With less than three months until the 1 year anniversary of Birmingham.IO, I figured I should start thinking about how we’re going to celebrate it.
Personally I’m thinking a nice low-stress social at a pub on the Sunday before the anniversary (31st May) would be just the ticket. It would be open to all current (and future) members of the community, and to keep things simple, people would buy their own drinks.
(Although if we can get a sponsor for the event, maybe some money can be put behind the bar, or food provided, or something - we’ll see if anyone interested in sponsoring it first).
Anyway, getting to the point of the topic, I’m looking for suggestions of venue. I’ve already had a suggestion of The Fiddle and Bone (who I contacted, and want either £75 for the room, or a minimum catering order of £50), and thanks to Open Code, I’ve got a friendly relationship with The Woodman (who have an upstairs area which I think they’d be willing to let us use for free).
But I’m looking for more suggestions - where you you like to celebrate the anniversary, and why?
