VIP's for the night @Spice Market! complimentary food & Happy Hour Drinks

Hey Commandos...these regular events are spicey! This is our BIGGEST monthly event with over 200 Commandos regularly reporting for duty! Such dedication and endurance! Some of you deserve medals! We are heading to the VIP section of the Spice Market where we will be treated in the manner that we have become accustomed to! Great Happy Hour with drink specials[masked] $5 beer wine and spirits and delicious complimentary food platters! Then continue the party with brilliant company, and fun to be had! To top it off... A DJ pumping out all the great dance tracks.make sure you mention you are with Happy Hour Commandos Meetup to gain special access to VIP area.

The lavish Spice Market takes its inspiration from the ancient Spice Route travelled by traders of old, and has been exquisitely furnished to reflect this famous journey from Asia Minor through to the Far East. Honoring the Melbourne tradition of laneways and discovery, Spice Market is entered from Beaney Lane, off Russell Street, adjacent to the Grand Hyatt Melbourne.

Upon entering the subterranean world of Spice Market, you are transported to a more exotic time and place. Owners, Dean Lucas and Robert & Victor Zagame, have travelled the world collecting antiques, unique furniture and objects of art, combing them with luxe fabrics, an abundance of colour, handcrafted ceramic and glass mosaics, rich in every detail.

Dress Code: Gentlemen are required to wear a collared shirt & leather dress shoes.
Polo shirts, t-shirts, shorts, sneakers are not permitted.
Dark denim is acceptable, provided denim is not torn or faded.

      I googled the Trust and looks gorgeous. I will definately go. Not sure if I can pull myself away from Liquorland Express, Cat Cafe, Shirazz bar which are all on the way from work to Trust. Best I jump on a tram and just get there!
