I haven't gone and booked a pub for us yet. I'll be doing that and making an announcement tomorrow. You (all) have until then to make requests, otherwise I'll just pick the next one out of my hat.

It's probably a bit short notice to arrange that, but maybe the organisers of the last tech meet might be able to rustle something up?

Two socials in one week, I like the way you think!

Our social venues tend to be grown-ups decompressing after with with surprising quantities of beer. While we're all a well-behaved friendly bunch and we welcome all comers, an 8yo would probably feel somewhat out of place and get bored quickly.

There is of course the possibility of finding a more family-friendly venue for a non-Thursday social, but I'm not sure where to suggest.
