Since a few people have to travel and it's on a Sunday, this is mostly a "meet in the pub for the afternoon, lunch (perhaps dinner), a few pints into the evening, then toddle off home" sort of meet - just thought I'd clarify that smile.gif

Offline I'm usually called: Mata
Number of people coming so far: 2
I'll be arriving: 1 ish
I'll be leaving: Around 10:30-11ish at the latest, depending on how far we go from Victoria/Marble Arch (and how pissed I feel after getting to a pub at 1pm)
I'm up for meeting during the afternoon: That's the idea smile.gif
18 or over?: I continue to be so, despite attempts to prove otherwise.
I'm up for going for an evening meal somewhere: Yep
I'm up for going to a pub in the evening: Pubs are good
I'm up for going to a club in the evening: Nope, it's a school night.
Staying the night?: Nope, heading back to Oxfordia.
Accommodation has been arranged?: Not needed.
Can offer accommodation to others?: Only if they want to come to Oxford... So probably not unless it's really useful to someone.

Pixie has said she's coming, but she's out of the country at the moment, so she'll add herself on here when she gets back smile.gif

So, where do people suggest? The closer to Victoria, the easier for me (if no-one else has any strong preferences about where to go). Somewhere reasonably quiet-ish and not too expensive..?

Offline I'm usually called: Sam or Pixie
Number of people coming so far: 4
I'll be arriving: Either half 12 or half 1pm to Liverpool Street and then half an hour to Victoria - would personally prefer somewhere central as I am coming from East London and don't want to schlep all the way over to West.
I'll be leaving: Not sure when yet. Will check last train times. If going home to Burnham it'll be 9pm ish but if going to stay at friends probably slightly later.
I'm up for meeting during the afternoon: Yes
18 or over?: Yes
I'm up for going for an evening meal somewhere: Yes
I'm up for going to a pub in the evening: Yes
I'm up for going to a club in the evening: No
Staying the night?: No
Accommodation has been arranged?: No need.
Can offer accommodation to others?: No

OK cool smile.gif

Mata can I suggest we find somewhere fairly central so that we can all get there easily irrespective on where we are coming from? unsure.gif

Hey Lurker - you're probably the best guide to London we've got coming along. Where would you suggest?

Aw, a shame, I would like to make it but won't be in London this weekend. Have fun though! Has any meet been to the science/natural history musuem yet? They're free and fun if you guys are short for ideas. Have fun whatever you do though!

It worries me that I'm the best guide and yet I can't keep myself entertained for a weekend smile.gif

Ok, pub wise theres Sam Smith's all over the middle of town, the orginal suggestion was the Champion I believe, that's just off Oxford St. Otherwise there's at least one in Soho, the Jon Snow.

Museum row (science, nat. history, V&A) is always a good bet if it's a bit miserable, although looking at the weather forecast I'm going to throw in snowballs and snowmen in Regents Park. I was going to suggest the Cartoon museum, but it costs for entry.

And that's me out. www.timeout.com/london for all further suggestions wink.gif

First things first - what's a good central meeting point? The best bet would probably be a pub, and one right next to a tube station, to have lunch in before heading to more adventurous schemes.

Surprise f'ing surprise I'm sick again. It's not as bad as last 2 times so I'm gonna rest and relax tonight, tomorrow and Saturday and see how I feel. So sorry to let you all down AGAIN after organising/arranging yet another meet date! sad.gif

Am SO sick of feeling poorly now. Doc suggested a variety of things but may need more tests to rule out things like inflamatory bowel disease and such like.

That's no excuse Smiler, I'm gonna have to be late cause I said I'd do a pre-Christmas dinner for me, the flatmate and the flatmate's gf. Should be around by about 3 hopefully.

Pixie, I send hugs.

In terms of central pubs, I'd recommend the Champion as it's just off Oxford Circus. Also, it's just down the road from the goth pub (same chain as the one in Nottingham) although I can't remember what thats called. It's also near the Green King pub we went to for the last(?) London meet.

I'm going to have to play it by ear, the snow around here is playing hob with the trains, it maybe all clear by tomorrow, unless we get another light dusting.

I still plan to be there but it really does depend on how I feel tomorrow when I wake up. I have to take each day as it comes. Getting stressed isn't really helping me but I tend to thrive on stress so a whole lifestyle change is in the offing which is REALLY difficult. Anyhoo, as I said to Mata I'd let him know as soon as I was up and ready...or not...we'll see...fingers crossed smile.gif
