BwB London Meetup - Weds 28th December 2016

Recommended Posts

I'd say the Penderel's Oak is fine, but I always do. If we agree it will be in the centre then that would be our default location, but I am happy to book somewhere else for a change if we have a good number of attendees.

If we did karaoke, would anyone be interested in that?

I sincerely doubt I'll have money to get sufficiently drunk to reach this stage :)

Ah but the karaoke (and cheap it is, too) is 'bring your own booze'...

Anyway, that would be afterwards, so post if you're coming to the main gathering and I'll sort out a venue this week!

For a venue, I suggest:

The Phoenix

https://www.phoenixcavendishsquare.co.uk/

or:

The Royal George

https://www.theroyalgeorgewc2.co.uk/

Both have good beer and good spaces we can use. Any preferences? I'll book one or the other by the end of the week.

From a purely practical point of view, in that I'll likely be eating at the venue before going straight on to the theatre, I prefer the look of The Royal George's menu. :D But I shall go with the majority.

I have booked The Royal George from 3pm on 28th! It won't be busy. We will have a table from which we can expand as necessary.

ETA: is 3pm the right time?

I can come in a bit earlier than that, dependingon who's about?

I still haven't worked out how I'm going to get there though. Replacement buses are looking awful, regular buses are slow and going via Stansted is obscenely expensive. Will pin that down in a day or two.

I land in London at 12:40 if there are no delays on the road, so I'll be about. I can't check in until 3pm, annoyingly enough. Thought it was 2, but nope, it's 3, so at some point I will have to pop back to the hotel, chck in and dump my bag and then come back, but can certainly be around earlier if other's will be.

Excellent. I may try to get in earlier to maximise shenanigans :)

I couldn't find confirmation if it's on this week, but Wednesday nights at the Royal George are apparently Ukulele Night!

Well then depending on whether it's great or terrible, we can join in or escape it :-p I suspect this would be going on in the basement. For now, we're upstairs. I am unsure what time I'll arrive but there's no reason it can't be earlier than 3pm.

Having worked out the horrible rail schedule, I'll probably take off around 11pm. Leaving after that will mean I don't get home to almost 4am :P

So, got about an hours sleep last night and woke up with the cold from hell. I think I'll be sitting this one out :(

So very pissed off, really wanted to see the crew again!

Come along anyway!

I'll get there a little past 3pm if I hurry.

I'm afraid it looks like I've also succumbed to the plague. And I can't even blame Pebble.

Next time though!
