What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
Meet us for Saturday afternoon/night social drinks at the Story Bridge Hotel! We will be in the THE 'OUTBACK BAR.' If you can't find the bar...just ask at the other bar it is. We will have some balloons/ sign on the tables and they might hard to spot when there is a big crowd..... so if you are new and don't know anyone it is best to come sooner rather than later....WE ARE USUALLY NEAR THE RED PHONE BOX.... This meet up goes from 4 until[masked]. Some people stay on after that time or move to another bar.....what people do after the meetup finishing time is up to them... PARKING: There is usually heaps of parking in the side streets near the hotel. There is also a car park under the bridge (it is in 'Wharf Street').....no one has had trouble finding a parking spot yet! Everyone is very friendly because we are a social group and you will feel very welcome if you are new and glad that you have attended. ALSO...the rsvp's automatically shut off when events start...you can just 'turn up' if you want to come at the last minute! 😊 PLEASE DO NOT UPLOAD PHOTOS OF EVENTS as we prefer it if only our hosts do that... WE HOPE THAT YOU CAN MAKE IT!
Join our coffee/breakfast BOOKCLUB at 'THE HEDGE' coffee shop at Salisbury. 'THE HEDGE' is a really great place - excellent food at a very reasonable price with tons of parking on a quiet, leafy street. It has a relaxed, comfortable feel about it. We have our meet up in the cute little court yard on the side. The staff are very friendly and helpful. DIRECTIONS- If you can find the road that the QE2 hospital is on go there then find 'Orange Grove Road' then turn off INTO Lillian Ave (where Aldi is)....it is at the very end of Lillian Ave...(the Salisbury train station end.) It is what used to be a residental house on the corner..opposite a red post box. It is on the corner of Lillian Ave. and Kellett Street...…. **Friendly reminder...please keep your RSVP updated as the table booking is made based on RSVP YES numbers......hope to see you there....Rhonda**
Come along for a social skate and meet some new people while doing something fun and healthy. It is a great place for beginners! $20 covers entry and skate hire. The session goes from 11 am to 3 pm. ICEWORLD Boondall is on Sandgate Road near the boatyard. I will be INSIDE on the ice and wearing a black hoodie that says - 'MEETUP' so come and find me or text me on -[masked] and I will introduce you to the gang. Please wear warm clothes, THICK SOCKS OR EVEN WEAR TWO PAIRS is a good idea!!! See you there! Matthew p.s. leave a comment or question below if you like!
*** This walk is meant to be a slow social walk😊😊😊😆 Meet for a scenic walk from Kangaroo Point (at the entrance of the Holman Ferry Terminal - near the Jazz Club) then up towards Southbank and then over the Goodwill Bridge then back around the back of Q.U.T. and then we always stop at the Jade Buddha. You can eat there or just have a drink. AFTER STOPPING AT THE JADE BUDDHA you have a choice- 1. CATCH the ferry back over to Kangaroo Point or 2. WALK back over the bridge to where we started. Dress for WALKING as we are all VERY casual. People can walk at whatever pace they want. SLOW WALKING IS ENCOURAGED.....!!!!!!!! it is friendly, relaxed and there is no pressure to power walk and FUR KIDS are always welcome too - but cannot come into the Jade Buddha of course. We stop at the beginning of the Goodwill bridge so that slower walkers can catch up and we all can stay together. There is usually 5 to 10 people attending each Sunday. If you can't find a spot to park...just go to 'Wharf Street'...which is the first left street after the 'Nite Owl' (which is opposite the hotel) and there are plenty of places to park there..................... http://photos4.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/1/2/2/2/600_3 WE DON'T WAIT FOR ANYONE (even if you have rsvp'd YES) - NOT EVEN THE ORGANISERS. YOU ARE BEST TO ARRIVE 10-15 EARLY IF YOU DON'T KNOW THE WAY TO GO AND IF YOU MISS US .... YOU CAN CATCH US BY GOING IN THE DIRECTION OF THE GOODWILL BRIDGE...... We meet EVERY SUNDAY - no matter what the weather is like- we catch the ferry over to the Jade Buddah and then back again even if it is raining!!! So you never have to worry if it is on or not! ALSO, THERE IS A .*** very fast paced walk ...... EVERY THURSDAY (at 5.30 - not 3.45) AND THE WALK IS FOLLOWED BY A SENSATIONAL DINNER AT THE STORY BRIDGE HOTEL. P.S. - PLEASE STAY ON THE WALKING PATH - NOT THE BIKE TRACK- it is painted on the ground and can be a bit confusing but once you get to the Q.U.T. side you don't have to worry about it. We hope to see you there!
