Sandbar will have tables reserved in the from 14:00 while late.

I'll place some Fatbee flyers around in the backroom.

Before orderings beer ask for Dan or Dom, I'm seeing if I'm allowed to give you guys discount, word on that within the next day or two.

Or if any of you smoke, I venture there quite a bit so, look in the beer garden look for a ginger fella with a flat-cap or a ginger dude in a suit, respectively.

Happy Star Wars day!

I'll be there early afternoon 2pm, set-up, then I need to buy some stuff in the city and I'll rejoin for drinks a hour or two later,

The staff know the gig, everything should be arranged and they've got my number for you peeps if there are any problems for the time I'm not there. Though I'm sure you're all capable of discussing the finer points of German beer with the staff.

Flat-cap Dan/Rene

Message from the manager:

Great to hear you are swinging into sandbar. As I said to Dan you have the room exclusively from 12pm - 9pm. Also when you arrive just mention to the bar staff you are there for the Eve Meet Up and you'll receive a stamp on the hand which when shown you will get a discount at the bar. Also, I'm afraid we currently don't serve food on the weekends but we are happy for you to bring food into the building you've bought outside (snacks / hot food / whatever) as long as you keep it in the backroom. This however isn't applicable when the room is opened up at 9pm to the general public. There's a noodle bar just over the road which is excellent, if you want to find it the staff will give you directions.

Sounds good, been beating the wardrums on TEST forums/jabber, so a few of us should be turning up.

No plans were made, but there's the veto London meet planned for the summer, other than that pay attention to this forum :), I may get bored and sort something out if no one has not yet done the honours

Looks like i am 12 days too late :( Oh by the way theres a Kyoto bar round the corner from the bar you lot went to.
It looks like a strip bar but it is not, it's a gaming bar with a **** load of consoles and pc's with beer! and a fit barmaid.

Whens the next one planned for?

Hope you fellas had a good one. That Kyoto bar sounds good, didnt know we had anything like that in town...

If theres a Manc mailing list goin round then add this dirty northerner to the list and I'll be sure to attend the next one for boozey EVE like shenanigans!
