  • Date: Tuesday, 3 March 2009
  • Time: 5:30
  • Venue: Platform Bar @ Grand Central Hotel, 270 Ann Street (under Central Station – NOT Fihelly’s Bar, but the smaller one next door).
  • RSVP: Thursday, 26 February 2009, using this form (or email me).

We are looking for sponsorship for this event for food. If your company hasn’t put a freeze on expenses – we’d love to hear from you :)
