I'm on one of my periodic jaunts brining succour and comfort to the less 
fortunate individuals in the colonies and had completly forgotten about 
the imminency of the next social. 

In my defence, here in Cillykon Vallaiz the natives use a primitive form 
of time management separated into units of Twitters and Meetings - with 
approximately 4 Twitters per meeting although it appears to be 
variable and subject to whim.

So thanks to ex pub-minion Kake for stepping upa nd attempting to find a 
pub that will take us at short notice. We're heading back to Dirty Dicks


which is right opposite Liverpool Street station  and we'll be down in 
the cellar bar (with a guarantee of no mixups from the manager this 

Last time we were there we dicovered that mixing half a pint of the Bana 
Beer with half a pint of the Double Chocolate resulted in an awesome 
mixture that was a delicious as it was deadly. 

Social meets are a chance for the various members of the group to meet 
up face to face and chat with each other about things - both Perl and 
non Perl - and newcomers are more than welcome The monthly meets tend to 
be bigger than the other ad hoc meetings that take place at other times 
and we make sure that they're in easy to get to locations and the pub 
serves food (meaning that people can eat in the bar if they want to.)  
They normally start around 6.30pm (or whenever people get there after 
work) and a group tends to be left come closing time.

If you're a new comer or other first timer (even if you've been lurking 
on the mailing list or on IRC) then please seek me out - we have a 
tradition that the leader of this motley crew buys the new people a 
drink (alcoholic or not, either's fine) and introduce them to people.



  Opposite Liverpool Street station.

By Tube

  Liverpool Street Tube couldn't be much closer.

  If you're feeling perverse then Aldgate, Mansion House, Moorgate and 
  Shoreditch are all within walking distance.

By Bus

  Oh, so many buses - check them out from the TFL map
