YOB meet up on St Matt's Day

Post by Great Plum » Mon Aug 21, 2006 2:01 pm

Hi,

just looking at the CHA website, and I see there is a meetup for YOB's after St Matt's Day in the Green Man Pub... which pub, where?

Why not just the spoons somewhere near Cannon Street that people seem to frequent after the marching? ;)

It is indeed Friday 22nd Sept.

The Green Man is the Wetherspoons at Bank tube (so not far from Cannon Street station).

I'll try and get some directions/ a map posted on the CHA website.

Thanks Miss A...

I thought it might be that one - I have ended up there on St Matt's Days for about the last 5 years or so!

My family and our American cousins were ejected from a Wetherspoons pub eating area in Stratford for being there with children at 9.15pm. I have vowed vengeance upon them. The pub chain that is, not the American cousins. Or the children.

Yes, 30 is quite fine apparently! :)

Just to let you know that apparently the school are marching to the Mansion House this year and not the Guildhall... can anyone confirm the route?

The thing that annoys me is that in some Wetherspoons you can take children in but others you can't. We walked into one recently whilst on holiday with the kids in tow and got set upon within about a second of entering and told we could not bring them in. Earllier in the week we had been in another Wetherspoons and had a meal with the kids.

This Wetherspoons is in the City of London which has it's own laws and police force. When I worked in the City long ago the publicans were warned by a senior police officer that if any person was seen drinking outside in the vicinity of their pub then they would be effectively banned as landlords in the City. Such a ban would of course stand against them if they tried to get a licence anywhere else in the country.

I think that this was a personal vendetta of the officer concerned.

As for children in pubs - it is a question of the law. If the pub has a suitable area for children then OK, otherwise no. I don't think it was necessarily Wetherspoons being awkward.
Equally, don't anyone jog on an east-west street in Palm Springs or a police officer is required to and will arrest you. You, Kate and cj, are also prohibited from parachuting on a Sunday in Florida whilst I can jump as many times as I like; Florida under Judd Bush (the President's brother) is sexist in that respect.
I come before you to stand behind you
and tell you something I know nothing about.
So pull up a chair and sit on the floor,
admission is free so pay at the door.
