Calling all dads around Glen Iris, Melbourne.

Recommended Posts

Guest MartinandKaroline

I'm a builder from Hertfordshire with a six-month-old son and am looking for other dads to have a few beers and a game of pool with from time to time. Why should the mums have all the social life??

 

Most of the lads I work with are younger and I'm too old (37!!) to go out drinking all night with them, but not too old to be wearing slippers and drinking Horlicks...

 

If anyone wants to meet up or knows of any existing meet ups, please get in touch.

 

Cheers

Hi guys,

 

Chop would love to come out to play with you. He deserves a few nights out & if you do arrange something that involves the ladies I would love to come too.

 

Social life indeed, playgroup & baby music ain't quite hittin' the spot.

 

Chop is a brickie so I am sure you can exchange work experiences over a beer & a game of pool. We are in Donvale so not too far from you.

 

Hope to hear from you soon.

 

Cheers Jaq

Hello mate, sounds good, how about we all meet up late afternoon Saturday week, on the 16th?

 

Gareth, since you've been here longer than me can you recommend somewhere in between Glen Iris, Mulgrave and Donvale (Burwood?).

 

Jim, will you be around?

Velly, it's not the city but perhaps you can still make it.

 

I'll be wearing my SPURS shirt.

Hi,

 

burvale hotel is good for Chop, he is working on Saturday till about 3.30pm. Do you have a planned meeting time?

 

He will not be wearing a football shirt as he is more of a high octane level sport follower.

 

cheers Jaq

Hello mate,

 

I forgot my son's got a swimming lesson tomorrow at 3 so we can make it after 5.30 if you want, or postpone it to another time? I'm assuming no one else is interested in joining us as I haven't had any replies...?

Sounds like a plan.

 

Are you all planning a fair few beers? Not sure whether Chop will drive or if I drop him off & he is self propelled home by either the beer scooter or a taxi.

Hi guys,

I'll be arriving in Melbourne on the 29th May. My kids are Primary School age so please don't hold that against me.

We're staying out in Ferntree Gully which is a bit further out, but it doesn't look a million miles away from Glen Iris, or is it?

I'll be in touch once I get settled as I'll be choking for a beer or seven.

 

Alan

Hi,

 

I'm replying on behalf of Martin who's working this morning.

 

All sounds good. He'll try and get to the pub around 5.

 

Jaq I'll probably drop him off - you know what the police are like for doing random alcohol testing, it's probably not worth taking the risk.

 

Cheers

Hi Guys,

 

I hope you all had a good time last night. Chop has been suitable broken for most of the day (ha ha no sympathy):biglaugh:

 

I'm sure he would love to come out & play again next time, if they'll let him back into the Burvale that it!! By the sounds of things he was "politely asked to leave"

 

Jaq

 

p.s. I hope he behaved.
