Default New Year's Day - Brisbane

Really early heads up, but thats not a bad thing at this time of year!

For more years than I can remember now there is been a gathering of Expats at the Pig and Whistle in Rverside/Eagle Street, Brisbane on New Years Day. Most of us are either current or former BE posters but there are also now a lot of others who come along for the craic.
Any time after midday usually, as we emerge from hangovers or night shifts, everyone welcome, so if you are at a loose end, feel free to come along.
