What? SSAGO Goes to Spoons is a nationwide social event where SSAGO...goes to Spoons! But here's the catch, you don't get to decide what you want to eat or drink...somebody else does! Using the Wetherspoons app and the SSAGO website, you select items for a pre determined SSAGO member who is somewhere across the UK. Then in return you get something back, which somebody else has chosen for you! Share your food and drink on Facebook, have a jolly good time and eat lots of peas!
When? Saturday 7th August 2021, 7pm
Where? A Wetherspoons pub anywhere in the country!
Who? SSAGO members - but who sends you food or drink? Nobody knows!
Cost? However much you'd like to spend on your new friend (we suggest up to £7).
How? Head to your selected Wetherspoons and update your table number on the Secret Santa page (which will appear on this website closer to the day). Download the Wetherspoon App and select the pub where your friend is at. Enter their table number which you should also see on the Secret Santa page once they've arrived. Order them what they wanted (or something fun!). Meanwhile patiently wait for your food or drink and send clues to each other to work out who ordered what!
Booking closes at 5pm Friday 6th of August!
To take part you will need to know two things: which Wetherspoons pub you will be at and whether you want to eat or drink. Make sure your Wetherspoons is available to select whilst booking, and if it isn't then let us know and we can make it available. If you have any dietary requirements make sure they are correct on the membership system and be sure to select the special options in the booking phase.
Everybody wants to have a good time and we don't want to cause any nuisance to the hard working staff. Every Wetherspoons is different: some will love what we're doing, some will go along with it and some might not be too happy. A lot of the time the staff get confused when they bring items to your table and you don't know what you're expecting. Politey explaining to the staff about what's going on might get them to understand. We have had cases where they have refused to take more app orders - to prevent this: be nice to them and try not to order too much silly stuff that wastes their time.
If you’ve played before you may have received a bowl of peas or other similar funny item, after all it’s part of the fun! What is sad is that sometimes food that is bought as a joke doesn’t get eaten, leaving a lot of wasted food behind. Not everybody is privileged enough to be able to afford to waste food so please don't be too silly. Please consider donating to the Trussel Trust Food Bank charity which help to combat food poverty in the UK. Also bring a Tuperware if you want to save any left overs and freeze them or have them for breakfast the next day!
