Right, so some voting (for dates), and some venue checking has been done, and Me n NappiesGalore have made executive organising planning decisions (based on us having little time and few options wink)

Saturday 22nd November

Dust Bar (website here)

Nearest Tube Station - Farringdon

It will be canapes, so if you want more food, eat beforehand.

The canapes are being chosen for us - they will be clearly labelled as meat, fish, veg and will allergy advice.

The music we can bring a dj, ipod with playlist set up or have music piped up (music is a very varied mix so should suit everyone). We can use any/all of those options.

Music is quieter at bar end, plus we will have volume control.

They have some fabulous sounding shots wink

Price will be £20 per head max. I will phone tomorrow to find out when they need final numbers for food etc, and when we have a more accurate numbers list, I can work out the right cost - it WILL NOT be more than £20. If we end up paying more than is needed, then obviously I will buy a new dress divide it up and refund people OR put it behind the bar - whatever you think is best.

How's it all sound?

Please sign up FOR THIS DATE AND VENUE here:

I'm confuddled- does this replace the one we've already put our names down for?

Flamesparrow Sun 07-Sep-08 18:38:25

could we refrain from calling it a meetup - xmas do, or shindig are perfectly fine.

Meetup always makes me feel like one of those saddo internet people who talks to complete strangers on tinternet and gets to know them fairly well, then arranges to meet them wearing a badge with their tinternet names on so they can recognise who each other are.

Oh shit - that is me shock
