Brockley Central Drinks - December 10th

After our usual amount of procrastination, the BC team have decided upon a date and venue for the next Brockley Central Drinks Night.

It's Jam Circus (330-332 Brockley Road), December 10th, 8pm.

Yes, that's a Monday. But finding dates in the run up to Christmas when people aren't otherwise engaged is tricky. And doing it on a Monday night means that skeptics can try out BC Drinks without fear that they are sacrificing an important evening.

Co-hosting this one will be a newcomer to the BC Family - Brockley Lizzie, who has successfully nagged us in to getting another date sorted and - going-forward - has offered to be our BC Drinks Organiser-in-Chief. Together with Brockley Ben, Jon, Kate and Nick, she looks forward to meeting you all.

The usual rules apply: Come (either on your own or with a group, it doesn't matter), have fun, meet some people (there are some regulars who know each other well by now but there are always lots of new faces). You don't even have to live in Brockley, you can live nearby or simply desire to be here (last time we had a few people who were contemplating a move to the area and wanted people's advice). It goes on until kicking-out time.

You don't have to book or register or anything else. Just turn up. Though if you are thinking about coming, it's always good to hear from you in advance, via this page or on Facebook and Twitter. We normally get anywhere between 50 and 100 people, but who knows what we'll get on a Monday night, before Christmas, in a place as popular as Jam Circus.

See you then!

Great, looking forward to it. Met a lot of people the last night when we were considering buying in Brockley...and we just moved in to our new place on Merritt Rd a couple of weeks ago.

Oooh Alan welcome to Merritt Road! Look forward to meeting you soon.

sorry to break the news to you Alan, but Merritt road is in Ladywell, not Brockley - but take that as a plus!

Looking forward to it!

Nick, will honest food be provided?

Alan said...

Thanks for the clarification anonymous. I had been wondering why the immigration officers had been giving me such a hard time on my walk back from Brockley station.

Brockley Nick said...

@Anon - "honest food"? Tut. Eating is cheating.

To be clear, the only thing the BC team provides is an excuse to go to the pub. And the pleasure of our company.

Bollocks is Merritt Road in Ladywell. It's right next to crofton park station - so Brockley.

^Excellent! So we can all pile round to Al's new gaff once JC have shown us the door!

Crying off - again - just committed myself to a meeting that evening...

Merritt Road is the best road

Headhunter said...

Excellent, might try to get to this one... On the subject of Merritt Rd, I've always considered it as Crofton Park rather than Ladywell or Brockley...

Crofton Park is a station not an area; it's Brockley.

Anonymous said...

you're incorrect David, crofton park is a distinct area - look at the ward boundaries - each area is distinct, identifiable and completely unambiguous - anything else is speculation.

Brockley Nick said...

To anyone reading this thread, who has not been to one of these things before, I can promise you that the evening's conversation will NOT revolve around the question of whether Crofton Park is an area or a station. Those people who obsess about these things tend to do so from home...

I said...

No boundaries bores? I'm outraged. There better be some twat who's obsessed with how 'honest' my diet is or I'm not coming.

"I can promise you that the evening's conversation will NOT revolve . . ."

so, you intend to moderate people's conversations do you?

Last time we were snorting cocaine off the back of the poor. It's was great!

The anons sat in the corner, complaining that everything was shit.

Brockley Nick said...

No Anon, that does not follow.

I can just imagine nick trying to editorialise a free discussion!

Haha! Yes! It's like Nazi Germany round here isn't it! LOL!

Malpas Simon said...

Think I might be able to make this one! Missed the last couple. Looking forward to meeting you all.

Headhunter said...

Oh come on, nothing like a bit of Ladywell/Brockley/Crofton Park/St Johns etc etc rivalry and inter-area banter... Perhaps this time it'll end up in a bar room brawl?
