Some places let you bring your own alcoholic drinks, but make a charge for the removal of the cork - hence 'corkage'.

What if you take your own corkscrew? Or bring a screw top?

Derail, or even bring your own food and plates and stuff...

Meetups are good, the 2 London ones I have attended were fun..
Correction to Mazille's post I think I have been in Austria 3 times and he is never there, leading me to doubt his actual presence in that country...

Station Hotel Dudley? Then can do drinks in evening, crash over, and canal through the mines in the morning as rather fun? More importantly it's dirt cheap, and featured on a famous episode of Most Haunted. And I may well be party to the Haunted rooms, two of which sleep three and the other a twin as I recall. :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNCsyUYzj2k I wonder if Phil would join us?

:D
