wonderment for everything

Things! Stuff!

Up and coming event-type things:

Saturday September 15th: Movie Night!

Starting at around 7pm, this movie night is in aid of a charity named Child's Play. Founded by the authors of Penny Arcade, this organisation raises money to donate video game platforms and games to children's hospitals.
Price: $10 donation (includes popcorn and a drink.)
-We at afk will be covering the cost of the popcorn and drink, so every cent of your donation goes directly to the charity. Mater Children's Hospital (which is just up the road from the cafe itself) was the first Australian hospital to benefit from this charity, so dig deep.

Movies showing:
-The Princess Bride
-The Big Lebowski

We anticipate this thing lasting until about 1 in the morning, so don't plan anything for early the next day. The order of the movies is not set in stone.

6pm Saturday September 29th - 8am Sunday September 30th: All-Nighter!
It's another all-nighter! Bring your pillows and blankets, and come along early to reserve yourself a couch.

Price: This one costs $20 for members and $25 for non-members, which provides you with all-night intarwebs access. Book early to go in the draw for a crappy MP3 player!

For $20 more you can get the meal deal, which constitutes one main and one drink for dinner, and one meal and one drink for breakfast. The kitchen closes at 10pm, after which time you'll be stuck with whatever Jason can produce.

Aw, i want to come to the movie night but alas i will be doin' the writers festival + study thing :(. Hope it goes well & i will be able to make it to the next one...
Aww...sadness. Don't worry, the next one's already being planned.
ZOMG that's the reason I (probably) can't come either, I'm a BWF volunteer :) You too? Or are you going to see some events?
I'm eventing (yaya so excited, there asre *so* many good sessions on this year!). I've been thinking of volunteering for a while though, might do so next year :).
Yeah, volunteering is fun, though being able to wander about, see events and buy books is probably better ;) I'm just a bwf volunteer addict. Hope you enjoy the festival!
