Mini S&B London 13th December

Ulaca's coming over to the UK from Hong Kong next week, and wants to meet up for a beer or three with anyone who's interested, so I'm organizing a mini Sloggers & Betters meeting at the Doric Arch pub in London on Thursday 13th Dec. People should start arriving at about 4pm. Personally I won't be able to get there until 6 as I'm working that day.

Hopefully we'll get a good turn-out despite the short notice (for which my apologies).

I should be able to get there at around 5pm. Good to put faces to names/handles. A few surprises, I'm sure!

How are we all supposed to recognise one another? If PB gets there before me (I'm hoping to arrive between 5.00 and 5.30 p.m.) then I shouldn't have any problem spotting him, and I think I might recognise Jerry, but if Andy isn't arriving until 6.00 p.m., then that could be it.

Perhaps you'll recognise me from my userpic; but, failing that, I suppose I could go round whistling the first theme from the final movement of Brahms 1 and hope that evokes a response!?

I will come if I can, but I'm not sure yet if I will be free or not.
I hope I will recognise you from the avatar ulaca :-)

There's a definite chance I might be able to make it, but don't hold me to that promise. I had a quick half in the Doric Arch last week and wished I could have had more, as the beer was excellent.

Obviously it would be tough to identify most of us purely from avatars. I expect to be able to recognise Andy, of course, especially if he has a dog on his head.

I'm not so good looking from the front.

I'm hoping to get there after "cardiac rehab" at Charing Cross Hospital.

Should be there, though not going for the suggestion made at one early S&B (that I should attend with a copy of the 20,227 grid attached behind my head).

I'll be there at 5pm and will try (together with any other early birds) to get a table(s) to accommodate around 10-12. Obviously, the more that can come the earlier, the better the chance of holding on to the tables as more revellers arrive.

I wear black rimmed glasses that some people say make me look like Peter Sellers, but personally I'd say Cary Grant! If he turns up on time I will be talking with Barry of this site-fame; if on my own I will be reading something.

I hope as many people as possible will be able to make it; I hear the weather may have warmed a little by then too.

I won't get there today I'm afraid. Have a good time!
