For all those going to the monster trucks; get there early as I suspect the parking will be horrendous and the views only marginally better. That being said; enjoy.

Remember that this will eclipse the previous attendence record at this venue by about 9,800 people (Based on a figure of 10,000 tickets one of my colleagues was kicking around this morning).

same monster trucks for this bloke too. Rugby presso RUC 7pm, H-Block happy hour. sports bar greyhound betting with gay abandon

UPDATE: KillYourLiverFest…

Drank all night did not go to bed, went to work managed to suck down a beer at lunch albeit very strained…. reving myself up for part two starting in 1 hour……

I haven’t killed my liver….yet, but I may have some trouble getting it through the pub doorway.

Tonight (Friday), from 5-9 PM, Material Pleasures is holding its Spring Sale at the Botanic Gardens.

Material Pleasures is a second hand and seconds clothing shop, normally selling from Gorman House Markets.

Caution Horses are playing at the sale, as they have done for quite a few of the biannual (does that mean twice a year) sales.

I presume there will be grog and nibblies available.

Ive been informed the boozing starts in 5 hours, takes a brief break for work and then continues on until the wee hours of saturday morning….

tix – How ever much you can afford
entry – via your nearest/favourite pub attire – yes

go the monster trucks. fire breathing car damage. groovy. if only they would put a greyhound race on around the perimiter with monkeys on the dogs backs as weapons

Monster trucks at Narrabundah dog track.

Details here.

The Durham on Friday is the place to be seen, happensance I saw Simon Corbell in Green Square last Friday looking earnestly towards the Durham ready to go in and check out some faces ?

My wife supressed my exclamation “Look it’s Seven Storey Simon” with her hand quite quickly.

And to kick it off:
The RMC’s annual Beat the Retreat and 1812 Overture is on Thursday and Friday next week (29 and 30 Sept). Tis a whole bunch of (to me) semi-interesting marching stuff and then a great concert with the RMC band’s usual mix of classical and popular, finished off with the great guns of Tchaikovsy’s 1812 Overture.

Yes, I know it’s a week away but if you want to go you should think about booking tickets now. There might be some coupon in the CT you’re sposed to have, but I haven’t seen one and my advice would be to ring RMC and demand tickets (they’re free).
