Dumplings and a Movie

Hi! After speaking to a few of you at the event on Tuesday, we thought it would be a great idea to organise dinner and a movie for a cheap Tuesday!

I've heard really good things about Din Tai Fung's dumplings, but I've never been (perhaps I'm the only one). I thought it would be a great place to start!

Based on what I've read of the place, bookings need to be made. If you'd like to come with us, you'll have to let us know as early as possible so we can book.

As for the movie - Event on George doesn't release their movie times this far in advance. I'd love to hear suggestions on what you'd like to see, though :)

Lucy, I'm not sure how these things work or if I need to do anything special to organise an event like this - are you able to let me know if there's anything I've missed?

Thanks everyone, hope to see you there!

    Great place for dinner, there were some nice vegan options. Even though the place was busy and there were many of us, there weren't any real problems with getting in and eating before the movies started. Plenty of time :)

    The people I met were very nice but I certainly didn't get around to meeting even half the group. Perhaps for a similar event there should be a restriction on numbers? The numbers were good to make sure everyone had a movie partner though, so I'm not sure, lol.

    'This Is 40' was enjoyable, but unlike 'Knocked Up' not one I'd see again.

    Thanks to Lucy and Stephanie for organising and leading the group :)
    Hope to meet a lot more of you next time!

    PLEASE READ THE WHOLE THING BEFORE COMMENTING

    Just for clarification, we are meeting at 7PM at the dumpling place for dinner. This has already been booked for 25 people. We need everyone to confirm their RSVP so that we can book the right amount of tables.

    After dinner we will head over to the cinema. We will all want to see different movies, so we will split up into different groups at this point. We have the choice of:

    1. Django Unchained @ 9:20PM
    2. Lincoln @ 9:30PM
    3. Movie 43 @ 9:40PM
    4. Silver Linings Playbook @ 9:20PM
    5. This is 40 @ 9:15PM
    6. Zero Dark 30 @ 9:30PM
    7. Hansel & Gretel @ 9:15PM

    I would like everyone to firstly, confirm their place at dinner and secondly, to let me know what movie you want to see.

    DO NOT COMMENT ON THIS POST IF YOU ARE NOT RSVPing. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO TALK ABOUT THE MOVIES, PLEASE MAKE A NEW POST

    I will give you an example as the first comment of what I would like everyone to do.

    Thanks!
    Lucy

    How much for movie ticket~!!

    February 11, 2013

    • Melinda

      Depends which movie you go to. Check Event cinemas webpage. SLP is $11.50 and This Is 40 is $10, but I believe they are the cheaper ones, not exactly sure about the others.

    I'm interested.. do you know if they cater for vegans at all?

    1 · February 7, 2013

    • Melinda

      Hmm.... on the menu it has a couple of things that look like they could be vegan: Vegetarian dumplings, Green Beans, Vegi Delight.. but then I called and asked if they catered for vegans and they said 'no'. Oh well, might just wing it anyway! I'll just make sure to eat beforehand and whatever is there for me is extra :)

    I usually like to plan things before the day comes so I check out the menu. To see how much it costs and which ones looks good. Any way here the link to their menu.http://www.urbanspoon.com/cities/70-sydney/restaurants/750693-din-tai-fung/menu
