trip to Melbourne.

    Put me down as a tentative yes.

    Just another note on this potential party, i've been to all three meetups and its been great to have sponsors but I and i am sure many others don't want to disrespect thier generosity so far. So bring your wallet.

    Consider another venue, please
    Perhaps ask for suggestions from people familiar with the city

    We have had 2 or 3 functions at

    http://www.thebullandbear.com.au/index-1.html piano bar in FlinderLane

    It is a working class pub, and I got such a thrill when the bat attendant told Erhan that "No , we don't stock mineral water."
    David Lye flew down from Sydney for a function there and it just re-inforced his Sydneysider opinion that Melbourne sucks.
    So I vote to have xmas function at the bull and bear
    What date and time?

    its got beer so i'm fine with it, i called the last thursday in november because i think the AUDA meets then? ned to confirm, so i thought that date was a win win, as for time it would be 5pm onwards but for those who can get there earlier i will be.

    thanks for pushing this along Honan

    Don't worry about that date - auDA Panel will be long finished. So choose any date you want; and any location.

    I'm not sure if I'll be there though, but I'll try.

    i dropped into the bull yesterday, brian says hello honan, looks good and very flexible on the number of people coming, i had him pencil us in for thursday 29/11/12, he just asked that we firm the date as soon as possible because it is xmas ! , but said thursday is cool but a friday or saturday would not be possible.

    so we need to get some idea of who can come.

    great idea for a function but bull and bear isn't the best venue :)

    Yes as Honan recounts they weren't able to help me, I think they only serve VB and Carlton....

    Melbourne has heaps of cool bars and places to go

    ok, well "time is on our side" so lets start bringing in some suggestions for bars?

    chris and i were at madam brussels last night and although it was a good night "I DO NOT WANT TO GO BACK" , sorry but $9 for a 330ml bullshit beer is just not me, i just can't see value.... od help us if we asked them to cater !!!, the staff were crap, ( sorry chris should have mentioned this today but my iphone hassles took me off track ) if i'm going to pay good money then i want GREAT service.

    i'm not a yuppie i'm a "bloke".

    although i live in melbourne (burbs) i'm not familiar with going out so can someone STEP UP and create some suggestions please.
