Early evening drinks get together in Residence, Friday 21st September '12.

  • Sep 21, 2012 · 6:30 PM
  • Residence Private Members Club

And... we're back!

New meetup: evening drinks in The Behan Lodge - the enclosed and heated upstairs area of the Residence Private Members Club garden.

 

Kickoff at 6:30pm - it's the usual casual no rules format, just a gorgeous venue and a mix of people who have an (unhealthy?) interest in current affairs . Drink or don't drink, eat or don't eat - there is a full bar and a light bites menu. Go to http://www.residence.ie/ to checkout the venue.

 

I imagine the following topics will be part of the mix (but note, these are just conversational suggestions - there are no 'speakers', you just grab a chair and chat...):

  • How are our new government doing so far?
  • Are the previous and proposed cuts fair and 'smart'?
  • Are our media serving us well?
  • Do the EU have a credible plan?
  • The effects of the recession
  • The US election
  • Aaaannndd, whatever is getting your goat.

 

Bits and bobs:

  1. There is no charge to attend this event (but of course you'll pay for whatever you drink/eat).
  2. You must have booked here and be on the guest list to attend.
  3. If the event is full, put yourself on the waiting list as I can extend the numbers and/or there are always drop-outs near the date.
  4. If you book a place and find you cannot attend, or will be late, please let me know as soon as possible.
  5. Members can bring up to one guest. If you have more than one there's a simple solution, get them to sign up as a member.
  6. Respect your fellow members, please put the date as a reminder that will alert you a few days before in your phone calendar, so that you don't just forget and leave an empty seat that somebody else could have taken.
  7. Have an interest in current affairs.
  8. You don't have to be an 'expert' on anything, just someone who reads a newspaper fairly regularly and tries to follow what's going on in Ireland / the world.

I think that's everything. See you there!

    yeah great meet up Ver. You definitely need to be involved in US election meet up. Anyone who gets that number of people together on Friday night, with so many other events on in Dublin (and keep them there) has real people skills...

      I expect to arrive at 6:30pm and leave around 8pm so if that helps allow someone on the waiting list to attend.

    I *might* be home for this but not sure yet. So I won't RSVP until I am sure... Maybe you could squeeze me in later? :-)
