PestoSunnyissimos Tue 22-Apr-14 09:03:10

Thank you oh lovely local Mners for thinking of me smile

Thank you!

MABS Tue 22-Apr-14 12:30:41

MyGastIsFlabbered Tue 22-Apr-14 13:07:33

Do all the usual suspects know about it?

MABS Tue 22-Apr-14 13:13:39

I text any I have numbers for x

SunshineBossaNova Tue 22-Apr-14 13:19:55

Mabs I'll send you my number. HelsBels already has it, but I don't think you do.

[Formerly chocolatesaltyballs, btw]

ConfusedPixie Tue 22-Apr-14 15:02:07

I don't know if the usuals do know tbh. Doreen you can message people on here on theif old names and Mn will make sure that they get it , pretty certain I was told that by mnhq anyways!

SunshineBossaNova Tue 22-Apr-14 15:35:46

Doreen messaged me, I'm a usual but serial namechanger. Will ping you my RL name.

ConfusedPixie Tue 22-Apr-14 19:08:20

I know who you are Sunshine, though this name is the only one I know you by! grin

I should have said that I didn't know if many of the usuals knew, I was distracted by a toddler at work! Rifling through the cupboards and eating dog food. Again hmm grin

DoreensEatingHerSoreen Tue 22-Apr-14 20:07:14

I PMd the following:
Local ed brighton
Fuzz pig
Melody angel

And I facebooked

Northern monkey

And I also FB messaged someone who's MN name I totally forgot but Pixie Hells and MABS you are all friends with her too and her profile pic is a cat! (Apologies if you're reading this - don't like to use RL names on here without permission grin)

ConfusedPixie Tue 22-Apr-14 20:17:12

Sunshine is catlady on FB smile

Good work Doreen! grin

DoreensEatingHerSoreen Tue 22-Apr-14 20:18:03

As for responses, here's where we're at so far:


Helish (have PMd to confirm)





Have you heard from anyone else MABS?

I'll call the restaurant tomorrow, will book for 12 for now and see what they say re deposit etc, can call to change the number later if needed.

Is 1pm OK? Could do a bit later if you like Pixie?

DoreensEatingHerSoreen Tue 22-Apr-14 20:19:27

Ha ha that's that mystery solved then chocolatesunshinecatladyballs! wink

MABS Wed 23-Apr-14 07:43:09

Ratty is a small possible, others I have heard from are on your list.

ConfusedPixie Wed 23-Apr-14 08:51:15

1pm should be fine, I'll be a bit late but there by 1:30, and I don't think I've ever known us to order anything but wine before that point anyway smile grin wine

DoreensEatingHerSoreen Wed 23-Apr-14 11:43:57

Pho do not take reservations on Saturdays.

I asked what was the likelhood of a table being available for 12/14 people on a Saturday at 1pm and they seemed to think we should be fine, but suggested someone pop in half an hour earlier and let them know that a big party was on the way.

So what do you think, shall we risk it? Ity might make it a bit difficult with people arriing slightly later.

We could meet in the Black Lion pub or somewhere near by and wait until we have everyone before going in to eat.

Or we could go for somewhere else

DoreensEatingHerSoreen Wed 23-Apr-14 11:44:57

You'll just have to decipher my typing on the above post I'm afraid grin

ConfusedPixie Wed 23-Apr-14 12:50:54

They're mad not to take reservations for large groups surely?!

I don't know, because I really don't think a popular restaurant would have a table for 14 available with barely any notice surely?

MABS Wed 23-Apr-14 13:48:18

I happy to get there 12.30 and sit and wait at a table til group gets there.

DoreensEatingHerSoreen Wed 23-Apr-14 14:01:48

I'd meet you in that case MABS


MABS Wed 23-Apr-14 14:04:40

Oh no! would you make me drink whilst we wait for the others?? t'is a deal x
