Just been talking to a few MNers today about a meetup (you know who you are!). Would anyone fancy a few drinks and a meal one night in Cheltenham, and afterwards dancing round our handbags in the Prom Club?

(I am joking about the Prom Club grin)

Oh, that didn't work, wanted to say 'Gloucester' in Italics, now it just looks like its got ears blush

GetOrf Fri 08-Feb-13 17:45:32

Blossoms is lovely - it's a really good chinese.

I went out out in Gloucester once (eastgate street) - SCARY. Like Kavos.

foxache Fri 08-Feb-13 18:16:02

Eastgate Street's always been a bit like that, young, clubby and scary. There used to be some great pubs and venues in Gloucester, I'm not sure where I'd go now.

21 Club's ok, I'm a bit short for it though, and my make-up's usually fallen off by the time I reach there.

Ha ha I once shouted at a random man in the prim club telling g him to stop letching at me and did I look like normal prom club fodder. It turned out to be dh's sergeant who was trying to say hello blush
I don't mind glos but will mean buses etc. I have a camper van maybe we could set it up in quays car park it sleeps four. We could have a lovely cuppa in the morning. Ha ha ha

And if anyone else is interested please do join in.

Galena Mon 18-Feb-13 15:17:34

Sounds great! (Sorry, I lost this thread for a while...)

Yep, count me in as long as it's not dancing round our handbags in some club or other...

GetOrf Mon 18-Feb-13 15:21:52

I think dinner first and then a few naice bars, and then if we want to behave disgracefully dance we can decide on the night.

Anyone got any suggestions for somewhere to eat? What does everyone like? I am a gannet and eat anything.

Galena Mon 18-Feb-13 15:26:43

Galena Mon 18-Feb-13 15:27:16

Er... deja vu sorry! Couldn't remember if I'd posted 'Post'!

I eat anything too...

foxache Mon 18-Feb-13 19:30:52

Great for me, are there any nice pubs with food? The Strand? I think CherryMonster is hoping to come too, I'll pm her.

PatTheHammer Mon 18-Feb-13 20:16:34

I like these places in Chelt:
La Tasca
Thai Emerald
Ruby Chinese in Tivoli
One of the Curry houses on bath road.......Indus?
The Vinings pub does Thai food
A Turkish restaurant near where the old cinema was (no idea if its still there).
Bar and Wok on lower high street.
Morans on bath road

Sorry, doesn't narrow it down much!!!

rugbychick Mon 18-Feb-13 20:31:52

I'm away that weekend (for my dad's 70th). If you organise another night out, count me in!

ledkr Mon 18-Feb-13 21:20:18

Me too. I hardly ever do anything theses days and I'm doing two things over that weekend <sad little face> you all go on and have fun without me you fuckers

SizzleSazz Mon 18-Feb-13 21:24:46

Ooh, i might well be able to do the 9th. First free weekend we have so will have to sweet talk DH.

DollyTwat Mon 18-Feb-13 21:28:51

Ledkr you must come

Cancel your other plans, we are more important

I'm fine with any of the places Pat said. LaTasca is great for loads of good that keeps on coming.
Getorf YOU decide

ledkr Mon 18-Feb-13 21:42:35

I think you are all bastards going without me.
I'm going to watch the thread and then make hoax calls to your restaurant.
Let me see what I can jiggle about ill come back tomorrow and let you know.

DollyTwat Mon 18-Feb-13 21:46:56

That's more like it
You know you'd rather come out with us

ledkr Mon 18-Feb-13 22:02:39

Tis important stuff tho. Ill text you.

GetOrf Tue 19-Feb-13 08:34:43

Can I be an awkward fucker as well?

I have got to be in london the friday before and the monday after the 9th and was thinking of staying at my aunt's in London to save stupid travel arrangements. Would it be really awkward to move the date at this stage? What about the week after? Then ledkr and rugbychick could come as well. What does everyone think? Or does this scupper other people's plans?

Let's all go to the Montpellier wine bar and act like PONCES!

ledkr Tue 19-Feb-13 08:39:08

Dolly likes the wine bar getorf she finks she's proper posh n all that.
Ps don't mention the beehive (she's obsessed) I think we may be banned as we rang them to complain they were miserable (whilst we were in there) blush

foxache Tue 19-Feb-13 11:31:47

I'm fine with moving the date, but can't do the 16th I'm afraid, as it's something important, ds related. Will it still be race week then?
Btw, all places suggested by Pat sound great, I only know Bar and Wok and vinings and they're both really nice. Anywhere with big tables and booze!

Galena Tue 19-Feb-13 12:52:06

The festival is 12th-15th, so we might not want to do the 16th... I can't do the week after that (23rd) as I'm away, or the 30th or the 6th April... blush Wow! It almost sounds like I have a social life!
