Wellington 28 Nov 10.30am Meow Can't Post

Hey!

I'm going to be at Meow (9 Edward St, just off Victoria St, not far from Cuba St - http://goo.gl/maps/5vzOk) at 10.30am on Wednesday 28 November. It would be super awesome if anyone wanted to come hang out for a coffee and a chat, before you head to the red carpet madness or whatever else you have planned for that afternoon!

A friend recommended this cafe, and while the food on the menu is kind of pricey, it seems they have cabinet food as well as fries and the like. It's gluten free, which is one of the reasons I decided to go with it, and it's off the main thoroughfare so might be a bit quieter than some of the cafes on Cuba St. You can check out the menu at http://www.welovemeow.co.nz/

Also, if you like, you can PM me for my mobile number :)

Looking forward to meeting you!
- Rosie

Crap, that clashes with Second Breakfast: [In reply to] Can't Post

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Don't worry about the timing of Second Breakfast. [In reply to] Can't Post

(10:00, under the tripod Weta sculpture, on the corner of Courtney Place and Cambridge Terrace across from the Embassy.)
We'll be at that spot ALLLLLLL day, manning the barricades. Wander down whenever you're free. We'll be the ones with the white Welly-moot t-shirts, way-gorgeous banners and camping stools. It's an obvious spot for people to congregate, and you might have to do some squeezing through if you come later.
So maybe grab your pies and lattes and join us.
And don't forget a hat...and sunscreen...and water...and a handkerchief.
Cheers

PS: there are "comfort stations" right there. Very important.Blush

Awesome! [In reply to] Can't Post

I might wander down to say hello, but crowds = panic attacks for me, so if I bail out, it's nothing personal!

Understood. [In reply to] Can't Post

I once had to walk with extreme haste out of the car museum in the New Forest because of the crush. I'm getting slight palpitations thinking about Wed., to tell truth. As an alternative, there will be a large screen up in Waitangi Park at the Hobbit Craft Market giving live coverage from the red carpet. You might feel more comfortable out there. It will be crowded, too, but you feel more able to GO somewhere - the waterfront, Te Papa for a quiet coffee upstairs in the cafe.

I'm looking forward to seeing the market! [In reply to] Can't Post

I think it's a really great idea. I am so excited :) I'm just doing some last minute packing before heading off at 9 to catch a bus to the airport!

Hobbit market [In reply to] Can't Post

If you buy anything at the WETa tent you get a free cardboard Gandalf hat to put together (something rather large and flat to carry around, but why not? I bought 4 premier pins at once and they gave me 4 hats. I have a suspicion there might be a tie in with the bleecher seat ticket give away but I really don't know, but maybe...if you put it together while sitting on the grass watching vlog #1-9 on the big screen and then actually WEAR the thing...)

That sounds like a plan. [In reply to] Can't Post

I'll be wearing my black Wellingmoot 2005 t-shirt with the ring inscription - I'll keep an eye out for you!

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."
