Midweek and late Nov / early Dec likely to be quieter than weekend (esp. Friday) nearer to Christmas what with all the office parties etc.

What about "The Doric" then, opposite the back door of the Waverley on Market Street ?

A Friday evening?

25th November?

2nd December?

From 8.00ish?

I could make either of these dates, but (I state my interest as a semi-retired person somewhat less thirled than the fully employed to the Mon - Fri cycle) choosing a Friday does inevitably mean more bodies.

However, I recognise that I am probably (possibly?) in a minority, so...

On a second issue, taking Shard's point re. the Doric's upstairs restaurant / downstairs bar, would it be worth settling on two parallel start times for eaters / drinkers and purist drinkers respectively? (These need not be very far apart, early purist drinkers safeguarding seats for eaters subsequently moving downstairs.) Or is this all getting a bit too organised?

I concur with regard to the congestion isue on a Friday night. Those who participated in a similar event last year will remeber a highly entertaining occasion taking place in somewhat cramped conditions. How about Wednesday 30th November or Thursday 1st December?

Won't Embra be full of magisters and local governmentalists looking for fun after a strenuous day of demonstrating against the pension plans of their democratically elected masters?

The Doric, on Wednesday 30th November, looks OK for me.

Post strike drinkies on St. Andrews night - fine! (I've always thought that a semi-continuous winter party running from St. Andrews day to Burn's Night would be A Good Thing) Any thoughts for starting time?

Paul's suggestion of 8-ish seems good to me.
