    Okay, well maybe not Geekfest.. heh-heh-heh :p

    But this Saturday (27th) at 2pm my goodself, britboy and WinterMute (95% on) are meeting in the bar with no name on Endell St (Covent Garden/WC2) to converse over some fine drinks.

    Below is a map showing the location of this bar (big pink circle)

    It's close enough to Covent Garden tube (the green circle on the map) (5 mins), Tottenham Court Road (5 mins) and Leicester Square (7mins) to make it within easy reach for people.

    The bar itself, doesn't actually have a name on the outside... although there are small signs which say 'cafe/bar', but it's cool and mellow, shouldn't be too busy (a good thing when meeting people and you have no real idea what they look like that is! heh!) isn't too expensive and is good for talking in because it doesn't have really loud music...

    So anyway... if you're in London this Saturday, and find yourself at 2pm with nothing to do, pop along... it'd be good to put faces to names and I'm of the opinion the more the merrier!!

    To get there from Cambridge Circus, if you walk up Shaftesbury Avenue (Pizza Hut and O' Neil's side) towards Holborn, follow Shaftesbury Ave all the way around (You'll go past Neale St on your right) and follow the road around to the right.... where you'll be presented with a big junction... the bar with no name will be facing you on Endell Street, it occupies the whole corner... you really can't miss it!!

    Here's a link for streetmap picture

    http://www.streetmap.co.uk/newmap.s...et,+WC2&searchp=newsearch.srf&mapp=newmap.srf

    it's basically where the Sports Centre is located on the map at the end of Endell Street. If I get there first, I'll sit by the window with a Apple logo on my bag... so it'll be visible from the street... Mulder style! heh-heh! or you can see a picture of what I look like in the Picture thread.

    Any prob's, queries etc etc, then drop me either a PM or email!!

    Hope to see some Londonites then!!

    Wicked!!

    heh-heh, that would be really freaky wouldn't it... a big X on the window of a bar with no name... :eek: :p :p

    I'll likely be there first cos' I'll be shopping for new pumps on Neale St, so I'll grab a seat by the door/window and I'll stick a white Apple logo on me bag so it can be seen from the street... (or I may slinky one on the door if I can... heh-heh)

    EIther way, you can't miss me... I'm 6'3, with a moby cut, nose and lip ring and built like a rugby player... so in other words... I stand out!! heh-heh!!

    Cool... we don't need commitments here and now... people can just turn up around that time.... and, well I know I'll be there... *crosses fingers and hopes that others turn up, fearing ending up looking like a billy no buds otherwise* heh-heh!!

    Should be a giggle.... depending on how things turn out... if edesign can make it too, we can go down and see David Blaine..... heh-heh-heh!!!

    Well, X marks the spot.....:rolleyes:

    Wintermute will probably be recognisable by the iPod he carries round with him. It's how I knew him when we met up a couple of weeks ago! I'm deffinitely going to be there. I have a meeting which doesn't finish until 1pm, so I should be there round about on time. It will be nice to meet more people from MR. As you say, the more the merrier.

    Nose and lip ring.......:eek:

    You're just being sore because you're not the be-all and end-all in my life. Besides, that was just a bad day for me mobile-wise. I wanted to get rid of the thing.

    By the way, what happend to the picture you guys took? Any chance you could email me a copy?

    Wintermute> OK, *now* I'm worried. I just hope there are going to be some girls at this bar we're going to :eek: ;)

    Hey evo, 'Pool are at Charlton this weekend, come on over, we'll go down the Valley, hang out with the boys in the Bar With No Name, tease the Milwall crowd (Combat 18?, oh go on then...)

    Bring your own choice in personal weaponry:D :D ;)

    We'll sink a few for the US crowd.

    Love the new Tar.

    True, true. You just got me worried, what with airing your albert and all.....:eek: ;) Anyway, it tends to be a nicer atmosphere where members of the fairer sex are around. Why do you think many night-clubs offer free entrance to women?

    I love the new 'tar evo :p
