    Right that's it then. We have a black tie dinner in Kensington this evening and as it's Chinese New Year plan to go for lunch tomorrow in China Town

    I will confirm a table for 12 on the assumption that Dave can make it. I can always knock it back to 11 on the evening.

    Look forward to meeting everyone.

    Well we made it to China Town yesterday.

    Despite only having a few hours’ sleep and horrible hang overs which didn’t improve with all the Chinese new year crowds pushing and shoving along trying to get into a security blocked of China Town due to thousands of folk throwing fire crackers, banging drums and blowing whistles. After two hours we had only managed to get as far as the east side of Lisle Street and decided to give up and go and get some Dim Sum which was perfect for settling our stomachs washed down with plenty of Chinese tea to rehydrate our alcohol sodden bodies. When we left we still couldn’t make any progress towards the Imperial so gave up and went home.

    I will have to give them a ring today and confirm the booking and numbers.

    Forum London Winter warmer Friday 21st February - Now booked and reservation confirmed

    Meeting in The Sussex public house on the corner of Upper Martins and Long Acre at about 18:00 (The Porcupine PH we used last year was ok but very small so I have picked a larger place this year) followed by dinner at The Imperial China on Lisle Street WC2. Table booked for 19:30

    I have booked for 12 people just in case we get a late runner; it’s always easier to cancel a cover than increase the numbers at short notice.

    If you are unsure of the location, please see the below map: Red arrow is for the bozzer and the blue arrow is the restaurant.

    Callum & GF - (2)
    Lambeth longshanks - (1)
    TheZipster - (1)
    Alex56 - (1)
    Jimbo - (1)

    Crap, sorry guys, but I'm going to have to pull out.

    g/f had a call last night after which she said she wouldn't be able to come as she has to go deal with some family bollox.
    She just called me 5mins ago asking me to go with her for support :rolleyes:

    If I can get away then I'll txt FOC to let him know, but put me down as absent for now :(


    If I con't make it on Friday, then my Saturday is free if anyone wants a post-meetup .... er... meetup
