Some discussion on the Wasteland thread about meeting up for a drink in north/east london - maybe next week?

Maybe Tuesday 18th or Wednesday 19th? (As they are the only ones I can make!)

Maybe bring mix CDs?

who's in?

12-01-2005, 03:41 PM
I'm up for it. Would be good to meet some of you and disseminate some vulture culture.

Yeah, possibly- I'm Haringay based, where are the rest of you at?

I'm in Stoke Newington/Stamford Hill.

Boom is in E1. I think Stelfox is Clapton?

In terms of easy places to get to, I would vote for:

1) Stoke Newington ;)
2) Hoxton / bottom of Kingsland Road
3) Maybe Angel/Islington if lots of people from outside Hackney fancy it?

i'm actually in hackney, so there's a ton of places we can all go. stokey has the shakespeare. i have the prince george at the end of my road which is a lovely boozer. must confess to something of an islington phobia, so preferably not there, but if it turns out that way i'm still game. will also have a ragga/reggaeton mix ready by then.

Hackney-ish sounds pretty appropriate I'd say- we're not an Islington board, really, are we? I'm not sure I'll be able to come, but if I do I'll try and bring something useful along.

Not been to The Prince George but it looks pretty central-ish (http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/show.shtml/5265/Prince_George/Hackney) so I'm game.

(I only suggested Angel because it's near a tube, honest! :o )

12-01-2005, 04:31 PM
i'm easy. i believe in the power of the bus. that is of course unless anyone would fancy coming to the bar (http://www.towerhamlets.gov.uk/templates/services/services-detail.cfm?sid=2361) i live above. ;)

12-01-2005, 04:45 PM
that might be good myke. it's on my way home from work

18th / 19th should be OK for me too.

I'll be at Eden's, so I vote for Stoke Newington, cos it's less of a shithole than the rest of north east london :eek: .

Venues where burning is acceptable preferred :)

Actually Parkholme Road is virutally Stokey anyway so that's fine by me.

Do they do food?

Any decent ale or is it fizzy gassy lager?

12-01-2005, 05:49 PM
the beer's good at the george but it looks like i'm gonna be working late next week. should still be able to hook up by 9, but won't be able to invite a few of you over for food, pre-beer, which i was thinking of doing!

12-01-2005, 06:31 PM
i'm in fensburg park just off haringaygaygay
i'm up for it if i'm not completley skint

12-01-2005, 06:35 PM
could do 19th ... unless you want to make it my birthday gig on 18th at the caernarvon castle in camden :D

no idea what the beer's like though

top notch boozer bn - dangerous place to live tho, how do you keep outta there?

going to be out the country but drink one for me people

12-01-2005, 11:14 PM
its great innit - and to be honest i don't stay away - it's an extension of my lounge! i think a dissensus gathering would be good there sometime. get some people on the decks it would be nangle.

'Indo has become a favourite with creative eastenders.'

sounds horrendous

12-01-2005, 11:53 PM
don't believe tower hamlets local authority luka, it's alright. The 'italian-style' food is pizza if i remember rightly, they're just bidding it up

anyway, what's a pub doing in their a-z of council services - does it get funding?

13-01-2005, 12:05 AM
i'll poke my head in then, it's not far from me, i better not see any creative people though

13-01-2005, 12:32 AM
i could have linked it from numerous other pub sites but i thought the tower hamlets guide was the most interesting. 'creative eastenders' is not exactly right. it's a good mix. twats are rare. and the pizza is top notch. sounds like i'm doing their pr but it is one of londons best

luka - this place actually isn't too far off what you were looking for in the other thread. it's small and dark and quite quiet: a good place for a nice chat and some quality supping.

and close to tayabs

13-01-2005, 12:35 PM
count me in

Can we narrow it down to a day? Wednesday is best for me and at least one other person can only make it then?

13-01-2005, 03:00 PM
well - tuesday's better for me cos i've got a gig on wednesday and it's a long way from stokey...

be up for coming out for drinks in future tho'

I've just been told that Tuesday is bad for me, rather than just less preferable.

Cards on the table time, people...

Don't make me post another poll! :mad:

13-01-2005, 03:35 PM

No - I mean I can't make Tuesday so we are ON for Wednesday. :cool:

8:00pm, Wednesday 19th January 2005.

At the Indo Bar (http://www.towerhamlets.gov.uk/templates/services/services-detail.cfm?sid=2361).

All Dissensus members and lurkers welcome...

Well its Jons thread, so lets call it Wednesday.

I've asked the good Dr K-punk to come down too, and he'll be bringing infinite thought along too (if shes up for it).
