Miramar Men - Where To Find Us Online

You've heard me talk about "Miramar Men" and may have wondered WTF - well here's where you can find us online. It's fathers, getting out of the house and having a beer, a yarn and usually a movie. "Man Movie", normally one that is unencumbered by plot but chock full of computer wizardry ... but not always, in fact if you say it's a man movie then it is. And it's usual for half to men to come for a beer and a yarn and then skip on the movie so if the movie de jour isn't your thing, sweet as, we'd still love to see you along.
