Title: Christmas curry 2017
Post by: Jon on November 07, 2017, 09:02:57 PM
It's that time of year. I'm on my second box of mince pies, and I'm fighting off daily demands to put up a Xmas tree. We need to sort out a curry!

What date, and who is scoffing?

I'll suggest from the start that we meet as normal in the Woodman and head around the corner, and do it on a Thursday, because most of us tend to be available.

Which Thursday?

And how many pages before someone asks "What date?"

I'd come along if I knew where it was!?

Date, how about 14th December?

14th is good for me.

I like curry and I guess I can put up with most of you.  So I will try come along!
14th I guess would be ok but that's a bike ride night so I like the idea of doing it on the 15th instead!  Also I know trying to change the date annoys Jon!

Rose was good last year (or year before, they all blur into one) but the Woodman is definitely a preferred pub than the Westbourne so Woodman / Mumbai i'm in favour of.

14th or 15th is good for me. Mumbai and Woodman sounds splendid. What ho!

I'm more likely to be available on the 15th, thinking about it! 

And I'm happy with town rather than the Woodman - it's easier for me to stagger home.

Curry + Beer + Bike Banter = good night out :)

Time? What date, more like!

Shall we say 15th, Friday (December 2017 arguments to avoid). Meet in the Westbourne at 7ish, maybe earlier, and head to St Helens Rd random curry house. In Yoda speak for benefit of Dom Treeswerver.

15th sounds great.  Shall we have a Chinese for a change?  ::)

I'd love to come, but I'm in Ghent drinking Belgium beer that week returning late Thursday, so the family will most likely have another opinion. St Helens Rd is very close to where I live though, with some luck I might turn up late for a proper Welsh ale. Just for restoring the osmotic balance.

We are Andy, but we're not going to tell you where we're meeting.  :P

On that note, where shall we meet?  ;D Wig and Pen? Uplands Tav (probably busy?) Somewhere else?
Title: Re: Christmas curry 2017
Post by: Tristan on December 13, 2017, 08:49:39 PM
Wherever works for me. Tav probably rammed so Wig maybe. Or bryn y mor or the one opposite.

I知 easy .....

Bryn sounds good
Title: Re: Christmas curry 2017
Post by: Jon on December 14, 2017, 03:25:16 PM
Shall we say 7pm in the Brynymor? (Or earlier if people want.)
Title: Re: Christmas curry 2017
Post by: Brendawg on December 14, 2017, 06:01:45 PM
I知 out all day with work, so I知 not sure if I値l make it. If I do, I知 likely be quite drunk.
Title: Re: Christmas curry 2017
Post by: caf on December 14, 2017, 08:44:10 PM
I assume there's a Bryn in Swansea and your not all heading my way to the Royal Oak!

...where abouts is it?
Title: Re: Christmas curry 2017
Post by: Jon on December 14, 2017, 09:06:40 PM
The Brynymor, in Brynymor Road off St Helens Rd.  SA1 4JQ
Title: Re: Christmas curry 2017
Post by: Tristan on December 15, 2017, 01:42:28 AM
We discussed this tonight, we're thinking the Brynymor will likely also be rammed tomorrow.  So shall we aim for the Mill opposite for 7 instead?  That's usually quieter I think?  Or take a chance on Brynymor.  Dom pointed out that some philistines don't have mobiles and so can't re-organise to meet somewhere else if we get to the first place and it's rammed.
Title: Re: Christmas curry 2017
Post by: Jon on December 15, 2017, 02:39:41 AM
Ok The Mill.

Craig, same place, just opposite.  ;D

Title: Re: Christmas curry 2017

"Mill", "Millers" seems appropriate!  ;D see yas later!  8)

Yes, a good night. Nice to see you all without a covering of 'dust'.

I'm feeling a little delicate today.
