Dinner & then Vivid Festival Walk / Drink

Afternoon,

***event details now updated***

Everyone excited?

After some thought I've changed the starting venue to the Metropolitan Hotel. It is not as flash as the Stich Bar BUT it meant that I was able to book a space at no cost... for the opening night of Vivid. So in my books that equals a win!

Website for Vivid:

http://www.vividsydney.com/

 

THE PLAN

7:30 Meet at the Metropolitan Hotel for a drink and and bite to eat.

Table is booked under 'Marnie' on the middle floor.

8:30 (ish) begin a nice big Walk & possible Ferry around vivid, through Circular Quay, and then ending up at the Opera House. Sights...

A GREAT IDEA to get around - if everyone is willing to purchase $10 Ferry Ticket, then NSW Transport has a couple of really good Walk & Boat Ideas...

END OF THE NIGHT...

10:00 Catch a Train or Ferry to Darling Harbour and Find a nice bar to sit at and watch any fireworks.

10:30 Night end, or if anyone has the party bug you may stick around.

***note that this will be the planned end of the evening. Won't have any definite things set in place after 10.30PM.

    Hey! I'll be running late. Major traffic on the bus home and still not home yet. Is there an area at the metropolitan hotel where we are all meeting -- how will I know where the group is?

    May 23, 2014

    • Marnie W.

      Hey, no worries. See above comment

      May 23, 2014

      I just got home :( Commute horrendous. I'm so sorry to do this, but I have to cancel. I hope to see you all at the next group meetup!

    Hey guys, running a little late, see you all soon :)

    Hey everyone. So I'm ridiculously early. How to find the booking: Metropolitan hotel cnr of George & Bridge streets above a Maccas. Go up 2 levels. There is 1 bar in the corner. Behind the bar, there is a separate section (which is kinda of a good accident with the booking :) ). Has a big table. Perfect for a meetup!

    Hi Everyone. Hope you are well! A couple of things ... 1) can you let me know if you are willing to pay $10 for a hop on/hop off Ferry? 2) Please make sure you are honest with your RSVP (there are people on the waitlist). THANKS :-)

      I've got a MyMulti 2, so think I'm already good to go.

      May 23, 2014

    • Marnie W.

      Might want to double check - cos it is a $10 all night special service sort of thing...

      May 23, 2014

  • Marnie W.

    There is the possibility I'll be a little late this evening. This is because I'm on call this weekend (work). Shouldn't be a problem but I'll let you know otherwise :)

    FERRY DETAILS: If you wish, you can buy your tickets online. I'd suggest this to avoid the crowds (but you can buy there). This is a much better site dedicated to the ferry: http://www.captaincook.com.au/sydney-harbour-cruises/whats-on-in-sydney/vivid-festival/vivid-sydney-ferry/?date=23/05/2014&adults=1&children=0

    May 22, 2014

    • Marnie W.

      Hi Ryan - we'll be at the pub until sometime after 8.20. Might be best to text me when you are on the way.

      May 23, 2014

    May 5, 2014

  • Marnie W.

    Hello hello.... Is everyone OK with the Friday? I'd be happy to do the Saturday or the Sunday instead - and it might be less crowded in the City. Please let me know your thoughts :)
