Hi, all. I leave for London in 48 hours so I thought I'd summarize our arrangements.
Date: May 29th, 6:00 p.m.
Place: The Lamb, Lamb's Conduit St. Closest tube stations: Russell Square or Holborn. Go to fancyapint.com to download a map. The pub will not be serving food that night, so you might want to stop en-route for something to eat.
Recognition: If it's nice out, grab a pint & head for the outside tables. If it's cold or raining, grab a pint & head to the sunken area to the left of the island bar. I'll either be wearing a Nova Scotia top (lobster on 1 sleeve, lighthouse on the other) or a piece of lace, & will have an M & S bag. I'll also spread some Canadian chocolate bars on the table!
CAN/UK/US Chocolate Bar Tasting: We will be doing a blind taste test of Cadbury's Dairy milk, Nestle Crunch, and Mars/Milky Way bars, and maybe a Can/US Caramilk/Caramello test too, if TracyColorado doesn't eat the US ones first :-) (A taste is just a taste - you won't be able to dine off these. I figure 2 bars of each is enough.) I will bring the Canadian ones, TracyColorado the US ones, and both Tracy & aggietown have volunteered to buy the UK versions. (Extra UK versions are ok. Going by reputation, they will be winners and we can all have an extra taste.)
Attendees: The following people should be there: me, TracyColorado, 4RTrip, chissis, finalement!, CarMar, Pinkfluffykitten, Myrtletheturtle, Adamhornets, Salis4, aggietown, and possibly tonymoco, plus assorted spouses, babies, etc. I expect about 26 in all.
Changes, keeping in touch: Adamhornets has volunteered to be the 'communication centre'. He will monitor/post any changes and will phone me in London to keep me informed. He has volunteered to contact anyone else who will not be near a computer. Just send your contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks Adam.
Looking forward to meeting all of you at The Lamb!
