    Okay so preferably a quiet pub somewhere that's populated by regulars and where we will get stared the hell out of as soon as we walk in :P

    Sera is a female. No idea if she'll come though. I've got long hair so if you look at me from behind I may look like a girl :P

    Same. I had to grow a beard because people kept stopping me and saying things like -

    'Excuse me miss..how do I get to....oh'

    Or a couple of times I was out with my girlfriend and got

    'Excuse me ladies, do you know where....'



    :mad:

    But yay! Good to see people interested. Might I suggest some time sooner than the 20th of March? As that's only a week away from me being able to drink again. Which is just too cruel...!

    I wouldn't have pictured you with long hair at all! You've just shattered my whole image of you now :P

    Any weekend including Friday evening is fine with me

    The weekend of the 13th I'll be away watching Man United hammer Fulham.

    O'Neills on Dame street isn't a bad spot and quite central as well or perhaps TP Smyths?

    Think Jesus playing an arcade machine and you won't be too far off the mark :D

    You can strip for us, we'll need some form of entertainment.

    Jack is short for Jackie, right?

    Where the fook is that?

    I have come up with another suggestion. The fighting game forum guys seem to highly recommend the Bull and Castle. Not only are the pints good but you can get some great fast food there as well including deep fried mars bars.

    Oh yeah... But better than pints they have steins.

    I've never tried them before but I think this could be the perfect time to change that :)


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators, Regional Abroad Moderators Posts: 15,182 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Atavan-Halen


    Yeah I'll have to try one! I had deep fried ice cream before which is odd...but nice :)

    They are quite possibly the greatest use for a deep fat frier ever.
