Wellington Cabal is Best Cabal? Tuesday 19/11/19

Post by Fat Old Git »

For one night only. Fat Old Git in Wellington and in need of food and a quiet beverage (or 3).

I have to work the following day so can't stay out or misbehave too much.

Who's in?

Excellent. Any venue suggestions? Last one I attended was at the Fork and Brewer iirc.

Wilderbeast, we'll work out a special secret sign or similar closer to the time so we can recognize each other. Even if it's just a post on the night saying fat bastard at the corner table under the picture of the dogs playing poker.

Good idea, though I was looking forward to roaming the bar asking if anyone knew a “Fat Old Git”

You have to be careful with that though, otherwise you might suddenly realize you're sitting at a mumsnet table.

I think at one stage we just used to ask people if they were coog.

Would love to, but I have contract work to do on Tuesday nights and I'm off to Brisbane at 6am the next morning.

Enjoy.

Holiday. Catching up with jdogscoop and other chums for one of our annual punting competitions. I'm taking in a day at the Aus v Pakistan test on the Thursday of that week too for a nice little bonus.

Kiweez, yes that's the one. Why did I think GB was there? He was an earlier one at the same venue I think.

I reckon you should stay another day just to confirm she's all ok after doing the marathon, but perhaps give her some space in the evening to re bond with the children...

Yeah I wish but that is what Monday 18th is for dammit. Gotta get the Mrs back to work on Wednesday in order to keep me in the manner to which I have become accustomed - so to speak.
