Port80 is Back in Canberra


Kirk Beers on Tap

It’s been a while, but you crazy folks in the Canberra have been hammering on for a Port80 of your own, so in conjunction with the  UX Australia conference the Australian Web Industry Association (AWIA) is going to be holding one of its famous Port80’s with Free Pizza and maybe Free Beer on Tuesday 25 August.

That’s right go mark it on the calendar right now.

So you have no excuse this time to get out and about and come down for a drink, or just pop around after work. I  have been told there is a large web community in Canberra, so I  expect to see all the Canberra AWIA members (and non members too) come on down and enjoy a beer and chat about all things web.  Also you don’t have to be going to  the conference to attend this FREE event.   Just don’t forget to RSVP, as we need to know the number for the venue.

Where: Tongue and Groove (Corner Bunda and Genge St) Map for outta towners (like me)
Time: 6pm
When: Tuesday 25 August 2009
Cost: FREE
RSVP: Go over to FaceBook and RSVP (need to know the numbers for the venue)

I’m told there is lots of room at the Tongue and Groove, and that  Tuesday night is 2-for-1 pizza night at the Tongue and Groove, which is really cool as that means more Pizza for you and me.

Donna Spencer, a Canberrian,  has mentioned that Canberra has some crazy liquor licensing laws.  Seems that the entire establishment including the restaurant area is under one license such that minors are not allowed.   Just remember that one.

I know I’m going to be there, I hope you can join me.

Did I mention that next week I’m jetting off to Canberra for the first time.  For some reason I have never been to Canberra before.   Hopefuly the weather will behave and not be too cold, I hate the cold weather.   As is the normal for me, I have no idea about the  places of interest and the like in Canberra, suppose I can just wing it.

Looks like there is no conversation here yet, why not start one.
