The next Weblogger Meetup is at the Sahara Cafe, for the third time in the past four months. Each of those months, it was the only place in the CBD in the voting options; the others were places in Brunswick and Prahran, and even a network-gaming centre somewhere in Lilydale or wherever; but none of the other Melbourne venues (Lounge Downstairs, Cookie, Troika, &c.) got a look in. (Last month, people voted for the Comfortable Chair in Brunswick; only two people turned up to that one.) Are the Sahara proprietors paying meetup.com for exclusive listings or something?
