>> 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 today!

See you there! Léon
