The ones who go to the 1:30 are likely to be lightly sozzled by 7:30. In 
fact, if I turn up for 1:30 I'll probably want to go home by 8:00. :-) And I 
(as many will tell you) do not shy away from beer easily - I'm a heavy 
drinker, but even I think this might be... tricky...

If all parties were willing, we could just hold the whole thing 
mid-afternoon and let it go on until it dies....

Satan can get a taxi, surely? That's my plan at any rate...

Me too. I'm travelling on wonderful Virgin trains, so have no idea what time 
I'll turn up. I'll guess 2-3pm.

Even though it's not too sunny at the moment, the BBC has on a 4-day 
forecast that indeed, it should be sunny in Cardiff on Saturday. However, 
we're coders. We're supposed to hate the sun. I want to drink in a basement 
without windows and where the ambient temperature is 4C. It'll remind me of 
a machine room. :-)

Which other pub were you thinking of? Can I suggest either somewhere near 
the station or somewhere near Dempsey's to make it easy for people to find 
the early-bird crowd?
