This, of course, went horribly wrong

1: I was foolish to even suggest that there might be bottled beers. I was
   hoping to lure people who might not otherwise have attended. While this
   may have worked, it also meant that many others decided to try them.*

2: (At least one type of) bottled beer was £3.50 a bottle.

Kittens blead. Er, the kitty bleads.
So we switched to the draft stout.

Which is fine. Useful to know, as it looks like we will be returning:

Next month is The Antelope [7th June]. Which has barrels and barrels of
nice Fullers beer, and some lovely armchairs.

* It probably did. IIRC we had five new attendees. And more women than Daves,
  for the second meeting in a row. Although I'm not sure if this is something
  to be *that* happy about, as there was a time about 4 years ago when we
  about 1/6th of the attendees were female, for months in a row. Which still
  isn't great, but it's a lot better than most open source groups.
** Like that's going to happen :-)
