Sat February 8 at 6:00 PM, The Rook
56-58 York Street, Sydney NSW 2000, Australia (Map & Directions)
Second leg of my trip, I am going to be in Sydney starting on the 7th and have no current plans setup to do anything over the weekend. Would either a drinkup or an afternoon meetup on the 8th be of interest to anyone? Canceled unless other folks show up.

I'd be more available on the but I'm not special. I defer to the greater community need.

Oh I would love to, but now we have a 1 month old in addition to the 2 year old, I cannot in good conscience leave my poor partner for the time it will take to trek in and back from the burbs. Darn it, would be nice to have met you!

Pity, I am in Brisbane for a couple of weeks :-(

I'm in Brisbane, been a while since I went to a meet up here (meta filter 10th anniversary- where we were all far too excited to remember to send tab to mathowie)

I too am away I'm afraid (funnily enough visiting family in Brisbane). I would like to make a correction though b33j, mathowie did in fact pick up the tab.

I'm staying in the CBD area, have no plans for that Saturday, and am willing to take transit to most places.

I meant to set this up - sorry mrzarquon, time got away from me.

I'm keen, I can do Saturday or Sunday. There are plenty of nice places to go in the CBD - but given the gorgeous weather perhaps something in the Rocks to get the lovely harbour view?

The Lord Nelson is a lovely old school pub, with decent food, and excellent micro-brewed beers. The Glenmore has a nice roof garden with a spectacular view. We wen their for a meetup last year though.

Many of the cool bars in the CBD proper are underground. There are a couple that might be good for an afternoon - perhaps The Rook, a somewhat hidden rooftop bar.

Plenty of options in Surry Hills or similar.

IRL n00b here.

Yeah I could be around for this.

Freeish Saturday and Sunday, unless it's super sunny, and the stars align, and my friends are not working, in which case I'll probably go to the beach.

The Rook looks pretty awesome. I would be up for an afternoon meetup there.

Yeah, it's pretty nice - haven't tried the lobster rolls there but they look good.

Sorry, but I'm out now. It appears my father is taking his last breaths 1000 kilometres away and I fully expect to be a mess by the weekend.

Please have fun and accept my distracted apologies. Although in a few weeks I will be needing drunken debauchery.

My thoughts and sympathies are with you Taff. XO.

Oh, taff. That's awful.

I'm also away, so can't make it. Sorry to hear about your dad taff.

I'm so sorry taff.

I'm to put up a time for saturday at the Rook, just in case other folks are interested in dropping in.

Turns out that I've only got class until 4:00pm, so I could conceivably make this, but is it still happening mrzarquon? It looks like the Sydney crowd is being a bit reticent...
posted by His thoughts were red thoughts at 9:27 PM on February 6, 2014

Im still here in town, so if folks want to meet up I'm game.
posted by mrzarquon at 1:02 PM on February 7, 2014

Actually, I have a rather nasty headache today, so I'm out for tonight. Perhaps a resched?
posted by His thoughts were red thoughts at 5:17 PM on February 7, 2014

No worries, I'm here until next Saturday afternoon.
