Deck the halls with, err, pumpkins and fake cobwebs.
No, wait. That's next month.
Narrowly missing both the annual "Burn the effigy of a Catholic" fest
*and* the chance to been Thursday the first and thus level up to be a
Heretics Meet (aligned Neutral/Chaos, gains +4 flagon of Inebriation),
the November Social AMBUSHES us like a sneaky Tiger. Albeit a sneaky
tiger that's utterly predictable in its movements.
This month we're going back to The Windmill - mainly because I crave
pie, Hot Pimms and Double Chocolate stout ... not necessarily in that
Due to unforseen problems (namely, not being within 6000 miles of
London) I've missed at least the last 2 Socials so I shall there, nice
and early full of vim, vigour and the usual witty bandinage. Come! See
what working from home for a month does to a man.
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.
Directions from Oxford Circus
Walk south out of the tube station onto Regent Street (not onto Oxford
Street and directly away from the church). After about 200m, turn
right down Conduit Street (roughly opposite Hamley's) and then turn
right again down a smaller road called Mill Street, where you'll find
the pub. Directions from Piccadilly Circus
Come out of the station and head north up Regent Street. After about
500m turn left onto Conduit Street (which is approximately opposite
Hamley's.) After this turn right onto a smaller road called Mill
Street, where you'll find the pub.
Directions from Green Park
Turn east (left) out of the station, and walk for about two hundred
meters. Shortly before the Royal Academy of Arts, on your left will be
Old Bond Street. Walk up here about 300 meters till you'll get to
Conduit Street on your right. Walk down here, and take the second left
down a smaller road called Mill Street, where you'll find the pub.
Directions from Bond Street
Turn east (right) out of the station. After about a hundred meters you
should come to New Bond Street on your right. Walk down here for about
