    Oh sure, but I was only after the muffins so I gave all the money etc back. :p

    Hmm, if you were at BUCK you might well have seen me anyway without realising it. :p

    To be honest, I can't remember. A lot of BUCK is a bit of a blur; maybe it was the cider. :p Rings a very vague bell, but I was too shy to talk to most people I didn't already know.

    Only in this fandom would wearing a bright yellow shirt with enormous (and obviously female) eyes on the front be considered "subtle". :p

    Nice to see you all again! This must surely be our largest meet yet! I don't think they can really be called 'mini' any more :p

    Any thoughts about the venue? With that number of people coming, I think the only alternative is The Postal Order, the coffee places are too small. For those of you who know it, which pub do you prefer? I'm generally happy with The Slug, except for the background music which made it hard to hear people sometimes. And the lack of fruit teas :mad:

    The S&L seemed nice enough for the most part, though I agree with you about the difficulty in hearing people sometimes. It seemed a small step up in class (and prices) from The PO but on the minus side it didn't seem to sell muffins. :eek: Presumably it will be rather busier on a Saturday, but if we have the meet around 2.30 again, things should have started to calm down after lunch.

    The barman seemed mildly tetchy at the start when we took a while to decide what to order, but after that he and the other staff were fine. Near the end, when there were only three or four of us left, the woman who came to clear our table had a brief chat with LunasNightmare about his Twilight plushie -- she didn't know what it was, but she did say it was nice. :)

    Really, all I ask for is a place where I'm not going to feel unsafe in a pony shirt, where we won't be glared at for making one drink last two hours, which isn't 18+ and where the staff aren't actively hostile. Both pubs seem to qualify on that score.

    Yea, I agree. Both places were fine really, so I don't mind too much, however the S&L was a little more pricy (the drinks were sort of right on the limit of being affordable, and I probably wouldn't buy any food there). The PO also has the benefit that the WiFi seemed to work most of the time.

    Thank you to everyone! It was impressive to see what I think is a record turnout for Worcester. :) Sorry I was a bit out of it for the last hour or so -- I haven't been well recently and tbh I was getting extremely tired. But it was still a good day, absolutely. I hope everyone made/makes it home safely. :)
