a) When? Saturday 19th January or Saturday 26th January 2013.
b) Where? It boils down to two possibilities:
- If you like Wetherspoons pubs; I tend to use The Penderel's Oak on High Holborn LINK
- I also quite like the Queens Head in Acton St. (bit further on than the Water Rats, if you know the area, near KX) LINK
I've used both of these pubs for 'internet' group meetings: some of you will be familiar with the Penderel's Oak from District Dave meets and at least one of you will be aware of the Queens Head from [ringing-chat]. Both pubs have their plus points and I'm easy either way: the menu is greater in the 'Spoons but the Queens Head is a bit quieter. Both places have a rather large selection of beers.
c) What time? As this is the first ever meet: how about setting a time of about 1300? That should give those who want to plenty of time to plan getting to London, have a drink or two and then either head home or stay in the smoke.
d) What do you, dear reader, need to do? Well, in the thread below, indicate which date you would prefer and which location. There's plenty of time to discuss it. Penderels Oak is half-way between Chancery Lane and High Holborn UndergrounD stations and the Queens Head is about 5 minutes walk from Kings Cross/St Pancras.
Over to you.
