    Default [Canberra] Toulouse-Lautrec Exhibition

    Who's interested in absorbing a bit of historical French art/culture? The exhibition starts in just over three weeks.

    A sketch plan of the proposed event (on a weekend day), would be:
    Arriving by French car, to a predetermined carpark
    Viewing the exhibition
    Retiring to the carpark or a nearby venue for DIY/bringaplate pseudo-French catering
    Returning home tired but happy

    A show of hands, s'il vous plaît. Comments on dates preferred, would help.

    I'll get in quick. Please NOT the Australia day long weekend. Have this seriously booked... for my wedding.
    A long weekend is probably the best as it means travel is not cutting into the 'work day drudge hours'.

    What better venue for a hitching, than this exhibition at our dear old NGA? Surely it's not too late to change venues?

    Seriously, I am surprised at the lack of interest so far. People like Toulouse-Lautrec and de Maupassant, would have relished the internet, with its inimitable nature that sweeps through their ascribed blend of studious minutiae, visceral carnality, informed banter and a general thirst for living.

    Yes Addo it would be grand venue but all the invites have been sent! Plus I've got a couple of guests flying in from Europe and they may like Canberra, they are ex Melbournian's and the "Old Home Town" is a tasty bait to tease them with.
