RiotACT Drinks & Socialising – Southside

By 30 June 2008 40

Event Schedule
  • 13 July 2008 at 3:00 pm

This was orginally posted by Clownkiller but seemed to get chopped in half by our over zealous auto save. I took the liberty of interpreting the remainder for those on the southside interested in a Meet & Greet

Given that some of us (me included) have suggested that we’re too lazy to travel all the way to the South Yass Tavern George Harcourt Inn, is there any interest in a get together on the south side?

Having a beer and recognising that there’s a real person to behind the online alias seems like a good idea

Southside drinkies will be at Soul Bar in woden, 3pm 13 July.

where is best to organise for southside? I have to admit, I mentioned the burns club as it is an easy walk across the ovals for me….

I know that the Mawson Club has Zierholz on tap. Then again the Burns Club is a short although potentially sobering climb home for me. I’m kind of easy but to avoid being a fence sitter I’ll throw my support behing Reality Skin and go with the Mawson Club.

Mawson club would be good, please not on a Friday or Saturday night. If I want to wait a half hour to get a beer, I’ll go to civic, oh and you have to be a member to get in now.

Sorry people, but I just ‘outed’ myself for having impure thoughts about Anne Fulwood in another post. So it’s best that I maintain anonymity.

I went to Mawson last Saturday for a feed and then fronted up to the Mawson Club for a few drinks with friends – I’m a member, but apparently they don’t allow anyone from Canberra / Queanbeyan to enter ther hallowed shithole now unless they are all members!

Be prepared to pay a few dollars just to get in the door, otherwise do as I did and tell them to get stuffed and go somewhere else.

Having to purchase “membership” to enter a club is exactly how Utah run their bars. What a rort.

If you’re a member at the Mawson Club, you can just sign-in your non-member buddies. That’s part of the liquor licensing laws, it’s not at the discretion Mawson Club. That’s unless you’re not really just dropping by casually and have in fact been there every Friday night for the last month or so – in which case they probably do have the right to ask you to join.

For ages I used to try and avoid joining by claiming to be a “country member” then one night the manager said, “yeah, we remember … now join up of piss off”

There’s no membership reqired for the bar out the front though.

Apologies for double posting.

If we don’t hold it on the same night then those wanting to attend both could make it. If that’s the case I’d go for this Sunday arvo, say around 4.00pm in the front bar (for those afraid of having to join).

Nup. Could be this weekend if we manage to pull our fingers out. I’ll be enjoying a quiet ale this sunday arvo at the Mawson Club from around 1600hrs anyway – so whoever wants is welcome to join me.

Yeah Mawson Club is run by an idiot but 57 (bar outside) has $3 schooners Wed-Fri 5-6. I’ll be there Friday arvo but also would be happy to meet other rioters there at another time as it’s close for me. CK, I’ll try and get down Sundy arvo.

If you enjoyed a couple of beers out at the George Harcourt on Friday and thought you might back it up with a couple of quiet ales on Sunday arvo and the chance to meet at least one RiotACT bod, then I’ll be having a beer at “57″ which is apparently what the bar at the front of the Mawson Club is called from around 4.00pm on Sunday.

Just look out for the fat bastard and you wont miss me.

OK, being a northsider myself i’ve no idea where the best place to go down south is but there seems to be a fair few votes for the mawson club or nearby. Given the mawson clubs members only policy (and we like to be more inclusive) I’ll propose Bar 57 an to take advantage of happy hour, On Friday 11 July at 5.30pm.

any violent objections?

There’s OJOs at Tuggeranong, as well as PJs Bogan bar, also at Tuggeranong.

5.30 next Friday. No do. With any luck I’ll be propped up in front of a roaring fire, sipping single-malt and watching the sun set over the snow covered peaks of the Victorian alps.

Why not early afternoon on a Sunday? Everyone should be able to get there if it’s around say 2pm on a Sunday arvo, at Bar 57.

But dare I suggest another respectable venue that I doubt many would object to: The Soul Bar, Woden? (formerly the Contented Soul)? No membership requirements there, and close to the Interchange. Not that any buses leave after six on a Sunday night, but I doubt it’ll last that long…

What do you say?

I will be at Bar 57 for a bit this afternoon, before graduating to karaoke at the Weston Irish Club.

Next week, I’m up for the Bar 57, the Soul Bar, or anywhere else southsidely.

Soul Bar is a good idea!

Don’t know how you managed to that, I was talking to them last night, and you can only sign in interstate visitors, all locals need to become members, this will become madatory across ALL clubs in the ACT by the end of July.
