i’ve got nothing witty to say about… golf

By kaydo at 11:51 pm on Tuesday, June 12, 2007

Ridiculously cold winter nights are the best time for outdoor activities. We’re bringing back the tradition of the golf driving range. It’s on:

What: Hitting golf balls
Where: Narrabundah Golf Driving Range
When: 7pm Wednesday 13/06
Why: Canberra doesn’t have a baseball batting cage. I’ve checked. Also, there’s heaters.

In the case of PANTS, tradition = when we think of it. When should we do this again?

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)

Handball is a sport. Come see.

The folks at ACT Handball (the olympic kind, not the playground kind) are setting up some “Come & Try Sessions” in the next few days. If you’re interested in checking out the sport, or maybe pegging a smallish ball towards a goal (as opposed to at someone a la dodgeball) then check it out…

Cost: $6

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.

Status/Review:
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.

Post Pointing-out Pubtastic Pants Participation

By threeze at 10:21 pm on Wednesday, April 18, 2007

Ever been confused as to why a pub has the name it has? Like, Civic Pub? There is nothing terribly civc minded about the place, but it does have a great atmosphere and beer and pool tables.

Turns out the people that own that place opened another obtusely named place, the Uni Pub.

And Thursday night, PANTS is going there. There is likely to be purchases made (probably involving beer or a chicken parmie) and hopefully I can get on a pool table and show to the world why I should never be allowed on a real life pool table out in public. Oh, and I can’t wait to see if they have a jukebox and if it has as good of a selection as I remember the Civic Pub having when I was at uni.

So, that’s Thursday Night at the Uni Pub (on University Avenue).

Event: Juzzie Smith blows at the GreenRoom

By lukeo at 12:55 pm on Friday, April 13, 2007

No, the Green Room has not re-located to Fyshwick at the title implies. Juzzie Smith, a Demon on the Harmonica, is playing at the Green Room on Saturday Night.
I was lucky enough to catch Juzzie at the Byron Bay Blues and Roots Festival last weekend, and he rocked out in a big way. He is definitely a stand out performer and clearly loves his music.
So get out there and support local music. Supported by Little Smoke, doors open at 8:30pm and you will be able to pick up a ticket at the door for $12. More information online at www.greenroomcanberra.com

For those heading to the night time balloon fiesta, never fear, we will be able to head on over after the festivities!!!!
