When organising a Mumsnet meet up you should take the same basic precautions you would when meeting anyone from the internet - make sure you meet in a public place and that others know where you are going. You can also meet up with other mums on your Mumsnet Local page. Find your Local page here.

I love gay abandon

It's my favourite kind of abandon

So including Frank that makes 13 which happens to be a significant and lucky number for me. smile
Is it enough to go ahead?
And do we need some sort of financial commitment before cat books somewhere, so that no-one ends up out of pocket?

I was thinking we could book a VIP area in a bar in London bridge or southwark. They're mostly free at the weekends - just depends if people want drinks vouchers and fooood

Well I will would willy nilly ...

I've always liked him

<boom tish>

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Wed 31-Oct-12 20:10:17

More wine BIWI?

BigBroomstickBIWI Wed 31-Oct-12 20:27:32

blush

Should, of course, have said:

Well I would add willy nilly

I've always liked him

But when you have to explain your jokes something has clearly gone very wrong!

(No wine in the BIWI house this evening)

Go for the ROyal Oak, they are lovely. And have upstairs room that can be booked...

Will look now....

Please add moi. Looking forward to it. What was the name of the place where we were in September? Only problem was distance to the bar and smokies - there were stairs

<waves to cat>

Love the boots!

Waves back!!

Frank wants adding too but am on phone do will c and p list in the morning...

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Wed 31-Oct-12 23:07:01

Nooo, please let's not have stairs.
Apart from all the creaky joint, agonising shoes problems, it just splits the party even more.
Inside/outside is enough degrees of separation.

Ok - Small. On one level. Late licence. No stairs. Smoking place. Music and dancing???

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Wed 31-Oct-12 23:36:47

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, and yeah!
You're a star cat.
I did do a bit of looking around at places that would do Indian food when that seemed to be what everyone wanted.
Y'know, back when there were thousands coming. All a bit sedentary.
Does it have to be London Bridge/Southwark?

I think L Bridge is quite central for
most train lines without too much tube travel

Mmm Indian buffet would be good

SolidGoldYESBROKEMYSPACEBAR Wed 31-Oct-12 23:40:47

London Bridge is great, other nice places are: THe George, The Blue Anchor and The Old Thameside.

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Thu 01-Nov-12 00:48:11

The Traveldodgy that we stayed in in September is fully booked for 1st Dec!
Other hotels are saying 2-3 rooms left.
There is a hostel (yikeyfuckingyikes) with 6 or 8 bed dddddorms for £30 odd each.
That'll sort the wheat from the chaff grin.

BigBroomstickBIWI Thu 01-Nov-12 06:39:31

Sitting down opportunities too, please!

And yes to music, but only if it's not so loud that we can't talk.

Small. yes
On one level. yes
Late licence. double yes
No stairs. yes
Smoking place. yes please
Music and dancing. yes and yes
Curry buffet don't mind, never eat much when I'm drinking wink

Music - agree with BIWI, must be able to talk!!!
