Life isn't about avoiding the bruises. It's about collecting the scars to prove we showed up for it!

For maximum diversity, let's get anneteoh, leona123 and montecarlo to come along too. That will guarantee a lively evening!

Which explains why she holds SG in such high regard.

I just walked past one of these Deli cold storage on Cuscaden Road and it ticks all the boxes, central location, easy parking, cheap beer ( I assume) and sarnies , no loud music, outdoor seating.

OK not the most dynamic of setting but maybe you lot will make up for it?

Orchard T around the corner should the conversation get a bit dull.

There used to be a 'hawker strip' down the north-west side of what was the Meridien hotel on Orchard Road. Right at the end was a good seafood stall. Then you'd have the beer-auntie serving up big bottles at c. $6 a pop.

I know it is not the 'real deal' a la East Coast, but it is central, the food is good, no scamming on px's and the drinks not $$$. If the strip is still there of course...

Gosh you guys sure take your beers seriously! Anywhere is fine with me, but having lived here longer than even SMS I feel obliged to throw in at least one suggestion so here goes:

There's an open air pub in Bishan Park where we can sit surrounded by greenery with a fair amount of privacy, and a quiet environment where we can hear each other. Can't recall prices of drinks but I think they are reasonable. Mainly it has a lovely ambiance.

Or we can go local and sit in a coffeeshop with one leg on a stool and one finger in our noses ;)
