A meeting of like minds

A mini blogger meet up occured last Thursday evening. Bloggers Tamsin, Lee and myself met up with the Uber Geek himself, Miles Reidy. Miles was over in the UK from the US on business and contacted us all to see if we wanted to meet up. As Tamsin knows London a bit better than me she suggested a Greek restuarant near Charlotte Street. Don't ask me what its called, I couldn't tell you?? I'd never been for a Greek meal before in the UK, apart from our local kebab shop of course, but I was told, that doesn't count!
We all had a great evening talking all things wargaming. The grub was very nice indeed, don't know why but I seemed to pick all the hardest things to pronounce from the menu, and made a right tit of myself trying to say them. Hopefully we'll do it again one day. And if Miles can sort it, he may even come over in April for Salute and a game at Reject HQ!!!
Thanks for a great evening everyone and thanks for picking up the tab Miles!!!!

  6. What a coincidence I was in London this week myself, but with school so had no time for anything gaming related whatsoever! Anyway looks like you had a great time, good on you!

  15. Sounds great fun though it was all Greek to Ray I'll bet? Having lived in the Greek district here in NYC for many years I can tell you real Greek food is fantastic.

  22. Hope you didn't try the Greek wine, Ray - I remember there is one with a name like Domestos and that's exactly what it tastes like too !
