Re: London meet up - Saturday 26th November

Sorry, I am going to have to drop out of this now, my mother-in-law has decided to make a visit and I can only get one pass which I need for a friend's birthday drinks tonight :roll:

Re: London meet up Saturday 23rd July

This is TOMORROW. Back bar of the Water Poet, about 5 minutes from Liverpool St station, or Shoreditch High St station in the other direction if you're of an alternative persuasion. I can't stay too late so will be there early doors.

I will try to make the drinks but it might be a bit of a rush. Most likely see you in there.

Re: London meet up Saturday 23rd July

So I've booked an area at the Water Poet in the Back Bar (see map at http://www.waterpoet.co.uk/reservations/) from 2pm. Not outside, unfortunately, but it is right next to the garden area so maybe we can annex an outside area if we get there early enough.

Re: London meet up Saturday 23rd July

Unfortunately I couldn't book an outside area at the Water Poet, already fully booked for weekends all summer :shock: Not sure what to suggest. The Old George in Bethnal Green has a decent-sized beer garden. One stop away from Liverpool St on the Central line. Worth me making an enquiry? Even less c...

Re: London meet up Saturday 23rd July

Venue suggestions welcome! If we're looking for something more central this time then ignore this, but given that (a) last time it was said that Liverpool St station was convenient for a lot of people, and (b) it will be late July and a beer garden might be desirable, then the Water Poet just off B...

Re: Elvis (solo ) , The Palladium, London , Saturday May 14th 2016

Well, speaking from way over here in NYC, and based only on the setlist, this looks to have been the best of the London shows. Yes? Absolutely. Elvis even said along the lines of "For those of you who have come more than one night - and I thank you for that - you've come the right night"....

Re: Elvis & The Imposters play The Roundhouse, London July 6 2016

Really hope this is standing. Never seen seats in the Roundhouse, can they even put them in? The "£15-60" ticket price indication makes me suspicious.

Re: Elvis & The Imposters play Galway, Ireland, July 15 2016

I flew into Knock a couple of weeks ago, it's pretty remote, I have no idea how you'd get out of there without a car. I imagine Dublin is an easier option unless you want to rent a car at Knock.

What fresh hell is this. July 7 is my birthday as well, I got all excited for a minute (so I know that this will be the 9th anniversary of the similarly overpriced Tower of London gig! What has he got against 7th July?!)

Re: London meet up - Saturday 22nd August

Rumoured to be turning into flats. Bloody hell. If a pub in that location can't keep the developers at bay there's no hope.

Yes, though to be fair Lorne Michaels/SNL is a topic of conversation for Maron every single week. I'm surprised he didn't ask Obama if he ever auditioned :lol:

I'll try to get to the RFH for 6.45 but work has been pretty horrendous lately for getting out at a reasonable hour. Hopefully see you there.
