Any takers? [more inside]

PoMo MeFi

Heya cobbers. We were considering doing a Pokemon meetup and catching of monsters. Lollusc is late to the party and banished to Canberra for a few days so we must soothe her pain upon return. And for the love of dogonthemoon, someone has to help me take down msfish. ( blue team is bad, m'kay.) Open to date , time and venue suggestions although Usyd isn't bad and may be centrally accessible. Can be day with kiddoes or night with boozoes. (Fridays are out as it's often Chaiday Night at my place. To which MeFites have a standing invitation. ) We can all set lures in close proximity and enjoy the sprinkle of soft falling pink bits..

Return trip to Sydney

I'll be landing in Sydney on the morning of Sunday April 24th, and was wondering if folks would be up for drinks / food / keeping me awake until 10pm to fight off jetlag.

I'm staying near Wynyard station and I've been following the BS around the lock out laws, so really have no idea what would be a place worth meeting up at.

Sydney City to Surf 2015

Is anyone else running in the City to Surf this year? I don't know if I'm proposing a meet-up or just a general mutual online support thingo, but I thought it would be nice to compile a list of who's doing it. And maybe we could meet up briefly at the start to wish each other well, or even do a training run together a week or two before if we aren't all vastly different levels. [more inside]

Bar Studies 101, Melbourne Fringe Festival

Professional science communicator, Mefite lurker and mate of mine Owen is doing a show at the Fringe Festival this year: science demonstrations you can do with alcohol and bar equipment. I went on opening night and it was great fun. I want to go again to see how the show is shaping up over the course of the festival and with Mefites' love of bars, drinking and science thought I'd make it an event in case folk were interested. I'm proposing Tuesday because it's tight ass Tuesday, but it's running most nights of the week. If you're keen but can't make that night, I'm pretty flexible. Official blurb under the fold.
