Expat and Anglophone Meet Up Take II

So it's been a couple of weeks since the first meet up, about time for a second I reckon...

Date and location:

Saturday 14th June 8.30pm.

Saturday seems the best day as it means people can relax and get drunk, an essential part of meeting new people. And on a Saturday, the evening could continue into morning in a different location.

So, talking about location, I think Allegretto is still probably the best idea as the food is cheap and good and the atmosphere also decent. But if anyone has any other suggestions, feel free to chime in. 

Please confirm either by leaving a message here or emailing me at info at pacificfive dot co dot uk 

Look forward to meeting up with everyone again and also any new arrivals.

The boat trip is still something I'd like to get organised as well but we're a bit short of people. There are about 7 of us who I can say are definitely interested so we need around 8 people more otherwise the cost is too prohibitive. So anyone else interested in that, let me know please.

I'm in. Either day is fine at this point.

Yay, count me in.

I prefer Saturday. I personally can get drunk quite late on Wednesday but really it's not a "meet up"--or "healthy"--if everyone else has gone home by that point.

Cool-I'm definitely leaning towards the Saturday as well. Not much fun if people can't drink and be, well, drunk...

Either night would be good for us. Count us in.

Ok. It's going to be the Saturday.

Be there with bells on.

Matt said...

I assume the bells are so we can recognise you.

Despistada said...

No! Where I´m from, the bells are a fashion statement.

If you go to http://lolchile.blogspot.com you will find a picture of me that is fairly recent, except I did the smart thing and dyed my hair black.

Despistada said...

Smart for Chile... not like, smart for everyone.

Matt said...

Erin-are you coming with other people...can you let me know so I have a rough idea of numbers please.

i think we're going to be between 10 and 15 people if everyone comes along.

Despistada said...

Matt- although a couple of people have expressed interest, I would imagine perhaps two people will actually show up with me, tops.
