See Otis, shudda booked earlier!
Okay, so I don't want to drag this out. Few things went a bit wrong.
If I remember right, MM said he might go. And someone checked online to see if pub was wheelchair friendly - website said it was. Otis goes to book and it isn't. I had a look at a thread on boards here and there isn't that many wheelchair accessible/friendly bars in Dublin at all which is terrible imo. I guess this late in the day it is a bit difficult to change this.
I apologise to you, Otis as I thought it would be easy to change to a more suitable venue but it doesn't seem likely.

Just wondering as I'm writing this if the bar would allow it. You'd probably know yourself from experience.
This will be a Health & Safety and Fire issue so it cannot be done.
MM, I think everyone here as learned the difficulties you face when out soclising regarding access. I didn't realise it would be so difficult myself. No-one I know from this forum would purposely exclude somebody from a social event. As it stands it looks like it'll have to be another beers (which is never too far away). Maybe make some suggestions for venues yourself so we have an idea what is suitable.
