thinking it might be quite fun to pop along if there is...
any ideas?...there must be someone
Unfortunately I don't know 100% where they went, Planet Hollywood maybe?
1/10 for helpfulness
2/20 - A poor post
i've never been to a bodean's though, so i wouldn't know what to expect.
sounds quite good though.
I'll be your wingman.
let's do it...
Why the hell not? I'll book monday off work in addition
might be tricky getting home unless we find somewhere to crash
by then I'll be living in Reading though, I reckon. It'll finish about 4am. Only leaves an hour for us to kill before getting a redeye back home, right!?
and hopefully by that point we'll be so pumped full of bourbon and bbq that we won't mind the wait.
the food is inconsistent; it is often good, but sometimes it can be a bit disgusting. more likely to be good though, in my experiences.
i went to the superbowl thing last year. so many americans in there.
good value for money and all that?
more americans the better...i hope there's gonna be american girls. american girls are great
i would say go to the soho one - much better than the other branches, for some reason.
i wanna come to this with you and lemonbrickcombo now but my fling with american football was short lived...but i like food and good times.
i'm sure most of the enjoyment will come from the craic of the occassion....
we should have a dis superbowl meat and make the soho bodean's our spot....who fancies it?
Am I allowed a pint?
who knows. I don't.
ok, so...would it be wise to get tickets ahead of this?
i guess it's gonna be taking a big gamble to hope we can just bowl up on the night and get in.
did it sell out last year?
definitely worth booking a table as soon as possible. in fact, i'm pretty sure if you don't book it'll be pretty much impossible to get a table. there were people showing up and being turned away and they looked like they were gonna cry.
so, how does the booking work. do you just get a ticket and then take your spot when you get there?
we wouldn't need to make a group booking or owt?
i think we booked as a table and paid the price per person when the bill came, innit. so yeah, i recks you would need to book a table for a group.
i'm useless with stuff like this. how should we play it
Being a vegetarian, I'm not that fussed about the food, but would be up for watching the game - I missed last years, but usually like to catch it live.
Is macaroni cheese. I've never had it, but somebody behind me once did and it looked ok (not too stodgy or plasticky) but smelled really enticing. So you might not be completely stuck if they say it's eating package tix or nowt.
Oh, lots of friends in here I've not spoken too for a few days so.... HAPPY NEW YEAR lovelies! :) xxx
Anyway, I'm in, just give me 'til tuesday to sort out the logistics.
I'd like to go somewhere like this but I REALLY want to go to Hooters :'(
and i fucking hate McDonlads
the ribs there are delicious.
dont mind me.
SUPERBOWL! The social had something for it a year ago, that was fun.
I would apply to work at the nottingham one BUT you have to wear tan coloured tights as part of the uniform
I'm so pale and I'd look like a freak with just brown legs. No can do!
they were gonna open a hooters in southend but people petitioned against it and it never happened.
fucking southend. Whats good about southend anyway? NOTHING. They should open one in Romford. It'll do well. I may write to them.
I have asked.
me and a few friends go there sometimes on a wednesday if theres football on. 1/2 ribs and drinks arent too expensive. more families eat there then i expected.
Do the girls wear skimpy clothes like I imagine? Are they a bit ropey?
We go to the tower hill one once a week, usually to watch hockey, but their scheduling has been a bit pish lately. Diablo wings and jacobs ladder ribs ftw. Also, I do love burnt ends with bbq sauce. And their special coleslaw and fries. And sam adams beer. Hot chipotle sauce. NEED BODEANS! <3
Let me know how enquiries go, but call it a tentative yes (will need to ensure I can clear my diary for the next morning as I doubt I'll behave myself :D)
it looks like we need to book a table, so i'll book it and then people can get me the money.
so if we have wednesday as the deadline to say if you are definitly interested, and then i'll book it on thursday.
i guess just post below in this thread if you are definitly up for it, etc.....something striking and in caps, preferably.
obviously you need to be quite sure though with there being deposits involved and stuff, so try not to be a maybe..(THAT'S YOU THAT IS MEOWINGTON)
also...when you put your hat in the ring, say if you prefer soho or tower hill. tower hill would probably be better for me because my train goes to fenchurch street...but if the soho one is nicer or whatever i'm completely fine for that, so we'll just leave it to a vote.
(i'll come for drinks somewhere else before though?)
And what is the full price? (Sorry if it say up there ^. Am viewing this on blackberry and have goggly eyes)
Tower hill is best for me but I guess we should consider the majority view, and perhaps more importantly, capacity! The downstairs bit at tower hill is huge, but soho may be bigger (never been to it though). Exciting.
Michael, you will turn up this time, bud? ;D
i'll look like an even bigger dick if i organise this with deposits and everything and i still don't bloody show...
it's 25 spuds deposit...but then it says they take thi off the bill on the night, so i'm not exactly sure how it will work
makes it too complicated if people choose between the locations. plus tower hill recently got refurbished and is pretty nice these days so yeah i reckon it should be there.
but don't know a thing about the sport. It would be like an American watching the FA Cup Final with me not knowing whats going on, wouldn't want to p anyone off there
if you're defo up for this, could you start posting below.
something like....'IM IN'....in the subject header or something, just so i know for exact numbers.
wednesday deadline, etc.
as there's no way I'm staying up to watch it and then going in the next day.
It might mean taking the morning of Monday 7th off work though, and I've really got to get that approved as I'll be on a deadline that week and holiday the following week. The person who I need to convince is off work uintil monday. GAH. I guess I could always just MTFU and go into work on the monday hanging. It wouldn't be the first time. Hmm. Let me consult with Mr Oeuf and come back to you later :)
