[WA] OzBargain 15th Birthday Perth Meetup 19th December - 1PM at Varsity Northbridge

Hi all,
Would anyone be keen on a meetup on Sunday 19th December for 1pm lunch?
Mack daddy is closed so I was thinking of Chimek (fried chicken) in Northbridge for easy access and free CPP parking
Let us know in the poll if you're in. (ideally sooner than later so Scotty can organise t shirts)

Edit:
It is now CONFIRMED and the location is Varsity Northbridge - 94 Aberdeen St, Northbridge WA 6003
The spend cap is around $25 per person including drinks

Update 17/12
Ok everybody. This is the latest update.
They have kindly accommodated the last minute catering order and I have PAID for the food (thanks Scotty)
It is booked under "OZB Birthday"
Food to come out at 1.15.
There will be fries, chicken wings, beef nachos, 4 pizzas in which ONE pizza is vegan meat.

Update 2 19/12
We are in the Sun room.
Update on drinks - i will start a bar tab with the remaining funds. It should work out to roughly 1 drink per person.
If u want more than 1 drink, please buy your own so its fair and everyone can have a drink.
See you all there.

Just a reminder it is a licensed venue so if you're under 18, please bring a guardian along (Please PM me as that affects numbers)
Please dont smash the place otherwise Scotty will get the bikes to come for ya.

  • I will be in the Perth area but have another function to attend 😢

    Maybe I sneak out for 10 mins to grab a shirt and a badge, though I won't be sporting the Slazenger outfit. ;)

    Hmmm not a good response so far.
    Would ppl be interested in meeting up on Saturday 18th?

    • -2

      I can do the 18th. Is it possible to book the alfresco area so doggies are also welcome?

      • +1

        Hi all, reply to this comment if you can make it on the 18th instead

        • I can make it either day, do we know what day and time now?

    • Another vote for the 18th, but I can see this is getting messy working out numbers! ;)

  • If I can walk I'd be interested in the Sunday (Karate wind up day before where we train at the beach - I'm usually too sore to get out of bed next day though :))

  • +1

    We need 15 ppl so bumping this/get ur lurker friends/family to sign up

    • Is this for the 18th or the 19th?

      • +1

        Both!
        Vote in the poll for Sunday 19th
        Vote for Sat 18th by replying to my comment above.

  • I'm in but prefer 18 December (a day after my Bday and 19th, going to Nobu).

    Isn't Chimek a bit small for a get together?

  • Hey I can make it on the Sunday (3 people).

    • Ok cheers, have u voted above?

  • I could only do the saturday. Sunday not an option.

    not the end of the world if its not possible.

    The meetup a few years ago in the city was fun :)

  • ok i'm interested for Korean Fried Chicken

  • Sounds good, I'm in (with either date - no preference) - it looks like Chimek is wheelchair accessible from Google streetview - can anyone confirm?

  • +2

    Hey guys, I think chimek northbridge is closed on Sundays so I think 18th will be the only available date if you want to have it there

    • Good pick up - just looked on the website, definitely closed on Sundays

        Any suggestions? Ill change to varsity Northbridge and can get pizzas, chicken wings, nachos. It's getting late so I don't know if I can get a booking

  • +3

    Just an update: it should be going ahead now we have the numbers. Ill change it Varsity Northbridge (which is open on Google maps). We can get pizzas, wings, nachos.
    I'll prolly need to call them by tomorrow to check if they can accommodate us.

    If anyone has any other suggestions, let me know

    • There's Hoodburger and all the other vendors in Old Shanghai - that should cater for most food requirements (except for maybe Gluten Free) - not sure if we can reserve space though, which could be an issue.

    • +1

      Varsity sounds good. They have some veg options too. if you are able to confirm the time once its all booked. cheers for organising.

      • they dont have alot of vegetarian options
        I've ordered fries and a bbq vegan chicken pizza

  • @mmd can you confirm that this is confirmed for Sunday?

    • +1

      This is confirmed! Im going to work out if we can get some deals on food

  • Thanks mmd for organising the meetup. Is it possible to cater food for vegetarian?

    • they dont have alot of vegetarian options
      I've ordered fries and a bbq vegan chicken pizza

      • On worries Mate, thanks for trying. I will join fellow ozbargaines next time.

  • Any idea how long this will last? I’ve got an eye appointment at 140 at booragoon. It makes it difficult.

    How do we register for a t shirt?

    Hi,

    Meetup event is happening today. Be sure to be familiar with the checkin process so that the event organiser knows you are here, and we are able to give out the Not a Bot badge later.

    • Unrelated to this but I completely missed that with Chazzozz's meetup. With how much people were talking about checking in I assumed it was the COVID check in required everywhere :/

      • +2

        Chazzozz manually checked everyone in afterwards so everyone still got the Not a Bot badge for that event. Fortunately it was a small meetup.

    • +1

      glad I checked, I didn't know about this - I'll be easy to spot anyway, I'll be the dude in the wheelchair :)

      • +1

        See you there!

    Would anyone like to help co-org with the check in process?

    • +1

      I can assist if you like, I should be there quite a bit before 1.

    Here, waiting for the rest of the bargain hunters to turn up :)

      Thanks for organising - it was a good afternoon!

      See you all next year…

  • +2

    Thanks for organising, mmd. Good to meet you all. Sorry that no one else bothered to turn up. Hopefully next year there's a better turn out.

  • Gee I wish I could have come along. Had an eye appointment that made it difficult.

    Maybe we can set a date for next year by end of January. I’m hoping to be travelling for nearly three months and probably won’t be able to make it. But if the date is set, those of us who are interested can put it in our diaries.

    • I think part of the issue was the other event that was being organised, was cancelled due to lack of numbers, so this one didn't have as much time to be put together, mmd can probably correct me on this, if I'm wrong.

      • +1

        Maybe January would be better, but then Scotty wants the party in either November/December

        Sounds about right. The one schedule last weekend was cancelled cos I think the OP posted it but then didn't have time to organise venue etc etc. Noone took over and I couldn't cos I was away.

        I enjoyed organising it so don't mind doing it again next year. Maybe a sit-down restaurant Asian restaurant next time?

        • +2

          I think that if things are organised early enough, we should be able to get decent numbers. November sounds like a good idea, December can be a bit crazy with stuff going on before Christmas for people and kids on school holidays which might complicate things too. Would be happy to come along to more, as long as the venue is wheelchair accessible (entrance and bathroom facilities are both important here).

    Hi all, ozbargain shirts has arrived!
    Can someone who work/live in more central location help distribute them?
    There is plenty of T shirts and bags so even if u didnt attend the event, pls come grab one.

    • I'm in Oakford so not central :(

      Guessing you're nowhere near me if I want to grab some merch?

      PM is fine of course.
