Impromptu QOTW Mini Bash Thing

A sort of off-the-cuff mini bash here in LONDON VILLAGE.


Why not!

So let's wind down after a hard week internetting with a couple of long, cold beers. Bliss!

(Venue open to discussion!)

Yay mini bash

just after payday :) All things going to plan

(, Tue 24 Jun 2008, 21:16, Reply)

I'd love to but will have to restrict myself to August this year.

(, Wed 25 Jun 2008, 14:11, Reply)

Can't we plan these things at least one month in advance?

(, Tue 24 Jun 2008, 21:16, Reply)

But then it wouldn't be off the cuff.

*smugs about living in London*

I clicked, I'm coming to this!
And then realised it's the weekend after next...I've got the kids...the only way I'll be able to do it is if I catch the last train back to Kent...which means no drinking as I'd have to drive home from the station.


I've unclicked for now....I'll have a think.

I really want to come!

(, Tue 24 Jun 2008, 21:35, Reply)
Come anyway

and get a cab instead of driving.

*wants to meet chickenlady*

(, Tue 24 Jun 2008, 21:59, Reply)

I'm coming now, and I expect to see chickenlady. If you avoid me twice I know it's deliberate avoidance!

I couldn't make the last one cos of work cos everyone was sick and poor little ol' me had to pick up all their bastard trials. Which sucked cos there were loads of people, even Davros was down from oop north. This one is looking far more promising though. Misterspakkaman, where is it you live in French-land then? My vote for venue -- witness box, penderel's oak or anywhere near victoria station.

(, Wed 25 Jun 2008, 7:47, Reply)
Witness Box, eh?

It is a good one, I'll give you that. It will be rammed on a Friday in summer though...

Any other suggestions before we pass sentence?

(, Wed 25 Jun 2008, 9:58, Reply)
My vote is for a dodgy Goth pub.

I don't know any though.

(, Wed 25 Jun 2008, 10:33, Reply)
The Devonshire Arms?

Ahahahahah. No.

(, Mon 30 Jun 2008, 10:18, Reply)
Can I come?!

I promise not to force anyone to eat cakes (unless they want me to)

(, Wed 25 Jun 2008, 10:40, Reply)
Of course you can!

Hopefully I'll get to talk to you coherantly this time...

EDIT: Assuming I'm allowed to come, given what happened last time...

(, Wed 25 Jun 2008, 10:46, Reply)
coherent conversations

are over rated.

(, Wed 25 Jun 2008, 10:57, Reply)

That's that settled.
I shall not be drinking at this bash though.

(, Wed 25 Jun 2008, 11:02, Reply)
That's ok.

I'll drink enough for the both of us.

(, Wed 25 Jun 2008, 11:15, Reply)
There's no need for that

We don't want a fatality.

(, Wed 25 Jun 2008, 15:05, Reply)
Wouldn't be the same without you, old boy!

(, Wed 25 Jun 2008, 11:17, Reply)
Jolly good!

We'll have a smashing time then chaps!

(, Wed 25 Jun 2008, 11:23, Reply)
Come along!

The more the merrier! :)

(, Wed 25 Jun 2008, 11:18, Reply)
As long as it's not a match day

There's my local which has this website for some ungodly reason. They really are the last pub in the world you'd expect to do this, but at least you can all have a virtual tour.

And they do some smashing Thai food.

(, Wed 25 Jun 2008, 11:32, Reply)
Every day seems to be a bloody match day

At the moment.
It's that Euro-Cup thingy.

(, Wed 25 Jun 2008, 11:50, Reply)

I would LOVE to go back to the fullback.

Fullback FTW!

Vote Fulback!

It's a great pub.

(, Wed 25 Jun 2008, 12:40, Reply)
Match day

as in at the Arsenal stadium, which is pub distance away.

(, Wed 25 Jun 2008, 13:14, Reply)
The footie season finshed

a good few weeks ago. So no chance of it being match day.

(, Wed 25 Jun 2008, 13:44, Reply)
Thanks al

You can see how much attention I pay.

(, Wed 25 Jun 2008, 16:56, Reply)
Aren't some pubs

showing the world cup or Euro whatever it is at the moment though Al?

(, Wed 25 Jun 2008, 22:01, Reply)
Very Important Euro Football Shield Cup

Should be finished by then, I think...

(, Thu 26 Jun 2008, 8:26, Reply)
Yeah it finishes next week

I think.

(, Thu 26 Jun 2008, 9:34, Reply)
Is everyone else

in reasonable distance of the fullback? Otherwise me and al will go without you.

(, Thu 26 Jun 2008, 13:14, Reply)

How near is it to tube stations?

(, Fri 27 Jun 2008, 9:43, Reply)
S'not far away, by the look of things.

Only a 40 minute trek home too (for me), so eminently doable! :)

(, Fri 27 Jun 2008, 11:17, Reply)
The Fullback

Is a five minute walk from Finsbury Park tube station, or a two minute run if you are being pursued by chair leg wielding maniacs, or if you get shot in the neck by a random gun toting nutter, you could get there in about 30 seconds.

I wouldn't want to scare anyone mind, I lived there two years, and these things only happened once so I reckon your pretty safe.

Actually, no-one got shot in Finsbury Park, they just got shot at, the bloke that got shot was on Upper Street.

(, Fri 27 Jun 2008, 13:00, Reply)
I'm bulletproof.

So I'm not worried.

(, Fri 27 Jun 2008, 15:30, Reply)
Well that's about

20 minutes for me by tube as I'll be coming straight from work.

(, Fri 27 Jun 2008, 23:47, Reply)
I was thinking...

Of bringing brownies, they're not strictly cakes so I wont feel bad about force feeding them to you all.

(, Mon 30 Jun 2008, 14:45, Reply)
Can I, a main boarder, come along

just to be better than all of you?

(, Mon 30 Jun 2008, 18:44, Reply)


(, Mon 30 Jun 2008, 18:49, Reply)
A bit of a heads-up

There may be another London Bash on Tue 22 or Wed 23 July when I'll be in London. I'll post a calendar entry when I know the date.

Can the New Boy Come

I promise to good!

(, Wed 2 Jul 2008, 12:51, Reply)

That'd be great!

New flesh!

*packs nice Chianti and flava beans*

(, Wed 2 Jul 2008, 18:23, Reply)
Sorry chaps,

can't make it after all. Maybe next time.

(, Wed 2 Jul 2008, 23:18, Reply)
There's a chance

I won't be there either, sorry.
I'll keep you posted.

(, Thu 3 Jul 2008, 0:59, Reply)
And due to

massive home bollocks I'll not be coming either!

Bummer I was looking forward to eating meeting you lot.

But there is August!

(, Thu 3 Jul 2008, 9:22, Reply)
But there may be another one in London on 22 or 23 July

Watch this space.

(, Thu 3 Jul 2008, 16:23, Reply)

On her behalf!

Often when a woman says one thing

It's been years since I've played kiss chase and I fear I may not be as good at dodging kisses as I once was!
