How about Strawberry Fair?

(Just because I'd like to see you wear your worst Christmas jumper to the fair.)

Published by B-bam at 11:48pm on Thu 17th November 2016.

Somewhere on this earth, there surely must be a bar, club or other similar venue called Lol's. It' be the perfect place.

Seconded.

Published by B-bam at 12:08am on Mon 21st November 2016.

... and now it's December

Published by foolscap (not active) at 12:04pm on Thu 1st December 2016.

I quite like Christmas so I've been enjoying seeing all the decorations today. Yesterday I was inwardly seething muttering "IT'S FUCKING NOVEMBER!!" to myself.

Published by Silent Rob at 12:49pm on Thu 1st December 2016.

i've already received my first xmas card.

Pub of the Year? I'm still unsure whether I've actually been in the Blue Moon yet. Know I've missed a few gigs I meant to go to. If it's any good I propose here. Also wondered about Thirsty Fest behind Mackays, if anyone fancies sitting out in the cold.

Published by foolscap (not active) at 2:53pm on Thu 1st December 2016.

I like the Blue Moon.

I don't fancy sitting out in the cold.

Published by B-bam at 4:08pm on Thu 1st December 2016.

Canny stand the Moon these days myself...
Are we going to make this get together happen or what,
Maybe a meal?
Mosa ?

Published by bigmal at 2:00am on Fri 2nd December 2016.

good anti-xmas points
though would rather eat at the Regal (not a suggestion btw)

it's ages since I last went in The Snug on Lensfield Road - does it do food?
maybe if there was a list of Cambridge pubs we could do a top 5 list and people could put up points?

Published by foolscap (not active) at 11:26am on Fri 2nd December 2016.

good idea foolscap. shall we nail down a date first?

the moon is way better than it ever was plus they have cracking beer.

bigmal - can you make some suggestions as you poo-poo'd the moon?

Published by B-bam at 1:05pm on Fri 2nd December 2016.

I'd come along to the Blue Moon. I haven't visited it often since Jethro took it over.

I'm open to other suggestions too, though.

Published by Wrongfellow at 4:35pm on Fri 2nd December 2016.

Blue Moon- me arse

Published by bigmal at 8:54pm on Mon 5th December 2016.

Well unless you come up with some other suggestions the blue moon it will be.

Published by B-bam at 11:13pm on Mon 5th December 2016.

The Blue Moon is horrible, the Portland is too up its own arse, the Swan is shite now, B-bam does not like the Dev, the Salisbury is nothing compared with what it used to be.
Hows about the Kingston?

Published by bigmal at 11:37pm on Mon 5th December 2016.

as long as it's not in their beer garden (fine in summer) or a Saturday... do they still do good beer at the Kingston, not been in there in about 2 years?

Published by foolscap (not active) at 11:44pm on Mon 5th December 2016.

I like the Kingston. It's a bit like the Cambridge Blue, only less crowded. Of course, with regular WAN user numbers being what they currently are, there's always the Elm Tree.

Published by John Techno at 11:51pm on Mon 5th December 2016.

do they still have board games?

Published by foolscap (not active) at 12:35am on Tue 6th December 2016.

I stopped going to the Kingston in winter because I could never get a seat and outside was too cold, but it's still a very good pub. They still had board games when I went there in the summer.

I usually go to the Live because the beer is good and you can ALWAYS get a table.

Published by Silent Rob at 6:01am on Tue 6th December 2016.

Yeah not overly keen on the Kingston, but could do the Live, or the Elm Tree for somewhere more central for us northeners.

Published by B-bam at 7:42pm on Tue 6th December 2016.

Yeah I could do the Live as well.

Published by bigmal at 8:02pm on Tue 6th December 2016.

When are we going to do this thang then?

Published by bigmal at 11:37am on Fri 9th December 2016.

Where is the Live and Let Live.
When is? like the sound of one hand clapping...

Published by foolscap (not active) at 12:18pm on Fri 9th December 2016.

Why don't you suggest some dates you're free bigmal? This is your suggestion after all.

Published by B-bam at 5:16pm on Fri 9th December 2016.

Published by Wrongfellow at 5:25pm on Fri 9th December 2016.

'Where?' is the live and let live.

Published by B-bam at 5:42pm on Fri 9th December 2016.

Erm eh hoos aboot the 16th, next Friday...

Published by bigmal at 6:19pm on Fri 9th December 2016.

that's date, not dates.

i prolly should have written that as 'Where, is the Live and Let Live. When, is...?' as i roughly know it's not far from the Six Bells and Salisbury... though the Panton was good with it's open fire and sofas and scottish beer :)

Published by foolscap (not active) at 8:15pm on Sat 10th December 2016.

I don't like the Panton because we saw a really frightening caterpillar there once. About seven years ago, but you never know - could still be around.

Published by John Techno at 9:39pm on Sat 10th December 2016.

So is that it laid in stone then, the Live 8pm next Friday?

Published by bigmal at 2:48am on Sun 11th December 2016.

no

Published by B-bam at 12:01am on Mon 12th December 2016.

Pfffffffft

Whats up then B-bam.

Published by bigmal at 8:38am on Mon 12th December 2016.

I told you, give us a selection of dates. How complicated is it?

Published by B-bam at 10:30am on Mon 12th December 2016.

dates380

Live 8pm next Friday?

Works for me.

Published by Wrongfellow at 3:59pm on Mon 12th December 2016.

8pm next Saturday then.

but Friday's better for me.

Published by bigmal at 5:41pm on Mon 12th December 2016.

That's not a selection of dates. I'm probably going to have to pass, not least because getting a number of dates from you is as easy as pulling teeth. Have fun nonetheless.

Published by B-bam at 5:57pm on Mon 12th December 2016.

Well, give me some dates then. I have just started work at Willow Wal and my rota is still being sorted hence the lack of dates.

Published by bigmal at 12:45pm on Tue 13th December 2016.

did you catch the right bus(es) for the interview?

Published by foolscap (not active) at 1:15pm on Tue 13th December 2016.

Nice one, Bigmal! :-)

Published by John Techno at 11:35pm on Tue 13th December 2016.

Off the top of my head I have definite plans every evening until next Tuesday, and I have no hard and fast plans thereafter although things will start getting planned.

Published by B-bam at 11:56pm on Tue 13th December 2016.

I'm off Wednesday the 21st.

Published by bigmal at 8:30am on Wed 14th December 2016.

Hey Foolscrap I got my mate Liz to give me a lift in her car.

I'm up early to go and point cameras at people on bikes on Sunday morning, so I won't be there either.

Published by John Techno at 5:50pm on Wed 14th December 2016.

Am keeping tabs on this thread for when you lot agree a date, if Mr R and I are free then we'll pootle along for a sherry.

Published by MissRegaling at 10:25pm on Wed 14th December 2016.

So frequently the drink leads to depraved behaviours

Published by Malformed at 11:19pm on Wed 14th December 2016.

Believe me, the regulars on this site don't need a drink to engage in depraved behaviour.

Published by John Techno at 11:35pm on Wed 14th December 2016.

Can you make the 21st B-bam? John Techno?

Published by bigmal at 11:38pm on Wed 14th December 2016.

I could probably manage the 21st, unless I forget.

Published by John Techno at 11:48am on Thu 15th December 2016.

As I said, I have nothing yet planned from Tuesday onwards although Wednesday is the solstice so i would like to have a fire if i can. Just checked and solstice is 10:44 so I may have a day time fire.

Published by B-bam at 1:10pm on Thu 15th December 2016.

I pray for that nonbeliever....

Published by Malformed at 3:56pm on Thu 15th December 2016.

Don't need your prayers brenda/goose speaking bread/ priority 23/ malformed/ and probably numerous more aliases you've had over the years.

21st BB??

Published by bigmal at 9:12pm on Thu 15th December 2016.

how many times? YES!

BTW, DO NOT go into event management. You're abysmal at it.

Published by B-bam at 2:01am on Fri 16th December 2016.

So is this still on for tomorrow?

Published by Wrongfellow at 11:06pm on Fri 16th December 2016.

Grrrrrrrrrr

Published by bigmal at 10:48pm on Sun 18th December 2016.

I'm bringing a special guest.

Maybe we should all bring special guests.

What time are we meeting?

Published by bigmal at 6:18pm on Wed 21st December 2016.

I suggest 8pm ish

Published by bigmal at 6:36pm on Wed 21st December 2016.

Alas, I'm stranded in the forbidding wasteland to the far north, so won't be along tonight.

Published by Wrongfellow at 7:43pm on Wed 21st December 2016.

Thats a shame, me heading there now.

Published by bigmal at 7:50pm on Wed 21st December 2016.

Where were you all...?

Published by bigmal at 9:05pm on Wed 21st December 2016.

Got there about 2020 and chatted to a mate I hadn't seen for a few years. Went to the bar just before 2030 and got a drink and sat down. My special guest joined me about an hour later then we went for some grub. Twas a lovely evening. Thanks for suggesting it.

Published by B-bam at 12:10am on Thu 22nd December 2016.

So sorry to have not waited a bit longer, it would have been really nice to have met up. I hope you're keeping well.

Published by bigmal at 1:40am on Thu 22nd December 2016.

Yeah all good thanks mal.
