Just testing the water on this one!
I find January and February dreary months, so how about a games evening with convivial company, in a nice warm pub that offers good food?
For those who don't know, "Rummykub" is a game for 2-4, played with numeric, coloured tiles. In essence it is very simple to learn, well it is for age 7 and upwards! One quickly gets skilful and then the game becomes much more complex. Be warned it can become addictive!
If Rummykub isn't your thing, then how about a game or two of cards? As always, I am open to ideas!
