    I'm curious to hear what OzBargainers have in common to bond over.
    Jimeoin used to do a bit - "That's the thing about a bargain. You can't just wear a bargain. You have to tell people about it. 'See this shirt? $7.50. Bargain.' And you have to say 'Bargain' so that they know that you know it was a bargain."

  • I seem to remember the Red Cow being demolished donkeys years ago, is this a rebuild or reimagining?
    Still seems to be in roughly same spot.
    Just curious

      @cerealsmok3r Youve been busy, Marrickville, Newtown now Penrith.πŸ˜‰
      You'll have to tell us all about those meets & did you find your phone?πŸ€”
      You're as bad as me with Meetup. Really enjoy socializing & going to theirs in the groups I belong to when I can.😊

  • +1

    Sounds fun! I'll come

  • +1

    I'll join too!

    • Sorry guys - have to cancel :/ I've update my vote accordingly.

  • +3

    I'd come! Could bring the spouse too, and two siblings if they're free (but we wouldn't just talk with ourselves, DW).

    Happy to bring a couple of easy-to-access board/card games, nothing too complex and ones that you can socialise with.

    Can take a pic of the game stash for any requests.
    Live 20 mins, siblings live 5 min away.
    Always been skeptical of that pub though, never been inside…

    Will be first meetup I've gone to…

    • +1

      I've no objection to spouse, children & board games, rusty on the games.

    • +1

      Bring them all! Scotty gave me the okay when I asked.

      • Woo hoo! Cyas tonight!

  • +2

    Sounds solid, decent grub there too

    • Thursday's $15 Chicken Schnitzel. Wonder if they're as big as the Maryaong Hotel where I went for Trivia?
      They were so big, people would cut them in half to share, also large serve of Chips & order an extra salad, even then I didn't always eat mine.

      • I've had half be massive on and an average sized one, so I think its a bit of luck involved

  • +1

    can i turn up a bit later as i finish work at 6 and it would take me an hour to get to penrith. if we can arrange some ozbargain shirts or etc that would be great.

    • I eat 'very very' slow, would probably be only quarter way through by the time you arrived. πŸ˜„

    • i'll be attending around 7pm also

    • Yeah not a problem with me

  • +5

    Any females going to this?

    • Me

    • There will be a few from the previous events

  • +2

    Haha sure! Anything for a OzBargain t-shirt

  • +1

    Not that far away, free that night, sounds, good, can catch a train.

  • Where do we meet?

  • +1

    Will someone book a table for …. people?

  • Yep, is it going ahead? The room looks like it has a Max of 30 people? There may not be shirts confirmed?

    • Are you getting there early to hold a table? Don't think they'd take bookings if only 30 ppl allowed in the room.

      • I just googled and saw the 30 person limit on the heritage room. Any info, @11?

        • +1

          Yes booked for 30 and we are still at 22

          • +1

            @11: Awesome thanks

          • +2

            @11: Do we ask for table booked in name of 11 for 30 people?
