London meet early October - cocks in expensive pints
« on: August 20, 2021, 11:07:07 AM »
I have taken it upon myself to organise this because I think some of you are alright and I reckon I could spare a little bit of my life to getting drunk in your company. Please don’t embarrass me by not attending.

I’ve got the first two Saturdays of October (2nd, 9th) free and am totally up for either. I’m not drinking in Wetherspoons. If possible I’d like to avoid anything too city-central because London is a fucking sty and during lockdown I have very much become accustomed to a quieter life not surrounded by yuppie gimps and scum-sucking tourist weasels. Trust me, it’s worth the extra bit of effort.

So who’s in then? I am, I’m in.

We have had good times doing a crawl in Shoreditch/Hoxton.

Both dates good for me so far

I'd potentially be up for this. In terms of location my preference would be north London, so that I could just hop off the train at Finsbury park or somewhere and avoid crawling into the belly of the beast (Kings Cross). I am aware that this only benefits me specifically, but that's ok because I'm actually very important

You’re right, I wasn’t, because I didn’t need to be sick at the time and the only time I’m ever going to be sick I make sure to be near a toilet.

Looking forward to meeting you though!

I live in Walthamstow so north London suits me fine. Good boozers round Finzy P area as well.

yes i'd love to! i have met mollusk before so i feel a little less nervy about the prospect

i'm trying to think of a good suggestion...

i usually go to superstore when i'm in dalston but maybe not that for reasons. i've enjoyed Farr's in dalston and that's opposite the overground



queen adelaide in cambridge heath is nice



oh and princess louise in holborn. it's a sam smiths yes but it's beeeautiful



palm tree is fabulous and somewhat near mile end which is on the central line so



sorry random choices but these were just a few that i often ended up at

Just consulted my crystal ball and it said:

A few weeks of chat about great pubs then it’ll be ‘should we book, there could be a few dozen punters, we need somewhere spacious and quiet on a Saturday afternoon, hang on what about the Penderel’s Oak, I know it’s complete syphilis but it is practical and cheap oh alright then’.

I am extremely organised all the time so I will get something good booked with enough advance notice. Most fuckers, myself included, will happily turn up wherever as long as it’s a dead cert. Organising stuff is piss easy.

Good suggestions there Goblin, will stick them on the list (which is currently empty)!

Last one I went to started about midday, then overspilled into a squat party in Deptford until roughly the same time the next day til the police shut it down. After that we sat in a park drinking Holstens, boofing nitrous balloons and rubbing cheap speed into our gums until Tuesday afternoon. It was alright.

Apparently there are still people on tight budgets in 2021!

... which for a one-off event in London at least outranks whatever ethical stance you appear to be suggesting people maintain.

I agree with shiftwork2 that this is going to end up being at Penderels almost regardless of preamble discussion and we will have another great time getting garish pitchers of cocktails, shortbread and single plates of peas bought for us.

Shoveling money at an anti-democratic far-right funder of Nazi pressure groups or not drinking booze...I wonder which I'd choose?

I won't be coming to this. One thing I've learned from the whole coronavirus thing is that I'm a natural recluse and actually prefer not having any face to face contact with people. Not that I ever came to any of the previous ones, mind, but I always thought I might, and now I know I definitely won't.

Up to you whether you want to cancel the whole thing in light of this.

You don't go to meets, do you? Some people want to go to meets

A portion of those people don't have that much money and want to stretch it out. There are virtually no competing alternatives in London where that is feasible.

The same people may never go into a Spoons for the rest of the year but yes I am sure their one visit makes them the equivalent of a Nazi sympathiser you pathetic arsehole.

That Sam Smiths pub, The Angel, is pretty reasonably priced, isn't it? That's where I usually head when I'm in central Lahndan!

I am not planning to go to the meet but was wondering if this would be of interest: https://www.cookdandbombd.co.uk/forums/index.php/topic,88940.0.html

83p a pint. No idea how good it will be.

£5+ a pint in London now since putting prices up by a large amount shortly after the Covid outbreakz so SS has become actually more expensive than some, removing one of the core reasons to ever set foot in one.

Don't get fucking self-righteous at me, sunbeam. There's no need for that, is there? What the fuck is wrong with you? Why would anyone support a cunt like that just so they can swill piss?

Glasshouse Stores in Piccadilly / South Soho too.
