    Bottled beer? Pizza? Hashtag? Sign of some real food for £5 rather than cheese puffs? Come on!

      Thanks for the feedback @Kaitlin, I try and eat the paleo/caveman diet which is nothing processed, the selection of food was biscuits and cheese puffs, so I didn't eat. I put together a healthy selection of food at our recent event for @StartUpFit last minute from Tescos (it is possible when plans fall down), see a few photos from: https://www.facebook.c...­ if you'd like to talk about healthy catering it's an area I know a lot about and am happy to talk. @CavemanKlaus

      Betcha cavemen drank beer before they drank wine... and that beer postdates the paleolithic by a few hundred thousand years. Do you mean neolithic (about 10,000 BCE)? Or is the wine just for show?

    Good Meetup. The food was disappointing though. Bit disorganised at the start in terms of what we were supposed to do.
