The World's Shortest Pub Crawl: 15th Nov 2013
AKA Liam's belated and Peter Corlett's early celebratory birthday drinkie

I was away for my actual birthday, so flatmate Peter Corlett & I are going to have a joint do half way between our respective birthdays instead.

Here's the plan:

• 6:30PM: early-evening Sri Lankan meal in Adchaya (164 Merton High Street, South Wimbledon, London, SW19 1AZ)

• 7:30PM: a couple of beers in the Trafalgar: http://www.thetraf.com/ (about ¼ mile away)

• 9PM: a few more beers in the Sultan (http://www.hopback.co.uk/our-pubs/the-sultan.html) (about ½ mile away)

Total walking time: probably about 15min.

Nearest Tubes: South Wimbledon (Northern Line, Zone 3) for Adchaya & the Trafalgar; Colliers Wood (the stop before South Wimbledon) for the Sultan.

Last Northbound Tube: about midnight. (Which conveniently is also last orders at the Sultan.)

Any questions, email me: lproven@gmail.com
Can't find us? Text me: 07939-087884.

Bring a friend. Bring lots. Bring none. Up to you.

Warning: program of events will contain beer, curry & grumpy middle-aged gits. Adult content advisory. Some settling may occur in transit.

There's a Fess Bouc event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/678121528887056/678121532220389

Excellent. I'll try to come, as I've not been to the Sultan for many years. Will let you know where I'll join you.

There was a shorter pub crawl just last weekend at Novacon; one pub.

:-) I attended the Doctor's Orders, where on Sunday there was a chap having a quiet beer with a friend who looked very much like the one sitting on your hat in that usericon. That's a narrow definition of a good pub, but it is now one of mine.

Don't know if that counts as the crawl, however. Indeed I am not sure if a single pub can count as a pub crawl at all. I mean, surely the crawl part implies some degree of travel, no?

Oh... I can't come down to this but have very happy memories indeed of Wimbledon south Asian restaurants. Yum!

I'm hoping I can make it along, if only for the beer portion as I can probably get to the Trafalgar by 7:30.

Huh, complicated in that it's the day Barbarella (who you surely know, themadcatlady is in London, which is very infrequent (once every several years) -we are going to be at the Knight Templar in ... is it near Holborn?. Do I have your number, just in case, though?

I can't make it, I'm afraid, but have a great time and say hi to Peter for me. (I knew you knew him, but I didn't realise he was your flatmate.)

Aww man, if I didn't have things to do up here on Saturday morning... Beer and grumpy middle-aged gits is usually a winning combination!

Tell the esteemed Mr. Corlett to buy the both of you a celebratory pint from me and I'll settle up with him next time we bump into each other (which probably won't be long off...)
