Well someone had to start the new thread.

Actually if I had eaten more veggies I might have warded off the ill. He knew his onions, that bossy man

I did like Platform, I took one of their Christmas menus and said to my colleagues LOOK this is a very trendy bar in London where you can get a nice Christmas Lunch for 20 quid and yet we are having to fork out 35 quid for a Christmas lunch in some jumped up, serviette and doily PROVINCIAL twat restaurant in Swindon.

Sooo- how does the name thing work, does everyone answer to MN name only?

GetOrfAKAMrsUsainBolt Thu 04-Oct-12 12:46:35

Everyone wears badges with their MN names on, and we find out each other's real names, but if you are like me you will forget in 0.67 nanoseconds and just go by MN names generally.

HappyHippyChick Thu 04-Oct-12 12:50:28

I would love to come, couldn't make the last one as it was my sisters bday.

Pagwatch Thu 04-Oct-12 12:51:18

Mn names mostly. My brain would explode otherwise.

Hullygully Thu 04-Oct-12 12:51:33

Knid said she'd do the list

where is that slacker?

BrainSurgeon Thu 04-Oct-12 12:58:21

1st December is the National Day of my home country so I can't come.


OK I'll come and buy everyone a drinnk in honour of my country



Hullygully Thu 04-Oct-12 12:59:56

Oh we have to do shots, Brian

Will look for places that have the following then:

1. Squishy sofas for the lazy arsed sitter downers of us.
2. Late licence
3. Own space
4. Louder music later on for them who wish to dance/make fools of themselves
5. Food? Smaller canapés do you think - 6-8 each, it seems that lots eat beforehand and start drinking, so perhaps just a few nibbles. Or, go the other way and actually have some kind of supper - perhaps a couple of curries/pots of chili sin/con carne? Or what?

Pistey it is actual law that you have to come and test places. Did you not know that?

BrainSurgeon Thu 04-Oct-12 13:10:17

Food wise, I reckon an early start of the do, with some nibbles (crisps and such) for those who start drinking early and a decent meal later on - don't mind what food.

This way we also spend a bit more time together, and get more food / drinks in!

Agrees with brainsurgeon - a compromise over fewer pre meet-up drinks and an earlier start. It feels like a continuation of Saturday which was over all too soon. That's a compliment to all who organised and all who were present.

Lovely to read the thread.

Hullygully Thu 04-Oct-12 13:21:54

Good idea, Brian.

Drinks and nibbles and then pots of curry

yum yum yum

BerryLellow Thu 04-Oct-12 13:22:04

I want to come to this one, couldn't make last weekend. Is there a list?

I'm happy with any venue - Dancing or sitting down and getting very drunk is all good with me.

RatherBeOnThePiste Thu 04-Oct-12 13:23:29

Smashing Frank [ThumbsUp]

I love curry nearly as much as gin...

GetOrfAKAMrsUsainBolt Thu 04-Oct-12 13:24:35

It is nice to read that people are enthusiastic for another meet up so soon isn't it, married.

It was over too soon, which is quite unusual really as it was a long night, we had our pre meet up at just gone half 5.

GetOrfAKAMrsUsainBolt Thu 04-Oct-12 13:26:03

Curry is a great idea.

However the only problem with having a sit down dinner like a Rotary Club dinner dance is that you can't mingle around - the great bit about Saturday was having the dinner egg and chips for me classy and then the drinks party bit where everyone just wandered about speaking to people in random fashion.

Hullygully Thu 04-Oct-12 13:26:59

But you can go and get your curry and then wander about?

bigTillyMint Thu 04-Oct-12 13:28:26

GetOrf Southwark is the best borough - I'm sure Mintyy will agree!

needanswers Thu 04-Oct-12 13:28:48

Curry buffet mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

RatherBeOnThePiste Thu 04-Oct-12 13:28:56

I nearly posted about curry on Justine and Helen's thread...

Pre curry drinks starting as early as folk want
More drinks
Stay at a Traveldodgy as tis tradition but one that has a 24 hour bar....

Sleep for about an hour


needanswers Thu 04-Oct-12 13:29:37

If it's not too far from victoria that would be spiffing too - so I can get home smile

Shodan Thu 04-Oct-12 13:31:40

I might come to the next one just to meet Hully, as she didn't appear to be on my route from the food to the bar/smoking area and back.

Could I put in a plea for the bar to be on the same floor as the talky bit, next time? So tiring, all those stairs, esp. when having to Boris Bike it back to the hotel...

Hullygully Thu 04-Oct-12 13:34:02

I hardly met anyone.

I don't know why.
