What are YOU doing on 9th May?

We (ie. me & Spinks), along with some of our friends, will be at the Cittie of Yorke pub in Holborn, London, having drinks and discussing WAR and probably all sorts of related things. And we’d love it if you could come along, with friends, guildies, forum friends, anyone at all who’d like to join a get-together of London WAR players, friends and family!

The address of the pub is 22 Holborn, WC1V 8BN and we’ve booked the front room for 4pm onwards. Nearest Tube stations are Chancery Lane, Holborn and Farringdon and you can see what the pub looks like and get an idea of its location and reviews, etc from the Beer in the Evening website. The Transport for London Journey Planner can help you get info about how to get to Holborn from anywhere else in London and is a really useful tool.

It’s a good weekend to be in London anyway, since Star Trek is released on 8th May!!¬† We picked the weekend especially, but also because it avoids bank holidays, when travel is always more expensive.

Anyway, would be great to get as big a turn-out as possible, so I’d be grateful if you could spread the word on the forums and guild channels that you use on a regular basis. If it’s successful, who knows, there could be many more such fan get-togethers which could eventually form the basis for something a little more official. That being said, I know the gang from GOA are hoping to send people along, so it’s a chance to hang out, talk WAR, and drink (naturally!).

I would now make a reference to London as the Inevitable City but I’m kind of tired, so you’ll have to wait to see me in person for my razor-sharp wit!

(and for the record, a few of us are hoping to see Star Trek at the IMAX the night before, but it might get complicated to organise for too many people – but if you are there, I’m sure we could say hello in true British fashion¬† – ie. with a drink).

Pre-Work Quickie

The pub is booked.

Cittie of York pub in Holborn on 9th May, 4pm onwards in the front bar. Tell everyone!

There will be much more info available here soon. I’ll link to some maps and find buses that run nearby (to be honest, aim for Holborn or Chancery Lane Underground Stations and it’s very close).

PuG in a Pub!

One week today (9th March 2009), GOA is being infiltrated by myself and Ardua, and following a jaunt around the office and a peek at the nascent European official forums, Nic and Magnus will be joining us at the Bull and Castle pub – and you’re ALL invited (to the pub bit!).

We reckon we’ll be hitting the pub at 7pm local time, which should allow for a fair amount of revelry. And Nic’s going to reserve a couple of tables under the name ‘GOA’ and he thinks they’ll probably be upstairs in case anyone gets there before us.

Any questions about the day, leave a comment here or grab me on twitter. And if you have any last-minute questions for GOA, please also feel free to get in touch.

[For anyone making the trip, here’s some info Ardua put together for his blog, keep checking his blog for the most up-to-date details, as I’ll be leaving my house around 5am on 9th March!]
