I'm about confused about what is being proposed. Is it drinks on Thursday 15th or brunch on Friday 16th?

Urm, either Drinks 15th, Brunch 16th or Drinks 16th.

I'm easy like Sunday (Saturday) morning and not generally that fussed...purely drinks allows most people to escape if they don't enjoy it or think you're (collective) weird. Brunch is a bit more of a commitment.

Either way, you're coming so just tell me dates and suggestions.

I'm ok for any one or more of those 3, but would prefer drinks 15th or brunch 16th.

You want me to make suggestions to you?

I'd prefer the Thursday evening. Unlikely to be able to make the Friday.

Right.

Might be worth looking at booking this sooner rather than later given the rush of brunches that will inevitably happen after Ramadan. (If we vote for brunch)

Will also be worth booking an area / table at a bar if we choose to do that instead of a brunch.

I've attached my geek sheet of who's available / not available...

Preference between Brunch or Drinks now and suggestions of locations please folks!

No explanation of what on earth your colours mean. To reiterate, I am only available on the Thursday evening and that's not what the table, no matter what the colours are supposed to mean, shows.

Frankly, people are so negative on here and so keen to put everyone else down all the time, that I'm not keen on going at all.

I'll go, prefer drinks on the Thursday, since I can scoot back early next day to Abu Dhabi. Otherwise it's a all day and overnight job on the Friday/Saturday.

My mistake, the pinky/red is a no, green is a yes, yellow is a no (you said Friday was unlikely, but I thought that wasn't concrete enough for pinky/red).

You'll probably find it'll like when we went to Loca (?) before, just a good little group of people who aren't the boring/negative/rude types?

Wont be the same if noone will drink Pride with me.

I will be happy to go for drinks on 15th, then a brunch on the 16th I don't have any suggestions for a venue though as I will be the new kid (OK, middle aged bloke) on the block

I am doing brunch on the 2nd Sept at Al Qasr anyway, if anybody wants to join they are welcome.
I am ok for drinks on the Thursday 15th. Loca is good as long as you book a seating area :-) I can't stand for 3 hours in 5 inch heels
