Camp Smalltalk updates and dinner

Off the top, just a couple of updates: first of all, thank you to ESUG for agreeing to sponsor the tea, milk, biscuits, etc. throughout the weekend; secondly, we've had a couple of cancellations, so there are again a few spots free. Sign up on our event page.

Cincom has finalized Saturday dinner plans for us at the ABSOLUT Icebar and belowzero restaurant + lounge in the West End.

 

From the website:

ABSOLUT ICEBAR LONDON is the UK's only permanent bar made of ice and is kept at minus 5 degrees all year round. Everything inside is made out of crystal clear ice harvested especially from the frozen Torne River in Jukkasjarvi, Northern Sweden.

Even the drink glasses are made of ice! When not in the Icebar, we'll be enjoying food, drinks, and good conversation in the Reindeer Lounge, complete with its own private bar.
