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 
fun everybody!

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.
