Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

After meeting Fruity, I've developed a taste for this meet-up lark! Wear the Fox Hat will be around Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings so is anyone else willing to make up a crowd? (I know 2's company but we might fight, or bore the pants off each other, - hmm probably should have put that another way....)

Anyway, anyone brave or foolish enough? rolling eyes

Depending on the time/date I'd be up for a visit. I worked in Nottingham for 7 years and actually miss it now Shocked

Usually the only thing I'm there for now is Ikea (great hot dogs NehNeh )

Wear The Fox Hat, that's okay, I wasn't suggesting meeting there.

I used to frequent the Clifton/West Bridgeford areas, although sometimes ventured north into Arnold/Gedling.....I know most of the pubs - they were my loo stops Wink

masopa, You're being very vague, are you having second thoughts? Are you available on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday evening? And if so, what dates?

Elizabeth B, I refuse to go near Ikea too. Can you do weekday evenings?

Dan, Are you a possible, or just nosey?

Sorry maggi - not having second thoughts, just not sure what my plans are when we come down. Will be down on Wednesday evening, but won't be able to make an evening - no car and will be coming in from Grantham. Plus haven't seen my parents for a few months! Are Sundays out? Sorry for being crap!

Right. I give up. I live in Nottm all the time, and so can (usually) do any evening or weekend daytime. (I mean, I don't do anything on a particular day, not that I never do anything!). So, if you lot want to come, it would be logical if you came up with a date when you can make it. Sorry to sound stroppy but have you seen how long the Southerns thread is. 3 months! Can't plan that far ahead - life's too short and you never know what's going to happen!

Deb & I live in Lambley, just east of Nottm.

We'd be keen to meet up & can do Wed 28th. I'll buy the first round.

I know that we haven't met before but Peter B & Beanie can confirm that we're not mad axe murderers. Mind you, I'm a scouser by birth so you'd better make sure you're car's securely locked. Little Angel

Look forward to hearing from you.

Oh no. We can't have two scousers meeting in the same pub.....unless you promise to leave my car alone, and I'll promise not to touch yours.

Oh, yes, next Wednesday should be fine!

Any suggestions for meeting place? I'm coming in from the north, but know the city pretty well, so anywhere should do.

OK, it needs to be somewhere I can find easily, and park nearby. I'll be driving from Burton-in-Hell, which is just down the A38 from Derby.

So, spyderjon & Deb aren't mad axe murderers, Peter B & Beanie didn't kill them when they met, so that leaves Elizabeth B, maggi, and me. And I don't think it's either of the two ladies... Twisted Evil

Wear The Fox Hat, you might just be mistaken Twisted Evil

If you're coming from Burton, me from the north and spyderjon from Lambley (do I remember that maggi is Arnold way?).....it looks like the city centre (or Trowell services Wink ) or someone travelling out of their way.

Right then, we're ON! Next Wednesday, 28th. Peter B can vouch for spyderjon, Ski Bunny for WTFH. Fruity is still alive and can vouch for me. Elizabeth is a Moderator, so she must be sane? Anyone else want to come? Must have references Laughing

Fox will be coming down (up? sideways?) on the A52 (presumably), Elizabeth, down the M1. I am rubbish with directions/where things are in relation to anywhere else but I'll ask around re likely pubs. Spyderjon, have you any ideas? Or Elizabeth? You said you knew Nottm quite well. City would be great for me as I could catch a bus and drink all night but free parking is impossible and the car parks are expensive. I think out of town with a car park would be better for everyone else.

But we've got a date, and a (small) crowd, so we're doing great so far snowHead

maggi, my problem is that all the places I know are on the "wrong" side of town for me (and WTFH). I've always wanted to go to the crusader.....surely the most famous traffic news pub around. The Nottingham Knight (or whatever it's called now?) and the one down the road from there (Big Apple???) are both nice, but again, the wrong side of the city.

There's a brewsters just off Jn 26 in Nuthall....can't remember what it's called...but always looks okay.

Elizabeth B, Wear The Fox Hat, If you both come off the M1 at J26 (A610) the Brewsters is not far. Just looked it up in the phone book. It's called the Old Moor Lodge and its on Mornington Crescent, see www.streetmap.co.uk for directions. Can't vouch for the food, music, decor etc as I've never been, but location is great, thanks Elizabeth.

What time are you thinking of arriving?

Can't stay too late as it is a school night.
So, it's A610, at the roundabout take the 5th exit on the A6002 Woodhouse Way, then Mornington Cres is on the left.
