This Monday, early evening?

jon (jon), Thursday, 19 September 2002 10:59 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Hmmm Monday, an untried day for FAP action. If it's central I can do it but not early.

Tom (Groke), Thursday, 19 September 2002 11:01 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

What Tom said, and I'll likely slink away before long because I am a sick man.

Tim (Tim), Thursday, 19 September 2002 11:02 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

i think so, i want to celebrate my new house (as i'm doing tonite, tomorrow night, and sunday night)

gareth (gareth), Thursday, 19 September 2002 11:03 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Are you really allowing an unsteered FAP to go ahead??????

I'm not quite mentalist to come back from Manchester after less than 24 hours there.

Graham (graham), Thursday, 19 September 2002 11:07 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Well I'm well up for this. I'm meeting my new boss re 'please pay me off I don't want to work for you' that afternoon and will vcery ready for a pint in the evening. The prospect of an an e-blind date such as this (I'm an FAP virgin) will provide a nice silver lining to the day.

Later is fine, as long as I can get a train out of Paddington before the Wiltshire Curfew.

And I'll be on Regent St so anywhere West End would be great. If it were less than 10 minutes walk from the Bakerloo line it would maximise my drinking time. But I'm a fast walker.

jon (jon), Thursday, 19 September 2002 11:13 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

great idea. i will be SINGING though, so no, probs not

Alan (Alan), Thursday, 19 September 2002 11:26 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Hmm, well you know I frown upon such unsteered events but I might be able to squeeze a couple of beers in next Monday. I think the steering committee should pickj the pub though. But ho - something new?

Pete (Pete), Thursday, 19 September 2002 12:17 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Steering Commttee? Steered/Unsteered?

There's more to this than I thought... it was just an e-whim, honest.

Well, whoever chooses make it nearish Bakerloo Line (Oxford Circus/Picc Circus) and I'll be there.

What happens next? Do the minutes of the meeting get minuted? Does someone review the minutes of the lsat meeting? Can I doodle while pretending to look intelligently interested?

i caddot cob i'b afraid cos i've got dis terrible cold!

katie (katie), Thursday, 19 September 2002 13:01 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

mmmm.... somewhere new...

Tim (Tim), Thursday, 19 September 2002 13:02 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

The only pub I know round there is the place we all drink in at work. it's called the Windmill and is on a side road parrallel to Regent St on the W side.

But I'm happy to try somewwhere new (and may not be allowed to make suggestions...)

jon (jon), Thursday, 19 September 2002 13:10 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

I'm on for this, but won't stay late unless there is a tube strike the next day, in which case I shall be taking that day off.

Martin Skidmore (Martin Skidmore), Thursday, 19 September 2002 16:56 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Ok everyone, who's going to fix a pub?

I won't have web access on Monday, and would hate to miss out, having made the suggestion.

jon (jon), Friday, 20 September 2002 07:13 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Never drinking again. My life is a RUIN this morning. I woke up in tights, dress and jacket with handbag still on arm. I feel sick, Never drinking again.

Anna (Anna), Friday, 20 September 2002 09:01 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Any ideas anyone? Horse and Groom on Great Portland Street? I can't make any claims for its quality because I haven't been there since 1989. But fancyapint.com gives it one pint out of five so it can't be all bad...

http://www.fancyapint.com/thepubs/pub30.htm

I don't know why I'm suggesting Sam Smiths pubs when it doesn't matter to me because I'm tragically off the booze again. Sob.

Tim (Tim), Friday, 20 September 2002 09:26 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

''I feel sick, Never drinking again.''

yes...sure you aren't. a pint of coke for you in future then.

Julio Desouza (jdesouza), Friday, 20 September 2002 09:31 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

My termini are Notting Hill Gate and M.Arch so somewhere on the central line would be best for me.

Tom (Groke), Friday, 20 September 2002 09:35 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

ditto, and its the braindance brockup tonite. oh, why do i do it?

gareth (gareth), Friday, 20 September 2002 09:57 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Central Line and Bakerloo Line? Sounds like Oxford Circus:

OK Mark why don't we make Monday our meet-up...especially as I think celebrations are in order heh :-) don't forget to bring the NLRs!

Marcello Carlin, Friday, 20 September 2002 11:15 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

OK Marcello good idea.

mark s (mark s), Friday, 20 September 2002 11:16 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Tim's link says to me:

Ship is good, a little far

Dover Castle looks GREAT - is it hard to find?

Windmill is good too - I know it though, on the other hand you don't

Argyll Arms easy peasy to find and meet at, bar probably unreachable. No fun.

Someone plump for one? How do I recognise you good people?

jon (jon), Friday, 20 September 2002 11:27 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

ILXers are easy to spot, trust your senses.

mark s (mark s), Friday, 20 September 2002 11:30 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

I suspect the Dover Castle may be a little small for a FAP, but that's always my worry and it's never that much of a problem.

Tim (Tim), Friday, 20 September 2002 11:37 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

I'm off until Monday now, so I look forward to seeing the venue as chosen by t'Committee.

Tim (Tim), Friday, 20 September 2002 11:51 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

sorry can't do it as I'm having time off (so the last thing to do would be to go to London, even if it is to mett you all). but from monday 30th I'm back so practically any weekday evening from then would be good.

anyway, have fun!

Julio Desouza (jdesouza), Friday, 20 September 2002 12:00 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

I'm off too - but Tim H has kindly emailed me a contact phone number so if I don't get to the web I can still find all of you.

jon (jon), Friday, 20 September 2002 14:34 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

I say the WIndmill. What does everyone else say?

Pete (Pete), Friday, 20 September 2002 14:39 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Hic!

Sarah (starry), Friday, 20 September 2002 14:41 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

I say let's settle on one, and I'm perfectly happy with The Windmill. I'll be there pretty early, but as the link says it is patronised by office workers and I will be in a suit and tie, it might not be ideal for Jon to try to spot me. There is a pic on my profile here, though, if that helps.

Martin Skidmore (Martin Skidmore), Friday, 20 September 2002 17:04 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

I'm reviving this so we don't lose it. Are we all okay with the Windmill?

Martin Skidmore (Martin Skidmore), Saturday, 21 September 2002 18:22 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

fine by me. Pic noted. some say 'can't do early', some say 'cant do late'. I guess even 'early' in London is not very early - is 6/6.30ish a good place to start?

jon (jon), Sunday, 22 September 2002 07:22 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

Looks like I might be on for his now. Late-ish doors for me 7.30/8.00 ish. Looking forward to it!!

Dr. C (Dr. C), Sunday, 22 September 2002 09:39 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

I'll be there around six, Jon.

Martin Skidmore (Martin Skidmore), Sunday, 22 September 2002 11:09 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

I'm possible a sevenish man. I have to introduce a screening of The Royal Tenebaums first. I shall be using the line "Mark S laughed non-stop and so di Dr Vick". Poor overseas students.

Pete (Pete), Sunday, 22 September 2002 12:54 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

I laughed lots too Pete, if you want to build a long list of people who liked it. And relatively new poster hereabouts Tim Bateman has a sister very like Margot! (Not adopted, however.)

Boss is not in today so I can escape in time for the full revelry I hope.

And my meeting tomorrow has been cancelled so I can have a hangover without fear.

Tom (Groke), Monday, 23 September 2002 08:45 (sixteen years ago) Permalink

so, is it the windmill then? i have decided i can make it, so i shall be there sometimes around 8.05

deemsthelarker (darraghmac), Friday, 3 May 2019 15:32 (one month ago) Permalink

The one with DJ Martian was in the BPNS so you'd need to have been north of Preston (possibly Carlisle) for Mono to be easier to get to.

Tim, Friday, 3 May 2019 15:44 (one month ago) Permalink

If we're not allowed to FD about the location of future FAPS any more I insist on being allowed to FD about the location of past FAPs.

Tim, Friday, 3 May 2019 15:45 (one month ago) Permalink

There was one so far north I’ve forgotten the name of the park which I remember taking an absolute age to get home from, but I think the literal concrete journey time is a red herring here what matters is we should go to mono

stet, Friday, 3 May 2019 16:37 (one month ago) Permalink

"Park"?

If you got yourself involved in some drinking outside business that would be none of my concern and certainly outwith the remit of this thread.

Tim, Friday, 3 May 2019 16:46 (one month ago) Permalink

What’s this mono place and does it serve beer

El Tomboto, Sunday, 5 May 2019 02:22 (one month ago) Permalink

It's a record shop in Scotland. So, yes.

I'm going to grab something to eat first (IIRC the food at Sam Smiths places is either not-good or just crisps) so I'll likely be there around the same time.

Things that are good at Sam Smith’s pubs - architecture

Things that are not good at Sam Smith’s pubs - beer, food

Unexpected nostalgia-suffused benefit of this venue: Ed complaining about Sam Smiths, even from halfway round the world. Sad you couldn't fit in an old socks reference, Ed.

So great to see everyone again! Fueled in my case by Sam Smiths Extra Stout -- which is excellent, and any antipodean opinions on the topic are henceforth declared redundant -- a lot of ground was covered, including self-publishing, printing sets, neighbours, freelancing, typesetting, typefaces, journals, journalism, prog rock, Factory Records, podcasts, weddings, Bill Heine his shark and his cinemas, gullible housemates, Boston, Washington, Hackney, the military, the Tower of London, fishmongers, absent friends, internet factions, past FAPs, ILX history, football clubs and their ownership, cider (with or without sherry)...and...pause for breath, they were just the things I remember / heard.

Is there a name for the table on a table thing in the Blue Posts? You know, the little round table that's on a round table? Tiered table, if you will.

But anyway, where was Lou15 Jagg3r?

Grandpont Genie, Friday, 10 May 2019 12:53 (one month ago) Permalink
