Marc’s 29th – November 2010

with 3 comments

When a friend comes to London for his birthday, it’s rude not to celebrate. An excellent attendance was made by all present, a very pr0 group if ever I saw one. KRT was chosen, we all said we were busy and Marc got lonely and turned up at Danny’s, who promptly told him he had to work but could meet later. Later they met and ended up on the 29th floor (convenient), where we all waited for the man himself to party.

Marc,  Danny, Brad,  Chris, Zero, Siolo, Cogito, Neb, Patch, Speed, Gorbotchov, Snappel, Yaz, Bukowski, Sgt Marshall, Claire Elise, Za Gringo, Rupert Griffiths and maybe one or two others I forgot made this a night to remember.

Props to Brad, Dan and Zero for putting in the legwork to make this happen.
