If booze is cheap up there and flights only cost that, it makes more sense to have the next social there (at your house, in your man-cave/cinema).

I'm all for that Melly.

Party at my house. Bring bottle and bird.

I did get as far as checking it out - honest!

Inverness to Luton or Gatwick....EIGHT quid!

The return was £22.

2 bottles of lady lager at the Clachan (a few years ago)....£10-odd.

Unfortunately, my London benefactor is in a state of post Brexit gloom (and who can blame him) and hotel rooms are extortionate. I do need a few days away though, so I'll keep looking around. It way well be that I call a snap social? Failing that, the wifey installed a whatsapp thingy on my phone, so maybe I (and anyone else for that matter) can 'pop in' digitally at the next one and say hi!


My first round on Friday consisting of 2 pints of alcoholic apple juice and a sensibly sized G&T cost £19.

Prices have seemingly doubled then since my last London social, and you can guarantee that RPI/CPI linked income (annuitised or otherwise) hasn't.

I very much enjoyed my chat with the lady whose Moniker keeps slipping my mind. Miss 'eff' according to AC. We discussed Tesselated Pavement

Followed by Jacobson's Organ

Which made for light relief in between the HYPe and Pinkpot trying to persuade Mel that MrCPFG was actually MranythingbutMrCPFG, and general the UKIP Brexit frothy bother.

I also enjoyed the game "Guess Mel's badge".

James won.

I can't remember any Brexit (thankfully)
Vague memories of pensions, flooding, James, Neil Young/Dylan, beer, portfolios. Usual stuff!

Well that date is now firmly in *my* diary. I think we should entice Clariman there too so he (well I'm making assumptions there) can meet up with our stooz for the first time.

How about we just determine that that is our TLF Christmas meet up. No polls, no complications, just go for it - be there or be square? Eh AC (King Socialite)?

Yep, set the date. We'll work out where later.

I think I can do that date.

Hmm, possible work Christmas do I think, either 15th or 14th (which would probably wipe out the 15th going by previous years...)
But, if I can do it - I'll do it.

Heck, just mentioned C*******s before Bonfire Night. I will have to kill myself.

If you are planning a 15 December Social, might be worth starting a new thread and getting it 'pinned' when you've settled on a location.
(I thought the Clachan was more expensive than I remembered - hopefully the staff weren't adding an informal 'service charge'...)

They charge more if you insist on standing over the line....

I'll remember that for next time :-)
(£18 for two pints of bitter and a medium 'house' white wine was a bit steep I thought...)

Eighteen quid? **** Me.

Ever more the reason for a bottle of wine in the house and an online social.....

I'm going to email them, and ask for a price list. I'm getting receipts next time....
The Nicholson's pub in Windsor is quite reasonable, and that's in Tourist Central, near the castle

Did you not use your Nicholson's frequent user card?

Nah, had the app, but never something I remember in busy boozers (getting served is enough)
