I know that no shellsuits are allowed, so you're out of luck, son...

You and Marlon will have to stay at home and pretend you're in Glasgow, with a few cans of Tennents ;)

Should have stayed at the artto grant.Indian restaurant is part of it.free pakora in the bar when you order a bottle of wine :D
If anyone up for a meal (Friday about 6 or 7ish pm) I will book my cousins restaurant for us .all seated together ( it's a really good Italian place) and probably won't cost us more than £20 a head.

Booked The Alexander thursday 11th so I will not be tired from the trip for the weekend (and ofc will need all my energy to beat Muffin in pool and poker)

I have booked the Artto from Friday to Monday.

I know Tart and John are booked there too for fri and Sat

Also Lee and Nat fri Sat too.

(but let them confirm themselves, I will draw their attention to the post)

Livingthedream (Jas) may be joining us too . Not sure if he is taking a hotel as he is relatively local.

I have a few friends that are local that will join us also, I will let you know this asap, to add to numbers.
