Dubai Do - 13 December 2018 [Cancelled]

Hi All,

After a fun DXB Do in May this year I thought perhaps we should have a repeat in more pleasant climate. Though it may be a little short notice please do consider dropping by, whether you're a regular contributor, a lurker or regular of another airline entirely, all are welcome for an evening of drinks.

The last Do was at the Eloquent Elephant, which I propose tentatively as the venue again but open to suggestions. It's a very relaxed get together for those with similar interests to hang out, there's no "club" or entry requirement, everyone is invited.

Please share below whether you'd be interested/joining us. I'll start a Wiki in due course.

I'm the same

I arrive back in Australia 11 days before that date and I have many things on leading up to Christmas. Sadly, I won't be able to make it. My next trip won't be until February.

Hoping there might be a date change. I agree with the venue, it's perfect.

I'll try to make it to the next CPT do! If you ever make it up to Joburg or PTA, let's meet for a drink.

Since the weather is likely going to be nice, might I suggest an outdoor / rooftop venue?

I wish I could make it there again. The last one was really good.

Have fun people!

I'll be most likely passing through DXB early December. But have to e back in CPT by the 8th, so unfortunately no good for me.
