May I Borrow Your Knowledge, Please?

I figure that if I have you smart people around, I may as well use you 😉

Saturday 21st February, 10AM-11:15AM. Melbourne Victory are having an open training session (and it’s free to come look-see) at Gosch’s Paddock. According to Google, it’s on the corner of Swan and Punt. (Hands up if you want to make a “punt” joke 😉 ) And according to Metlink Melbourne, Richmond Station is also on the corner of Swan and Punt. It’s a big intersection, though. So I’m not exactly sure whereabouts Gosch’s Paddock is. Anyone know how to get there, or even want to come along?

If I do decide to attend, I’ll have a few hours afterward to kill in the city, because I don’t have to be at the Jasper Hotel until 3PM. So I’m looking for somewhere indoors, quiet, clean, cool with a nice bathroom and somewhere I can get free water. My budget may only be $10 for a fast food lunch. I was thinking maybe the State Library, but I don’t think I’d fit in with the literary crowd – I tend to think in LOLcat-speak. (oh hai! ur kweery sux. kthxbai!)

Also, if a venue has lots of comfy chairs and couches, that’ll be awesome. So if you know of a suitable place I can chill out in for free, let me know. I’m not all that familiar with the city except for certain landmarks.

P.S. I will have a camera in tow for the day, and will try to capture photographic evidence of a brothel near Richmond Station. It has a sign out the front saying “Enter at Rear”. Double-entendres make the world a funnier place.

P.P.S. Funnier still is the New Zealander accent. My Australian one just isn’t comical enough.

  1. Looks like Gosch’s Paddock is the grassy bit on the other side of the Swan-Punt (guffaw!) intersection:,+Richmond,+Melbourne&sll=-37.825603,144.987715&sspn=0.003,0.004828&ie=UTF8&ll=-37.824845,144.988375&spn=0.006,0.009656&z=17

    As for places to hang in the city…um…Federation Square (Transport’s not too busy during the day) or Melbourne Central?

  2. You could always go hang out in Borders, with a drop in at Rendezvous (if they are open).

    If it wasn’t for the fact that I am already busy all this weekend I would really think about going to both the Victory training session and also to the cricket on Sunday! It’s always the way isn’t it? I usually do nothing every weekend.
