      Did anyone see this last night and pay for Emma? (Beenal?) If not, you can probably call 222 and pay by card.

      January 29, 2013

  • Julie

    Hi Emma. We all paid separately for our own meals but maybe if you call 222 restaurant on 020 7381 2322 round about lunch time you could check with them if you can pay by credit/debit card over the phone. Anyway, great to see you and hope you'll come along to another event soon. Thanks.

    Hiya, didn't realise that It was such a big event and I assumed that like every other event here, it's fine to cancel the day before. If you are concerned about numbers then maybe charging an upfront fee would be helpful.

    Furthermore, I haven't read all of the 70+ messages on here as I have other stuff to do. I signed up at the beginning and haven't checked since.

    I really hope you have a nice evening, you crazy vegans

      As the group organiser, I don't really need someone to patronise me by telling me what the group is and isn't. Besides, it's much more than an internet forum (the clue being in the word "Meetup").

      But you're right about one thing: it isn't a family gathering. Event organisers (probably) aren't your relatives. Yet despite that, they give up their time to arrange events for the members of the group. They don't ask for much in return. They don't ask for money. They don't ask for thanks. But I don't think it's too much to ask for a little common sense and common decency.

    • Robb

      It's common sense that last minute cancellations and no-shows have three effects:
      1) They inconvenience members who would like to have gone (but couldn't because the event was fully booked).
      2) They hurt restaurants who have saved us space that we don't use (which can make them reluctant to take our bookings in future).
      3) They deter event hosts from organizing future events.

      Therefore it's common decency for members to turn up at an event if they say they're going to do so. Or to give someone else a *realistic* chance to take their place (by changing their attendance *well* before the event). And if they're really unable to do so, then an apology should be the very least they can offer.

  • Tim

    Damn, thought I'd booked but evidently not... any chance of a spare place / being on a reserve list?

    January 21, 2013

    • Robb

      I'm afraid that the person who was going to take the place of Xenia's plus one now has to go and look at somewhere to live. But I'm trying to find a replacement. Beenal, would you like to mention on our Facebook wall that this event now has a few spare places? (Or would you like me to?)

      January 28, 2013

    • Robb

      OK, Viji is going to take one of the spare places. I'll add her to the list of attendees.

    Hello!! Could I possibly come along to this but not order off the set menu... really sorry.. its just £15 not including drinks is a tiny bit out of my budget, since I have a new job and they are yet to pay me! I'll eat dinner, but can't be splashing out that much money :( Ill withdraw from the guest list if this isnt ok. I do want to come though :)

    Hi all,
    I cannot make the speed games night. Anyone interested in taking my spot?

    January 27, 2013

  • Brian

    Pity you are not accepting more RSVP's or having a waiting list as I suspect more people would sign up nearer the time

    January 22, 2013

    • Robb

      Beenal, that said, do you think it would be a good idea to set the RSVP limit to , say, 20 then enable an automatic waiting list?

      January 22, 2013

    • Brian

      Ce la vie. Sorry I caused a commotion. See you next Monday Beenal.

    Hi Beenal, sent you an email about the speed games. Hope you received it.

    January 18, 2013

  • Kalpana

    Hey Beenal. Is there any parking near the venue?

    January 7, 2013

    • Brian

      Free parking outside after 6.30pm I think

      January 7, 2013

  • Kalpana

    Bernal how about a bit of Pictionary?

    January 7, 2013

  • Dave Sohanpal

    • Dave Sohanpal

  • Zofia

    Beenal, I am really scared now...vegetarians and blood??? 222 was the first vegetarian/vegan place I have ever went to and I loved the food, but from what I remeber it is a rather small place...unless they made some extensions (haven't been there for the last two years or so). Cannot think of any games at the moment, but give me more time...

    January 4, 2013

  • Sebastian

    I remember the name of the game I told you about: it's called "privacy" not sure, if the first meeting of this kind is the right place for a game like this... It's called privacy for a reason. ;) I'd love to play it with 12 people someday. :D

    January 4, 2013

    • Sebastian

      Well, not too much speed. Unfortunately. Another speedy game, if not the speediest of them all, is Ligretto. There are no turns, just getting rid of cards.:D

      January 4, 2013

  • Robb

    Hi Beenal, I sent you an email about how to get this announced. If you could follow the steps in the message, we can let everyone know...

    January 2, 2013
