Excel and Access geek drinks down london way

My mate Dick Moffat is over from Canada at the end of October.

He asked me to ask if anyone fancied meeting up for a drink at some point over the weekend of 28-30 October?

I’m not sure where I will be that weekend. But if there is an sensible way I can get to London, I will.

I guess the easiest way to organise it is to leave a note on his blog if you fancy a little office related socialising.

  1. Marcus from London Says:

    I’ll tentatively stick my hand up. Let us know when you have more details.

  2. DickM Says:

    Thanx Marcus … that’d be great. I will be in touch.

    Simon…. thanx for this note. I wish you could be there for a few Pints but it’s a pretty long commute from Switzerland. Some day I’ll get there and we’ll have a fondue instead :-).


  3. Mike Staunton Says:

    I can make either the Thursday or Friday nights but not Saturday, 30th

  4. Biggus Dickus Says:


    It would likely be Thu/Fri for people who work in the City for lunch or after work before heading out for home I guess.

    Will be in touch.


  5. Bob Phillips Says:

    Sounds like a great opportunity to talk Dan Hicks with Dick. I will certainly try to be there. If Marcus turns up I can ask him why he didn’t reply to my email :)

  6. Biggus Dickus Says:

    Cool Bob …. lookign forward to it.

  7. Bob Phillips Says:

    @Dick – any idea what date this will be, need to schedule if I can make it.

    • Biggus Dickus Says:

      Thnax for the “ping” on this Bob. Time is advancing on isn’t it?

      The date will be Thursday Oct 28th around 6pm.

      I would appreciate if any locals could suggest a sensibly priced, typically English locale anywhere that would make sense in London that the maximum number of people would be able to reach relatively easily :-). I can get anywhere …

      Any ideas?

    • Biggus Dickus Says:

      “Good, 30th was a no-no for me, but 28th should be good. Whereabouts will you be staying Dick?”

      Don’t know yet for the 28th and 29th. Will be staying downtown somewhere – maybe under a bridge (??)

      Any suggestions – Clean and not outrageously priced?


      • Bob Phillips Says:

        You are leaving it late Dick, the price goes up nearer the date. You could try Travelodge, nothing to write home about, but clean and can be reasonable, I am seeing about £20o for those to nights at the moment..

  8. Marcus from London Says:

    Which email was that, Bob? I obviously missed it – sorry. Send it again.

    “sensibly priced”
    Ah, well, there’s the thorny bit. Aside from price, probably something along the Central line b/w Nottinghill Gate and Liverpool street is going to be reasonably accessible for most:

    I’m working in Marylebone at the moment. Happy with anything but Canary Wharf.

  9. Marcus from London Says:

    “‘Traditional’ English Curry”
    I’m sorry; isn’t that an oxymoron?

    Bob; apology accepted (although I’m sure there’s a pint in there somewhere).

    Simon: I’ve now officially been in this country for 3 years (as at 1st Oct). I’ve sure it’s about time we actually MET. No excuses! :P

    • Simon Says:

      Marcus, and In that time I have lived and worked in half a dozen countries. And am now languishing in sunny Switzerland. Which is my excuse…
      And dont worry about Bob – he never replies to my emails – talk about pot, kettle, black etc…

  10. Andy Pope Says:

    Now we have a rally point I will annouce my intention to attend :)

  11. Mike Staunton Says:

    I’m in too, though on orange juice rather than IPA

  12. Biggus Dickus Says:

    FYI – Here is a link to the announcement of the date, time and place on my blog…


    Hope to see many there.


  13. Simon Says:

    Would love to be there guys but I’m on the wrong continent.
    Have a good one
