Music & Film Quiz at the Firebug, Leicester

We've not done it in a long while, but it was always fun.

If you like music this is definitely your thing - starts at 9pm but we can have a few drinks beforehand to get warmed up. They also do some very good reasonably priced meals, if you're coming straight from work.

If you're driving we advise you get there as early as you can as parking can be a bit tricky.

See you there!

    Unfortunately due to weather, traffic, and circling around for somewhere to park for a good 20+ mins I was late, however, I DID have my phone on and I received no call (number posted on every Meetup).

    I was out of credit so I was unable to call you. It's a two-way street. I feel any reasonable person would have hung on for more than 5 mins before leaving, especially after going to the trouble to arrange a babysitter and travel down. I also feel any reasonable person would have made a call to find out if there was an issue.

    I was exasperated at the delays but my first words to Kevin and Dawn was that I was annoyed that I might have missed you, then I had a good look round to find you! As Kevin mentioned, it would be easier for someone to recognise you if you put a picture on your profile.

    I apologise for being late, and your disappointment, but I am not about to take abuse for your unreasonable behaviour. ALL members are warmly welcomed, if they bother to stick around.

      Well, now I see why you joined meet up...plenty of time on your hands.

      blimey, you do whittle on, the amusing thing is that you appear to be having a breakdown on an internet forum. Your facebook must be really amusing :)

    Just thought I'd let you know I removed Katherine from the group. It's quite obvious that after kicking up such a stink we were never going to see her again, and I think she's done enough venting, despite the apology and full explanation.

    I'll give her her due, I'm not the greatest host in the world - usually a bit late, and I prefer not to have a big red and white MeetUp sign up for all to see as in my mind it should look and feel like a meeting of friends rather than a class.

    I put my number on the contact info of all the Meetups I arrange, so please don't be shy to use it.

    I was the first person to arrive, at around 7:20, due to traffic and there being no parking spaces nearby.

    From your own admission, you arrived for a 7:00pm meetup, at 7:03, and had left the pub by 7:08. Your profile does not have any photo, so anyone arriving had no idea of who to look for, and there were no single people at any of the tables when I arrived (unless you were the 20 something year old girl laid on the sofa).

    How you can class the group as being cliquey, and unfriendly, when you didn't even meet anyone is bewildering, problems with organising, then maybe you have a point, but as Kaye drove from Nuneaton (getting lost on the way), then I'm sure it was just an oversight to remember to stop on the way to give you a call.

    If you had stayed around a bit longer, then we would have made you feel welcome, but you didn't really give the group a chance. The quiz starts at 9pm, so maybe enquiring what time people would be there would have been a better idea.

      Blimey, don't you have a chip on your shoulder.

      At no point did I state it was well organised, perhaps you need to read my post properly before ranting about it. I am also not an organiser, never stated I was, just was the first to arrive, so again, actually reading before ranting would have been better. If you feel so self conscious sitting on your own, for all of 5 minutes, assuming that the world considers you a loony or an alcoholic, perhaps you need to look more at your own state of self image, than complain about organisation. I'm sure you'll find much happiness in your other group.
