New Members Drinks

Hi,

This is a casual Friday evening get together after work for new members especially, but open to all.  We will have a few drinks and maybe get some tidbits to share at £2 per person payable at the Cumberland on the day to Jey.  Please keep your RSVP up to date as the bar will be basing the snacks on numbers on the site.  I have asked them to include veg snacks or cheese snacks.

If anyone is interested we will be toddling off at 8:00 PM or so to Kweilin a local chinese restaurant for a bite to eat.  Banquet option (min 2 persons is £25-30 pp).  See http://www.kweilin.net/menu/ .  Please indicate if you are interested in Kweilin when you book.  No answer to dinner afterwards I will take to mean you are not interested in coming to Kweilin. Note that you may do ala carte or banquet as you wish but note that as we are all arriving at the same time dinner may take awhile if banquet is not your option.

Cheers

Jey

    Hi, I can remember if I opted for the meal or not at the time of booking. I should like to join you at the restaurant.

    February 19, 2014

    • Jey

      You said yes so that should be fine.

      February 19, 2014

  • Jey

    PS: I have asked for a banquet option, veg and non-veg option so will let you know shortly i that is possible and what the cost will be. Drinks are extra and there is a full bar.

    February 19, 2014

  • Jey

    have requested a booking for 24-30 so we can accommodate all dinner requests. Will get confirmation from Kweilin if this is possible in a few days. I have also requested that all dishes be made as authentic chinese as possible so we can have a truly Chinese experience and welcome in the Year of the Horse. CNY fell this year on Jan 31st and all our usual CNY hosts were traveling so we are making up for it with this event. Hope the weather in Edinburgh is getting better. Its 34 degrees here in Malaysia and humid.

    Apologies, can't make this one now. Have changed my RSVP.

    Hi I am not able to attend the evening. gonna be having surgery the week before so it kinda puts a damper on the socialising for a bit.

  • Jey

    Hi, We have a lot of people interested in Kweilin so am trying to increase the numbers there. If I can't get a large group in Kweilin I will try Loong Foong in Cannonmills. I will go by who signed up first if I need to limit numbers.

    February 5, 2014

    • Kate B.

      I'll stick with just drinks.

    Looking forward to meeting you all - the Cumberland is a great place for a crowd.
