Summer 2019 Halfbakery 20th Birthday London Drinks

  [vote for,

Meeting up somewhere in London, on a date near the 10th August.

I propose 16th August - does that work for others?

Birthday Custard Sponge https://www.nigella...hday-custard-sponge
Uses imitation custard powder, and is a bit complex [notexactly, Aug 10 2019]

Daddy's custard birthday cake! http://www.tobyandr...e-recipe-kids-join/
Same as the first one [notexactly, Aug 10 2019]

BIRTHDAY CUSTARD SPONGE GATEAU http://riascollecti...nge-gateau-for.html
Same as the first one. Came with the capital letters [notexactly, Aug 10 2019]

Vanilla custard layer cake, or, "Othello' cake https://gourmandine...custard-layer-cake/
Finally real custard, but only because powder wasn't available. Lots of ingredients and takes two days, so won't be ready in time. Came with the unbalanced quotation marks [notexactly, Aug 10 2019]

Birthday cake croissant by chef Thiago Silva https://www.instagram.com/p/BGRq_ZcEH2A/
I don't know if he's released the recipe, and croissants are tricky to make [notexactly, Aug 10 2019]

An unusual and insanely delicious Birthday cake https://thestonesou...ious-birthday-cake/
This one has (premade) croissants AND real custard in it! And it's simple. Looks like this is the one. [notexactly, Aug 10 2019]


       I was thinking of going to Madagascar for a trip. Could we move the event there?
xenzag, Apr 17 2019

       That would be much more convenient for the Aussie contingent.
RayfordSteele, Apr 17 2019

       It would be the HB way, to choose a time/location which is equally inconvenient for everyone
hippo, Apr 17 2019

       I'm up for it.
DenholmRicshaw, Apr 17 2019

       Could do squire, if I haven't fleed the country.   

       Very generous of you, to get the first round in.
not_morrison_rm, Apr 17 2019

       Madagascar. Hmmm...A destination I've always wanted to visit This would be perfect. (Wake me up when I'm done dreaming).
blissmiss, Apr 17 2019

       If I win the lotto I'll be there.   

       Perhaps the Canadian contingent can club together to charter a dirigible.   

       DIY option: summer 'sled' setup--I have a kayak, and can borrow the neighbours' Malamutes.
Sgt Teacup, Apr 18 2019

       I'm in for lotto/dirigible.
FlyingToaster, Apr 18 2019

       If we build it... the lotto will come...   

       I have no training, but I'm willing to pilot it. I also went to school for aeronautical and mechanical engineering (though appropriately only got halfway through the program), so could help a bit to design it.
notexactly, Apr 18 2019

       This is a great idea but I'm not coming, can't let people know I'm a dog.
calum, Apr 19 2019

       Instead of Madagascar, I now find myself strangely attracted to Panama.
xenzag, Apr 19 2019

       _calum- Wow. You went and told em. I'm so disappointed in you.
blissmiss, Apr 19 2019

       Video conferencing?
not_morrison_rm, Apr 20 2019

       This is only a few weeks away. I should be available - any suggestions for a location?
mitxela, Jul 21 2019

       I joined the halfbakery 10 years ago yesterday, so I have been a member for almost but not quite exactly half of its life. Does that count?
pocmloc, Jul 21 2019

       As [nmrm] said, video-conferencing
pertinax, Jul 22 2019

       Not until it's certain I won't show up unexpectedly.   

       There's an unclaimed lotto winner and an unchecked ticket in my wallet
it could happen...

       //That would be much more convenient for the Aussie contingent.//   

       But then it wouldn’t be a Summer Halfcon
AusCan531, Jul 27 2019

       Previous pubs include:   

       Marquess of Anglesey (Covent Garden)
Windmill Pub (Clapham Common)
The Colonies (near buckingham palace)
OXO Tower bar
Shakespeare's Head (oxford circus)
King's Head Pub (Tooting)
Ye Olde Mitre (Farringdon)
The Nag's Head (knightsbridge)
The Speaker (st james's park)

       and possibly others.
mitxela, Aug 03 2019

       Eliminating those narrows it down a bit, but not lot.
pocmloc, Aug 03 2019

       Today's the day (by my clock, and the server's)! Here are some custard- and croissant-themed birthday cake recipes: [links]
notexactly, Aug 10 2019

       News reports on those suggested areas being evacuated in preparation.
xenzag, Aug 10 2019

       Friday then? I suggest The Speaker or The Colonies.
mitxela, Aug 13 2019

       What? This Friday?! I haven't even found my tie or my spats, never mind the hat.
Sgt Teacup, Aug 13 2019

       Free play on the lotto ticket...   

       " the weather’s crap now "   

       I only spent two weeks in London, so I could be mistaken, but isn't that the default there?
normzone, Aug 16 2019

       That's the great thing about London weather - you can schedule a "summer drink" (as the idea title says) at any time of year
