So, after all that the Citie of Yorke couldn't come through for us and
The Windmill did. With no charge. Hurrah. Apparently tipping well does
pay off. Which is nice because I like the Windmill and they do really
nice pies. Mmm. Pie.
I'll be there from 6 wearing a tshirt that says "Don't be shocked that
I've turned up for more than two meetings in a row" looking as cheerful
as a man who's return from 3 months in the colonies and is rediscovering
the joys of real ale.
As always, if it's your first time at a meeting please come and find me
and I can indulge you in our tradition of buying first-timers a drink
and maybe introduce you to people. Just because we're nice. Awwww.
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.
