Not sure if in October, but I guess chances are pretty high.
Hope the current UK problems get dissolved in a week or so otherwise with such large group we may get preventively arrested :)

Well, bears and gerbils... turns out I will be stuck in KL for an extra day... not back until very late Friday night. Drink one for me, and let's set up another one.

Update: I am writing from Ao Nang Thailand and won't be returning to SIN until the 25th. In other news, it looks as though we will be staying in Singapore a little longer, so I should be able to make it for the next one :-)

That's good news on both counts! Being at the next one AND staying longer! But a shame you can't make this one. Defo next time!

Oops, the group is shrinking...

Looks like we haven't fixed time so far, 7-7:30pm?

7-8 sounds good to me. I'll probably get their around 7:15-7:30 if at all possible. I figured there would be some attrition but still if we get 7 or 8 will a be nice group. Who knows, a few others may well show up. Tentatively, 10 or 11 will still be larger than our one, of which, I think all had a pretty good time!

I haven't heard from Calmday, Saint, durain or intellectualsmuse (I think she's still in India), or revhappy. As the location is already there, who knows, there may just show up.

Guys, I need to do a last minute cry off this time.

Hope you all have a blast and that we can get another one sorted in the next month or so and make this a more regular thing.

Otay, bears and gerbils... I mean boyz and girlz... here is the skinny.

Big Tiger is $7.50 per bottle. (or it was the last time we went) No wine, bring your own in a bag and no one will care. Attached is a map and a street view.

Arrive between 7:00 and 8:00 PM?

Map of hawker center. The yellow highlight is the hawker center.

I like that strip, it is next to what was the Meridian. There is a thorough seafood stall down at the end. On the Orchard side there used to be a beer-auntie kiosk that seems to have gone away in recent years (she was something like $7 for a big un). Hope you have fun....
