Brighton Xmas meetup

Hi there everyone. I really want to get our Xmas meetup sorted as I'm sure places will get booked up soon.

So far we have suggested Sat 6th December and talked about Pub Du Vin.

When I looked at their menu it was £35 for lunch which I think is a bit pricey. How about we consider it for drinks afterwards instead?

I check out All Bar One and their xmas menu is £22 with some deal on wine. I know we've been there and done that but it does have a big space and it's very central.

I've had a look at some other 'more interesting' options but they're either evening only, too expensive or unable to take large bookings.

So, please send me any other suggestions to look into or vote for ABO and I'll let you all know if we need deposits <groan>

Love Cob

I'm in but having just quit my job cheaper is better!

I had an e-mail through today about Jamie Oliver's place-think it's £27.95 for 3 courses & a glass of prosecco?

Count me in and happy with ABO

Gast How's it going? Have you finished yet or is it in the next few weeks?

If you fancy coffee in town or something give me a shout, I need to get out. I've spent the three days I had off this week on the phone to CAB, Trading Standards and researching the legalities of this flipping car. Going to be that way next week too so need a break soon!

MyGastIsFlabbered Fri 03-Oct-14 21:44:13

I've got 3 weeks left but already dropped to 3 days a week so free on Tuesdays & Wednesdays if you want to pop over?

PixieofCatan Fri 03-Oct-14 22:03:17

Ah cool, I'm free on Tuesdays at the moment, but without a car whilst we try sort out the shit tip we bought two weeks ago though sad Give me a week or so and I'll work out a way to pop over smile Fucking car <<grumbles>>

MyGastIsFlabbered Fri 03-Oct-14 23:14:23

Sorry for the hijack! Can meet in town if you'd prefer? Will have Bertie with me though

PixieofCatan Sat 04-Oct-14 08:33:26

That'd be cool smile It probably would have to be week after next now, they are refusing to fix the fucking car so I think I'll be booking solicitors appointments for Monday and Tuesday sad

6th Dec fine with me, or anywhere really x

CobOnTheCorn Sat 04-Oct-14 20:00:48

Pho is the other place I thought of as they had lots of space when we went there before.

I've never eaten at Jamie's - what's it like?

MABS are you still thinking about wine tasting at 10 green bottles?

The places I've already looked at that don't seem to work for us are: Little Bay, 64 degrees, Dirty Blonde and Cafe Rouge.

SESthebrave Sat 04-Oct-14 22:20:09

I'm in and don't mind where ��

MABS Sun 05-Oct-14 10:39:27

Pho is a good idea, Like Jamies but often very very busy. Actually no to Ten Green Botts as they full that day anyway, and I think one of the meals you suggesting be a better idea smile

GingerPuddin Sun 05-Oct-14 11:26:35

I'm in

CobOnTheCorn Sun 05-Oct-14 12:33:07

Quick update: I've provisionally a table at Pho for 15-20 people on Saturday the 6th. They don't have their Xmas menus finalised yet which is annoying. I'll check again in a weeks time and when they're ready I'll let everyone know then we can make a final decision. Both Pho and ABO request £5 deposit per person.

I'd like to send out a PM to mners who might not know about this yet, please can you all list out people you can think of and I'll collate them and send them all a message.

Last thought is whether we should book a table for drinks later on. Maybe at Pub du Vin - does anyone fancy helping me out by giving them a call to see whether such a thing is possible?


PixieofCatan Sun 05-Oct-14 13:23:56

Some of these aren't full names but off the top of my head:
Doreeneatighersoreen (namechanged?)

MyGastIsFlabbered Sun 05-Oct-14 14:38:56

Pesto? But I can't think what her full name is.

Ursula & Jo (x2) but I don't know their MN names..MABS will know.

And Ratty

Local Editor came to one but I can't remember her name either or if she still does the local site.

kikisunflower Sun 05-Oct-14 14:58:33

Is this an open invite for all mners in the Brighton area ?

MyGastIsFlabbered Sun 05-Oct-14 15:00:09

Yes Kiki, everyone is welcome.

kikisunflower Sun 05-Oct-14 15:14:16

In that case I'd love to join in the fun, sounds like lovely idea so count me in smile

MyGastIsFlabbered Sun 05-Oct-14 15:16:45

There's also one on 25th October Kiki, not sure where yet though!

MABS Sun 05-Oct-14 15:39:22

more the merrier smile x

PixieofCatan Sun 05-Oct-14 15:55:18

I remember LE's real name (I think, same/similar to my RL name?! Or was that somebody else?) but not MN name as she was Local editor on here.

I don't know her MN name but Naomi?
