Australia Day

  • Jan 26, 2013 · 12:00 PM

Maaaaaaate, time for Australia Day yet again.

225 years ago, the first fleet were nice enough to land in Sydney Cove on the right date for us to properly celebrate Australia Day on a Saturday in 2013. I'm certain they did that just to spite the Mayans.

We'll be meeting at Momo's, which is walking distance from the San Francisco CalTrain, right near the ball park.

Hope to see you there.

Lee

P.S. You'll find me easily because I'll be wearing this

      The only problem is ... I'm a seppo so you can pick on my accent as well. I lived in Noosa for twelve years and came back to The States, very reluctantly, in November. I'm sooo missing my beach.

    Is there street parking there, or a nearby garage?

    January 23, 2013

    • Peter N.

      It's right by the ball park, so there's lots of parking (see Google maps), but it's pricey. Recommend you use Bart + Muni to get there.

      January 23, 2013

  • Ben d.

    Looking forward to styling up the mullet and wearing my finest flannelette shirt. Is there going to be coopers there? If not, is there a park nearby!?

    I'm not an Aussie, but I did just move to SF after two years in NZ so can I be an honorary Kiwi? Either way, I'll be there with bells on. (And I'll promise not to talk about rugby.)

  • Doug

    Anyone want to carpool, or share a BART/Caltrain ride from Palo Alto? Not cheap... Might as well use the travel time to make some new friends.

    I've confirmed with the venue, because they are a restaurant as well as a bar, children are welcome but must be supervised.

    Are limeys welcome??

    January 9, 2013

    • Mal

      It's actually Pommies for an Aussie Meetup. Limey's only if the Yanks organize it.

      January 9, 2013

    • Mal

      I hit enter too early, I meant to say of course. I'm one too.

      January 9, 2013

  • Jeff W.

    Are South Africans welcome? :)

    January 4, 2013

    • Lee

      Of course. As are Kiwis. They just aren't allowed to mention rugby.
