YO Meet 18/08 !

Post by N1KE » Fri Jun 29, 2007 1:27 pm

WHAT?!

LaYkE the Irish genius with 2 GCSEs thought it would be a truly spiffing idea to have a get together in Dublin. Everyone else decided we'd hold it in London instead.

WHEN?!

Saturday 18th August. 1pm start leading into the night time.

WHERE?!

Image
Central London - Covent Garden
Meeting at this pub (The Cove) - map here at 1pm

Venue:
The Cove

Phone: 0871-223-1797

Address:
1 Covent Garden Piazza
Covent Garden
London
uk
WC2E 8HB

HOW TO GET THERE?!

Getting to London
For the euro people your best chances are to fly into either London City, Heathrow or Stansted, although you can connect easily enough from any major southern airport. Ryanair for the best fares, and book early!

For getting to Central London within the UK train tickets are cheaper when booked earlier, and make sure you get them from the website of the main carrier for special discounts, not from your local station!

Once in London get the tube to covent garden, and from there turn right out of the tube, towards the market. It's on the corner opposite the Dr. Marten's shop above a pasty shop - go up the staircase next to the counter of the pasty shop

MEETING UP!

If meeting up is a worry for you, we can ease you in by meeting with princess at your destination (airport, train, coach, etc) before we all gather together at the pub at around 1pm.

Send a PM to princess if you want to be collected from the airport/train station/whatever for more info :)


WHERE TO STAY

There are loads of places to stay in London but most are quite pricey. Read the 'where to stay' thread for cheap ideas.


WHO'S COMING?!

Anyone over the age of 18 can come, and we hope lots of people from regs & the community will do! We've announced this nice and early for everybody to get the cheap train/air fares!

call me confused. We're having a get together in Dublin in Central London.

if it's on in Dublin, chalk me down as a definite. If it's on in London, chalk me down as a maybe. August is an expensive month for me.

I'm going to be in London in August anyway, I think.. I'm not sure if I can afford two trips to London and a festival here in Ireland all in the same month... I'll see what the petticoat government has to say first

Come on Harold! You know you've allowed your cool factor to slip a fair bit. (You may have noticed this is directly proportional to how much time you spend hanging out with Das LaYkE).

Pffft GCSE's. We do real exams over here bud.

Anyway I tried to get the boring snoring Yo's over to the Emerald Isle where the exchange rate is in their favor but NOOOOOOOooooOOO.

AFI gave me some directions to a few apparently really good bars. After further research, they turned out to be gay bars, sorry lads.

Viper, did the research consist of you refreshing your memory of where you went last weekend ?

I imagine it'll be over 18's only because we're probably going to be meeting up in a bar/club/pub/thing for drinks and chats :) Anyone will be welcome to come along.

That pretty much explains my post :D

It's cos a lot of places are over 21 or challenge 21.
