When meeting up take sensible precautions. Meet in a public place and let others know where you are going. You can also meet mums on your local site here.

OK, <deep breath> if I organise it....Is anyone up for a Christmas meet-up in a hotel where we can drink, eat, dance and hear each other. It will require approx. a tenner (non-returnable if you drop out) in advance?

I'm thinking...

Function room in central London hotel (easy for everyone to get to, with rooms at hopefully a good rate, on-site)

Some food, some wine (or whatever) and a DJ.

London again

MamaGryffindor Mon 16-Jul-07 23:31:31

No, Because:-

(a) I live too far away and
(b) I'd have to be nice to everyone
(c)

Function room in a hotel

CountessDracula Mon 16-Jul-07 23:31:46

sounds a bit Alan Partridge

moondog Mon 16-Jul-07 23:32:01

function room?????

You will be mistaken for the Rotarian Ladies' Circle.

CountessDracula Mon 16-Jul-07 23:32:27

well said moondog

(has your pmt gone?! )

Bubble99 Mon 16-Jul-07 23:32:53

But, CD, it's either that or a bar where, yes, we can dance on banquettes but we can't hear each other.

moondog Mon 16-Jul-07 23:33:23

PMT??

Gah,no such thing.

Have been to an energetic step session tonight.

Fightinmg fit, me.

Twinklemegan Mon 16-Jul-07 23:33:37

How's about somewhere more central than London for a change?

Tortington Mon 16-Jul-07 23:33:58

i think its a great idea.

i think the londoners wat sommat swanky.

thing is your not going to please everyone

thats why democracy just doesn't work int hese situations

CountessDracula Mon 16-Jul-07 23:33:59

so how about upstairs in a pub
loads have rooms

just purleeese not a function room in a hotel

We could just go the whole hog and go to a travellodge on the swindon ring road or something, razor blades free of charge.

Bubble99 Mon 16-Jul-07 23:34:05

Oh fuck off, all of you.

Shall I get this thread pulled and try again with a different phrase?

MamaGryffindor Mon 16-Jul-07 23:34:36

I think you should

Tortington Mon 16-Jul-07 23:34:41

twinkle i do believe there is a midlands one - and you can always organise one at a location of your choice whenever you want

crunchie Mon 16-Jul-07 23:34:45

bubble have you seen the other thread?? I promised to look at city bars/pubs as they are dead at weekend and do private hire (therefore we can set volumes) only I have been too busy.

moondog Mon 16-Jul-07 23:34:52

Piss about with the trouser presses once you've got a bit tiddly on the pre-mixed G&Ts from the min bar.

Sound s like a hoot.

I'm in!

CountessDracula Mon 16-Jul-07 23:35:13

I don't want swanky

I prefer a bit scummy tbh

But a sodding hotel room with horrible burgundy carpet with fleur de lys in it and fecking shite dj and sausage rolls....

count me out!

MintyDixCharrington Mon 16-Jul-07 23:35:38

well a travelodge on the swindon ring road would be AWFULLY convenient for me
and I could invite certain choice mumsnetters to come and stay at peahead towers and we'd be the palazzo clique

oh yes go on go on go on

moondog Mon 16-Jul-07 23:35:50

I once went to a school reunion in a Travelodge in Burnley.

Unsurprisingly it was dreadful

We even ate dinner there.

Twinklemegan Mon 16-Jul-07 23:35:57

Oh I know. It's just the "official" meet-ups are always in bloody London (like the rest of us are second class Mumsnetters or something )

CountessDracula Mon 16-Jul-07 23:36:07

City good yes
The Samuel Pepys is fantastic venue

beautiful views of the Globe and the Tate modern

food ok, lovely lighting etc

ComeOVeneer Mon 16-Jul-07 23:36:11

Twinkle I think the general consensus for the past few years is if there are people waning one based elsewhere in the country the onus is on them to organise one (I think there may have been a Birmingham one last year)

CountessDracula Mon 16-Jul-07 23:36:38

oh minty, minty
