This is for all non-EC or peripheral-EC topics. We all know how much we love talking about 'The Man' but sometimes we have other interests.

London Meet Up Saturday 9th April

Postby verbal gymnastics » Mon Feb 14, 2011 7:02 pm

Yes it's time to dig out those excuses for non-attendance :lol:

There is a London Board Meet Up on Saturday 9th April but as yet a venue has not been decided.

So far the attendees are

VG
John Foyle
Man Out Of Time
Sulky Lad and
So Lack.

It would be great to see you and international guests are very welcome (by international I mean anybody outside London and Dublin).

Red Shoes - you have an excuse this time!

As always, I am with you in spirits. But one of these days!

Note to self: Powerball currently $110 mil. Buy ticket. Scratch that. Buy WINNING ticket.

If you came over MDM it would be champagne and fine restaurants for you (and not the usual flat beer and drunken McDonalds).

Really disappointed that nobody's jumped in and bought me a ticket. :D

Too late now - I'll be down in Philadelphia with my son for the Red Bulls game.

Disappointed but not surprised?! :lol:

And how could you choose spending time with your son over spending time with us? Oh yes I forget...you've met me. Twice.

The meet up with the not-so-famous five will be at the Garrick Arms, Charing Cross Road starting at 1pm.

If anyone else wishes to come then feel free to PM any of us.

Alternatively look for the table with the coolest people in the pub, ask them and they'll probably direct you to the sad looking bunch in the corner (present company accepted :lol: ).

There will no doubt be free CDs and the usual regalia.

Hope to see you there.

As discussed in t'other thread, put me down as a definitely maybe for this. Nobody knows who I am but I received a personal invitation from Sulky Lad himself. A friend is in town but as the plan is probably to spend Saturday in various London hostelries anyway we will try and swing by.

I can make myself available if you need me at the last minute. Just need two first-class tickets for me and my wife, a five-star hotel for the weekend and some spending money.

No problem.

Just give me the receipts when you're at the pub and we'll pay you out of the kitty.

By the way, if we've moved to a different pub then send me a text and I'll let you know where we are.

Look forward to seeing you again.

I work on saturdays so I couldn't attend.
If you were in the Charing Cross rd you must have been withing walking distance of the National Portrait Gallery - did any of you pop in to see if the painting of Elvis with a scarf was on display?
Hope you had a good meet up

I didn't Harry but I was late there. Due to a sick child I also had to leave early.

I think we're going to look at a date in August.

What is your work finishing time as you could still join us.

Hello, on saturdays I work till half five. I'm in Pimlico so pubs in Charing Cross rd would be easy to get to. Let me know of any August events.
Is Elvis's birthday in August?

Sorry I couldn't make it. Lunch at a friend's house followed by various pre-arranged evening activities meant we didn't even set foot in a pub until Sunday. Shocking, I know.

Hope a good time was had by all.
