********** MEET UP PLANS ***********

Liquid Lunch on Friday and Saturday at Wetherspoon’s Piazza at the NEC.

It’s the one closest to the Rezzed Event.

From 12 till 2pm

 

Evenings

As most people are stopping at the Ibis Budget, the best place in Birmingham for us will be the “John Bright Street” area.

It’s a two minute walk from New Street for anyone commuting in from outside.

Three bars of note…

Island Bar – B1 1LT

Brew Dog Bar – B1 1BL

The Victoria – B1 1BN

 

Friday

Nothing planned, but shall we aim to meet in the Brew Dog Pub sometime around 8?

We’re sure to be floating around one of the pubs on John Bright Street.

 

Saturday

Island Bar – Happy Hour from 5 till 8

Brew Dog Bar – from 9 till 10

The Victoria – 10 till late

 

Hows that with everyone?

**************************************************************

 

**************************************************************

 

Eurogamer event REZZED tickets have gone on sale for their event in March 2014 at the NEC in Birmingham.

There has been some chatter about arranging some official meet ups around the event, so let's get an idea if numbers and we'll make some enquiries!

"EGX Rezzed is an event dedicated to PC, indie and console gaming.

What's everyone's thoughts on the hotels? There's a Premier Inn and an Ibis within 0.75 miles away and if you get the saver rate at the Premier Inn it's on £29 a night right now too. Worth us all piling in there? Or would we be better off being more central to Birmingham, leaving us better positioned for beers?

 

Let's get a joint decision on this and get as many of us as possible into the same place.

I'm in!

After missing out at the last minute (and regretting it bitterly) last year, I've promised to go to Rezzed this year.  Time booked off work, can get ticket now, but as Matt said above, what's the hotel situation?  I don't know Birmingham so I'm cool to go with suggestions, and I'd rather stay in a hotel where everyone else is.  Hotels on-site at the NEC are looking like just under £50 a night (extra for breakfast), but cheaper=better cause more money for booze!  Throw suggestions down for me, and any other softie southerners who are coming up!

As always, Eurogamer in the big smoke was a blast, and I'm well up for seeing people again.  Any nice pubs in the area?

See you all in March!

I'll scope out the area. The NEC is away from the main hub of Birmingham, but I think all we need is a boozer close to a cheap hotel close to the event.

 

I guess most people will be using public transport, so we'll bear that in mind too.

So what are people thoughts:

 

A hotel near the NEC but with shitter pubs.

 

Or the more expensive (hotel cost and daily travel) option of hotel in the city with better pubs?

I think the quality of the pub(s) will be vastly increased by having a bunch of us in them. I'm down for whatever, really

I totally agree with Jayce here.

Cheaper hotel, easier to get back to after drinking.

I'll tolerate a second-rate drinking establishment if I get to see everyone.

Just to let you all know:

Train from the Big Smoke to the Second Biggest Smoke (and back)–booked.

Hotel (Ramada Encore near NEC was cheapest half an hour ago)–booked.

Ticket to Rezzed on Saturday–booked.

I can only stay the one night (Saturday), but hopefully I'll see everyone there!

63 days and counting…

I'm all up in this.  Booked the same hotel as Dan.  Even booked the same train, although it wouldn't let me select the same coach.  I'll be running my first half marathon the week before so I'll be ready to let my hair down by then.  I'm on very much a reduced beer policy at the moment.  Reduced beer but increased Cognac. wink

 

 If everyone stays elsewhere then we can always get a cab to wherever.

 

How big can Birmingham be?

Could some kind soul link me to the hotel everyone is rocking in – need to get myself my digs.

I'm going to be hitting the expo Saturday and staying that night – unsure if I'll come up on Friday or Saturday morning… although we do all know that one night boozing with the best people in the world i never enough

We're staying in the Ramada by the NEC.

 

As we're going up Saturday morning, it seemed silly to head right into Birmingham to then go back to the NEC, then back into Birmingham in the evening.

 

If I were staying for two days then I may have opted to stay in Birmingham and travel out to the NEC, but the priority was cheap digs, cheap travel, ticket for the show on Saturday.  This was accomplished and we'll travel to wherever a meet up is being held.
