    I've just noticed that the late August date is during a bank holiday weekend, that (and my impatience!) has made me decide to go for 28/7: this Saturday!

    @Loganberry please move this to Confirmed Meets

    Thread moved! :)

    As far as I know, I'm still on for this. Should be easy enough to get there for 1pm. Looking forward to it!

    Thanks for the confirmation! I'll be there, as long as my rail replacement bus from Derby behaves. I'm also looking forward to it. :)

    Yeah, I'm certainly up for this and it's right after payday so couldnt come at a better time. I'll ask Katie and see if she wants to tag along too.

    Out of interest, has anyone been to Grill and Flames this year? They're apparently under new management since last year's Meal Meet, so it's a bit of a step into the unknown. :p

    The TripAdvisor reviews seem pretty good, though, and though the slight over-reliance on Indian food seems still to be in place, the desserts seem to be very popular indeed. Also, it's a pound cheaper than it was last year! :D (£8.95 plus drinks.)

    Edit: looking more closely, it seems that the lunchtime price reduction may be connected to the fact that the menu is smaller than in the evening -- eg the "Live Cooking Stations" that do steaks, burgers etc are not available at lunchtime. The lunch menu is a bit more snack-based -- but as it's still all-you-can-eat, I doubt that'll be a problem. :)

    Yep, I'm sure we won't go hungry, even if it doesn't have quite the same food available as before.

    Hopefully they have mango mousse again.

    Aren't we doing that anyway? :p We can't spend the whole meet there as they'll have other bookings (the website says we get about 1h 45m), hence the plan to move to Bolero afterwards. Glad you can make it, anyway! :)

    Also, fair warning, given what happened at last year's Meal Meet: I will be wearing a pony shirt, and I won't be hiding behind other people in an attempt to pretend I'm a fan of a totally different cartoon. ;)

    Who needs these big flashy overseas conventions, eh? WorcesterMealMeetCon will leave them all in the dust! :D

    I don't think anyone hid behind another cartoon or fan of said last time, per se. The fellow just spotted an unrelated shirt and someone ended up talking on a subject I... I mean "they"... can't shut up about. :D

    Heh, I actually meant me as far as the "hiding" bit went. You may remember that I rather sneaked out as you were chatting to the guy. Not happening this time!

    Still not sure I'd call it hiding. Merely taking the opportunity to exit while someone else monopolised the conversation, maybe?

    See y'all tomorrow! My train arrives at 12:59 so I might arrive a minute of two late, if it doesn't get delayed...

    Don't worry, we'll make sure we don't eat all the food before you get there.

    Probably. ;)

    Morning, everypony! :) Weather looks like a mixture of sunshine and blustery showers -- it's currently dry here, but the radar definitely shows it won't stay that way. A very different feel to yesterday -- much cooler and fresher. See everyone in a few hours!

    My train has been cancelled! This means that'll I'll have to come at either 12:24 or 13:24, at the moment I'm thinking of the latter

    Logan: here's what I was talking about last time with HENWICK

    Sorry to hear that! I guess those of us who are here should go in at 1pm anyway, then, so they don't think we're not coming. If you do get the later train, we'll see you at 1:30-ish I imagine.
    Ah, I see. How very odd. No idea why that shows up on a public timetable.

    If I take the earlier train, will anypony be around in that part of town? Not sure where the best place for pre-meet would be, maybe just going into the restaurant early
