22nd June 2007, 12:26 PM
Thank god for this site - finally found a site that get's past my work internet nanny hahahaha:D
How is everyone??? Hope things are cool with you, shame about the weather etc etc etc
So .......just (well 3 wks ago) arrive in Melbourne and god is it good to be back in a city after 4 months in Mildura:eek: (harvest work - 2nd yr visa!!!) Me and my fella are living over in St Kilda but have yet to have a proper night out in Melbourne, where are the best places to go? We're both varied in our tastes (I like to Dance - he doesnt)in music and we're both pretty normal guys who like just to chill out in a pub or go crazy in a club. I spent nearly 5 months in Sydney and looking forward to seeing how diff the scene down here is to up there. Also we're looking to meet friends so say hi, if ya can help:D :D

I love the differences between going out in Melb and Sydney. Growing up here in Sydney it's fun to go out in another town (which is exactly what Melbournites would say about going out in Sydney).
My fave Melb hangs: Love Machine on Sundays, Rawhides when they're on, Q+A on Thursdays (RIP almost), Midsumma when it's on in Jan/Feb, there are a heap more too. Roxy and Hoolahoop both sound great, but I'm yet to check them out yet.

Oh does anyone know what the deal is with the Prince Of Wales in St Kilda. Thats right at the end of my road and have heard it is either a gay pub or runs gay nights....any clues??

Cheers for that Tim D.
I did fall in love with Sydney as a place and a good night out, i kinda miss it but yeah i know what you mean that it's always good to get away from ya home town and venture out. I'm from Birmingham in the Uk and had many nights out in Manchester & liverpool and a few in london.
Just in that annoying stage at the moment where not sure what places are like adn the people that go there but am sure with some perserverance (and some alcohol!!) will manage to get that round issue.

Prince of Wales downstairs bar on a Monday night is GAY.. always packed, no dancing but some disco music.. whole lot of men squished into a tiny space having beers.. love it.. On sat nights there is a huge metro crowd that is v.gay friendly and a good mix.. but most of them are off their chops..
22nd June 2007, 03:18 PM
We had heard good stuff about it but guess we've never been there on a Monday night, thanks for the info, will defo have to give it a try since it's within staggering distance!!! hehehe
22nd June 2007, 03:32 PM
And it's got, like dollar pots on Monday nights or something doesn't it Robbie?
22nd June 2007, 03:35 PM
Are pots the big ones or the small ones???
22nd June 2007, 03:37 PM
Ummmmm someone from Melb needs to help here. In Sydney they're called middys and schooners, with middys being the small ones. In Melbs they are just "pots". I think they are small, but.......Robbie?
22nd June 2007, 03:39 PM
so confusing, why can't ya just have pints and halves of pints, so much easier hahahahaha
22nd June 2007, 03:51 PM
Who cares what they're called, it's what inside that counts, eh?
22nd June 2007, 03:57 PM
thats true, i just like to make sure i'm gettin the most out of my money!!!!
22nd June 2007, 04:41 PM
They're about $1.80 pots now (sydney schooner size) , were called $1 pots back in the day..
22nd June 2007, 04:43 PM
oh cool, so they are the big ones then, that good, no point if they are tiny!!!! finsih them in one drink, hehehehe
22nd June 2007, 04:58 PM
$1.80? Man, that's inflation for ya..
22nd June 2007, 05:03 PM
well thats about 65pence in my mother land so hey ho I'm not complaining hahahaha
22nd June 2007, 05:12 PM
Damn poms and your good exchange rates.
22nd June 2007, 05:14 PM
yeah but at least you lot have the good weather - well maybe not now. it's freezing in Melbourne and silly me agreed to do the 6pm shift on a friday night!!!
22nd June 2007, 05:17 PM
Your choice to move to Melbourne, ha ha. Actually it's a bit cold here at the moment, but nowhere near as freezing as Mexico/Melbourne.
22nd June 2007, 05:19 PM
I guess so, but hey melbournes a cool city, just gotta get out there and see it!!!!
Any plans 4 wkend???
22nd June 2007, 05:43 PM
Melbourne really rocks, I really love that city.
After the recent long weekend here in syd, I'm taking things hell easy at the moment. I've even sworn off alcohol for one whole month. Tomorrow marks my one week anniversary of that and there are a lot of temptations at the moment!
22nd June 2007, 05:49 PM
Not sure yet, think mite have an easy one, feel like sleeping for a week so prob just take it easy and slow, save money so can have a big one next weekend, feel like goin on a big bender, haven't had one since got down here and feel like goin out and makin a tit of myself infront of people I've never met......hahahahaha
22nd June 2007, 05:51 PM
Better doing it in front of people you've never met than people you have!
The Market is always pretty good for that purpose...
22nd June 2007, 05:56 PM
Cool beans will look that up on Google or something.
