Jo (Aussie), Jon (Pom on a 100 visa), Satch (the gorgeous viscous labrador) have now been joined by Siena Rose.

Does anyone have a spare instruction manual for a baby girl?

OK people .... a date for the diary ..... Friday 14th Oct, meet up in the city.

 

Skyline bar at Crown, it isn't the most fantastic but it's quiet so good for gassing, and plenty of other bars in the place to move onto.

 

Will be the day after my b'day so a good excuse to have a few cheeky sherbets :)

 

7.30 pm onwards, look forward to seeing you there

Hey guys!

 

I'm new to the forum (and to Melbourne) so was wondering if this night out is for anyone wanting to meet folk in a similar boat, i.e. new to the city and looking to make friends?

 

Would love to join you all if it's an open invite.

 

Cheers!

Evening All,

 

The idea of the meet up is to meet new people and make some friends, so all welcome.

 

Some of us that will be there have been here a few months / years and some will be completely new.

 

Skyline bar is in Crown Casino on Southbank (5 mins walk from Flinders). Best to ask someone when you get there as it is a pretty big place and the bar is hard to find.

 

Looking forward to seeing you all there from 7.30 X

Hi guys,

 

I just called the Crown Casino cos I couldn't find the Skyline bar on their website and the woman I spoke to had never heard of it!

 

Does it go by another name at all?

 

Thanks

Hi Keezer,

 

They are such a nightmare (trust me i work at Crown) :rolleyes:

OK to get to the bar, you can go ways:

 

First option - head into the gaming floor, to Sports bar (well known). Behind sports bar there are stairs up to the 1st floor gaming area. Head up here, then at the top walk diagonally right and you will see Skyline Bar.

 

If you get stuck there are 2 more bars at the top of the stairs, head to either Arena or Tangerine and they will direct you.

 

Second option - Head to cinema on 1st floor. Next to cinema is an entrance to the gaming floor. Head into here and you will see the stairs you walked up in option 1 !!

 

Hope this makes sense, if you still cannot find it ask onwe of the bar mangers they will know

 

See you later

:biggrin:

We will miss this one - just arriving in Melbourne on 27th October - but we'll be there for the next one. Tom, Fiona, Carolyn (14) and Ruari(11) . Leaving the UK tomorrow - few days in Thailand (which is under water at the moment - excellent timing!), then Melbourne on the 27th - SOOOOOO excited !!!
