It's the London.pm Christmas Do that means 2 things to make any Pub
Minion extra specially happy - rammed pubs and a completely
unpredictable number of people turning up to the socials. Super party
For that reason we're going to that old London.pm regular - The Windmill
well that reason plus the fact that
- They do *really* good pies. Mmm. Pie.
- And sandwiches
- They also do Hot Pimms
- And Christmas Pudding flavoured beer
So come along - eat some mince pies that I shall provide because, well
I'm nice. And Sainsburys are doing a 2-for-1 at the moment. And, because
it's christmas, the LPW organisers will be doing their modern hip-hop
version of The Dance of the Sugarplum Fairies.
Because it's christmas we don't actually have a reservation because all
the pubs wanted cash but the manager is an old friend of ours and has
'encouraged' us to turn up and occupy the back room as early as
possible. I shall tehrefore try and get there before 6 and I encourage
you to do the same. Because otherwise I'll be lonely. *sob*
Now the standard blurb ...
Social meetings are a chance for people to meet up face to face for a
quiet drink (alcoholic or not) A fair chunk of Perl is talked at the
meetings, but also people who have no interest in the language often
pop along to socialise. There's no charge to enter, no agenda, and we
tend to think of it more as pleasant drinks rather than any serious
People normally turn up after work, and many stay until closing time.
Food is normally consumed at the pub by those wanting nourishment
though sometimes small groups of people head off for food either
during or after the meeting.
