Friday Drinks in Sydney …

In Sydney there is a regular Friday gathering of a group of people who are passionate about the Australian internet and technology community.

These drinks go under a few names – Official Friday or Silicon Beach. Whatever it is called everybody is welcome!

The current details are:

  • 5pm at the Grace Hotel in Bar 77 (the mezzanine level)
  • It’s on every single Friday (although there was a break for Christmas and New Year)

It’s usually quiet enough to talk and they have 2-for-1 drinks until 6.30pm – some beers, wines and cocktails.

Come along if you are around in Sydney, they are a friendly crowd and new people are always welcome.
