Default Does anyone in wellington drink??

Or will we be on our own??

The bin's are heading north for the weekend at the end of May (22,23,24)

We get in late on Thursday and fly back to the mainland on Sunday.
Anyone fancy a pint over then weekend?

I know you fancy lot form the big smoke all just sit about sipping your lattes (and it's still just coffee with milk in it no matter how much you pay for it) but i have a kettle in the house. So if anyone would like to meet for a swift half or two let me know. Would be good to see how the other half lives

(oh i don't rant in real life you know.. it's the internet that brings out my bad side )


Oh and if anyone has any clue what the Bolton Hotel is like let me know, you can't beat a cheap hotel deal when you have no idea what you are booking!

So you arrive on a Thursday? Cool beans! I work in the CBD and can meet for latte-sipping or beer-quaffing at lunch. Friday after work is a good time too. How many bins are a-comin' north?

Only the 2 of us, trust me that is enough bins for the world to cope with. Any more would just be silly!

Look forward to seeing you all then!

Sweet as! If you want to hit the town in style, let us know which night and we'll get our babysitter all booked up well in advance.

Can't remember if the comedy festival is still going on at that time... it might well be!

The new 3C in Chews Lane Jolly nice place! Gets a bit noisy but it's a really nice (wine) bar.

In the absence of any other suggestions The new 3C in Chews Lane would seem a start!

We'll be in there from about 6ish on Friday for those who care to join us! We can work a plan from there.

I'm the geordie looking bloke (fat, miserable, does nothing but talk about fooball )

Or you could always find our pics on flickr

Look forward to seeing you then!

If the restaurant in the Bolton is anything to go by it will be fabulous - unless you are loaded though, eat elsewhere! We were treated (thank God) to dinner there and the bill for 4 was almost $500 for 2 starters, 4 main courses, 2 puds and 3 bottles of wine.
Have a great weekend - we can't make Friday, but I'm sure you will enjoy yourself - ignore the Welsh girls talk about being converted into a binge drinker - I blame all my misdemeanours (sp) on Stasia!
