I'm booked for the next couple of weekends, but after that I'd be in.

That sounds nice.

I work Saturdays & Sunday brunch is kind of sacred.
I'm open to suggestions though.

I will be in Melbourne on 9-10th Feb, and may be able to attend a Sunday brunch.

thanks everyone...would a meetup during the week be more convenient? I'm really a daytime kind of person, so evenings are out

so at this stage ...sunday brunch in a few weeks ? unless a mid week meetup is possible....

I'd be interested in a Sunday brunch in a few weeks as well.

I'm in! I sometimes work on weekends but can try to arrange something if I have notice.

I can do Sunday Brunch with a few weeks notice. Keep me posted!

how about sunday feb 10 at say....errr 10 or 11?

As for where, Federation Square is central but is it a bit too pricey? The thing is if its balmy we could sit outside under umbrellas or something and if its hot we could be inside with airconditioning. I don't really know the places at Fed Square: Fed Square restaurants etc

there are a few reviews of coffee places from the Age that caught my eye:
Hardware Societe
Hardware Societe

or Kinfolk
Kinfolk review

But I haven't been to any of these places....I might do a little sleuthing beforehand.
anyone have any other suggestions?

Gallery Kitchen at National Gallery of Victoria

I can most likely make Sunday brunch as well.

I quite like this place, so good choice! The "Radiance" exhibition that is currently showing at NGV is also excellent for those who haven't seen it and like neo-impressionist painting.

oh thats lucky! I like the Gallery, all that open space and if the weather is hot it won't be a hassle walking around
posted by sparkle55 at 12:45 AM on January 24, 2013

I can't make it down that weekend now, so regretfully I will be a nonstarter.

Have fun everybody!

The above map and location are both incorrect by the way. St Kilda Road isn't all in St Kilda.

Sometimes I doubt your commitment, Sparkle55.

Oh, and in case anyone doesn't recognise it, that was an utterly hilarious Donnie Darko reference & not meant to be remotely mean or snarky.

We should totally schedule another meetup. I've put one up for rugby, but we should do a general one - after work drinks or a sunday session or something. While the weather is still decent!

Unless everyone wants to come along to the rugby ...
posted by mosessis at 3:42 PM on February 11, 2013

Not up for the rugby, but totally up for a Sunday afternoon or an evening that I'm not working til 8.30pm.
