I just called the Owl & Thistle and have been told that it'll be first come first serve to get in. On the Friday night the U2 tribute band Zoo Station will be performing and I understand they put on a good show. The band takes the stage at 9pm. I was told if we're there by 7pm, we shouldn't have a problem getting in.
Here is a link for the pub with the address - it looks like a fun place! (It's Irish and serves Guinness which tops my check lists for a Friday night!)
I haven't met many of you in person before, so please come
