Brother Zoolkhan is visiting London on the night of the England vs. Portugal match.

A few of FU2 are hoping to get together for a few beers and watch the match. Hopefully some of PIE will be able to come along, but anyone is welcome to join us.

I will post a venue later today or tomorrow (I am going to check out a few places today).

No doubt all venues will be packed so I would recommend getting in early.

More info to follow...

and if anyone has a good venue to recommend pls post here.

Maggot.

Heh Maggot the pub we had the big EVE London ****up in has a GIGANTIC screen for football games.

Unfortunately can't remember the name right now but it was on Charing Cross Road. (if you find the old thread the name will be there)

I will try and make it... it simply depends on how quickly I can get there after work...

Hardin/Maggot

Sounds like Montagu Pyke, used to be known as The Moon Under Water, it's a JD Weatherspoon pub. It'll be heaving but beer is cheap and only a short stagger from Leicester Square/Tottenham Court Road. Does anyone know if there are some open air venues, i.e. Trafalgar Square showing it on big screens? Much nicer outside in the fresh air with a brown paper bag, maybe just the wino in me Exclamation

Thx Hardin.

I have just been to check out that venue (goes by both names mentioned by Hardin and Isk). That is one hell of a big screen, plus lots of smaller screens dotted around. Its right next to St Martin's School of Art (my gf's old haunt).

Given the weather forecast I reckon this is a great choice.

I checked behind the bar and all the reserved spots have gone, but if we get there early I reckon we can find a good spot (I am hoping to grab one one of the tables on the right hand side).

I will be there shortly after 5:00 to get fully tanked up for the game which starts at 7:45 :\ Some mates from work will be coming along.

To ease identification I will be sporting a cap with the letters "enjoi" on the front.

See you there.

Let me know if anyone needs any more info.

Sounds good, I'd be up for this for definate seeing as I'm off work this week.

I'm a bit scared though, there's some dodgy people in London, dodgy Eve folk included Very Happy

Could we maybe set up a channel for this meet in advance, just so I can check you're not a) psycho's or b) ****ing sad/boring Razz

It'd be a shame to waste valuable drinking time.

It's okay Iratus, I can vouch for Maggot he was top tiddleywinks champion at school, has one of the largest smurf collections in Western Europe and almost had a girlfriend, once. (Am I still in your corp mags??? Laughing )

OOC: I believe we are "normal", like a drink, watching football, playing video games, some of us even have families!! Don't panic there won't be any deliverance style "squeal little piggy" scences, unless Maggot starts on the Tequila shots Wink

Don't be so sure Wink

Seriously though mate don't be too scared to come along - we already had one meet in this pub and about 80 EVEers turned up and most were pretty normal.

One thing I have been told about this pub is that it apparently gets jammed for the football (my brother went there to see Turkey England play) so try and get there early and hold a spot for me... I am coming straight from work so wont get there till 6.30/7.00 at the earliest.

Have a good night guys...

As i am @ the GF's at the moment and she lives just outside London, i would have put in an appearance - had the football not been on and London will be totally packed tonight...

Have a drink for me!

Doh my cap was on, even though the concord officers made us remove them on entry.

Shame we missed you foul slaver. But a tough venue to meet anyone.
