As our regulars will know, we’ve had to change from our usual venue, Paparazzi, due to it closing. The restaurant was particularly good for our meet-ups. There was always enough space and the staff were always welcoming and most helpful in accommodating our widely changing head counts!
This has given us the opportunity to consider where we will hold our future meet-ups. We’ve been holding them at Coffee Exchange on Athol Street for the last two months, who have been most accommodating for us.
Having thrown a few venues around (not literally) at our last meeting, we came up with a short-list of possibilities:
Remain at Coffee Exchange. It’s light and airy, central and the staff are friendly.
Good food, friendly staff with lots of room which we can book ahead of time. Bar George is on Hill Street (behind Athol Street) and is pretty central.
Jabberwocky are on Duke Street so are fairly central and have a room upstairs which we might be able to use.
A new place which might be worth trying. It’s on Strand Street, further down towards The Strand Centre.
We’re looking for somewhere with lots of space so we can add more chairs, fairly easy parking and a central location so we can all make it safely!
We’ve decided to create a short survey to gauge your reaction. As it’s Christmas, we need to contact the venues fairly soon to make sure they can accommodate us. So please take a minute or two to vote for your preferred venue, or add your own idea:
[ sorry, voting closed ]
We’ll take the result on Thursday 5th December and contact the preferred venue to make sure they can accommodate us. If the venue is unavailable, we may just need to try your second option 😉
As usual, we’ll remind everyone and publish the chosen venue in the week preceding December’s Third Thursday, which will be on 19 December 2013.
