Christmas Drinks

Hey guys,

Lets get together and celebrate the end of year in style! It's been a fantastic 2012 and it would be great to catch up with everyone!

We're aiming to meet in Soho or Shoreditch, but i'll confirm the venue when i have a better idea of how many are attending.

So get FRIDAY DECEMBER 7TH in your diary, and feel free to bring friends along too!

Thanks everyone,
Mario :)

    No worries Silvia. Are you close ?

    December 7, 2012

  • Mario

    I'm on ground floor, close to bar.

    December 7, 2012

    • Silvia

      I'm on the bus, but there's traffic! See you later

  • Mario

    Guys, please note that we don't have a 'reserved' area in the pub as the manager wanted to charge a ridiculous fee for this. Looking forward to seeing you all, will be a fun night :)

      Brilliant!

  • Julian A.

    Sorry to say this guys, but I won't be able to make it :( I've been living in some far, uncharted part of Maidenhead for the past week and the public transport is an absolute mess. Have fun and don't forget to post pictures!

    Hi Mario,
    Just to confirm - we are meeting outside The Driver Pub, right? Not at Shoreditch as previously mentioned.

    December 6, 2012

    • Denis M.

      Too many of us to wait outside. Better to be inside with such a weather and try to grab a big table... See you soon :)

      December 6, 2012

    • Mario

      Absolutely right Denis, will be silly to wait outside. :)

      December 6, 2012

  • Mario

    Hey guys, please make a note of my number just in case you need to call me tomorrow night. 07789654861. :)

    December 6, 2012

  • Mario

    Hey Julian, if they are the rules I'll be getting there first! ;))

      Last group member to get there buys drinks for every other member, that's the Christmas rule! :D

    Hi everyone. Thank you all for your suggestions. Waiting to hear back from The Driver in kings cross. Will know today. The plans is drinks, but we could head somewhere else afterwards if we wanted to. :)

    What is the plan for this event? Is it just drinks, or it will take us to a club later on? Anything central and general is good :)

    The Royal George in Soho is really chilled out place and its only 2 mins walk from Tottenham Court Road. What about this one ?

    November 27, 2012

    Yes, please pick something more central, as we are coming from different locations, some of us traveling from outer London :D

    I went to this very nice pub last evening, well lit, very spatious. The food and drinks were great and the prices were ok. http://www.theflagwatford.co.uk/ Yep, it's in Watford but it's less than a minute away from Watford Junction Station.

    I asked one of their employees about reservations for larger groups, he said it can be done over the phone, one day in advance. No reservation fees or anything like that.

    November 26, 2012

    • Samantha B.

      Maybe something more central? In Twickenham we have great pubs but it is too far for some of you. There are very nice places in Hammersmith, and I am sure every pub accept reservations

      November 26, 2012

  • Mario

    By the way... I know 7 other people who are also keen on joining us! :)

    November 26, 2012

  • Mario

    Hey everyone, it's brilliant to see so many people interested in meeting up for drinks! Denis, you are right, we may need to look into reserving a place, i'll investigate tomorrow. In the meantime if anyone has other suggestions of a suitable venue, please do share them here. Cheers, looking forward to seeing you all on Dec 7th!!

    November 26, 2012

  • Denis M.

    Did not find any place really! I am thinking about the Driver in king's Cross because there is a lot of space! We may find something better! I am wondering if we should not better reserve a large space somewhere in a pub as we are going to be in a large number. Any ideas, suggestions?

    November 24, 2012

  • Mario

    Hi Sam. It will be a pub location. Looking forward to catching up with you. :)

    November 10, 2012

  • Mario

    Jade - will keep you posted! Do come along if you can. Julian - yep, thanks for volunteering! Do you have a Santa suit? ;) Samantha - it's been a while, would be great to catch again. :)

    November 8, 2012

    • Samantha B.

      Yeah I had a couple of hectic months! I am looking forward to hear what you guys are up to :) these days!

      November 8, 2012

    • Samantha B.

      ps. We are looking into a pub location or something different?

      November 8, 2012

  • Julian A.

    Will one of us have to dress up like Santa?

    November 8, 2012

  • Jade
