What will you do for fun in Canberra?

By threeze - 6 November 2006 21

We will do anything, as long as we have PANTS.

PANTS (People Against Non-eventful TimeS) is a Canberra based thing that wants to make people aware that there is more to do in Canberra than getting smashed at Mooseheads or taking detailed photos of building sites in Civic (and then writing obsessively long posts about them on a blog).

We want people to say “yes” to things they wouldn’t normally consider, rather than an automatic “no”. We want to prove Canberra isn’t the boring Public Service town it is made out to be, and if we can’t do that because there is nothing to do, we want to make our own fun to compensate (ideally, to over compensate).

So, check us out, let us know about anything that is fun in the ACT that we may miss, and most of all… Just. Have. Fun.

Oh, and it is our annual “Welcome to November” party this weekend. It’s at Muddle Bar, Civic from about 8pm. Here is an invite:

Welcome to November

PANTS – Pay Attention Now Thumper – Sheessh!

I stand corrected. I shall examine it in much more detail next time.

Vote for me as ruler of the world.

Thumper, the idea of PANTS isn’t be to a gig guide or like the DIY Wotz On, but more as a way to get people to actually do things rather than posting about them on the internet and/or just heading down to the local every weekend.

It started as a way of us getting our friends to commit to things they wouldn’t normally do and it would be nice if we could extend the reach of that.

You know, PANTS could be a front for the People Against Northern Territory Society…

Better put that one under conspiracies….

Thumper 11:29 am 07 Nov 06

SGS does have the most boring thing on the whole internet.

And that includes and

Which are boith rather boring as well.

However, isn’t PANTS just a derivative of WOTZ ON IN WOLLONGONG, sorry, I mean CANBERRA which we have on RA for every weekend?

And by the way, ‘Pants’ in English slang means, well, rubbish, crap, pathetic….

Mr Evil, “Canberra is boring sometimes, and I blame the Police for that!”

It is obviously all the fault of George Gregan.

LurkerGal – I think you’re on the money. Maybe SGS wasn’t as famous as we thought.

Mr Evil 10:32 am 07 Nov 06

Bulding sites are interesting – especially when there’s an element of trespass involved. 🙂

Canberra is boring sometimes, and I blame the Police for that!

Bonfire, I think he was referring to SGS, not you.

Have you SEEN the 750 photos of “the new civic centre”?

kaydo 10:26 am 07 Nov 06

bonfire – what’s all that about? what did threeze do?

hk0reduck – Irony noted. But take a look at the site, there’s a bit more going on than just the welcome to November thing.

I like how the aim is to prove that
“There is more to do in Canberra than getting smashed at Mooseheads” while holding an event which will lead to people getting smashed at the Muddle bar.

With this alone I can think of 10 more things to do in Civic alone.
1. Get smashed at the bourbon bar.
2. Get smashed the phoenix.
3. Get smashed at Nitro.
4. Get smashed at Sultans.
5. Get smashed at Meche. (Although I wouldn’t reccomended it)
6. Get smashed at ICBM.
7. Get smashed at Echo.
8. Get smashed at North.
9. Get smashed at King O’Malleys.
10. Get smashed at PJ O’Reillys.

Thankyou PantS for showing me the way %D
