You've never worried about boring us before


Careful Missy, you're white wine may turn to vinegar.

That could be a good location for a future meet up then.


It's a long time since we had a Purestorm Curry Night. I think the last one must have been about three years ago in Nottingham, when the sadly missed JaneWeiss was warming the forums up for Laylarc.

Red Chilli, ten minutes walk from Tower Gateway and just north of News International at Wapping, is sufficiently off the beaten track to be reasonably priced yet the menu offers some very interesting choices and it is usually reasonably busy with locals. However as it is a bit out of Central London I don't think it would be very popular for a networking meet.

There is a Masala Zone near Covent Garden, how does that sound? Been there a few times and really like it.

Expensive!!!

If I was eating in that area I'd opt for Persian instead and go to the Simurgh. Even jitka, who is a head chef, rates that one and we have eaten there on our last two London trips.

It's probably best to start a seperate thread to see if anyone is actually interested in a networking meet in a restaurant. I suspect you may not get too many takers. Only about a dozen pitched up for the last one, which was held after a summer Sunday afternoon pub meet. Just about all attendees had worked with each other beforehand so there was only one stranger in the small group.

PS. It's unlikely that I will be in London much now until after the Olympics, so don't put my name on any list.

So what wine are you then?

Regarding a restaurant idea, I may scrap the idea..... The pub idea sounds better. I'll start a new thread shortly for a new meet up.

Sorry for the late reply, only just got back home after 4 days of workshops. It was great to catch up with some old friends, and put faces to names. Sorry I didn't get round to talk to everyone and as always you meet a couple of people on the way out as you are rushing to get a train that it would have been good to talk to.

Hope to see you all again soon.

Andrew.

Clearly, I have completely missed the opportunity to meet up with some Stormers.

When will the next meet up be?
