Oh my, is it Social time already? What happened to September? I swear
the last social was only a couple of weeks ago. Maybe I'm getting
confused in my old age. What year is this? Who's president?
Umm, so yeah. October social then.
Once again we'll be visiting the graceful Antelope. Feared hunter of the
serengeti and the only mammal with gills.
Also, a pub near Sloane Square.
We'll be upstairs - chillin' out, maxin' and actin' all cool. Or
You may also note that it's on the same day as the Google Open Source
And conveniently the pub is within easy walking distance of The
Googleplex (London Edition).
Also, as I never tire of pointing out - please, if it's your first time
then come, grab me (I'll be cowering nervously in the corner holding a
stuffed camel) and get me to buy you a drink. It gives me an enormous
sense of well being and means I can introduce you to some people.
See you next week,
Love and kisses,
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.
Eaton Terrace is just off the part of The Kings Road north east of
Sloane Square. The Royal Court theatre is on the east side of Sloane
Sloane Square (District/Circle) 1/10 Mile
