Sun March 25 at 1:00 PM, Riverland
Princes Walk, Melbourne VIC 3000, Australia (Map & Directions)
This is a very special episode of Melbourne Metafilter Meetups. So much so that we're being given several weeks notice! Mark your calendars or forever be wringing your hands in agony at having missed this historic event. This is like the second biggest event since Jessamyn came to Melbourne & only 2 people showed up. What a bunch of fucking slackers.
The utterly awesome gomichild is visiting Melbourne in late March & I'm proposing a trip to Riverland to briefly share her awesome awesomeness with the rest of you.
The current plan is to bribe the Ro for the afternoon and give gomi an afternoon of civil adult interaction & boozingness. Gomi may be open to other meet ups while she is town for the week but she does have the insane toddler in tow, and I'm sure there is limit to Ro's bribability.

I cannot find the page listing gomichild's world tour schedule. When is she visiting SF? Also, where can I get a VIP pass?

Couldn't find anyone when I got there just before 1:30! Went for a walk up to Fed square where an incredible Balkan Brass band was playing and never came down. Balkan brass music trumps pretty much anything.
