Hi,

So trouble is I sort of suggested this but can't do the Monday meet up... Was wondering if that was set in stone or if anyone can do Weds 18th.

Different Date

jeni_dc's picture

I don't mind a different date, but the 18th conflicts with Brighton Farm, and since that's the last one before Christmas I don't want to miss that one.

I'm in Amsterdam Monday but

I'm in Amsterdam Monday but totally game if it's another day :)

Food then Farm?

Food then Farm?

Still don't know if I'll be able to escape to somewhere hot yet so will be there if not!

What about that newish place on the front that does burgers etc. which is supposed to be nice? Will google...

hmmm...

emma.maria's picture

Food will be a bit rushed if everyone is going off to Farm after. I won't be going as I'm not a freelancer and it would be nice to make a nice jolly evening of it :( what about Tuesday?

Burgers

emma.maria's picture

Hobgoblin pub has flipping amazing burgers!
There is a Meat Liquor in Brighton now, this needs to be investigated.
Lucky Beach is a burger place on the beach but its opening hours aren't regular.

I love burgers <3

Im up for a meal - need to

kevster's picture

Im up for a meal - need to nail a date son though as runnig out! Can do monday or wed at the mo...

kevster's picture

Can't Do the 17th or the 20th

guy_schneerson's picture

Can't Do the 17th or the 20th all other days are good for me

Ah I thought you were talking

lilGemVinny's picture

Ah I thought you were talking about the 2nd Monday of the month! If it's 3rd I can do.

Meat Liquor is amazing!! Hob Goblin is also amazing - The Troll's pantry burgers - NOM!

Also can't do the 17th...

Shoseki's picture

Not sure about other dates but as long not the weekend should be fine... though Wednesday also the farm...

Ok....

emma.maria's picture

What have you caused Richard Jones!? :)

I think it should be Weds as everyone can make it but some people will be leaving early to go to Farm.

Dates for all!

jeni_dc's picture

As always with these things the dates are going to be tricky. I'm free any time except for the 18th. I'd rather not eat then go to the farm since as Emma said, I'd rather make more of a night of it as well. And by the time we meet up, get seated served, etc, us farmers wouldn't be getting there until kinda late.

Sooooo, not entirely sure what to do about the date. How's the 19th then?

For food, I was thinking more of a sit down for a meal kinda place, instead of a queuing for a burger at the back of a pub kind of place, so I'm not a big fan of Hobgoblin/Trolls Pantry for this. And besides, Burger Bros has better burgers! ;-)

We could give Meat Liquor a shot or somewhere else that does nice burgers. Then there's always the usual Chilli Pickle or Indian Summer, or maybe even La Choza for Mexican. We could also try the Thai place on Kensington Gardens, and then we could bring our own booze.

19th

stevepurkiss's picture

At the moment 19th (Thurs) looks like the only date all who have responded so far can make it - Thai on Kensington Gardens sounds good, keep meaning to go there as everyone says is good

It is good! Very tasty!

It is good! Very tasty!

chilli pickle wasnt fab last

kevster's picture

chilli pickle wasnt fab last xmas. im easy on where we go tho, agree with not rushing it on wed. Who cant do monday 16th? Also Im happy to put down a deposit if we know where...

I'm with you

jeni_dc's picture

IMHO Chilli Pickle isn't all that great anyway, It's just easy to accommodate larger groups.

OK any reason NOT to to thurs

kevster's picture

Not sure if we'll get everyone

jeni_dc's picture

Trying to get everyone in on this might not be possible, but I'm all for the 16th or 19th. I figured originally the 16th would be the best since it's the day we'd meet anyway, so I would hope people wouldn't schedule anything else! It's a repeating event in my calendar ;-)

We could push it up to next week as well, if that's better for everyone.

True Jeni - I can do the 16th

kevster's picture

True Jeni - I can do the 16th still.. Richard cant me thinks...

I can make the 16th if there's room for another :)

Booking for 10 sounds good to

jeni_dc's picture

Booking for 10 sounds good to me. We'll most likely pick up one or two along the way and if anyone else wants to go hopefully we can then add a few more.

Shall I give them a call then

kevster's picture

Shall I give them a call then - see if they need a depo? At 8 seats so far inc 8ball...

Yeah, that's cool if you want

jeni_dc's picture

Yeah, that's cool if you want to do it. It's not a big place so at this rate we might end up taking over the entire place!

@miggle we wouldn't be able

alickmighall's picture

@miggle we wouldn't be able to do the 19th, as we have our Xmas meal that night - i did have 16th in my diary (as may have louis/steve/ian) but as to whether i can make it then anyway would depend on how many passes I have left at that point. I'm almost out, while my wife still holds a full hand...

Ah but you hold the "its xmas

kevster's picture

Ah but you hold the "its xmas and I bring home the bacon card" which should never be undervalued...

Alick if you can confirm your numbers asap I may need to book more...

Lurgy prevents me, I'm afraid! I have let the restaurant know, so they are now expecting 13. Craig, if you need to jump in, their phone is 207444; ask to add one to the booking at 7pm for Kevin.

Have a good one and hope to catch up in the new year.
