What we'll do
This event is $ 2 to go to pay the meetup fees😆....please give to the host😆
DRINKS AND SOCIALIZING AT THE 'JADE BUDDHA'- (every month)
Come for drinks and socializing at the Jade. There is plenty of space to relax and meet new and familiar people. It has a great atmosphere and easy to get to if you catch the ferry and it has fantastic views of the river and bridge. There is a cool breeze coming off the river and the staff are very lovely too.
Everyone who attends gets ONE free drink per person too! You can only GET and USE the voucher between 6 & 7 o'clock...the bar will NOT give you a drink after 7 o'clock even if you have the voucher. THERE WILL BE A STAFF MEMBER STANDING AT THE BAR NEAR THE CIGARETTE MACHINE GIVING OUT THE VOUCHERS.....that person usually has a lighted band around their head...
.YOU CAN CHOOSE FROM:
. A HOUSE RED OR WHITE OR SPARKLING
. A GLASS OF TAP BEER OR A TOOHEY'S NEW OR A XXXX GOLD
. A NON- ALCOHOLIC DRINK!! - (but not mocktails)
ALSO, PLEASE NOTE THE DRESS CODE REQUIREMENTS-
MEN- A full buttoned, full collared shirt, well presented tidy pants or blue jeans with a belt, no cargo pants and good leather dress shoes, no beach attire and no shorts. They may NOT let you in unless you are dressed according to the code.
LADIES- The same as above and no singlets etc. Smart casual dress is the best choice.
Also, this venue will not let you enter if you have any hand or neck tattoos...
If you want to park in Eagle Street there is a few car parks to choose from....the 'Pig and Whistle' charge $10- $15 and next to the Jade the Wilson Parking is $18 or $10 at the Riverside which is right next to it.
WHERE- We are meeting downstairs NOT the 'Shadow Lounge' because it is easier to talk - in the inside area that is facing the bridge. If you walk straight in from the river entrance - (next to the Coffee Club) NOT the street entrance you should see us. We are down the little steps from the little bar INSIDE (facing the river) not the round bar that is outside on the verandah part......
Sometimes the bar and security person knows where we are too. Just walk up to someone and ask 'is this the meet up group?' then they can direct you to the host and just ask the host if you want to be introduced around.....it is not easy to come along to these things the first time if you are by yourself but we are all friendly and have all been new once too.
They start the 'HAPPY HOUR TIME' (5-6) so maybe you can come in a little early and get a few cheaper drinks then have your 'free drink.' So come for a few drinks and socialising at one of the best venues in Brisbane!
A FEW IMPORTANT THINGS
We always do our best to make NEW people feel welcome but it can be hard because there is a large number of people and it can be a bit noisy..so if you are new why not come to our NEWBIES night that is on every last Saturday of the month at the Stones Corner Hotel😆😆😆😆 there are more hosts at that event and it is easier to chat and meet more people!
# There is a veranda area nearby outside with beautiful views.
# You can still attend after the rsvp cut off time but we REALLY want people to rsvp so that we can tell the venue how many free drink vouchers to give us.
# We do not monitor the site during the night as we are busy hosting...
*The google map doesn't work all the time but you should find 'The Jade Buddha' in Eagle Street very easily....
* PLEASE do not upload photos of events onto the site as we prefer that only our hosts do that...thank you for understanding...
The hosts will be hosting between 6 and 9.30
See you there for a totally awesome night! from your host Andrew!
p.s. the google map can be a bit misleading ....just find Eagle Street and it will be easy to find
