:idea:

It has been suggested that anyone interested in a meet up for members of this private forum that Friday 4th March in Birmingham would be the first available date for some.

Some need a hotel for the Friday night so here's a starting point for searching hotels in the city centre with WiFi a lounge bar and generally good facilities for under £50/night:

http://hotels.skyscanner.net/SearchResults.aspx?languageCode=EN&currencyCode=GBP&fileName=Birmingham&fileType=1&checkin=2011-03-04&checkout=2011-03-05&adults=1&rooms=1&pageSize=50&pageIndex=0&sort=Popularity-desc&showSoldOut=true&distance=2&facilities=1,3,15&view=hc_sr_summary&scroll=0&mapstate=contracted#languageCode=EN&currencyCode=GBP&fileName=Birmingham&fileType=1&checkin=2011-03-04&checkout=2011-03-05&adults=1&rooms=1&pageSize=50&pageIndex=0&sort=Popularity-desc&showSoldOut=true&highRate=51&lowRate=20&distance=2&facilities=1,3,15&view=hc_sr_summary&scroll=368&mapstate=contracted

Please vote here you're intentions for Friday 4th March so that we can all coordinate ourselves.

In the words of Nike - just do it!

Hello everyone, don't need a hotel as I live easy train ride away. Do I take it that the meet up place is the Bham central holiday inn lounge bar. (hope we dont stay there, beers awful and overpriced!) Not exactly a member of CAMRA but I do like a nice pint!

Thats the one Abbeyclub, smallbrook queensway, 5 min walk from New St Station. Im not proposing we stay at the hotel, plenty of other places to go, but what ever the group wants to do, we'll just go with the flow.

Last time I was there was for Uni and there was a bar that claimed to be the longest bar in Europe, anyone know what that is/was?

from memory it was the Wetherspoons, from an even shadier memory wasn't it near the house of fraser?
:) could be the one. Its a long bar but didnt realise it was claiming to be the longest in Europe

sounds familiar, was perfect for student days as they sell almost out of date - hence cheap - beer :)

Unfortunately I am working that day and evening and can't get out of it. Would love to be there but I hope there will be others I can get to. Have a great evening.

Shall we book somewhere for dinner Friday night then? Any suggestions anyone?
Top dining experience in Bham (providing you like Italian) is San Carlo's in Temple St but a bit pricey for a friday evening beer bash. Not too familiar with Brummie curry houses but the restaurants in the Chinese quarter by Digbeth bus station are supposed to be top notch and relatively cheap. (Can't beat a plate of singapore chow mein after a bellyfull of real ale!) I did say on my post last week that I would be coming and leaving on the train (from Telford) but as I have to drive to Winchester saturday morning I have booked a hotel for the night so will be there to the bitter end!
