In this group, events are run by all members, there are no fixed hosts and no membership fees.
If you are a young person who enjoys meeting people in the region's finest restaurants, traditional pubs and bars serving good authentic cuisine or good handpulled beers and ciders or serving fine wines or even ports, then this is the group for you.
We aim to meet once or twice per month, varying the venue to try out different pubs and bars and eateries in Birmingham, Walsall, Harborne, Sutton Coldfield, Moseley, Dudley, Lichfield, Wolverhampton, Bromsgrove, and all the other accessible towns we haven't mentioned. What we are not about is promoting pressure groups or arranging drinking nights at someone's cherished local which would be unfair to the rest of our membership.
Some of our events will be geared towards interesting or unusual cuisine, some will involve festivals, some will involve walking between several pubs, some will involve traditional pub games, some will involve trips to wine-sellers or breweries, some will be run in partnership with other groups. All will involve socializing.
It is intended that event organization will be rotated amongst members, and that public transport arrangements will be available within reason for all locations selected. Therefore we look to you as members to arrange and host events for the group, in keeping with the purpose of the group.
Saturday Afternoon & Evening need to be set aside
