What we're about
Upcoming events (1)
(The quorum for this is 6 people signed up at 4pm on the previous day, otherwise it will be cancelled.) Unusually (for various reasons), this month's social Scrabble is on a Saturday, but as usual we will be at The Trafalgar Brewing Company which is in Wan Chai North at the Causeway Centre, with a nice covered, but airy, outdoor terrace and a spacious & comfy interior; we will be outside if the weather is not too hot & sticky for it, otherwise indoors. Although the time is shown as 1pm, people are welcome to come later if that fits better for you - you'll just need to wait a few minutes for a game to finish so you can join the next one. If you plan to arrive after 4pm then call or message Paul to check how long the event looks like going on (though it's very rare for the last games to start before about 6pm). The Trafalgar Brewing Company is an English-style pub; they will have the weekend/holiday brunch set menu until 4pm, and the full a la carte menu all afternoon, which is traditional pub grub with prices ranging from $65 (for snacks) up to $400+ for steaks and all sorts in between. There are several choices for vegetarians. They have real beers on draught, over 20 choices of English ales & ciders in bottles, plus all the usual pub drinks. As our group sponsor, Trafalgar offers us a 20% discount on food and drinks (which will also already be at the lower happy hour price before discount until 8pm). Please update your RSVP if you can no longer make it, so I don't end up holding tables empty unnecessarily. IMPORTANT NOTE: Trafalgar isn't a charity - they sponsor our group (meaning that they pay for the cost of running this Meetup site), but, in return, if you come then please be prepared to buy at least 2 drinks or some food. Please do not bring outside food or drink to the venue. To get to The Trafalgar Brewing Company see the map by clicking on the location above. It is located on the 1/F (2/F to Americans) walkway on the eastern side of the Causeway Centre. By bus, the Wanchai Ferry Pier bus terminus is close by. For buses along Hennessy Road get off at a stop near Stewart Road, walk along Stewart Road towards the harbour, then take the bridge to cross Gloucester Road to the Causeway Centre. By MTR, Wanchai Exit A5, take the highwalk to Immigration Tower, then turn basically right, through Central Plaza, past the Great Eagle Centre & Harbour Centre and on to the Causeway Centre.
