      hi folks,

      just wondered when we were going to sort out the next Shindig and where it was going to be…

      I’d be in favour of Toner’s again myself. As Aphra pointed out, the fewer tables and more open space encourage you to mingle, etc. whereas that was difficult to do in Mahaffey’s

      So in the interests of kick-starting discussion, how about Friday of the 21st or 28th May?

      There is an IGDA event on may 5th and we’ll probably all end up in the pub afterwards anyway, but there may be some who’d prefer the Shindig-type format…

      I should be fine, finished college already so I’ll be free, and I’m sure a few of the demonWare lads will also be there.

      21st has my vote,
      as does Toners.

      Well, I’ve never been to a shindig before (a gd.ie one I mean, obviously I’ve been to other shindigs, I am a student after all) and am looking forward to it mightily. One thing, where abouts is ‘Toners’, I know Mahaffeys well as I’m in Trinity, anywhere near it?

      go to top of grafton st (so that stephens green entrance is on your right),
      hang a left along north stephens green,
      keep going straight it becomes merrion row
      keep going straight it becomes lower baggot street.
      Toners is on the right at start(ish) of baggot st.

      its just under 10 mins walk from top of grafton st.

      Aphra had a map up on the news section a while back for the last shindig. She also included a paragraph on how to find your way to the bar, I can’t find it now though. Maybe she or someone else still has it saved…

      Hi all,

      I guess I should say I’ll be able to make that May shindig and can reserve some tables in advance.

      If you are looking for previous directions to shingigs you can go to the resources section on the top navigation bar, click on calendar and use the search facility.

      Or I can do it for you! Here is a cut and paste re Toners…

      Location: From Stephen’s Green North walk past the Shelbourne Hotel and towards Merrion Row/Baggot Street. Keep walking straight with Upper Merrion Street on your left and Ely Place on your right. Toners is a wine & black pub and will be on your right on a corner. If you reach Pembroke Street on your right you have passed it and gone too far.

      The shindig will be downstairs. To get there you can walk through the pub to the back where there is a stairs or walk around the side outside where there is another door. I will put up signs so you know where you are going..

      Still unsure? The address is 139 Baggot Street Lower.

      check your route
      here

      Aphra.

      :D I know friday night has proved a popular choice for the majority…

      but I have yet to make it to a shidig because it is on a friday..

      maybe june or july can be on a different day?

      I’d love to meet some of you guys :D

      Well how about the idea of a shindig bbq then at some point over the summer, maybe the June or July one? It’ll make it extra worthwhile for people travelling, or we could have it outside Dublin?

      21st still looks good for me.

      ok everyone, tables are booked for downstairs in Toners.

      A few of us will be there early, around 7pm, and I’ll stick up a few posters for people who don’t know what we look like. Feel free to drop by and say hello – the more the merrier…

      for those who are arriving later – we will try to be in a soberish state!!

      Maybe we could get a preview tomorrow night?? I heard GreenBean is putting together a short dance routine, just a few steps to go along with the song so I just want to make sure everyone is moving in the same direction. One of these days Greenbean and Dancin’ Dave are gonna have to have a dance-off, the last time the titans clashed was that fateful Christmas shindig…

      thanks to all who came out on Friday night. There was a great turnout and we had the entire downstairs to ourselves so there was no problem finding us!

      I know I have to send a bit of info to some people so drop me an e-mail or PM and I will send that on..

      Aphra.

      PS I still don’t have much of a voice after the night..
