Australia Day: Free happy hour drinks, meat pies and more!

  • Jan 26, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

*UPDATE*  due to the high number of people wanting to attend we are going to open the meetup event to everyone however we will only be catering for the first 100 people that RSVP'd and will issue two drink vouchers upon arrival to those 100 people on the list.


We would like to invite our members to celebrate Australia Day right here in New York with free drinks, pies, bakery treats and a best dressed prize on Saturday 26th January.

The free drinks will run for one hour from 7:30pm.  This happy hour is sponsored by SMATS.  

SMATS Group has been helping Australian Expats and International Property investors since 1995.  We can assist in helping you understand the many tax advantages available to property investors that can ensure a very low tax environment and boost after tax returns.  We can also assist you in arranging the best finance options for your property purchase through our extensive lender network including all of Australia's main banks.  For more information please contact Martin Cranitch on[masked] or email [masked] A representative from SMATS will also be available on the night to answer any questions you may have.


If free drinks weren’t already enough to get you there we have secured FREE pies for everyone care of Pie Face New York!  You can show them our appreciation by sending a thank you tweet for the meetup pies to @PieFaceUSA or via

After the pies we will lull ourselves into a self induced sugar coma with Australian baked goods provided by Waltzing Matilda's - an online bakery in NY that delivers traditional Australian pastries that are hard to find in the USA such as Pavlovas, Lamingtons and Caramel Slices.  To get your Aussie bakery fix visit:

The dress code is “think Australian”.  To motivate people to dress the part we are offering a dinner for two (up to $100) for the best dressed care of Mercedes at Outback Steakhouse in Chelsea 6th Ave.  Outback Steakhouse: the flavors that our mates crave. (*flavours hehe)

7:30pm – 9pm will be strictly for meetup members only.  If you would like to invite friends everyone is welcome after 9pm.

    Hi Liz,

    I'm going to open the meetup to everyone and issue drink vouchers to the first 100 people that RSVP'd. So yes you can come but wont be able to get the free drinks. In any case leave your name on the wait list because if people cancel it will automatically update.

      So those of us on the waitlist can now turn up at 7pm? I'm not interested in the free drinks - just hoping to be in the room.

      Yes that's fine Ryan. The event starts at 7:30pm. We'll be giving out drink vouchers and possibly sectioning off an area to those on the RSVP list but everyone is welcome now to come and buy their own drinks. It's great that so many people want to come.

    Hi Caroline,

    Sorry to be a pain. I'm on the waitlist, as are a couple of my girlfriends. Does that mean we shouldn't come down until after 9:00pm? Since we 're not technically on the rsvp list. Or shall we try our chances in case some of the RSVP'ers don't turn up.

    Many thanks for organising this! It'll be my first MeetUp! Yey! Liz
