Going to a game interstate? Ticketing, how you're getting there etc.

If any other EFH people are going, I hope to have a drink with you all at the Novotel prior to the game (where Travel and Sports Australia's coach picks you up from).

I wouldn't worry about catching the bus to TD. It will only take you 30-40 minutes to walk straight down Collins St. Walking to the ground, where ever they are playing is great to soak up the atmosphere.

Yeah always good walking to the game for the atmosphere but if you can't be bothered the tram is also good for a bit

Its just a pub but it has food 7 days a week, a reputation for sport, the owner loves Eagles fans and the drinks are cheaper than the Novotel. 24 hr licence is good too!

I have never seen that and I have stayed at the Novotel a few times. Is it on the Elizabeth St side of the arcade or the Collins St side? Might have a look before/after the Essendon game.


Charles Dickens Tavern - 290 Collins Street.
Turn right on Collins out of the Novotel. Walk past the Collins St entrance to Block Arcade. Before you reach Elizabeth St there is another, dead end arcade on your right. It looks like it goes nowhere but there are stairs on the right going down to the Dickens (basement level). Back entrance from Block Arcade also (near Haighs).

I think you guys physically over-estimate my level of fitness!!! :P

A few quiet ones at the Novotel, then a coach trip to the ground will be just fine thank you!

Seriously though, I can't wait to make the trip, as one of the guys who's heading over has his birthday that weekend, so it'll be a good double celebration that weekend.

When over in Melb for GF, we walked everywhere but made a bad choice when we thought we would walk to SEN offices in Richmond..... we were told it wasnt far from the G.

Took us just under an hour to walk there. Bad choice. :(

Ah, so they haven't invaded Perth yet?

They were the hottest property on the market for a month or so back when they were first brought to Melbourne. People driving an hour out of town at midnight and lining up at that hour for donuts. Haven't heard a word of them for months since!

They were in Melbourne when I went to the Geelong game last year. Best donuts I have ever eaten and I have eaten a few. It was funny walking through the airport and seeing people carrying 4 x dozen boxes of donuts onto planes.

Where can you buy these donuts in Melb, will have to get some when im in Melb in the next few weeks.

Remind me of when we went to MovieWorld on Gold Coast and they had these type of donuts on a stick called Churrio's and they were expensive at $3 a pop but we went all round MovieWorld looking for these donuts and my brother followed round the guy with the Churrio cart who was selling them.

My brother went back to MovieWorld a second time just to get Churrio's

There is a menu of the donuts there as well. As the person serving me last time said "don't waste your time ordering less than a dozen".

Well i did manage to get myself some krispy kreme donuts. Have to say very nice donuts esp Caramel Cookie. I was on the look out for the stores in Melb but actually searched the entire Telstra Dome when i went to the Roos/Saints match. Finally tracked down a chick who was wheeling the cart round.

Few days before i left i relized there was a KK store just down the road from where i stayed, the store in the UnderGround food court in the Melb Central Shopping Centre. Stocked up there before i left.
