A suggesting made to me recently was Pizza Express for a meal as part of the evening. Ok, it may not be typically local, but at least we know what to expect and should be fine to match most budgets

Good Luck in Gib, for a dance floor id look at either Sala on the Sunborn and its NightClub or the NightClub just outside of Casemates,

As for drink there are plenty of bars and plenty of choice from John Smiths to Estrella Damm and everything in between.

The Pizza Express isnt bad, and there is also a Wagamama's as well in Ocean Village, and plenty more:

Bars, Restaurants, Casino - Ocean Village

Ocean Village btw is a 5minute walk from the HIX

Nothing wrong with a couple of breasts with my French fries.....

Pizza express is indeed not exciting but at least they should be able to handle a large party. Should be. Theoretically.

I also think there should be 2 options; those who want a sit down meal and those who want to do a bar crawl with grab-and-go bar snacks (Brunoís happy hour seems a good starting point for this, particularly with their íTGI Fridayí style option bar food).

And a meeting point thereafter where those who wish to grab drinks can join the bar crawlers & continue the party (with a second option for after dinner drinks for those that prefer a quieter Saturday night).

I think C-W-S needs to speak to his contacts at BA and get them to reinstate the cancelled flight. They are going to need the seats

I see you haven't taken the plunge yet. Is there anything we can do to give you a little push. If 5 of us hold down KARFA there is a possibility of extracting a moth eaten old fiver from his wallet to buy drinks with

are you suggesting KARFA is tighter than the nuts on the forth bridge?

With the numbers fast approaching 50 I wonder at what point the word 'mini' is offically removed and it is classified a proper Do!
