Bodean's BBQ, Bayswater, London, 7pm, Sunday, May 3rd

Hi all,

The general consensus is that Bedford isn't going to happen. This isn't a problem. I've made contact with Olly and he'll be the guest of honour at Bodean's, Soho. It's a BBQ place with ribs, steak and all the goodness that is a good portion of meat.

I've rung the restaurant and provisionally booked for a table of 12 people for 7pm on Sunday 3rd May. I need to give a full confirmation by this time next week so all attendees will need to put their name forward.

It's a Sunday with a Bank Holiday next day so most will get the chance to stay on a Londonite's sofa/floor or book a hotel, of which London has loads. Travellodge have done Lucy and I great deals in the past. A room in somewhere near Leicester Square cost us something like 79, which is great for a central location. If you plan to drive, it might be worth parking up on the outskirts and getting the tube in. Anyone driving back the same night can do, which is why I went for 7pm. Trains are probably the most viable option unless you want a second mortage to pay for parking, others may know of some good places to park nearby.

There's a two hour seating for the table, which means the tables need to be clear by 9, which means a few cheeky drinks in the big smog for those who are going for it.


Don't be shy. Olly approves this message.

Potentially in. Although I need to confirm about a million things first.

Including the (no doubt) frightening train fare from the North East.

Re: Bodean's BBQ, Soho, London, 7pm, Sunday, May 3rd

I forgot to mention they cater for up to a max of 20 people.

Wow, a potential 19 people filling Olly full of drink and meat. :S

Also, if you come by train book now and you'll most likely get a discount.

I'm keen on this Roger. If a londoner could offer me a sofa or floor to sleep on it saves me getting to norwich about 3 or 4am. Or even 8am as one journey quoted me.

Hmmm, a Jethro burger? Does that mean it has a west country accent and tells really long jokes with crap punchlines??

No, it sings about Beanz sitting on a park bench eyeing little girls with bad intentions. *cough*

edit: or we can just go to the Fulham one? its 5 mins from Fulham Broadway tube (about 7 mins from where jamz and nath stayed at the last London meet up thingy)

Benneb: No its not Tony Romas IMHO its better and portions are a decent size but unfortunately there is no All you can Meat (TR's dont do it on bank hols anyway)

ExcessNeo:I'll check with my house mate if you can nab the futon upstairs
