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).

Quick Question

With help from both Spinks and my other sister, I’ve been given the task of locating a pub in London for a WAR get-together on 9th May. That’s a Saturday. Have spoken to two recommended ones for MMO gatherings (how bizarre is that, but kind of cool too).

One of them is getting back to me today, the other says we can have 3pm-7pm. Is that a horrible time for a get-together? I think it nicely spans lunch to dinner, and after 7pm people can move on to restaurants, other pubs in the area, cinemas, theatres – or it’d give them plenty of time to get home if they’re out of London.

What do you think?

Not booking anything just yet, but need to give them an answer on Thursday (am hoping other pub comes back and says we can have 7pm+ and we can have a veritable pub crawl!).

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!]

Book of Grudges vs. Book of Kells

Which is better? There’s only one way to find out… (channeling Harry Hill there)!

We’re off to Dublin in March. Just overnight and to meet up with GOA and Ardua from Echoes of Nonsense. Of course, it would be remiss not to organise a get-together while in Dublin, especially as the poll indicates at least a few people would be interested in that location. So, free up 9th March in your calendars, assume it’ll be in the evening and come help Arbitrary celebrate her birthday while talking all things WAR.

Spread the word. Details of pubs, etc coming much closer to the date, as we get advice from Ardua and GOA!
