Tuesday Night Drinks and Culture / Language Exchange

The Shark Hotel

Hi Everyone, Let's get together on Tuesday to have some fun where socialising and mingling with people is the only purpose! Come with friends, colleagues, flat mates... the more the merrier. This is highly entertaining with an average of 100+ people every week. We also welcome members from Sydney Language Exchange, O Me! O Life!, Sydney Fun Indoor Outdoor Activities, Sydney Japanese Association, International Friends meetup and our friends from Couch Surfing. Keep in mind, this is not a dating event. There is plenty of other meetup groups catering for this very purpose. Please be respectful of others and understand that people are not here to find a partner. If someone is annoying you please come to talk to the organisers immediately. This meetup is free and a privilege, not a right. We, as organiser, are granted the responsibility of trying to keep this meet enjoyable. We have the right, and will exercise the power, to kick and ban any offenders without prior warning. If at any point during the meetup, you have a question, suggestion or need help with something, please come talk to me [Dominic] or one of my co-hosts. Usually at about 8:30, after this routine meetup, we are heading off to somewhere nearby having a late dinner. If you haven't had dinner yet, feel free to join us! Cheers Nicolas, Dominic [NOTE: this is NOT a DATING meetup and if you are found to be coming for the sole purpose of picking up a mate, you will be expelled and banned from the group.] *PS: The Shark Hotel is a really nice venue centrally located in the heart of the city, offers a selection of 4.50$ drinks and includes a pretty good Thai restaurant. This is NOT a BYO, it is not allowed to consume food or drinks from outside. **Valid ID required - driving licence, photo card or passport: This requirement is a New South Wales Alcohol Regulation Law that requires anyone inside this establishment to be over 18 years old and to have a valid ID, not expired and written in English, to prove it.
