If the meetup is near this (Kentish Town) I might be able to come before or after.

That looks interesting, cillit - any clues as to who it might be?

I think I'm available on the 8th - still on for the Bricklayers?

AFAIK it's still on for the 8th at the Bricklayers. I'll be there as well.

I'm in. Are we talking about the Bricklayer's Arms near Tottenham Court Road? If so, isn't that place rather tiny?

Yep, The Bricklayers on the 8th is what was agreed. I'll be there a bit later on.

It is pretty tiny. I was just there at 8:00 tonight (Wednesday) and it was packed. And smokey.
And the facade appears to be shackled in scaffolding for what I presume is a facelift.
Still, we could meet there and decide on another place if it's too cramped.
There are loads of other bars/pubs in that area as well.

I read somewhere it's her out of Elastica. My guess is the bass player from Catch.

I think the Bricklayers was agreed upon because; a) it's a Sam Smiths boozer and therefore cheap, b) it's pretty central, and c) everyone had a good time there at the last meet-up.

Changing venues now, after the Bricklayers was decided upon in the original thread, would be a bit daft, and moving elsewhere on the night would be bad for latecomers (i.e, me).

Christ, I knew there was too much consensus in that original thread!

Additionally, loitering upstairs in the lounge of the Bricklayers for about 20 minutes is usually rewarded by getting a nice big table.

I only just realised that this happens to be the same day as the launch of the Wii, which is rather distressing, but I guess there's all of the weekend to play it...

Don't worry Adrian, apparently the graphics are Gamecube-class.

That said, someone bring an XBox 360 and we can play together.

Hey, glad everyone's still up for this. What time are we getting started?

I get off work at 7, and since I work next door, that would be best for me. I could dawdle in the office longer if need be.
