Hi! Where are you staying and have you any plans in mind? Friday is the 18th so are you here until the 18th or Saturday? I'll definitely try my best to make my first meet up - whoop! - but I'm working during the days and a few evenings are taken up already so let me know what would suit you. Welcome!

Ah, I meant Saturday the 19th. I have plans with coworkers wednesday, but I am otherwise free Tues/Thurs/Friday nights.

I'm staying near city hall, so anywhere really in city center or around here is an easy walk for me.

Have you been to the Crown Bar before? It's all historical and that and a short walk for you, plus we can reserve one of the booths downstairs if I have a couple of days notice. They serve food downstairs until 8 - not sure if you want to get some food or just drinks? Thursday evening after 6-6.30 would suit us best if that works for you (I'll be bringing along manoffewwords who says slightly more irl).

6:30 in a reserved booth sounds great, if you can schedule the reservation I can update the event.

I was at the crown my last time here - in 2005, but always want an excuse to go back.

Great! I've reserved it for 6.30 under the name O'Connor. It seats up to 8 so if anyone else is around they can join us no problem.

Thanks for the evening billiebee! I hope we can do it again when I'm back in February or so.

Thank you for my first meetup! Apologies for the modern day famine in the Crown... Definitely let me know when you're back in town and more gin will be had.
