  1. UK Patriots 2018 Superbowl Party

    (IP: Posted January 6, 2016 (edited) This years Superbowl Party will once again be hosted by the Marylebone Sports Bar & Grill on Sunday 4th February 2018. At this point in time, we have exclusive use of the Scarlett Bar, providing we have a minimum of 30 people. With some slight rearranging of the seating we can get a maximum of 36 people in this area. Therefore places will be on a first come basis (receipt of payment being the determining factor) Other factors are basically the same as last year, so the cost is an all inclusive £30 per person, which covers admission to the SB & G (remember they have a £10 per person door charge on superbowl night). Food as per the set menu below and service charge (again SB & G usually add 12.5% to all food bills, all the time) Food is: Cheese Nachos with dips on the side Chicken Wings, with Carrot & Celery sticks and dips Plain Burger in a Ciabatta Bun. Mixed bowls of French Fries & Chunky Chips BBQ Baby Back Ribs (usually enough for a couple each) Payment in full will need to be made to me by Monday 22nd January 2018 Remember, this event will take place whoever is in the Superbowl. If the Pats are there, like last year, then it's a bonus and makes it an even better night. There is a Travelodge literally next door to the venue, but they don't seem to have any really tempting deals on at the minute. There are several other budget hotels within a fairly short distance of the SB & G, or you just get the first train out of London on the Monday morning. Please indicate your interest here and also PM me a current email address and I'll send the bank details to make payments (same as last year for any returning people) List of Attendees (Confirmed & paid) Probable still to confirm & pay Swindon Patriot +1 WelshLancsPat Grecian Patriot Rossitron Deadly36 Patriotsjay JVTUK Tamish Swiss Patriot Carl03 Wycombe Patriots Darius87 Jaco mablc001 + 3 rob@foxboro + 1 dolagirl80 + 1 Buddfox Simon89 + 1 Glasgowpat + 1 Nedpears WilforkPlanet + 1 Old Glory Matt + 2 Warren + 1 Waspie

    Just a reminder that the payment deadline is today and we are going to be over subscribed again this year.

    Hi Matt, currently still some space available, 4 spaces if all the probable confirm their places and pay up. I've sent you a PM
  4. Tampa Bay or Denver?

    I heard you and Jamie liked to do a bit of big game fishing off the coast of Florida
  5. Gameday Questions

    I would agree with most of what Neil has said above, except, being of an overly cautious nature, I would allow a little more time to get to Gillette from downtown Boston, especially if weather looks like it may have any effect on your journey. It may seem that you are getting to the stadium awfully early, but you will find plenty to do, eat & drink (be very careful with alcohol if driving). Wrap up warm and be prepared to do some more tailgating after the game as the other option is to basically sit in traffic and crawl back to Boston. make the most of it and soak up the atmosphere of Sunday night football.
  6. Travel to Boston

    Only delay I've ever had at Logan is waiting for Jamie Macrae to arrive on the flight from Manchester via Chicago (cheapskate, going the long way round)
  7. I can highly recommend these Dublin trips. Had a great weekend at the Notre Dame v Navy game 2 years ago. Sorry that we couldn't make this one.
  8. Went to the Emerald Isle Classic last year (Notre Dame @ Navy) and had a blast of a weekend. The Guinness in Dublin sure tastes different. Hopefully SWMBO will be up for another trip across the Irish Sea.
  9. Try ticketmaster first on the day they release the tickets. Make sure you have a VISA credit card to pay for them. (They will not accept a Mastercard one)
  10. UKPatriots Tailgate Party (@GBTP, Green Man Hotel, Wembley)

    Hanging THAT calendar up would bring bad luck in my house whatever time of year I hung it up! second that ade my better half would kill me, my son said to me at the party "shall we get mammy a calender?" "i doubt she would want one" was my reply lol come on boys, sounds like your diplomacy and powers of persuassion are slipping here. Missed opportunity with your son Dwayne, he could have taken a nice pressie back for his mum, after all, it was his idea.

    body of baywatch face of crimewatch Ever the diplomat Warren, still at least it shows you evaluated the whole package

    I hope you're not supersticious Tommo, but hanging a calendar up early brings bad luck. Might be an idea to save it for January. Now, keeping them up at the end of the year, well that's fine, trouble is, I seem to be running out of wall space

    Matt, it was good to meet you on Sunday, I hope you were waving your towel with pride wherever you were in the stadium.
  14. UKPatriots Pre-Game Party FAQs

    She thought she was going to get away with it and bluff her way through. Unfortunately for her, she'd come up against "honkforgronk", there's no way that flag was going anywhere it wasn't meant to. Nice job Judy,
  15. Massive Thank You

    It was very cold there on Saturday morning, with a biting wind, that fair whistled through the park
  16. Massive Thank You

    Well that was a blast. What a great weekend with a great bunch of people. Like all the others here, special thanks to Ade & James, for the tickets & party arrangements, that spreadsheet must give you guys nightmares. Sadly, I couldn't get to the Wembley tour or Pub Crawl, but I heard they were both fantastic events, so well done Damo, Ted & Dave45. Great work with the flags & sails Specialbrew, and James for the T-shirts (pissed off a couple of Rams fans on the tube on Saturday night) Flag football was fun, and surely someone has got a picture of the streaker, can't believe we all missed it. Great idea of yours with the towels Damo, glad I was able to help you out with that one. Special thanks to my late night drinking partners, Gareth, Steve and Markus, it's been a long time since I was asked to leave a bar at 1am, because they needed to close up. Also a blatant plug, watch out for a post reference a meet up at the Sports Bar & Grill at Marylebone for the Jesters game on 22nd/23rd November. Would love to get as many UK pats fans there for so Beer, Food & a Jets arse-kicking.
  17. After the pre-game party.....

    you're starting to sound like Dave45
  18. After the pre-game party.....

    Bakerloo line is closed on Saturday between Elephant & Castle to Paddington. You would need to go Piccadilly line to Green Park, then Jubilee Line to Wembley Park
  19. Boston Logan To London Heathrow

    Welcome to London both of you. I bet Warren's been hoping someone would say that for years

    I have also been made aware today of 4 Tickets in the UK Patriots block that are available (Block 140, Row 33, 4 seats together) If anyone is still looking to go to the game and hasn't yet got tickets these are £100 each, and there will be no additional booking fees or charges. Also you'll be sitting with the best Patriots fans in the country. PM me for more info if GENUINELY interested, obviously a short timeframe to organise.
  22. Patriots At Wembley 2012

    Thanks! $40 for a t-shirt is outrageous but I might have to get a mini-helmet. If you're hiring a car whilst you're here, wait till you see the gas prices

    I thought they ran that race in the Summer on a Saturday
