What we're about

We are a fun group of young professional American friends of friends mostly between the ages of 25-35ish who have been working and living here around 1-4 years. Most of us are expats on working here on 457 visas while some of us have PR or are on a working holiday.

We organize events every few weeks from 50-2000 people. Friend us on facebook to get all the updates https://www.facebook.com/sydneyexpat.americ... (https://www.facebook.com/sydneyexpat.americans)

Most of our events are aimed at young professionals, but we've also got an "American Families in Sydney" group on facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/15027003849... (https://www.facebook.com/groups/150270038495344/)

We like to get together and have a good time celebrating all things American and or anything that can be used as an excuse to party.

It is always fun meeting others who share something in common that you can talk with about things like college basketball or American politics and they actually understand.

American Idol Karaoke
Needs a date and time

Needs a location

American Idol Karaoke Belt out your favorite American hits. Asian style, so we'll get a private karaoke room that'll fit 25 or so people and then pick songs and pass the mic's around the room. We'll go for cheap drinks close by to loosen up before from 8:30-10:30pm and then we'll hit karaoke from about 10:45pm until late. There are a bunch of places right around the George/Liverpool/Pitt street area in the city. We just need to figure out which one is the best and pick a date.
