This is tonight!

It's our 10th anniversary, we are going to try for a group photo (no
idea how this is going to work), I believe we have beers being
delivered to the pub(?) that are special limited edition 10th
annivesary super Perl beers![1] Leon is going to be wearing his super
10th anniversary t-shirt with glitter(!) and in other catwalk related
news, Nick and Evil will be modelling the latest must have fashion, 
in the new Perl 6 winter (Christmas) season collection.

We shall also have the new LPW tsar present so you can hassle them
with requests for muffins etc. (They don't have a firm date yet).

As always feel free to show your appreciation to the pub minion via
reviews on RGL of the pub and cidah's.

(If anyone is working in the Soho area, please email me offlist before


[1] Thanks to ElPenguin, who is also worthy of cidah's.
