First Members’ Night at Bunch of Grapes

Members’ Night Report

Ballarat Writers at Bunch of Grapes hotel

Early arrivals check the menu

The first members’ night at our new venue, the Bunch of Grapes Hotel (at 401 Pleasant St South), was a darn fine evening.

About 25 attended and almost half came early for a meal (we note with no little excitement that Wednesday is “parma night” – $20, a choice of five parmas, all as big as your head). There were several new faces, who hopefully will return to sign up at the special members’ night in May. Three people read in the open mic event.

The venue is excellent: a dedicated, spacious room (with its own toilets!), friendly and efficient staff, quite reasonable prices and generous serves. Ease of access and plenty of parking space were also appreciated.

The next members’ night is on 25 May at 7pm, or enjoy a meal beforehand – the kitchen opens at 5.30pm.
