Default The Mission compatible BE Meet Up (Mission Impossible)

So most of us missed the chance to meet Mission last evening as she couldn't make it, so I propose another meet up thats definitely compatible with her schedule

It will be on a Monday or a Saturday (to avoid bouncing).

It will be at least 1 hour away from Jumeriah 1 (I'm thinking Al Ain?)

We need to try and find somewhere with a happy hour that runs from 12am-3am.

Easy Innit??

Just spat water on my screen.

We need Mission to give us the list of requirements for things like; drinks available, dance floor size, temperature, parking facilities etc.

You know perfectly well despite everything she'd still not turn up

Because of something to do with bouncing.

YOU BUNCH OF P*SS TAKERS

once again i will set the record straight!! I have never said i will come and then not turned up without saying i will not be there (unlike some others *cough* DUBS & IKN*cough*)....i have only ever been to 1 pre-organised meet up in which if i remember correctly both MILLY and SCAMPY were a no show....and in that meet up i met IBK and BRAIN for the first time and we three had a blast!
Since then i have met IBK a few times, again with MILLY and SCAMPY being a no show
So you all need to stick that in your pipes and smoke it
SHED i would definitely like to meet you one of these days In Shaa Allah

Unfortunately will probably never happen as I go to football on saturdays and am normally traveling on Mondays. Add to that I’m never out after 10pm .

Well, if anyone's interested (totally out of 'left field') - I'll be in Dubai for the very first time ever from 27 Oct to 3 Nov.

The Shed claims he knows me so I'll be trying to hook up with him, but I'd like to meet more of you if I can........

Suggestions gladly received.

Your ability and apparent desire to function on minimal sleep is commendable.

What if we went on another night to satisfy your need to bounce to be fit?
