> The April social of the London Perl Mongers is next Thursday, 2nd
> April 2009. We're going to the King and Queen, a pub with delicious
> real ale in Fitzrovia. We have the upstairs room from 6:00pm.
> The nearest tube is Goodge St. on the Northern Line, but it's a short walk from:
> * Oxford Circus on the central, bakerloo and victoria lines,
> * Great Portland St. on the everything-else line
> * Warren street, Euston Square, Tottenham Court Road, Regents Park on
> lines overlapping with the above.
> On buses I found the 7, 8, 10, 14, 18, 24, 25, 27, 29, 30, 55, 73, 88,
> 98, 134, 205, 390, 453, C2. At this point I think listing any more[4]
> is a daft idea. Needless to say it's not short of bus links. Anything
> going up Oxford street or TCR will be fine.
> Drinks:
>  - Tasty real ale
>  - Usual gas tap lagers etc.
>  - Large spirit shelf with some lovely malts and a refreshingly large
> selection of Irish Whiskey as well.
> Maps, more info, etc:

> Please note that there is no upstairs bar; people doing the kitty run
> will have to go downstairs for drinks.
> Please also note that they don't do food but the landlord is happy for
> you to bring some (or even order a takeaway). It's in the heart of
> student town (UCL), eating is not a problem.
> 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 Léon 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.

Just a gentle reminder: the London.pm Social Meeting is this Thursday.

See you there! Léon
