Sick of all the Southerners taking all the bandwidth with their namby pamby 'bakeoffs'?


#1

Well now is our chance to stand tall.

Northern, and indeed, Scottish slaughter men (apart from Paul…he is too far North (although I would love to visit him)) , let us sort something … sometime.

Soon.


#2

Join in NEBO on aos. It’ll be fun. Run by a bloke who calls himself Progmeister I believe. Friend of Terry probably.


#3

Fuck. That.


#4

Providing you can accommodate overnighters, I’ll be up for it Stu. The border is only 360 miles from London.

namby pamby southerners indeed…Hrrrmmmmph! :unamused:


#5

All round to mine for a tofu feast


#6

FTFY


#7

I’m presuming you’re already sorted for smack when you’re up this time?


#8

i.e. the first 36 miles take as much time as the other as the other 324.


#9

I meant 36 miles south of London.
London is ooop North from here!

The South Downs are a proper border!

@B2T Can’t go wrong with a curry at Mother India. Great food, always cheaper than expected and they stick bigger groups downstairs out of the way.

Even if there was only going to be 4/5 of us I’m sure they’d give us the downstairs if we warned them we were cunts.

Although I don’t get out much I do unfortunately know of a few hipster venues through occasionally mixing with younger/trendier types. Although I’d blend in with my fixie, beard and tofu…none of them would be my in my top 50 choices.


#11

Anywhere hirable to put one’s rig up in?


#12

No idea of cost, but the Counting House is near there

http://countinghouse.pear-tree-house.co.uk/availability/

Maybe a bit big. Good acoustics though :stuck_out_tongue:

Anyway…I thought we were all just going back to your place? :stuck_out_tongue:


#13

Oooooh Matron! Etc etc…


#14

Looks like that’s part of The Dog On String Pear Tree. I spent most of my grant there once upon a time. If it’s anything like Causewayside (where I used to live) then it’s probably gone considerably upmarket since those days.


#15

I wouldn’t say it’s gone upmarket- I don’t think the cunting house is expensive as far as venues go, my old work hired it for an xmas do and that was on a fairly limited budget I think. But, it’s big so prob not relevant anyway. The Pear Tree is pretty expensive and a bit shit but I think it’s always been? Since I was a student anyway. You went there for the beer garden rather than anything else.

A venue might overcomplicate things compared with a curry and drinks


#16

when out and about in Edinburgh, I’d recommend here

or for something less formal, here:

#17

You appear to be trying to drag this out of the gutter


#18

don’t the folk of the land of the skirted men like the finer things in life?


#19

just quality lycra and artisan tofu


#20

We’re definitely doing the rounds of “Gyroscope was here”. Again, I lived on Castle Terrace for 6 years.

I had a good, casual curry here
