New Years Eve

## Update: The Yards fires up at 9pm so I have changed the start time accordingly. We can meet from 8pm however at O'Neils up the road ## Well we have settled on a location...now it is time to buy tickets! Best if each person get their own by either ringing them on[masked] or just pop buy. Tickets are £10 which gives access to areas not open to at-the-door entry sales, a glass of bubbles at midnight, etc. See here for more info ... http://www.yardbarkitchen.co.uk/index

    Dear All,
    Two very good friends of mine (Carla and Gianluca) are visiting Cardiff for the New year. I took the liberty of addressing them towards The Yard for tonights celebrations, and told them you guys will be there.
    They are very nice and friendly people, so perhaps they might say helo, if they can spot you in the venue.
    I wish I could be there to celebrate with you! :)

    Have a great time, and my best wishes for a Happy New Year to all of you.
    See you all very soon.
    Ermanno

      No worries! Tell them to look out for the red welsh dragon :)

      December 31, 2012

    • Stuart R.

      Argh! I forgot the dragon! Let them know they can call me on[masked] instead.

      December 31, 2012

  • Lucy A.

    December 31, 2012

    • Juliet H.

      Don't worry I think some people will turn up and buy tickets at the lasst minute could you possibly message me your number incase I can't find you? Juliet

      When the bar and band finish at 1.00am, they'll soon sell!

      December 31, 2012

  • Lucy A.

    The party doesn't start until 9pm. I am meeting friends at 8pm at O'Neils in St Mary Street. I have to study today so I won't be able to make 7pm. Shall we meet at O'Neils?

    December 31, 2012

    • Stuart R.

      Thanks Lucy. I have updated.

    ... Thanks Stu for suggesting Nos Da hostel !

  • Jon G

    Looking forward to tomorrow evening !!! - *but Please may I mention that I've put a meetup on the site for New Years Day - "Afternoon Tea / Coffee & Cake". It's currently a Suggested meetup, so Please RSVP if you'd like to join me for some afternoon tea/coffee, cake & a chat. Thanks.
    Just want to also say - No problem now staying overnight in Cardiff. Booked into an excellent value-for-money hostel in city centre, so everything's fine.

    Hey everybody, Please may I ask: Will any of you guys Please let me sleep on the floor of your house on New Years night? The taxi back to Caerphilly is going to be triple fare because of new year - so it will cost at least £50 !! (normal 1 way fare is £17 / £18). I can't afford to pay this much money to get home. Sleeping on the floor will be absolutely fine & I can bring a sleeping bag with me. I'm hoping to drive into Cardiff n y eve, and drive back to Caerphilly during n y day- when I'm sober enough to drive back home ! :-)
    Please let me know if this is possible. Thanks.

    December 29, 2012

    • Stuart R.

      Oh, and Nos Da has £18 beds and is just round the corner over the bridge.

      The Bunk House, it is practicaly opposite the Yard

    Hi All, I hope you've been having a lovely Christmas.
    Please may I ask: have you bought tickets for new years eve for The Yard ? The meetup details say The Yard is the confirmed place. Revolution is also mentioned, so I don't know if tickets have been bought for Revolution & not The Yard? Please let me know, & I will get a ticket for the right place!
    Thanks, Jon

    December 27, 2012

    • Stuart R.

      Hi Jon. Revolution was booked up so we settled on The Yard. So that is indeed the place. See you there!

      December 27, 2012

    • Juliet H.

      Looks like stuart got in first, yep its definitely yard we're going to looking forward to it!

      December 27, 2012

  • Juliet H.

    Bought my ticket woop!

    1 · December 23, 2012

    • Lucy A.

      They'll soon sell!

      December 23, 2012

    • Juliet H.

      Glad we've got everything sorted I'm sure they'll be sold out by 31st

      December 23, 2012

  • Stuart R.

    So Revolution is booked up, except for 2 tickets here and there. Nothing for 7. Live Lounge is £10 at the door inc two drinks. Likely heaving though. More ideas?

    December 22, 2012

    • Lucy A.

      I'm not in Cardiff, but I can call them to book a ticker once we have decided

      December 22, 2012

    • Juliet H.

      I say let's go for it!

      December 22, 2012

  • Juliet H.

    Yep like that I can get my ticket tomorrow then if we're agreed on that

    December 22, 2012

  • Stuart R.

    so Revolution is sounding like a good option. Everyone happy with that? Should we look at tickets then?

    December 21, 2012

    • Juliet H.

      I tried phoning rev de cuba couldn't get through looks like we can still buy tickets for other revolution bar there's some for 10 poumds and 17 pounds I think we should make a decision quickly as last year I left it to last minute and had great trouble getting in anywhere!

      December 22, 2012

    • Stuart R.

      Just dropped into Revolution. They are booked up. Trying live lounge at moment

      December 22, 2012

  • Lucy A.

    My favourite bar is Revolucion de Cuba (Friary), but they anything haven't advertised anything yet. I like Revolucion's (9-11 Castle Street) premium package: £25 for
    Free Entry
    Q-Jump
    Table/Booth – Yours for the whole night!
    Champagne
    2 x Vodka Flavour Shots each
    3 Drinks vouchers each

    • Lucy A.

      I don't think there's a band playing, but it's quite a lively place and they have a dance floor at the back. Nothing exciting really Q = queue :)

      December 20, 2012

    • Juliet H.

      Yeah this sounds good I like not queuing! Price isn't bad for what were getting and considering its a peak night

      December 20, 2012

  • Dan

    I like the idea of a get together.
    On a crazy busy night its always best to choose a good place and stay there!

    December 19, 2012

    • Lucy A.

      I think you're also right there! You can get tickets in advance for the Yard which would probably be a safe bet!

      December 19, 2012

    • Stuart R.

      So what is the yard? Still learning my way around!

      December 20, 2012

  • Lucy A.

    I like the idea of the bay also

    December 19, 2012

    • Juliet H.

      I'm not so sure taxis back could be very expensive from bay maybe we could start there and move on? Or yard sounds good and would be easier for me

      December 19, 2012

    • Lucy A.

      First the Bay then on to the Yard even?

      December 19, 2012

  • Lucy A.

    Copa (4 Wharton Street, Cardiff) are apparantely thinking of having a casino night, but there is nothing on their website as yet. The Yard (St. Mary Street, Cardiff) are asking £10 entry and have a DJ and live band: Salvation. I will keep on looking to see what's out there!

    December 19, 2012

  • Juliet H.

    We need to think about where we can go!
