So yeah I managed to get to the Penderels Oak last night to meet up with dha and the bedraggled remains of the london perl mongers that had survived the previous nights debauchery.
It's always nice to see everyone and although there were a number of notable absences it certainly all seemed to be going swimmingly.
Penderel's Oak was very crowded with sundry pissed up Office Folk and there appeared to be some large private party going on downstairs - I did toy with gate crashing but a cursory examination indicated that it probably wasnt my scene.
I probably had noticed this before and forgotten about it but the Pub has a Cash Point Machine - which could be considered either very public spirited or very cynical depending on your point of view. There is a pub near us in Hastings
that has a cash dispenser but you get a voucher out of it that gives you fifty pence off your next drink too
