Love it, hate it, or ignore it, Christmas is nearing again. So come and have a lovely evening with us for our last official meet of the year, I hope you can join the group for a dinner (and optional drinks) to meet more of our group, old and new, and celebrate with us another year of great meets and the group going from strength to strength on the 2nd Friday of December.
Regular bars will be crazy busy and probably not taking bookings for tables; a dinner at a chosen restaurant is our traditional way to celebrate the year and meet people in a slightly different place to normal with food as the lubricant for ice-breaking and chat. You'll still be able to mingle a little during the meal or as its closing down, and there's always a group headed to a club or for later drinks afterwards if you want to boogie without it being a weekday after.
As we need to book seats please be sure about keeping your rsvp updated as it gets nearer the time - and please not last-minute if you can help it. This is important, due to time, money (from the deposit) and effort of the organiser and other members. People who rsvp and don't turn up will hurt their ability to come to future booked events. Also note that anyone still on a waiting list by time of the event should NOT attend (except by personal arrangement with the organiser) - you need to manually change your rsvp to Yes when space opens up (meetup should notify you by email).
The menus haven't changed much from last year; they don't have online versions to send us but the same items are there from 2012 menus I had below (only tiny differences, and most things same price, some had gone up by 10p,20p or £1 max since 2012). These word documents are in the "Files" section for our group (in "More" menu, middle of the white bar just below our big group name at top of page).
2012 set menu (3 choices, £16.80 to 23.80) (http://files.meetup.com/661860/xmas12setmenu.doc)
2012 main (regular) menu (http://files.meetup.com/661860/xmas12main%20menu.doc) - only minor (<£1 it seems) price differences, many prices the same, with same items.
PS: There is no regular 4th Thursday meet this month as usual for Christmas, as its too awkwardly placed.
