Little Birdy @ the venue THIS WEEK

By kaydo at 9:00 pm on Monday, June 4, 2007

11th hour update, but constantly cool. Little Birdy are playing at the venue in Erindale on Wednesday June 6th. If you missed them at the ANU recently, or if you’ve seen them in alarming rotation on late night tv from their ‘live at the chapel’ appearance, you’ll want to get down to the southside. The venue website also allows you to purchase tickets online, so get there.

The upcoming list of gigs is also on the venue site, so check it out for some more highlights. (nope, I don’t feel the need to link to them a third time in one post)

Weekend actionovich

By lukeo at 5:05 pm on Wednesday, May 30, 2007

We are back with the fun!
After some sickness, a few overseas trips and some landscaping, we are all back on board for fun this weekend.
Friday night is where it is at this weekend with Warren Millers flick. If you have not got your tickets, you can’t say you were not warned. Still might be time, so get on to Ticketek. If you do have tickets, meet us in the NGS lobby at 6:15 and join us for food and beverages after.

This weekend also holds the Rally of Canberra, which is a fine way to spend a free day. It gets dusty, so best not to wear anything white.

If you are after something completely different, Sunday at Glebe Park is the venue for the Traditional German Lantern Walk. Kicks off at 6pm. Find further details in our calendar.

If you have any other event that we have missed coming up, please shoot us an email.

Event/Review: Whats Next on the Postcode Pub Crawl!

By lukeo at 9:00 am on Saturday, May 5, 2007

It has been a very very busy time at PANTS of late. Ice-Hockey, Bundanoon, ANZAC Day, PANTS Postcode Pub Crawl, African Drumming, Uni Pub and more!!!!
I am tired even thinking about it!
There was a lot of interest in the PANTS Postcode Pub Crawl and the good news is we have knocked off a few postcodes, but much more fun to be had. Threeze, you have not missed the fun!!!

Whats Next:
The next instalment will be on Thursday 10th May:
7:00pm – Lighthouse (aka sails), Belconnen
After that 8:30pm? – UC Bar
How to Recognise US: We will be in possession of the official PANTS Postcode Pubcrawl Book as pictured here.

After a slow start to the Pub Crawl, it was clearly evident that my 45 minute timeslots were a bit to ambitious for us, as by the time we hit the third pub we were already 2hours behind schedule.
So moving forward, we will be trying to knock off at least 2 pubs per week, and if possible 3.

Postcodes Complete:

2600 - OPH I have not been to OPH since the summer, and what a suprise to find it very very quite. As you would expect from OPH, a very relaxed atmosphere with cheap drinks. Can’t wait for spring, where this will make it back on to my regular watering holes. The only problem was the ‘DJ’ got a bit to excited while mixing a jazz tune.

2601 – Casino Canberra (Photo misplaced)
Two-Up on ANZAC Day. Was a frenzy of fun. ‘Head em Up’ rang out across the room. Great fun, lost some money and my voice while yelling.

2603 - My Cafe, Manuka Good food, cold beer and some rain is what met us at Manuka. A PANTS regular favourite.

2604 0 Belgian Beer Cafe, Kingston This is where the action was cranking up. X!mon enjoyed a mini yard while I forced Kaydo to reach out for a beer she had never tasted before. Unfortunately it was a bad choice of beer on my part 🙂
Beer is good if you get the right one, but take some money. A round will set you back a weeks pay!

2612 - Debacle, Braddon Another PANTS regular favourites. Great range of beers, great food, great place, great… etc. My choice of beverage is the Czech that comes in a 500ml stein.
