Dear Cheeky Drinkers,
It must be the silly season!
I rang Cloudland today to confirm our booking and whilst we are still free to go to Cloudland on Friday the General Manager has warned that it is going to be the busiest night of the year with 5 functions finishing when we are due to arrive and 5 functions starting when we arrive. In light of this he has suggested we go to one of their other Venues The Press Club. (around the corner)
Due to the experience we had 2 weeks ago i was reluctant and explained to him what had happened. He has assured me in writing that this will not happen on Friday night. So we will now meet at The Press Club on Friday night (which is around the corner from Cloudland) Cloudland is an option later in the night when it is not so busy.
I do apologies, however i would like to raise an issue concerning this. As we are a very large group now quite often venues want us to book a function room and of course they want us to pay for the space. I'm not prepared to pay for function rooms which means that we have to go in as the general public which then creates situations like we have been experiencing. If anyone has any suggestions on how we can get around this problem i would love to chat with you. I do want to keep Cheeky Drinks going and i love being an organiser but it is getting more difficult due to the large number of people in this group.
Anyway, Friday is going to be great!!!! Can't wait to catch up with all my Cheeky Drinks friends. There will be signs up directing you and the door staff at both Cloudland and The Press Club know we are coming. See you on Friday.
Don't forget to come dressed in your red and green Christmas gear.
