Re: [edlug] Feedback on a possible venue...

Up in the bar they have the potential to do reasonable bar food. I expect
initially only pizzas and burgers would be available but if there was a
regular and predictable demand _they may_ be able to provide more choice.

My personal view is that:

 1) They should welcome the business
 2) The venue offers many of the requirements which are so difficult to
 3) The venue has potential for offering further facilities following a
"foot in the door".

I can understand what Alex is saying and as I very rarely attend I feel I
should not push the issue too strongly but I have yet to hear of any ideal
