I just checked the Sumac's website, and it doesn't seem like it's open on saturday afternoon. Also, even if they were I don't believe they're allowed to sell alcohol until the evening.
If Dotty's is still open maybe we should meet there instead.
Or we could all just wander around Nottingham hanging zines out to likely looking people.

I'm getting the train, but I know where I am in Notts. I'd be more than happy to herd a few peopel toward The Sumac/Dotty's if I'm needed?
(I've not actually beenin Dotty's. but the Sumac has vegan beer on tap.. actually, is the Sumac open in the afternoon? I just checked, yes, yes it is)

Okay, I guess if a few / lots of people are getting trains, it would be wise for all of these people to arrive at the same station and meet there first (since we all seem to be 'ultra-shy nerds'). How many people are getting trains and to which station would be most convenient..?

National Express come into Broadmarsh, which is on the south side of town near the train station. If you're into damp dark bus stations as a way to welcome you to a city, you'll love it.

Best bet from there to Sumac is a tram from Station Street or Lace Market (there's signs from the bus station) towards Phoenix Park or Hucknall, getting off at Beaconsfield Street and turning right along Gladstone Street.

The main coach station in Nottingham is Broadmarsh, which is right on the other side of town for the Sumac, there's also the Victoria one, which is more convenient - where are you coming from?

ive just realised it might be better to book by coach instead.....does anyone know if the coach station is in the town centre?? (im thinking the chances are it is.....)
