Take the b3tans drinking(QOTW OT)

It's been a bit of a shit year, so I'm not celebrating my 30th as I'd originally planned. But I would like to celebrate with some of the lovely QOTW'rs who I've spoken to and have helped keep me relatively sane this year.

Here is where we shall be going...

Horse and groom on Great Portland Street

London Village, you say?

I'll be there!

Also, I don't believe you're going to be 30! ;)

(, Fri 20 Jun 2008, 21:57, Reply)
Yep I'm old

The quaint olde towne of London village it is. So that way I can easily get home by tube or night bus - Just found out the night bus stops right outside my flat :)

Hehe, you're not old!

In our prime, you and I!

(, Fri 20 Jun 2008, 22:19, Reply)
Well I'm enjoying life

a lot more now than I was 10 years ago, so I guess that's something to be said for getting old.

EDIT: Tentatively has now officially become definitely.

It's a long way off

But I should be there.

We shall see...

I'm hoping that London village

is London. Not something else.

(, Sat 21 Jun 2008, 18:03, Reply)
Yeah it's London

but now I live here it doesn't seem so big, so I refer to it as a village :)

(, Sat 21 Jun 2008, 20:16, Reply)
I can't believe

your 30, you look way younger than that.

Anyhoo, I don't yet have plans for that night, so I shall be glad to attend.

(, Sat 21 Jun 2008, 20:09, Reply)

Yep, I'll be 30 in November. Now can you see why I get fucked off when people ask me for ID...Nothing to do with the fact that I'm rubbish at remembering to carry any with me ,)

I would like to be there

but I won't oficially sign up at the mo.... HOPE to be there :-)

I'd like to be there

Tentatively... if anyone's coming down the M1 I'd gladly share fuel costs... or I'll find a way.

*Tentatively signs up*

Hmmm, could be worth a look I think? Would be good to see RTW there!

(, Thu 2 Oct 2008, 22:24, Reply)

Starting to make plans now.

Has there been any thoughts as to where this bash will be? I don't want to go booking a hotel that's on the wrong side of the city or something :)

The Yorkshire Grey worked very well for spakkaman's bash at the weekend.

I plan to be

in london considerably earlier than 8pm, but then thats not much help to anyone really

(, Tue 21 Oct 2008, 17:50, Reply)

I'll be around from about 6 depending upon the final venue choice.

(, Thu 23 Oct 2008, 13:56, Reply)

I have a half day so might do a little bumble beforehand but yeah 6ish is reasonable for me, will probably have to chip off before 11 so thats good for me sir

(, Fri 24 Oct 2008, 19:16, Reply)

Yep, the Yorkshire Grey seemed to work quite well last time (if I do say so myself) but it might be a bit busier on a Friday.

(, Thu 23 Oct 2008, 13:50, Reply)
Yeah, the barmaid

Said that it was "fucking manic" on the Friday.

Or she might have called me a "Fucking Maniac".
I can't quite remember...

Option B

Considering the drinks you were ordering I suspect it was option B!

(, Thu 23 Oct 2008, 15:26, Reply)

That may be true...
Red Diesel is the drink choice of Champions though.

(, Fri 24 Oct 2008, 11:56, Reply)

I'd thought about coming down to London to see the Bacon exhibition...

I'm tempted to factor this into my trip.

(, Tue 28 Oct 2008, 11:55, Reply)

Where's that on?

(, Tue 28 Oct 2008, 15:35, Reply)
Tate Britain

(, Wed 29 Oct 2008, 12:51, Reply)
Thanks Enzyme

That's Saturday morning sorted then.

(, Fri 31 Oct 2008, 11:22, Reply)

it's a really good exhibition. Try to get there as early as possible though, it gets rammed very quickly.

(, Wed 12 Nov 2008, 11:31, Reply)
As a notherner...

Can anyone tell me which part of London you are thinking of meeting in?

(, Tue 28 Oct 2008, 15:50, Reply)
If we go to the Yorkshire Grey

it's here
It's a fairly central location.

Hold on to your apostrophes

Unless things go tits up I will be coming :)

(, Fri 7 Nov 2008, 12:16, Reply)
can things go

apostrophe up so I can hold on to your tits instead please?

(, Fri 7 Nov 2008, 15:12, Reply)

then what will I hold on to?

My cock

(, Sun 9 Nov 2008, 18:02, Reply)
That's my cock you thief

(, Sun 9 Nov 2008, 18:55, Reply)
I shall slice the cock in half

and you can share it.

(, Tue 18 Nov 2008, 16:43, Reply)

Ok, I am signed up, and everything is so far looking like I can actually make a London bash!

This makes me happy.

(, Mon 10 Nov 2008, 10:19, Reply)

Pub is decided as The Yorkshire Grey in central London.

Oh dear god, I've just seen how many people are going now. This started out as a tiny thing and has become a bit of a behemoth...not that I'm complaining, but bear in mind that I'm not the only person celebrating a birthday, but I'll leave it up to him to decide if he wants to out himself as it were ,)

(, Mon 10 Nov 2008, 19:16, Reply)

seeing as clendrix and kaol are having a joint birthday bash . . .

The real question

Is "what do you buy a 50-year-old man?"

(, Tue 11 Nov 2008, 14:45, Reply)

ask me in 16 years, and 14 days

if you are not in arkham by then

(, Tue 11 Nov 2008, 16:07, Reply)

That place is easier to get out of than a wet paper bag!

(, Tue 11 Nov 2008, 16:16, Reply)

obviously! whats the point in either locking villains up in places they cannot escape from, or killing them off, tends to fuck up the potential storylines a little bit

(, Tue 11 Nov 2008, 17:07, Reply)

But mine's a bit later. But then again, IIRC, this bash wasn't on the day of your birthday.

(, Wed 12 Nov 2008, 1:33, Reply)
I'm in!

Very much looking forward to some advent cheer!

(, Wed 12 Nov 2008, 11:30, Reply)
A question...

Does anyone have a spare room I could crash in? I'm quite happy to cook a (rather good) fry-up next morning in payment, or a stack of pancakes, should you so choose...

(, Thu 13 Nov 2008, 20:20, Reply)

If you don't mind travelling to the outer edges of London, I could put you up. I should also warn you my floor is wooden so you may need more than a sleeping-bag, but I've got an extra sleeping-bag so you can use that one too.

Also, in case we miss the last tube back, it's really close to a night-bus stop.

(, Thu 13 Nov 2008, 21:18, Reply)
Sorry Piston

I'm a London b3tan, but the space I have was snapped up by a keen south-coaster quite some time ago.

(, Thu 13 Nov 2008, 21:41, Reply)
Can I

share a bag with you?

(, Thu 20 Nov 2008, 13:59, Reply)

It's now

Cheers Lustypants

Can't go after all now


(, Wed 19 Nov 2008, 17:27, Reply)
Bit late

but Rakky has persuaded me to come along. As such whereas before you were all umming and erring, now you have a bona fide reason to go too!
No need to thank me.
ps - If you have no idea who the feck I am anyway... let me know :)
pps - If you want to give me a floor for the evening, let me know even more.

(, Thu 20 Nov 2008, 13:57, Reply)
Start time

Anyone else going to be there before 8? I'm heading off straight from the office so would prefer not to hang around.

(, Tue 25 Nov 2008, 19:36, Reply)

I'll definitely be around before then. What sort of time are you going to get there?

(, Wed 26 Nov 2008, 8:16, Reply)
Not sure yet.

Will grab a bite to eat and make my way there. I'd expect to be there by 7pm.

(, Wed 26 Nov 2008, 18:45, Reply)

I'll also will be looking to head there after work (coming from Bank way so only 10-20 mins away) let me know what time you pair will be there, gaz me if you want numbers etc.

(, Wed 26 Nov 2008, 11:16, Reply)

Bill, Boss Keloid and myself will more than likely be there from 6ish

(, Wed 26 Nov 2008, 11:35, Reply)
I reckon

I'll be leaving work at 4.
So... *shrugs*

Maybe by six, if I'm lucky.
Maybe I'll turn up at seven, covered in blood, sweat and bits of commuters.

(, Wed 26 Nov 2008, 20:37, Reply)
@ spakka

I'll be there from around 4ish


(, Wed 26 Nov 2008, 14:02, Reply)
I will arrive at around 9pm

Work sucks like that.

tits, can't make it after all.

I'm going to watch depraved bendy filth at the Hippodrome instead (La Clique)

(, Thu 27 Nov 2008, 11:54, Reply)

Now I don't have to worry so much about not going myself.

I have friends in that.

I am mostly cool. Mostly.

You're cool enough

To freeze warts off.

can I not find anywhere near me that sells soft pack Malboros?


(, Fri 28 Nov 2008, 12:20, Reply)
Soft pack?

No idea what they even are...

(, Fri 28 Nov 2008, 12:41, Reply)

foil and paper wrapped instead of cardboard, much nicer taste but the last 5 tend to get flattened if you are not careful

(, Fri 28 Nov 2008, 13:23, Reply)
Oh right!

I've never seen 'em anywhere, strange.

(, Fri 28 Nov 2008, 13:45, Reply)
The newsagent 'round the corner from my work sells 'em.

Gaz me if you want me to grab you a pack.
