The Gov - Live Music / Drinks/ Gourmet Pizza

Friday night about 7PM....

Visit the Front Bar of the Governor Hindmarsh Hotel (opposite the Entertainment Centre)... convenient to the tram stop... enjoy a drink and pizza (or other choices from the menu)... Live music.... best are the folky type bands i.e. banjo, fiddles, mandolin etc....

Stick around for the Irish Music jam: •Irish Folk Session Squeezeboxes, fiddles and tin whistles provide the soundtrack for the Friday Saloon Bar follies. Traditional Irish music Session in the Saloon Bar from 10:30pm

A great pub... no pokies... no TV's... no Keno.... no carpets... just a traditional original pub! (PS Order food before 8:30PM)

    November 14, 2013

  • Bill

    Marty, might be an idea to let the Gov know 50+ of us are invading them Friday, they can review staffing if they feel the need. And Carole, you have sealed the deal, Royal Stewart party kilt it is.

    November 14, 2013

    • Bill

      Done. They appreciated the heads up & will ensure they have staff numbers to cope.

    Thanks heaps Bill Was at the hospital all day and couldn’t do anything much from there .. Was going to give the Gov a heads up later today once more RSVPs confirmation might have come about .. If you’ve done it already that’s brilliant - Cheers Bill Love ya work :o) (takes a load off from this end).. This event has had RSVP YES's of numbers nearing and over 70 yet at last minute numbers have tended to drop (:o( ..) However its in the venues interest and the good name of Meetup to make it known that there will be more than the usual attending the pub on the night .. Even if numbers drop (or increase) all in all should be a wonderful mix of fabulous people attending which will make for a great night ..

    Hello all .. Lovely to see sooooo many new and not so new faces RSVPing for this event .. Its always been a great night and a really lovely way to catchup .. Looking forward to seeing you all there :o) Just a little bitty FYI .. RE: Spotting out of the crowd...
    I have once again changed my hair yesterday - yep again ..
    Its short!! (OMG!!!!! :-O ..) (as in shorter than the other short haired pic on here) But its still dark (almost black as it has been before)
    Will try to up load a new/current pic so iam easier to spot out of the crowd being only 5ft nothing can make it difficult some times

    Looking forward to a great night -:o) (its been a while so i might even be able to let my "hair down" just a tad .. lol..
    Keep an eye on this site for any changes during the evening (ie: if the some group members move on from the Gov or if we are too many and spill out into the other bar ect ect) PS: please be remined that if you would like to order food please place an order before 830

    I am looking forward to this- went to the Gov a few months ago to watch rockabilly and it was going off! As long as I can successfully negotiate a bus and tram to the Gov. I will be there. :) I hope others are planning to have a bite to eat? I get too nervous to eat before I leave home. Cheers Karen.
