Default Anyone in Sydney

Anyone in Sydney fancy a meet up before I lose the plot?

Been in Australia for just over a month now, and if I dont start making new mates I think I could end up like Tom Hanks in cast away shortly.

Meet up section is closed for some reason

Hit me upppp

There used to be a group that met up on a Friday night in Sydney. Try messaging Swervo (he's not around here much anymore but may check in).

Closed due to lack of use over the last few years, I suspect. Shame, it used to be buzzing!
Swervo is a good bet, as Dorothy says

Swervo posted the other day so he's still around but I don't know if there are any formal meet ups. He's a thoroughly nice bloke so I'm sure he'd have a beer with you sometime. (I'd invite you for a G&T but we moved on a few weeks back.)

What are you into? Throw yourself into some hobbies, sports, volunteering, etc., and I'm sure you'll meet loads of people and click with at least a few. Don't restrict yourself to Brits. Lots of migrants in Sydney, all in a similar position. Make the first move - invite your colleagues or neighbours for coffee/beer/lunch/dinner. People have busy lives and existing networks and may not realise you are in need of some pals, but are generally welcoming.

Yes, here I am look!

Still here - just been avoiding the inevitable Left vs Right shitshow threads, which doesn't leave much else TBH.

We have a small group of folks that meet in the city for drinks every Thursday evening, and will be doing that this very evening - You'd be more than welcome to join us.

We normally met up at a pub in the CBD for drinks and dinner - pub normally chosen during the day on Thursday.

If you PM me your telephone number, I'll let you know where we're heading tonight!
