it is a bit early to start the DDs thread, but it is only fair to publicise the date as early as possible so that there are NO excuses for certain people to say they know nothing about it
(Although it should be in their diaries already!)
The Dirty Dicks
in May has become the traditional "Pre Le Mans Drinks" where all manner of people crawl out of the woodwork to witness various people practising for Le Mans. For members of RWR, rules apply so remember (all) those tour cards eh
For members of the fairer sex this is a brilliant opportunity to have some fun with the "standing-on-one-leg" rule
For those that are tempted to join us for the first time, pre Le Mans Drinks is even more welcoming than the usual last Thursday of the month, although it has been known to be slightly messier than normal.
We are generally found either hanging out at the front of the bar on Bishopsgate, smoking in the Alleyway down the side or in the upstairs bar - if you look for a mötley crüe of fools that seem to be most unlikely to know each other, let alone be buying each other drinks - that is probably us. The other way to find us it to look for a large number of warm Guinness’s, trays of shots and bottles of Smirnoff Ice in the vicinity.
I am (as usual) contractually obliged to say that "We are the friendliest and most welcoming bunch you would ever wish to meet" (or avoid at all costs). One of these statements is probably true.
As well as the lasting friends etc bit shamelessly ripped off from every month, May also sees circles of death formed in readiness for the main drinking event in June, there is a rumour that there is also a race that weekend but that is (as yet) unwitnessed.
Lightweights need to be able to spot and avoid the hardened drinkers; which is not always the obvious/usual culprits at this event
