Drinks in the Smoke 3

Okay, it looks as though Tuesday 12th is the most suitable day for everyone, and the crowds in the bars might be lighter too.

The Parcel Yard in Kings Cross station seems to be the most recommended venue, plus it’s easy to get to (and to escape from). Hopefully those who are near Bank can make it, that was the alternative.

What time does everyone finish work in London these days? I’ll head up there at 5pm and secure a seat somewhere. If you don’t know what I look like, go to my Twitter page and look at my profile pic; I look just like that and will be wearing the same loud purple shirt. I’m also 6’4″ tall and loud. I’m hard to miss.

See you there folks, I’m looking forward to it!

  1. Would like to meet up but I’m not dahn saaath next week.

    Maybe next time..

  2. Enjoy yourself lads, I lived in Kings Cross (Argyle Square) for over a year and then just up the road in Islington for a bit that was thirty years ago mind you. I also squatted in Bloomsbury Square back in the day. Alas I don’t recognise any of those boozer names these days but I am not surprised that Kings Cross despite its many highs and lows still comes out as a decent meet up point.

    I took my Aussie family to the UK about six years ago via Europe by train and was quite impressed when we arrived that Euston Station was no longer a dump, we stayed in St Martins Lane on that visit, but I haven’t forgotten my roots. I would happily shout you a drink Tim and probably a round for the lads for your blogging efforts by paypal or something but I know you won’t take it, but the offers there if you do want to.

  3. Is Ecks going to be there? I’d love to meet him in real life. Albeit with a disguise in case he takes against me as a former civil servant and starts plotting my destruction.

  4. Is Ecks going to be there?

    I hope so, but doubt he’ll break cover. Let’s look out for a guy sat in the corner burning an effigy of Theresa May.

    Thanks Bardon.

  6. I’m also 6’4″ tall

    This may not be terribly helpful if you’re sitting down.

  7. I typically finish work later but will aim to show up if I manage to leave earlier than usual.

  8. Bugger. Had to fly back to France today so can’t make it. Would have been there for sure otherwise.
    Have a top night.
    Look out for my friend Blandine, one of the waitresses there. She’ll be looking for you.
    She’s a good girl and will look after you.
    Hope I can make the next drink up.

  9. I get in too late to London and I’d already set up dinner with my daughter (who is still the apple of my eye), so I won’t be there for this one.

    Have fun, don’t trash the place and see y’all next time!
