Hear Ye: Rezzed And London Drinks This Weekend

The infinite flanks of RPS are bringing a unique brand of revelry to Britain’s major cities this weekend. One day, RPS Social Clubs shall sprout up in every town, village and hamlet, but for now we’re limiting our good times to Birmingham and London. The former is host to Rezzed, where Graham and I will be seeking the popular vote by shaking hands with babies and kissing local dignitaries on the jowl. If you are visiting on the Saturday, or happen to be in the vicinity of Birmingham, do join us for drinks. As for London, it’s the monthly meet-up at The Blue Posts. More details on both below.

At last year’s Rezzed, everybody gathered in the Wetherspoons at the NEC after-hours. This is clearly unacceptable. With that in mind, we’ll be leading a party into the city centre. Meet in the on-site Wetherspoons between 6-7 on Saturday and we’ll gather together and head to New Street. From there, we’ll take a short walk to Cherry Reds, which is on a strip with assorted other bars. Merriment shall be made.

Oh, and if you’re in Birmingham on Friday, I’ll be arriving in Birmingham around 6.30 so let me know which pub you’re in, eh?

If you can’t make it to Rezzed but do happen to be in London, The Blue Posts is the place to be. People generally arrive around 7 but if you pop into the appropriate thread you may be able to find other early birds should you so desire.

Once again, wherever you are in the world, do email me if you fancy your own get-together featuring in next month’s social listing. Our infinite flanks are prepared for global domination.

    Damn shame I can’t make Rezzed this year, me and the misses had a blast last year, especially the part where we, Adam and a few others got kicked out of wetherspoons after closing and a night of drunken banter. Hopefully next year!

  2. lowprices says:

    Oooh, I’m actually coming to Rezzed this year. Maybe I can convince my friends to stick around for an hour or two for drinks.

  3. SpinalJack says:

    I’m exhibiting at Rezzed, dunno if I’ll have the energy to go very far on Saturday night

    Now now, there’s nothing wrong with Wetherspoons. Well. It depends on the Wetherspoon in question. Some are okay, and there’s even one that’s quite nice.

    • Fitzmogwai says:

      You sound like a fine chap, DrScuttles, but equally, there’s something very wrong with your head.

      • DrScuttles says:

        It’s quite possibly the Stockholm Syndrome talking.

        • Fitzmogwai says:

          We can help. We’ll start by moving you to a Walkabout or O’Neills, then an All Bar One, and finally perhaps an actual pub if you feel ready.

  5. Fitzmogwai says:

    If you’re visiting Rezzed, go and say hello to the Hypersloth boys who are exhibiting their very fine game Dream.

    That was a public service announcement.

    Ah, as a birmingham local, I’d be thrilled to attend! And see whats happening friday evening, too!

    EDIT: The Soloman Cutler is a large, nice place just at the bottom of broad street (just opposite the ICC and Symphony Hall) and thus very central, near New Street. Could be a nice place to meet and proceed to brindley place to a few civilised establishments like Pitcher & Piano, and maybe for a bite to eat there or at the mailbox! (There is a great tapas place, a Wagamamas, and a selection of other good restaurants)
