I hope this is in the right category... Just wondered if here are some Amiga User around from the Manchester area? If so, is any one up for a nice beer in a pub? We can then have our own "Amiga round table"...

Great, looks like as when there are some people around from this area! What do you think all, should we organised a meetup? In the end of the day, why should always the south have meetups ^^?

In Manchester is actually a pub, which has lot's of old video game tablets and Amigas, Ataris, and sinclairs as decoration... Maybe that would be a good idea?

Joking aside do you have any pictures of this place? I would love to see how this is setup.

Cheers

PS The other pubs are for chavs right?

Ah you edited your post with a link

The Lass O' Gowrie is indeed quite a nice pub, used to go there a lot when I worked near by.

However it doesn't usually have lots of retro machines! That seems to just be a once-a-month club. (Although it does look very cool!)

Interesting, I'm in Chester and wouldn't mind the journey - also the lass was advertising at r3play, so they obviously still do it.

So next retro gaming event will be the 30th, but sadly I will be abroad in this week. Maybe some from you would be up and going there?
