So who has an idea where to meet up for drinks & eats on the FRIDAY night?

Is there a swanky studio nearby that wants to have us as their guests?

Anyone know the area?

Hi jules, only a student but i live nearby in north london

There's '2002 studios' nearby...but dont think any of them are on this board, and my mum wouldnt be up for 20 over 20s in my loft studio :P Line up looks quite good this year though, getting better and better every year..although i will make it to NAMM when i have enough money!

No sweat - I felt bad NOT to talking to you, I was wrapping up a biz conversation that I would have been rude / a bad idea to break from..

Next time

I think there were about 14 of us for dinner in the end

We would have been more with Alan & Justin Hyatt from PMI, and Malcolm Toft and the guy that used to own Trident studios - but the Trident guys dont like Indian food... so sadly the 4 of them had to bail on us also lots more came to the pub but didnt stay for eats...
