    Last time there was only the one PSP. This time I'm guessing there might be a few more :)

    I suppose if we start turning up en masse early enough, if it does start filling up in the evening we'll already have plenty of tables for ourselves.

    What sort of time are people going to turn up? I can probably be there from lunchtime onwards ish.

    50 is a bit rude if they're only going to let us in at 9pm.

    I've found this place: http://www.citypublife.co.uk/Site/pmdetails.php

    Which looks decent, and has free hire on Saturdays. Not sure about the location though (I've no idea where it is).

    There's also this site:
    http://www.function-rooms-uk.co.uk/cgi-bin/venuelist.cgi

    Which allows you to browse through all pubs in London which have function rooms for hire. What sort of area are we looking at though? London is a big place and I've no idea where places are.

    Preferably somewhere that is accessable by more than one tube line, also preferably not one of the shit ones (Northern, Circle in particular, I'm sure Londoners could give you a more complete list).

    Am I incorrect in thinking that it wasn't running a lot recently? Is it fixed now?

    /hasn't got a clue what he is talking about

    From a purely selfish perspective, anywhere on the Bakerloo line would be great!

    Northern Line has its problems due to the fact it's the most used, the times we use it for pubmeets it's usually alright. Plus it's convenient for those who come in from the south due to Waterloo.

    Like me... ;-)

    I don't think I've ever used the Northern line actually. Only times I've ever been over in Euston were the recent geekmeets and I got there on the Victoria line once, and the Hammersmith and City the other time.

    Anyway, most places are fine. I just have a dislike for Earl's Court and the district line back up to Edgware Road.

    How long is the second room open until? Didn't they boot us out at about 10 last time?
    There was a Morrissey after party booked in, that's why we got the boot :D

    I think we should still go with this place, at 9 the place will start to get a bit jumpy so best that we get our own wee drinking gaff around then ;)

    Plubs

    Certainly wouldn't mind the Fox again but 50 seems a bit steep for having the room for a little bit after 9pm. All us non Londoners will have to clear off early to catch our last trains, and even earlier because we'll have to go through Earl's Court.

    Ideally somewhere that's got one of them shiny new late licenses would be nice, of course... :)

    Believe it or not, it's probably easier for you to get home than it is for me and rutty, and we only live in Zone 2. But the trains are infrequent, we're not on a tube line and the trains only go from Liverpool Street and stop at 1am.

    If we're getting somewhere with screens, is anyone taking their 360's?

    They allow smoking weed in pubs nowadays?


    Anyways, if we only get in by 9pm - does it still close at the ridiculous hour of 11pm or have you lot finally sorted yourselves out? :)

    I think that translates as : "Bring your pepper spray."

    That was your plan all along wasn't it?

    Now now, no one mentioned smoking in the pub.
    We can do as last time, where we all congregated on the sidewalk ouside the pub.

    It'll be the Fox in West Kensington as suggested earlier, someone might need to go and pay them unless I can pay over the phone. It'll probably work out at 2 each or thereabouts

    So if you don't want me to do this you'd better let me know fairly soon!!!
