> 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.
