Riiiight. Just seen this.

I am well overdue a MN meet up.

I will rally some of the troops who I know were up for Brighton....

Fantastic smile

What was the restaurant like last time MABs? Worth rebooking this time? Or do we need to find another restaurant? IIRC that had veggie and gluten free stuff available?

I'm happy to book in my name again (assuming that I don't drop out last minute again!) But I'm shite at rounding up everybody so would need people diverted here to let me know that they are coming smile Possibly because I can never remember usernames or have everybody on my FB blush

Nice restaurant but they defo wanted us out by time we Left! Also upstairs table bit hardfor some with prams. But food good

Ah, the feeling if being rushed sad you'd think they would factor in that big tables stay for a while! We used to at the place I worked in.

Pinnochios might be back up by then, that was a suggestion last time. Or another one.

MABS Sun 07-Apr-13 11:15:53

Fat Leo?

That looks good, and they do gnocchi grin

MABS Sun 07-Apr-13 12:18:31

What date? Fly home late tonight sad

char1eston Sun 07-Apr-13 12:50:27

I'm going to keep an eye on this if it's ok. Are you up new peeps tagging along?

18th is best for me, Boob has said the 18th is good for her too smile

Enjoy your flight! You'll be back out there again in no time I'm sure ;) Hows DS? Did he enjoy the holiday?

char1eston Always happy for new people to come along smile

I shall add now that we generally don't have kids there, babes in arms are fine but we do tend to get a bit loud and there is wine involved wink

catinboots Sun 07-Apr-13 14:45:28

Yeah!!!! Sounds fun. I'm from Kent btw.

Has anyone seen BewitchedBotheredBewildered around lately?

catinboots Sun 07-Apr-13 14:45:57

Is this a day or a night thang?

Day catinboots smile Usually meet around 1pm and it goes on until the last drunkards leave wink

StickEmUpPunk Mon 08-Apr-13 21:23:20

If only i was brave enough to come ....!

Be brave StickEm! They are great fun smile

StickEmUpPunk Tue 09-Apr-13 07:52:58

Are there pre dinner drinks that would be good to come to ...?

We usually meet at the restaurant, I made sure that I was one of the first there on my first meet, in fact every meet I've been too! I'm happy to meet a little earlier for a drunk or two though smile

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Tue 09-Apr-13 10:30:46

Sounds good. Agree with MABS about Al Duomo where we went last time.
Ground floor would be better, I think Donatello is owned by the same people, in the Lanes just below Brighton Square. Or the Dorset Street Bar on the corner of Gardner St. is great.
Hi Cat, I've been around but invisible mostly!

StickEmUpPunk Tue 09-Apr-13 12:26:21

Dorset would be well nice. I love it in there and the lanes.
I think I'll come for a drink.

Do I have to turn up with a rose in the button hole wink or maybe my leopard scarf LOL

Sunnywithshowers Tue 09-Apr-13 23:15:36

I'm not far from Brighton, would be great to come along. smile

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Wed 10-Apr-13 00:12:26

StickEmUp, I've still got my atrocious cunt badge from September if that would help? Impressive capitalisation in your NN by the way.
Hope you can Sunny smile

Sunnywithshowers Wed 10-Apr-13 00:17:39

18th is good for me smile and would love to come along for pre-dinner drinks too

MABS Wed 10-Apr-13 07:57:28

love to see you all, also love The Dorset but my concern would be how long we can sit there in truth. It does get very busy as quite small and pretty noisy. Our last lunch was 4 hours and I just not sure they wouldn't hurry us out after we eaten a bit. But i happy to go there if that was others want, but think possibly with a group somewhere bigger may be a bit easier, but feel free to ignore me!

Love to see you again BBB x

StickEmUpPunk Wed 10-Apr-13 09:38:28

Is this 18th May? If so I'm up for it with my cunt badge, MN scarf with bells on.

You're right about the Dorset. It's pretty rammed most of the time and does feel like a get in get out type of place.
I quite like the Donatello 'chain'.

El Mexicano is nice as well, apparently.

Margeritas all round ha (not me I dont drink)
