Drinks Social @ Texicana

Hi All,

I'll be wearing beige trousers and dark maroon shirt. Please ask for Sanjay's group when you get there. We pretty much have the whole of upstairs. I will email my mobile number. Don't worry if you RSVP at the last minute, there is plenty of space.

If you visit their website it says 'Texicana is now closed for business'. When I went their last Friday this wasn't mentioned to me (maybe the manager didn't know either at that point since the website message has only been placed this week). However, this doesn't affect us as they will actually be closing Sunday after lunch and they are expecting at least 80 of us for drinks, so they will be well prepared for. The manager also has the link to this event and should the numbers increase they will accommodate us accordingly. Tim the manager has personally told me that they are a professional and so regardless of them shutting down on Sunday afternoon, we will be well looked after :) 

He might do some special offers for us on the night, but that's a maybe with nothing guaranteed at the moment and it all depends on how the night goes!

We will be joined by members from a couple of other groups as well.

Time for the monthly meal and drinks. This time with the drinks in Texicana, which is the same place as the meal earlier in the evening. It faces the riverside up the little hill between The Slug & Lettuce and Pitcher & Piano pubs. We will have the upstairs part which also has a balcony, but there will be a limit to the number of people that can go on the balcony at any given time. Please ask for Sanjay's booking and they will direct you to our area. Tim the manager has kindly offered to give us some complimentary Nachos with Salsa sauce.

If you are a new member then don’t worry everyone is really friendly and it’s all very casual. Looking forward to meeting new and existing members :)

    In the flow of conversation tonight I mentioned what I'll be doing tomorrow (well today Sunday) which some people showed interest. I'll be going to the Mela show by the link below. If anyone fancies coming to it then pleas text or call me. I plan to be there by 4pm at the very latest but hopefully much earlier!!

    I know there was a bit of a queue initially as everyone came within a few minutes, but the queue did clear up. Overall with the balcony view I think it was an enjoyable evening.

    Finally a full nice sunny day on a summer Drinks Social evening where I can go outside (well the balcony) and enjoy my drink in the sunshine! Beats the usual torrential rain, gale, storm, tornadoes :)[masked]
