First or second Saturday in December, 3rd or 10th?
We just need to hear from twentythreedom as I know he is doing some DJing and Saturday might not be a good night. 3rd would be better I think as Christmas will be starting by 10th.
I think I can do either night
10th might not be possible for me now, so the 3rd sounds good
3rd is good for me, just after payday too.
Looks like we have a date and a location, just need to decide on a starting place and a time.
I'd like to veto the bloody awful Wetherspoons which my friend keeps dragging me to - there has to be something better than this. The Lord Nelson maybe? renegadechicken *Miss Daisy* ?
Yeah the Wetherspoons is shit. I'm ashamed to say I've been refused service in there for being too drunk. I didn't even think that was possible.
The stable down the end is nice for cider lovers.
Got thrown out of the lord nelson last time I was in there about 4 months ago for big an obnoxious drunk.......
But 3rd is great for me...I'll pester miss daisy tomorrow at work
Better check which pubs she is barred from before we finally set a venue...
Are you sure you want the locals to turn up for this one?
You don't have time - just list the ones she's allowed in
You are in charge of this twentythreedom so you now have to start a separate thread with the date in the title and create great excitement around the event by offering to buy everyone a beer. Or something.
I was born in Bournemouth Dorset when Bournemouth, was in Bournemouth (according to my birth certificate).
They also wrote my middle name as 'fames' instead of James.
What??! I'm in charge of Weymouth meet next year I thought Can I delegate
The Stable looks a bit trendy for an urban meet up. How about the Portsmouth Hoy? It has good reviews and is supposed to look like a ship inside. Actually it doesn't matter much if we are pub crawling, we just need a place to start.
Right, are we doing this? Looby renegadechicken chainsawjob *Miss Daisy* MrSki ? Otherwise me and twentythreedom will have to rope in some random locals for the traditional 'urbanites drunk in a pub' shot.
7:30 next Saturday 3rd December in the Portsmouth Hoy in Poole.
I will also endeavour to bring along my Syrian refugee lodger, if he can escape from his job in Poundland in time.
Yes, I'm up for it. Will see if ex-urb madamv is free.
Count me in
Boudicca is there any chance of a bed for the night if needed?
Yes, of course, although I do have paying guests in one of my rooms so if you are drunk, you will need to be QUIETLY drunk...
I'd love to see her again if she is free.
You are welcome to stay too chainsawjob. If so, twentythreedom can stay in the sewing room and you can have the posh room upstairs.
If he's being a loud drunk, we have a spare room. I'll just have to explain to Mr Looby why I'm bringing someone from the internet home.
My Syrian lodger is very excited to be meeting a group of random people from the internet.
I have explained that you have form for bad behaviour but he is still determined to come.
Does he drink?
I don't think so, but he's very happy to be going to an 'typical English' social gathering in the pub.
I'm sure it'll be fine. What could possibly go wrong?
How good is his English BTW?
Worry not, he spent 6 months in the UK in his 20s and used to work as a tour guide across the Middle East & Turkey. He is smart, speaks good English and is generally sociable and very good company. That said, he has had a pretty tough time here and really does need a bit of warmth & kindness.
