I think Adelaide has taken the cake on this one - but is there any interesting in having a Sydney get together or christmas party?

When does Annie Leibowitz at the MCA finish?

I think we had some discussion about going there at some point ....

Or maybe a holiday Meximeet at Baja Cantina?

OK ...

The Annie Leibowitz exhibition continues through till March, so my thinking is that we perhaps set a date in early to mid January for that. Hopefully, it shouldn't be too crowded ... Hours are 10-5, so maybe 3:30-ish? Admission is $15, Concessions $10, and MCA Members free.

And perhaps Baja Cantina on Tuesday evening next week? Dec 21 ... ??
