Whilst the re-opening on Academy club last week kinda took the limelight, I noticed something equally as important for canberra’s club scene happening at my regular jaunt – cube in Garema place.
They had this SMS thing that put questions and answers from a service called 199query up on their plasma screens that was launched the same night as Academy’s opening. The bar staff said that it was the first in Australia and they’ve received national press coverage on it (apparently it was in the Canberra Times last week). I must admit I used it several times just for the novelty of having my text up on the screen.
This sort of cool technology and entertainment innovation makes me proud to be a Canberran 🙂
