Buddy in England
« on: October 27, 2015, 01:15:26 AM »
The original thread got lost in the great forum implode of 2015.

I know Buddy arrives 21st November but what is the plan?  Just trying to arrange getting to Leeds, staying somewhere etc?

What was the itinerary?

We hadn't really got one. So here we go.
Saturday. Stick local and do Temple Newsam during the day and Leeds in the afternoon/evening as we could do the Royal Armouries and then the German Beer keller..
Sunday. Suggestions
Monday. York museums and sight seeing
Tuesday. Suggestions.

Oops! Accidentally booked train and hotel...

Would really like to see Temple Newsam but I think I might miss you guys if you're going in the morning. However, I shall go alone if necessary and catch up with you over a stein or five...

Anyone ever been to BrewDog??? (that's a query, not a suggestion)

Yup quite a few Manchester, Shoreditch, Leeds, and Sheffield always good with a slightly older crowd and less pretentious than the usual craft beer bars/pubs.

Staying at the Colton... in a double just in case I get lucky. Dag?... Crow?... Mrs Git?...

Bouncing in via Manchester on the 20th. Will seek shelter at the Tank residence.

Totally up for Aromuries and Bierkellers.
Beer and cannons? Killer combo. 8)

Bouncing back out the same way I came in on the 25th.

Indeed!

Would it make a difference if I told you DJ is gonna make a surprise appearance in her belly-dancing outfit?

I'm not sure. I'm pretty much on call with what I have been working on for the last few month between the 14th and the 5th. However I pop over to Leeds all the time at a moments notice for drinks so that is no big issue if I am free.

Oh yeah Guardian if you want information on the easiest and cheapest way to get to Leeds from Manchester airport let me know and I point you in the right directions.

Afraid not.  Buddy and G85 would be quite enough to entice me, if I were able to make it.  Mind you, I'd love to meet DJ.

We were hoping to keep it a secret until you arrived in the UK.
