I've been wondering how many of us work in the CBD or nearby. I thought it might be good way of catching up.

 

Cheers

John

Hi,

 

I am not in the CBD, the Office is in "The Shire" but I spend most of time all over NSW both Metro & Rural.

I do miss some of the attractions of having a CBD office ;) , so could easily be convinced to head into town, or Darling Harbour for a coffee.

 

Cheers

 

PB

Sounds like we have a few people around, which is great to see. I'll plot it up and see what's central to everyone. of course It will have to be a sunny day to ensure its worth Pete doing the trip.

Ha Ha, the only catch is will I be in Sydney, I have a LOT of travel in the next month or two.

If in Sydney I will be there.

Perhaps have it somewhere near a railway station, some of us retirees can probably lash out on our $2.50 'travel-anywhere' ticket. Gee, 'staying back for a few drinks', that bring back some memories

 

PS. Make sure it has good toilet facilities for us oldies!

Make sure you have an OPAL card! They phased out most paper tickets including the senior ones I believe.

 

I work near Alexandria, so can probably go to CBD events provided they aren't a lunch thing.

Good points. I was just thinking of a lunch time catch up, mainly because I pick the kids up from school. It's a rare night that I am able to go out during the week :

Of course, just because I can't make the after work events doesn't mean something can't be arranged without me. 

At least we know people are around and if you need a chat and advice its not too far.

 

Back to lunch time catch up - there isn't a real middle ground in terms of location, so it may depend on who can attend and the venue could alternate.

 

Gav the first suggestion is 1.1km away which might be a stretch for you. Sakuratei Japanese restaurant - Ground Floor, 202 Clarence St, its got awesome food and it has a garden out the back which may be easier to talk than inside.

 

If gti-z or Andy can't make it then the Pyrmont Bridge hotel could work. It really depends on how flexible people are etc.

 

cheers

I'm flexible mate, just depends on the date and if I have meetings around lunch time or not.

I can walk to Pyrmont Bridge Hotel if that suits better.  Think it only takes me 15 or 20 mins.

Not sure if this is an event still being considered, thought I would throw in a suggestion for after work.

Harts Pub Happy hour 4-6pm Mon- Fri short walk from Circular Quay station.

I believe everyone seemed keen if it was convenient. I've been preoccupied with other things to even think about organising it. Of course no issue with any one else organising a catch up(s)
