Behind The People

I created Meet The People because I do believe, and have always believed, that people should be at the essence of everything we do. No more tired arse reviews about some bar and how great their recycled tractor stools are. I’m sure they’re great to some degree and probably overpriced, but no one really cares, do they? What we care about is filling those stools with interesting characters and understanding a little bit more about them. Where they came from, what cheese they like, why the f&ck they’re wearing their pants backwards?

We go to bars, restaurants, establishments to actually meet people, whether it’s for a short time, long time or a good time. That’s what this site is for; to unveil the intricacies that are more than just awards, titles and what are bound to become dusty trophies.

Naturally, you must be wondering who the social samaritan is behind all these haha’s and general good times. Who is this person answering all my important questions in life like “is it acceptable to order two drinks for yourself at once?”

Well the answer is me, Brittany, and yes you’ve got two hands so you may as well use them.

I like to think of myself as a storyteller, particularly once I’ve had a few drinks. I enjoy short walks to the bar and prefer everything to come with a pop culture reference. I’ve spent 8 years as a journalist, editor, copywriter and travelling layabout.

I’m not qualified to do any of this, I just decided to do it. But just for the sceptics, I have interned and worked for Gourmet Traveller, Peats Ridge Music Festival, Drinks World Asia, Rare Birds and Nine Network Australia. I’ve written for the likes of Elite Daily, Urban List, Sydney Morning Herald, Broadsheet, Concrete Playground, Tracks Magazine, Surfing Life Magazine among others. I have a strong inclination towards spontaneous tropical getaways because… young and free. I do not dance like nobody’s watching. My opinions are sometimes tequila’s.

But enough about me, this is about the people and I’m just here to introduce you to them.
