The social is this evening. There's less snowpocalpse too.

A Perl Celebrity is coming to London so we'll be celebrating with him
at the social. Yuval Kogman (nothingmuch), one of the Moose cabal,
will be in town for the dim sum and the social.

> It's a short walk from both London Bridge and Tower Hill stations.
> People who prefer buses have the choice of the RV1, 42, 47, 78, 188,
> 343, or 381.
> Maps, more info, etc:
> The pub has a full range of well-kept Adnams beers, Aspall cider, and
> good food.  The upstairs bar will be staffed for us.
> Standard blurb:
> Social meets are a chance for the various members of the group to meet
> up face to face and chat with each other about things - both Perl and
> non-Perl - and newcomers are more than welcome.  The monthly meets
> tend to be bigger than the other ad hoc meetings that take place at
> other times, and we make sure that they're in easy to get to locations
> and the pub serves food (meaning that people can eat in the bar if
> they want to). They normally start around 6.30pm (or whenever people
> get there after work) and a group tends to be left come closing time.
> If you're a newcomer or other first timer (even if you've been lurking
> on the mailing list or on IRC) then please seek Leon out - we have a
> tradition that the leader of this motley crew buys the new people a
> drink (orange or not, either's fine) and introduces them to people.

See you there, Léon
