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

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

five people with a pair of socks each maybe wut wut

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

deems can stand

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

... outside in the street.

How to Book Michael Fish (Tom D.), Wednesday, 31 July 2019 12:14 (four months ago) link

i was expecting him to greet FAP attendees at the door as they arrived?

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

thats my approx schedule and aim also tbh

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

phil neville jacket (darraghmac), Wednesday, 31 July 2019 16:13 (four months ago) link

xpost - yay would love to meet you both!

Benson and the Jets (ENBB), Wednesday, 31 July 2019 19:22 (four months ago) link

the question of what a functioning ilx government would look like has been preoccupying me for a short while now.

Fizzles, Wednesday, 31 July 2019 19:27 (four months ago) link

but agreed a darraghfap is unlikely to deliver it.

Fizzles, Wednesday, 31 July 2019 19:28 (four months ago) link

I will be along early doors and probably heading to Petefest after that. Excited about being able to argue about the merits of Juan Foyth in person.

xps to ENBB, yes, same! Hopefully next time 🤞🏻

gyac, Wednesday, 31 July 2019 20:00 (four months ago) link

now confused as to gyac/MR seamus milne attendance

phil neville jacket (darraghmac), Wednesday, 31 July 2019 20:46 (four months ago) link

I’m excited! Also FYI today is Roberto S’s birthday and we’re going out this evening. We are old so two nights out is a big deal which is all to say we must really like you guys. Also, you can wish him a HB tomorrow!

Benson and the Jets (ENBB), Thursday, 1 August 2019 13:26 (four months ago) link

Not seen RS post in a while iirc? Hope he's alright! (him being alright might be why he doesn't post as often?) Not at the FAP but HB to him regardless.

Le Bateau Ivre, Thursday, 1 August 2019 14:19 (four months ago) link

He’s fine. :)

Benson and the Jets (ENBB), Thursday, 1 August 2019 15:18 (four months ago) link

now skewing earlier, depending on whether it looks more or less feasible to dash to the hotel before lunch.

looking fwd to seeing ye all, unless you are an undeclared lurker

that has to have happened, right? hovering next to faps, casually looking the other way all night?

sneaky fuckers. ill be watching for ye.

phil neville jacket (darraghmac), Thursday, 1 August 2019 21:46 (four months ago) link

you won’t see me.

Fizzles, Thursday, 1 August 2019 21:51 (four months ago) link

I hope to attend the FAP.

If I arrive at the College Arms at, say, 7pm - will I find ilx people like ENBB and Fizzles?

the pinefox, Friday, 2 August 2019 09:51 (four months ago) link

They'll be under a table somewhere.
