It always happens, I book the pub way in advance, think I have plenty of
time to do the announcement and then forget to do it until the Sunday
before. Bad me! No Cookie!
Aaaaaanyway. So after the last couple of months' worth of influx of new
people (I think we had 10 first timers last month which was awesome on
the one had but wallet ruining for me on the other :) we're trying a new
pub this month.
It's called the College Arms and we've got the basement lounge. The beer
is tasty, the food good (The College Club is especially excellent) and
there's Wifi. And a pool table.
So come along, make sure they know we're worth having back. And if its
your first time then please feel free to try and bankrupt me again. I'll
probably be sitting clutching a stuffed camel - please let me introduce
myself, buy you a drink and then show you around.
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.
The pub is on Store Street which runs between Gower Street and
Tottenham Court Road about half way up both.
Tottenham Court Road, Warren Street and Russell Square are all close.
Covent Garden, Euston, Euston Square and Leicester Square aren't too
Loads of buses go nearby.
We'll be in the downstairs room.
Serves Ale (Spitfire, Greene King IPA and Brakespeare), cider
(Strongbow and Bullmers) and food (including quite a bit of
vegetarian food and a really good College Club sandwich).
Has Wifi and iPub (the system that allows you to hear the tele via
