Hi all,

as we move into April the release of Ubuntu 11.04 the Natty Narwhal 
swims into view. Because this will be a *huge* celebration we have 
arranged a bank holiday on the following day for you, so there is no 
excuse for not partying on a weekday. In the afternoon will be a 
slightly formal "launch" event and photo opportunity for journalists and 
bloggers and the community, at the British Computing Society on 
Southampton Street near Charring Cross, dunno if there will be any nosh, 
but if there is it would be of the diminutive sandwiches and canapés 
variety. There is going to be a registration for this as we are going to 
need names and numbers in advance. Following that we will be moving on 
to somewhere else with less formality and more booze, probably a pub.

This part of the plan is less well defined than the first part so I am 
*seeking* *your* *help*. What we need to do is pick a pub, or other 
venue. One that serves food and has a decent amount of space, one that 
will perhaps let us reserve an area for free, one within walking 
distance of the BCS and within staggering distance of a tube. Power 
sockets and wifi would be a mild bonus, but the evening is more about 
partying than geeking out.

Please respond with venue suggestions and feel free to start planning 
what to do for the rest of your day off, I heard that some kids that 
went to Edinburgh Uni are taking advantage of the Natty bank holiday to 
get hitched in Westminster, but you could do anything you like.
