Twee8’s first birthday.http://www.flickr.com/photos/emilywebber/4173168469/ katybeale 13 October 2010, 1:52 pm ahhh what a lovely cake! yeahhackney 13 October 2010, 1:56 pm Ok, I’ve added 4th to the Doodle – just in case that’s better, please can you update if you have already answered katybeale 13 October 2010, 1:58 pm possibly… :)IT IS MY BIRTHDAY on the 5th.Just sayin’ 3djamie 13 October 2010, 2:02 pm What’s that fucking Doodle thing? (I’m only swearing so its in-keeping with the site) #fuckyeah ewebber 13 October 2010, 2:10 pm this thing http://doodle.com/ttdwt3n8rbd9dm4x just put your name in and tick dates kuxi 13 October 2010, 2:26 pm ticked! couldn’t edit my old entry… btw, ale cake? ewebber 13 October 2010, 2:36 pm If I ever get back into my flat, then ale cake is a possibility hackneye 13 October 2010, 5:58 pm I’ve filled out the poll. Intriguingly, a typo has rendered me \Donalf”. Basically I *can* do Dec 4th. Nov 13th is a definite no I’m away. Nov 20th is an outside chance; partner is in S of France. Depends on childcare. But in principle I think this a great idea. Would be lots of fun.” ewebber 13 October 2010, 6:02 pm @hackneye – I think I might call you Donalph from now onso 4th Dec is in the lead at the moment @philsheard @patricksmithjournalist what says you? Wonder if we can actually get @monkchips along marty21 13 October 2010, 6:16 pm If it’s a roaming feast I’m sure I could make some of it. ollie 13 October 2010, 6:18 pm I almost certainly have a game of rugby. But I could probably make it along later. philsheard 17 October 2010, 8:44 pm I’ve had another go – made a mistake first time, I’m at Interesting North on Sat 13th so I can only make the Dec date. ewebber 18 October 2010, 1:27 pm @philsheard ok, I’ve deleted your first entry.So are we on for 4th Dec, any objections? @kuxi @ollie @3djamie @monkchips @katybeale @hackneye and anyone else? katybeale 18 October 2010, 4:49 pm Sorry – I have a wedding.But please go ahead and celebrate without me if need bex yeahhackney 18 October 2010, 5:27 pm Boo Hiss – you are coming on weds though, right? ewebber 28 October 2010, 6:42 am Ok y’all put 4th Dec in your diaries and suggest some pubs here please Once I have pub suggestions, we’ll put them all in the mix and choose a route stephenhignell 28 October 2010, 11:27 am Done and done! My favourite pubs are the Prince George and Spurstowe (sometimes Biddle Bros or Duke of Wellington) but part of the fun of this is trying new ones. janice 28 October 2010, 12:20 pm i’ve always thought the chesham arms 15 Mehetabel Rd looked cozy…. alexpink 28 October 2010, 5:45 pm For me, The Prince George, The Cock Tavern, The Marksman, The Camel, The Approach, to name a few. ewebber 28 October 2010, 5:58 pm Biddles – is me being lazyI’d like to visit Spurstow again, the Baring arms is nice, the Wenlock, Duke of Wellington, Jolly Butchers, Shacklewell – before it goes.. um, there are more alexpink 28 October 2010, 6:06 pm Biddles is too easy and the beer choice aint great. All the others sound good though. Lets do them all 🙂 alexpink 28 October 2010, 6:08 pm PS I like the Scolt too yeahhackney 29 October 2010, 6:50 am Maybe the Haggerston too philsheard 29 October 2010, 8:02 am It’s booked! As a token E8’er these are all new to me – sounds ace! ewebber 6 November 2010, 9:02 am The map of suggested pubs looks like this http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&msa=0&msid=102623496307361397312.0004945e5035fc95d4951&ll=51.549111,-0.075703&spn=0.030476,0.070724&z=14 – Does anyone have any to add before the final route is decided stephenhignell 7 November 2010, 5:57 pm Map looks great! Might say the Jolly Butchers and Coach & Horses in Stokey could be interchangeable, both good for different reasons and depending on space. stephenhignell 7 November 2010, 6:05 pm Oh, I went to the Shackleton Arms the other day – sour variety of beers but the atmosphere’s definitely worth it! They want to draw ppl back in but are running dry of ideas – hope they don’t disappear. ewebber 8 November 2010, 1:51 pm For @philsheard ‘s benefit 😉 here are some new dates…. this will make the final decisionhttp://doodle.com/hchutbch4nqwxzvz@kuxi @ollie @katybeale @stephenhignell @monkchips @3djamie @alexpink @patricksmithjournalist @marty21 @hackneye and others patricksmithjournalist 8 November 2010, 1:58 pm Just to leap on this bandwagon long after it set off on the merry road to Bacchanalian adventure… I’m totally up for this. My househunting left me with something in E5 (not E8, but still) so it would be rude not join in a genuine pub crawl. I’d vote against the Haggerston, simply because it’s a grim pub, but yes to Jolly B which is a splendid addition to the Stokey scene. I might even make the case for the Old Ship, not least because it does English tapas (e.g. mini black pudding!) ewebber 8 November 2010, 2:00 pm @patricksmithjournalist can you add your availability to here http://doodle.com/hchutbch4nqwxzvz philsheard 10 November 2010, 9:36 am I’ve added me into the doodle but 4th looks like a clear winner – go ahead with that plan, I’ll be off pickling my liver on a stag anyway do so can cope with missing out on this time ewebber 11 November 2010, 7:26 am Ok 4th it isFrom the map it’s looking like the route is….The PemburyThe ShipThe SpurstowThe GeorgeThe HaggerstonThe Scolt HeadThe Duke of WellingtonAre people happy with that? and a 4pm start? alexpink 11 November 2010, 8:28 am Yes, happy with both. Good selection of boozers. kuxi 11 November 2010, 1:58 pm looks great hackneye 12 November 2010, 10:32 am Yes, I’m still in for the 4th. If you decide for the 11th, I’ll have to re-check but it should be okay. But 4th is a definite can-do. ewebber 12 November 2010, 10:35 am It’s definitely the 4th 3djamie 12 November 2010, 10:51 am sorry can’t make the 3rd but the 4th is good with me, will probably bring the ladies for 1 at the Pembury. ewebber 12 November 2010, 2:42 pm @3dJamie it’s definitely the 4th 😉 ewebber 17 November 2010, 7:43 am Slightly shorter event thread here: http://www.yeahhackney.com/twee8-birthday-pub-jaunt-sat-4th-dec-2010/ I’ll close this one now Comments are now closed for this post.
