Christmas thing?

opdavies's picture

We've done a Christmas meal and/or drinks for the last couple of years. Would anyone be interested in doing the same this year?

If we want to do a meal somewhere, we should probably get numbers and something booked a fair time in advance.

Yes, I'll set up a Google Doc or something where people can put their name down and we'll get something booked.

Date

nicrodgers's picture

Have we decided on a date? If not, we could set up a quick Doodle first to find the date that works best for people?

Sounds like a good idea!

Sophie.SK's picture

Sounds like a good idea! Guess we shouldn't be doing this on the third Wednesday in December ...

Bristologist

opdavies's picture

I've emailed the Bristologist to see if they can give me some potential dates that people can decide from. There's a Christmas menu on their website (http://www.thebristologist.co.uk), but it's a bit pricey at £25 per head.

Sorry, I've been a bit buy lately with new job etc.

I'm potentially in..

..so long as it's on a date that I can make. Also I've got weird dietary requirement so I may give the restaurant a call.

Dates from the Bristologist

opdavies's picture

So, the Bristologist have come back with the 14th, 15th, 19th, 20th, 21st, 22nd and 23rd.

I'm assuming that it's just their Christmas menu too, as that's what they've sent along with the dates, but I'm double-checking, and also if it's based on certain times.

Hi All, I've made a Doodle

Hi All,

I've made a Doodle for the available dates: http://doodle.com/poll/ik8tp456as8hu9h5

Good idea

Good idea, Tom.

I did sign up but it's a

Sophie.SK's picture

I did sign up but it's a little late notice now, I have too much to do before Christmas. Maybe in the new year?

I tend to agree, I think new year would be good.

tim_marsh's picture

I tend to agree, I think new year would be good. I havent got much free time before Christmas.

How about something for the week of the 12th of January - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/WindowsForBusiness/End-of-IE-support celebrating the end of Microsofts support for IE ?

That way its not just a meal in January, its a reason to celebrate our lives getting (hopefully) easier in the long term...

How about Wednesday the 13th?

How about Wednesday the 13th?

Sounds good

opdavies's picture

I'm around on the 13th, so I should be able to make it.

A week before lightning talks. :)

December 21st was the most

opdavies's picture

December 21st was the most popular choice out of the original dates. Maybe add the January 13th to the Doodle?

I've updated the Doodle to

I've updated the Doodle to include the 13th of Jan.

I'm not sure what I did, but people might have to put their whole availability in again :/
