  • Mine is tomorrow, free booze and no longer working there so dont have to worry about going in Friday I will be making the most of that
  • In the lobby of our office next Friday, curled up sandwiches and left over cheap wine. I'm not going.
  • Dickens inn - St Katherine's dock this Saturday.

    We are based in Dartford but fancied a change so we are heading into town this time.
  • This Saturday for free meal at restaurant called jimmys kitchen in Wembley.

    1st ever work Christmas do/party. Strangely looking forward to it though in situations like this I have the social capabilities of a worm.

  • Tomorrow (far too early really) a three course meal at a local golf club who always put up a very nice spread
  • Saturday night in The Yacht in Greenwich....Me and a colleague aren't in peoples good books as we will be in Nottingham.
  • My works party starts at 5pm next Friday 12th December and will hopefully carry on for about 30 years.......
  • 19th at Hippodrome Casino, for once I'm actually going to go
  • My boss and team are based in America. The party is in Dallas, Texas.

    I turned down the chance to go as two weeks later I'll e out in Las Vegas with work anyway and will more than make up for it.

  • I'm former RN, now retired from active service, but still working for the Service in a training capacity in a large shore training establishment.

    We don't do office "parties" as such. Rather, there are a series of informal 'call rounds' to various departments for (what is called) Wobbly Coffee. It starts off as coffee with a shot of rum, brandy or whisky in it, but pretty soon the coffee gets ignored and we just finish off the bottles.

    There is a formal Christmas bop in the Warrant Officers and Senior Rates Mess and that's ok, but the dinner time session the day before leave commences is always a better bash. Hic.

    Not a lot of work gets done in the last week before leave commences.

  • Good luck with the pub, looks nice.

  • Bar in the city but am going to see Status Quo on the same night.
  • City Social for dinner on the 19th (they owe us a load of money so we are getting some back via running up a huge bill) then probably somewhere in the city after.
  • Holborn bars on the 19th. Last year I had only been in the company 3 days, so I should enjoy it more this year
  • Park Lane Hotel next Friday. First Christmas party in years so looking forward to it even though I'll be leaving early to get the train home. Also got two team Christmas lunches to look forward to and all free!

  • The Grosvenor on Park Lane next week.

    Black tie do with slap up meal and free booze.
  • The Silver Sturgeon on the Thames on Friday 19th.
  • My first was on Monday, lunch in a nice place in Mayfair, my second was today in a restaurant full of rascals in Fulham. My actual work one is tomorrow back in Mayfair then I have others on the 10th, 11th, 12th, 15th, 17th and 18th. I can't wait till the 19th when it is all over tbh.

    It's a hard life ;-)

    There's only one Xmas party that I know of, and that'll be the Blackburn away coach journey on the 20th

    Male gigolo?
  • I will be going to a Christmas Breakfast Friday morning. In the past these have been quite raucous events, but after about 20 years we calmed down... a bit.

    I expect to be slightly the worse for wear at about 9:30am and it'll be down hill all the way from there. Supposed to be going for a drink and seeing a band in the evening - will it happen???
  • Ours is this Friday at The Somers Town Coffee House up between Euston & King's X. We've paid a sliding scale (us managers chipping in most) to fund the bar, bit of a buffet and the boss has agreed to dust off his DJ skills for a few hours. No groans there, he's part of a group of DJs known as The Boom Brothers and pretty good at it. Bar open til 2am...I suspect we'll have to refinance it a few times for the "youngsters"!!

    Also have a group of us (6 lads) who still do our fellas Xmas club fund. Since we started work in 85/86, we put £10 a month away and go out and get bladdered. The last few years it has been finding gigs, rather than a night in numerous unsavoury bars...one mentioned on thread already...this year it's Madness at The O2 on the 20th.
  • Ape & Bird 19th, schwerving it as arranged a Leo with some old pals.
  • Bowling in Westfield Stratford tomorrow at some place that has a nice restaurant for after too then me and a few of the other younger ones going out for a drink after.
