    I can't make it, but by all means report back on the Terracotta Chinese - it'd better still be good now I've recommended it!!!

    Re: Meetup/edugeek dinner type thing In Leicester???

    fri 1st is good for me,

    ive been to terracotta a couple of times, it is really good, it about £13 per person, does get really busy on fri/sat so need to book it early.

    flames on granby street is newer but iv not heard many good thins about it.

    eataway on churchgate is supposed to be good, but not been there yet.

    ive heard good things about la tasca, went there once, wasn't that impresseed or that full and ended up in subway next door.

    the travellodge is probably the easiest place to stay in the centre its about £50 per room, (2 people) and if you get bored the casino is just next door.

    Hey ind13 me an webman where just wondering as you live in leicester or nearby would it be a big deal for us to stay at yours cos you seem a nice friendly kind who would warm to a pair of northerners and take pity on them. As we are poorly paid IT bods we can't afford £50 for one night plus train or car costs on top and then the meal? well we would be skint for the rest of the year!
    come on ind13 what do ya say eh?

    Re: Meetup/edugeek dinner type thing In Leicester???

    ok carparks

    http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=l&hl...,0.028839&om=1

    But be aware that b is no longer there (currently a building site for new part of the local shopping centre)

    Also beware near restaurant there is lots of roadworks so to be honest best bet for those in cars park at Saint Nicholas Circle carpark and walk through city centre to the place (http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=d&hl...7,0.01442&om=1)


    For those of you in earlier who want a pre-meal drink then nearby a very good pub called Shakesspeares Head (http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=d&hl...1&ie=UTF8&om=1) well would say that run by friend of the family...

    But is good pub and not over run with students as pubs in Leicester can be...

    1st is good for me too ... Unfortunely I can't offer slepping space that weekend as the workmen will still be about putting our new kitchen in.

    I can offer to be a duty driver though and pick people up from train stations, bus stops, etc ... I can pick up 4 people so let me know if you need a pickup.

    I've just realised that this is the long August Bank Holiday weekend. Maybe we should make a day/afternoon/evening of it...! :drinkers: artyman:
