    A group of friendly London mac users are going out for our semi-regular monthly drink up on friday! You know you want to come too ;)

    Its a bunch of mates meeting up on friday evening (14th july). We all know each other through various forums and mac-related means. If you are in london on friday fire me an email or reply to this post, or just turn up to the apple store between 6:30 or 7, then we go out and have fun. Who could ask for a more perfect night out?

    The 14th is probably do-able this time round.

    Just promise there's no chance we'll be locked in Regent's Park... ;)

    Why didn't you guys come to our picnic? Or maybe you did, and I just don't remember... :eek: :D

    I might be up for it but as always, I have to see how the week pans out workwise. Many potential pitfalls possibly await me between now and Friday afternoon.

    So it's probably do-able if they promise no chance of a lock-in. Definitely do-able if they promise a lock-in eh Applespider?

    Careful guy's once caged she can be a handful!:D

    Incidentally... where in the Apple store between 6.30 and 7pm? Or do we just look for a random group of guys who are talking to one another rather than trying to get onto a Mac?

    Glad to see we might get a good turn out. last time i mentioned this a few months ago i don't really think i gave much notice :)

    I think i may nock up some kind of sign to hold up, so that you guys can spot us. If for some reason that doesn't work all the computers there are on the net, so you could send me an email (i am geeky enough to have my own blackberry) so i won't be out of touch.

    at the top of the stairs, back row of the theater seems like a good spot? there are comfy seats and we can listen to apple propaganda while waiting for more people to turn up.

    Then we head off out and wander around soho until we are so thirsty we just have to stop and drink and chat. It's a pretty top night all round!

    I could possibly make it.. depends on what time I'm done at work, and then if I'm feeling foolish enough to drink the night before a stag weekend...

    You bringing the the Pimms+Tequila™?:D

    So far my week has been: Monday - avoiding the gym, Tuesday in the pub for a catch with a friend/ex-workmate, Wednesday in a pub for a works leaving do, Thursday in a pub for housemates birthday, Friday - should be sensible and regain energy levels, Saturday and Sunday - being hammered in Birmingham.

    There may be a re-occuring theme in there somewhere....

    Oh hells no. It's my foolish younger brothers precurser to doom.

    Sounds to me that Friday could be a dangerous case of going cold turkey...:p

    Might not have the Pimms but will have the jugs... :D

    I likely come along. Not sure if I can make 6:30 or 7 though, because I work outside of London. Which pubs or bars do you intend to go to?

    :eek: :D sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet

    Advanced warning though.... I feel like complete carp today. Was out until 2 am drinking Bulmers for the first couple hours, then following it up with Bulmers + sambuca chasers. I really feel a bit Obb™.

    If I make it through a 4 hours strategy meeting without hallucinating, I'll do my damnest to be there.....

    do we have any idea if this is a one pub all evening type drink up, a pub crawl or what?

    because i don't look all that 18, i have ID but it's an NUS card which is not always accepted and if we go to many places it's more than likely to cause issues, however if it's a one place thing it'll be fine.
