The farewell get-together for drinkies happened as planned at the Cutter’s Wharf in Belfast on Wednesday 30th. It was great to see everybody again before leaving, and we really appreciated the company!
Thanks to everyone for a great night – here are some photos from the evening, and if anyone has any others that they’d like posted, please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org I’ll add them as I get them. Click (or double-click) on the images to enlarge them.
The hardcore drinkers who remained took part in the pub quiz which kicked off at 10:00pm, and whilst the highlight of the night was just seeing everybody again, I have to mention that we won the quiz by 2 points, after some fine cheating principally by Peter, Lee, and Sarah. Well done. I’m still convinced there’s a biblical character called Tarantulus. And if there isn’t, there should be. The prize was a bottle of Vodka, which Sarah swopped for wine, and which Stuart made disappear.
Naice’s lasting memory will probably be Sarah shouting “los-er” at the guy trying his best to win the £350 “open the box” event (it’s a long story), and she now refers to Sarah as “Mad Sarah”, an accolade she probably richly deserves (in the nicest possible sense).
Thank you all – you’re wonderful and we’ll miss you. If anyone hasn’t sent me their e-mail address, please do so and I’ll keep you up to date. After some discussion, and based on my Cousin Anton’s original idea, it looks like the official opening of Maguire’s Floating Irish Bar and Cultural Centre will be 17th March 2008, so I hope you’ll all be able to come. We can provide the food, drink and accomodation if you can get yourself on a plane.
