I might suggest doing this in Bloomsbury instead of Soho - close enough for Mr and Mrs Deems but also helpful for people who want to attend both events.

The pubs will be less mental as well, especially out of term time.

the revenges of alcohol are fierce and sometimes unassuageable.

bloomsbury a good idea. never quite sure about pubs round there. the lamb's more holborn-ish I guess.

i half-remember the plough is cancelled for acting the arsehole to some disabled ppl drinking there a couple months ago?

mark s, Saturday, 13 July 2019 12:27 (four months ago) link

yes, a woman with MS.

Fizzles, Saturday, 13 July 2019 12:30 (four months ago) link

The Lamb has an upstairs now which (as long as it isn't booked out) makes it a lot more FAP friendly.

Matt DC, Saturday, 13 July 2019 12:30 (four months ago) link

friday evening tho, what are the odds. and you’re right it’s pretty cramped for that sort of thing otherwise (tho i like it)

Fizzles, Saturday, 13 July 2019 12:32 (four months ago) link

Excellent. Flying out the day after for a long weekend in Berlin so this is perfect timing.

xyzzzz__, Saturday, 13 July 2019 13:36 (four months ago) link

let me know what ye decide and happy to take the consensus as lead

phil neville jacket (darraghmac), Saturday, 13 July 2019 14:05 (four months ago) link

We decided to hold it in east anglia in the pub round the corner from my flat

shhh / let peaceful like things (wins), Saturday, 13 July 2019 14:11 (four months ago) link

the good news about the silence following that is we'll all hear it when you drop us a pin

phil neville jacket (darraghmac), Saturday, 13 July 2019 14:27 (four months ago) link

lmao

shhh / let peaceful like things (wins), Saturday, 13 July 2019 14:40 (four months ago) link

Bloomsbury sounds like a plan. Will have a look online for locations but any recs welcome, obv.

im not sure im a big fan of the idea of asking ppl to choose between a fellas goin away party and having a pint with a known rogue tbh.

we'll be back in london regular enough like

phil neville jacket (darraghmac), Saturday, 20 July 2019 08:50 (four months ago) link

Depends where he's going.

Arthur Lowe & Love (Tom D.), Saturday, 20 July 2019 09:11 (four months ago) link

It's not a going-away party, it'll be fine.

Matt DC, Saturday, 20 July 2019 09:38 (four months ago) link

Ok someone has to know this area better than I do. Suggestions?

Benson and the Jets (ENBB), Monday, 29 July 2019 10:05 (four months ago) link

What time is this all kicking off, do we think?

imago, Monday, 29 July 2019 11:29 (four months ago) link

ex-ilxor pete's SOAS retirement thing (= the rival event)* starts at 4

*or potential double-event :D

mark s, Monday, 29 July 2019 11:42 (four months ago) link

like corbyn-sphinx im saying nothin

phil neville jacket (darraghmac), Monday, 29 July 2019 12:13 (four months ago) link

bloomsbury i could potentially do.

plax (ico), Monday, 29 July 2019 12:33 (four months ago) link

Read that as ex-ilxor pete's SAS retirement and thought either WOOF or OOF.

Arthur Lowe & Love (Tom D.), Monday, 29 July 2019 12:34 (four months ago) link

Opening gambit - The College Arms on Store Street, just off Tottenham Court Road. This has serviced a reasonable-sized gathering pretty well in the past although I can't remember if booking ahead was required.

Matt DC, Monday, 29 July 2019 12:52 (four months ago) link

Plax!! :)

Benson and the Jets (ENBB), Monday, 29 July 2019 13:24 (four months ago) link

How about Fitzroy Tavern, other side of TCR?

the pinefox, Monday, 29 July 2019 13:40 (four months ago) link

In my experience the Fitzroy is always unpleasantly busy on a Friday.

Matt DC, Monday, 29 July 2019 13:58 (four months ago) link

College Arms is fine imo. Wouldn't go near Charlotte Street - wot Matt DC said.

Fizzles, Monday, 29 July 2019 18:47 (four months ago) link

bring back that glasshouse stores beat imo. they've even got the bar billiards working again

imago, Monday, 29 July 2019 18:49 (four months ago) link

So college arms then?

Benson and the Jets (ENBB), Tuesday, 30 July 2019 09:44 (four months ago) link

yeah but at what time

i too have more than one social event that evening lol

imago, Tuesday, 30 July 2019 09:45 (four months ago) link

I’ll prob be there from 5:30 ish? Come whenever!

Benson and the Jets (ENBB), Tuesday, 30 July 2019 09:48 (four months ago) link

I just wrote and asked about booking a large table.

Benson and the Jets (ENBB), Tuesday, 30 July 2019 09:48 (four months ago) link

Lj does yr ilx mail work?

Benson and the Jets (ENBB), Tuesday, 30 July 2019 09:50 (four months ago) link

yes, should do! hmm, still working out the order of events..

imago, Tuesday, 30 July 2019 09:58 (four months ago) link

I'll no doubt be out for payday drinks w/ workmates beforehand so may be mildly pished when I get there.

Arthur Lowe & Love (Tom D.), Tuesday, 30 July 2019 09:59 (four months ago) link

We’ll allow that.

Benson and the Jets (ENBB), Tuesday, 30 July 2019 10:08 (four months ago) link

the boss lady has informed me that we'll be lunching first then back to hotel in docklands then back to wherever to meet internet ppl

thats my latest update

phil neville jacket (darraghmac), Tuesday, 30 July 2019 10:39 (four months ago) link

i will probably pop to pete's early doors (430ish?) as i am in town and footloose on friday
then over to college arms (which is where i had my pub-meet after day one of the conference i ran at birkback so that will be nice) 6ish?
and then when deems and y'alls are tired of my bullshit i will creep back to pete's do :)

mark s, Tuesday, 30 July 2019 10:42 (four months ago) link

we're skewing early. deems or whoever, if you want some company in the 4.30-7.30 slot we'll be around

imago, Tuesday, 30 July 2019 11:18 (four months ago) link

See you all then

xyzzzz__, Tuesday, 30 July 2019 13:14 (four months ago) link

FYI there’s a table for 10 reserved under my name. If you think you’ll get there early and don’t know my name shoot me an email at enbb28 at the g mail and I will inform you. I will be there between 5:30 and 6 but hopefully closer to 5:30.

Benson and the Jets (ENBB), Wednesday, 31 July 2019 11:34 (four months ago) link

I didn’t know how big a table to request but figured that if there are by more than that at one point some can stand etc

Benson and the Jets (ENBB), Wednesday, 31 July 2019 11:36 (four months ago) link

we'll hardly get ten tbh

phil neville jacket (darraghmac), Wednesday, 31 July 2019 11:47 (four months ago) link

phil neville jacket (darraghmac), Wednesday, 31 July 2019 11:47 (four months ago) link

Oh stop it. There were def 10 ppl at both of the last ones!!

Benson and the Jets (ENBB), Wednesday, 31 July 2019 11:52 (four months ago) link

mark s, Wednesday, 31 July 2019 11:55 (four months ago) link

i don’t know what time or state i’ll be in when i get there, but be there i will.

Fizzles, Wednesday, 31 July 2019 15:49 (four months ago) link

phil neville jacket (darraghmac), Wednesday, 31 July 2019 16:07 (four months ago) link

Myself and/or SV will come some time...eventually so you might crack ten if that fact doesn’t put off all the regulars.

gyac, Wednesday, 31 July 2019 16:09 (four months ago) link

thats the thing isnt it, its like forming a functioning govt rather than just counting the voters rly
