Friday night drinks

Let's meet at the bar in the Botanical Hotel in South Yarra for the first event of the new meet up group. This is a great venue in a good location with good public transport and plenty of parking.

Please pass on the invitation to all your single educated and professional friends over 45 who may not be aware of meet up group and who would like to meet new people.

This is a classy venue so please dress appropriately.

Everyone to pay for their own drinks. Please bring $10 with you for finger food and a name tag.  

I will be wearing an orange dress. 

The bar is on the right hand side of the Botanical, up a few stairs.

We will have an area sectioned off near the bar called Fireside (its near the fireplace). The staff have been informed of our group and will know where we are located. So if you are having trouble finding us, just ask one of the staff members.

Please contact me if you have any questions or require any further information.

Look forward to meeting you.

Yvonne

    Sorry I didn't get there. First I was late, then couldn't find the place, then couldn't find a park and last but not least somehow got caught up in traffic in Punt Rd!!!!!!!!!!! Oh what a night! At 8.45 decided to go and have drinks with old friends instead of meeting new ones! Great to hear it was a good night Hopefully I will get to the next one

    • Tracey H.

      Did you not receive an email form Yvonne. We will be in an area called the Fireside - it is near the fireplace. There will be a MeetUp sign on the table and the staff know we are meeting there and can direct you. We will probably be the largest, most fun group - easy to spot....lol

      January 31, 2014

    Hi Yvonne, will a large group have trouble fitting/getting into the Bot? There will be an attrition rate but you'll still have quite a few.

    A couple of easy practices that make these types of Meetup work best is to have something RED on the Table or corner where we meet (so people can find us), & for everyone to stand rather than sit, so as to encourage circulation. Work best in bar areas where there are those higher tables and / or stools that discourage people from sitting down & "hiding out" at longish tables where you can't easily meet new people! And pls don't enforce any of those boring rules about two non turn-ups & your out etc. The strength of the younger Happy Hour Commandos that meets on Fridays around city bars is a testament to how well these groups can work if they are approached in the right way.

      Mmmmm. Maybe we should add dominance as one topic for discussion!

      January 19, 2014

    • Tracey H.

      Stuart, I have run events and totally concur with what you are suggesting. Now, I am sure I had a cane somewhere around here.....
