Hiya afp,

I've been away for a while, partly due to holidays and partly to the
unexpected demise of my modem.  I was without access for two and a half
weeks, and really missed you lot *sniff*.

But now I'm back, and trying to organise a meet to celebrate my
birthday.  It will definitely be on the 17th of August (the meet, that
is, not my birthday).  My birthday actually falls on the Glorious
Twelfth - which seems like a more appropriate date for Alex TEH, for
some reason >:)

Anyhow, the plan is shaping up to be something like this:

Afternoon - go and see Independence Day somewhere in the West End

Late Afternoon/Early Evening - get a meal at Pizza Hut or whatever

Evening - get drunk and be silly

But I need some help with this, as I don't know the West End very well
at all, at all.  I'd like to find a nice pub, where we're likely to get
a table or two on a Saturday night, and where the music isn't so loud
that conversation is impossible.  Somewhere in the Leicester Square area
would be favourite.  Any ideas?  We should then be able to find a nearby
eaterie in which to start off the evening.

Your advice would be much welcomed, and your presence even more so :-)
If we manage to arrange this, I'll put an .announce up asap.

Bye for now,

( .. _which_ Saturday, precisely? I'm assuming interested parties may
already know- otherwise, just ask Karen, I guess.. --mpk)

Okay, this is the plan for Saturday, which will be put on an .announce
as sson as possible.

For those of you who would like to see Independence Day with us (1) in
the afternoon, we'll be meeting outside the Odeon Leicester Square at
1:30 (the showing begins at 2 o'clock).  I have been warned that we will
definitely need to book seats, as this will be a very busy showing, so
anyone who wants to come along will need to mail me before 19:00 on
Wednesday which is when I will be reserving the seats.  

- From the cinema, we will probably head in the direction of Chinatown and
grab something to eat.  This will be an interesting challenge, as I'm
not going to book a table ('Saturday night?  Ten people?  And you want a
table _now_? Hat! Hat! Hat!').

We will then meet anybody who just wants to turn up for the evening in
the Virtual Worlds Bar at the Trocadero, at 7:30-ish.  Then, if I have
my way, we will go and find a pub which does quaint things like draught
beer.  And I will get drunk, and Adrian will look young, and Colette
will be worshipped, and Emmet will flirt.  Just another afpmeet, really
:-)

Hope to see you there,

VV
