IMPORTANT - Change in venue for October meetup

Hi everyone,

as those of you who have recently been coming along to Book Group are aware, Waxy O'Connors is no longer a suitable venue for us. I looked around at a few places, and finally narrowed the list down to two venues, one in the City Centre and one in the West End. My preference would have been to stay Central, however I'm still waiting on that venue getting back to me with an answer to addition questions I had, and time is marching on so I had to make a decision.

As of October 5 the Book Group will meet in the Grosvenor Cafe in Ashton Lane in the West End. Obviously this isn't central, but I'm hoping it won't pose any problem as it's just round the corner from a subway station (Hillhead), near a bus route, and there's plenty of free parking off Byres Road or on University Avenue or University Gardens.

The room we'll have should be big enough for us, and if not then they have a slightly bigger room as well. As a major selling point it has a door, so should be quiet enough for our discussions. The Grosvenor Cafe is a bar, so you'll still be able to buy drinks, etc. soft or otherwise.

To find the new venue go into Ashton Lane and find the Grosvenor Cinema, it's pretty unmissable. Next door is a bar called (I think) The Loft or The Lane. Either side of the entrance to this bar are stairs leading up, go up and that is the Grosvenor Cafe. The room I've been offered is to the right once you've entered, but this is all being arranged officially with the bar so staff should be able to help if you can't find us.

I hope the change in venue doesn't prove inconvenient, and I look forward to seeing you in October.
