U3A Diners Group (Friday Lunches)

Our monthly lunches for 2020 started this month at the Hot Wok restaurant in Macalister St. on 14 February – Valentine’s Day! I haven’t heard of any romantic proposals over lunch, but I did hear that the food was good, as was the company, with about 40 of you enjoying the occasion.
Now we move on to Black Friday – Friday, 13 March, at the Austral Hotel on the corner of Nelson and Victoria Sts. The Austral is known for its steaks, and has a steak special for $17.90; but it also has salads, Seniors meals for $13, and main meals ranging in price from $21 to $31, with a 20% discount if you have a Seniors card. Could you arrive soon after11.30 please; there is some parking at the back of the hotel, and also in the adjoining streets. As usual I’d appreciate a reply by email to joc.wood.mackay@gmail.com or text to 0403294364 to give the restaurant an idea of numbers. So please do join us for another happy, sociable lunch.
Morning Tea
This year we’re planning to have a morning tea every three months at which we’ll invite a guest speaker to inform or entertain us, or both. Our first morning tea was held yesterday, Monday, 24th, and we were very much informed and entertained by Acting Sergeant Steve Smith of the Mackay Crime Prevention Unit. After a delicious Devonshire Morning Tea.
This is your usual reminder of our lunch next week – Friday, 13th, at the Austral Hotel. Nice and central, and the food is usually good, so we look forward to seeing you there at 11.30 am. They have specials, including a rump steak special, Seniors meals for $13, and mains for $21 to $31 which are discounted 20% if you have a Seniors card. So that I can give numbers to the hotel, if you’re coming please email me at joc.wood.mackay@gmail.com or text to 0403294364.
This year we’ve had Valentine’s Day, Black Friday, and April should be Good Friday, but obviously we’ll change that and will go out, instead, on Friday, 17 April, probably to Magpies Sporting Club at Glenella.
I’m looking forward to catching up with friends from last year, and new members who will join us on our monthly outings.

All the best for a great year.
