Brockley Central Drinks IV: Electric Boogaloo

It's been a while, but Brockley's Kate, Jon and Nick cordially invite you to the fourth Brockley Central drinks night:

16th December, 2008 - Jam Circus - 8pm

Apologies for the short notice and for any Christmas parties it may clash with, but it's taken the three of us about four months to agree a date, so we should be thankful for small mercies.

The venue is Jam Circus, because, even if we get relatively few takers, it should still be a good night at what is a consistently good venue.

We still intend to take in Brockley's other attractions at future events.

For those who've not been before, don't worry about cosy cliques or having to share a bag of peanuts with curmudgeonly 'anons', the experience from the previous three nights has been that everyone who actually comes along is lovely.

And for those who have, this time we will be making a proper sign, so hopefully no more of that business of sidling up to people and asking if they're 'with Brockley Central.'

We hope to see as many of you as possible.

Oh dear clashes with the Wickham Quiz.

Can Friends Disunited do without me?

Decisions decisions.....

Brockley Kate said...

W00t! And it's my birthday that week too ...

Tamsin said...

Already double booked that night (or treble if you count the usual Tuesday evening Tai Chi). If too many people can't make it what about calling one for the dank empty days in January. (Isn't it a date in the third week that is statistically the most depressing?)

Headhunter said...

My birthday on the 14th and I'll be in Lisbon the weekend and not back til late on the 16th so have a good time without me...

osh said...

patrick1971 said...

Yes I too have other Christmas drinks that evening but will make it to number V, hopefully.

I'll come if all the regulars are in attendance

max said...

I'll do my best to come round this time.

I'll be there with my wife. First timers - be nice! Barry.

Brockley Jon said...

Barry, you make it sound like we're swingers! ;)

Anonymous said...

Oh - you're not swingers? Sorry - wrong blog ;-) But we'll still join you for a drink. Barry.

As a curmudgeonly Anon, is there anyone who wouldn't share their peanuts with me? :-(

drakefell debaser said...

Only if you don't like roasted peanuts...

nobbly brick said...

I have a previous appointment to have a 'Prince Albert' inserted in the Ladywell tattoo/piercing parlour. I wouldn't want to disturb you all with the clank of my metalwork.

Richard Elliot said...

See you there. Yipeee!

Hugh said...

Car keys in the fruit bowl?

toshy said...

I might come and make you all feel old.

:D

max said...

Is this a brilliant excuse for not buying a round of drinks?

Anonymous said...

I'll come if Headhunter and Catman do.

Headhunter said...

Why? What are you expecting to happen between me and Cat Man? Nice to be in demand though, however I won't be there this time... Cat Man never comes, he'd probably get lynched if he did.

The Cat Man said...

Exactly, pelted to death by dare I say it, mung beans.

Anonymous said...

Because you're two of my favourite posters, and for me not having you there would mean a very tenuous "brockley central drink"

Anonymous said...

I just want to see if Catman really looks like Rigsby of Rising Damp.

I'm thinking more a male version of Jocelyn Wildenstein

Genius!

Richard said...

I'll be sure to be in that night, most likely behind the bar though. I've met a couple of BC-ers, but will be good to put (web)names to some faces

The Cat Man said...

I look like a greek god because thats what I am

fabhat said...

Greek??? But cat man - we thought you were british through and through....surely you look more like a british bulldog.

The Cat Man said...

good point

Tyrwhitt Michael said...

......chewing a wasp no doubt.

Brockley Kate said...

I want to know if Monkeyboy will be gracing us with his presence ...

Headhunter said...

Monkeyboy never comes. He is one of BC's great enigmas...

Headhunter said...

I recently emailed Cllr Sue Luxton about something with my real name and mentioned that I was a poster here. Her immediate response was "Are you Monkeyboy?". You have a lot to live up to, my man....

Monkeyboy said...

I'm a mystery, wrapped in an enigma with a dusting of fake snow and a nice Christmas ribbon.

I've actually got a crimbo doo with a project team I'm working with. Frankly I'd rather not bother with that but I'm committed now.

Besides I'm not sure I'll be accepted into the media elite bosom, or any bosom for that matter. I'm just a lowly Engineer in an ill fitting M&S suit.

HH, you still got a job then? or are you offering clients two bond dealers for the price of one?

tyrwhitt ali said...

I'd love tocome but I've got my big work do that evening. Darnit!

Anonymous said...

I really want to come, but I hope someone could give a copper-bottomed assurance that regulars will not be abused.

Monkeyboy said...

HH, I've just read my post back. I'm not having a dig, just wondered if financial recruitment is a bit dicey at the mo?

Hugh said...

I'd like to come but I'm shy.

I'd like to come but I'm impotent.

k'boom zzzzz.

Headhunter said...

Yeah it's bargain basement, 2 for 1 bankers! In fact anyone need a cleaner? Dog walker? Someone who'll go down on all 4s and be a coffee table in your living room? they'll do anything for money...

It is a bit dicey. Still got a job at the moment though

Sounds good, can't wait to come and meet everyone.
See you there.

Hugh said...

Headhunter, hang in there, fella. City lawyers are waking up to the crunch and the sackings have started. The Brox Crew need to face this down like it was a Friday night in Plumstead after closing time.

Anyone coming to this then?

Brockley Kate said...

Well Jon, Nick and I will be there!

please Catman... please

The Cat Man said...

Meaow!

max said...

I'm afraid I won't be able to make it tonight, I'm on babycare. I have a bottle of Ch√Ęteauneuf-du-Pape here though so when my daughter falls asleep I'll raise a toast to you all.

Tyrwhitt Michael said...

I'm afraid my quiz team needs me. See you all in the New Year no doubt.

drakefell debaser said...

Good to meet you all last night and thanks to Richard for the nibbles.

To the avid Chelsea fan, whos name I can't remember...dream on mate ;]

Brockley Kate said...

Yes, great to meet everyone! I think I drank Jam Circus out of Brooklyn Lager ...

patrick1971 said...

Very sorry I couldn't make it; will really try hard to make V.
