Meet others for a leisurely brunch/lunch/dinner/whatever with the days newspapers.


Talk/discuss/debate current affairs... which is 'anything and everything' - both local and international... from politics to religion to economics to sociology to celebrity - whatever's getting your goat - once it's interesting, and you're actually in the habit of reading a newspaper/book/webnews, it's 'in'.

No particular viewpoint or knowledge is required, just an interest in what's going on in the world. Bring an open mind and a sense of humour. Any age... any political leaning... any religion... whatever...

NOTE: Please feel free to put your name on the waiting lists if a meetup event you'd like to attend is fully booked - there are always a couple of drop outs leading up to the event... and if there are quite a few on the lists I'll be able to review how I work this thing during the next year (maybe make it bi-monthly, choose different venues to allow for more attendees in a different format, repeat the events that had most interest etc.)

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
