Title: 90th Birthday curry - Saturday August 25th
Post by: Jon on July 15, 2018, 09:47:13 AM
David and I have significant birthdays within a few days of each other in August and have decided to have a combined birthday party curry. All are welcome.

Iíve decided on Friday 10th simply because itís my pay day and a Friday - how does this suit everyone?

Iím thinking that we meet in the Wig and Pen for a pint or two, head across to the Anarkali, and maybe continue with the drinking afterwards.Other suggestions may be considered. 😁

* David - is the 10th ok for you?

Cheers Jon for getting this going!

Fridays are generally not a good day for me (it's the wife's weekly scheduled away-time on her own, which kind of balances my Thursday Pig's rides, thus untouchable) and I've got my parents visiting over the weekend. How about Saturday the 18th of August? It's not your payday, but you should have some money left in the bank, right? :) Plans for the evening sounds great!

Apart from that, I'd just like to point out that the significance of Jon's birthday is 1.25 times greater than mine. You do the math  ;D

 Donít exaggerate - Iím younger than you. 😂

Canít do 18th - family party. How about a week later Saturday the 25th August?

Great plan! I should be able to do the 25th. Might not be able to make a bike ride beforehand though will if I'm about.

A 90th birthday ride would be good too, lets try find another date for that!

I just discovered that the Swansea Beer and Cider festival is on this weekend in August. An alternative to the Wig and Pen before the curry perhaps (its in Brangwyn hall)? If I remember correctly from last year (its all a bit foggy), you got the entrance and tokens for 3-4 half pints for £10. Not bad at all considering the amount of nice beers to try :)

Just a reminder.

Meet in the Wig and Pen at 7ish? Earlier if required. 😁

7 should be ok for me. Doubt i'll manage to get there earlier.  Hopefully I won't miss the pub chorus singing you happy birthday!

Yeah, 7 is good! Any later and we'll have to bring lights  ;D

Are you expecting birthday presents?*

*Hint: To avoid disappointment, don't expect birthday presents.

We told him you'd sing Happy Birthday in the style of Marilyn Monroe in lieu of presents and he seemed happy with that. Perhaps overly happy!   :o ???   :-\

Presents? Only if they are Lamborghini shaped, Lamborghini sized and Lamborghini expensive. Dave may have different requirements. 😁

Seems an odd choice Jon:

Also, as much as i'd love to help out, unfortunately, I've got a terrible singing voice.

I've been thrown out of my house by my son's, some joking fight between two dick heads off YouTube, so I'm out on my bike. I'll pop in if anyone is brave enough for the rather shady beer garden.
