Mon November 12 at 6:00 PM, Princess Louise
208 High Holborn, Bloomsbury, London Borough of Camden, WC1V, UK (Map & Directions)
Hi, I'll be in London near Lincoln's Inn Fields next week, from Sunday to noon Thursday. Any London mefites want to meet a mefite from the U.S.? I have no car but a sense of adventure. I'll buy you a pint, of whatever.

Yes indeed. I'll be up for that.

I'm also up for something.
that is the centralest of central London, a car would do you no good there at all.
The better question is whether you have an oyster and a sense of adventure.

Do you mean from the 17th to the 22nd? I'm up for something, but working fulltime and busy Monday and probably Tuesday evenings. Sunday would be best!

A pint of oysters, eh?

I'd be up for that as well, don't know the pubs in that area but I'm sure there's a decent selection.

*Throws hat in ring*

There are indeed loads of decent pubs in the Holborn area, a few of which were discussed in this recent FPP. The Princess Louise is particularly fine (and just up the road from my office), but I'm up for anywhere!

Cool. I'm going to be there the 11th through the 15th, leaving at noon. Is Monday evening workable? Wednesday I'll be in Milton Keynes until 5 or 6. And I love oysters.

Monday works well for me.

I'm out for dinner with colleagues on Monday, but if you're still out later in the evening then I'll come join =)

Beer you say?

Think I'm around Monday as well.

A beer in the Princess Louise on Monday night? It features nooks.

I prefer Kindles, but could live with a nook (sorry, I work in publishing). Shall we call it confirmed and post it? 6-ish at Princess Louise?
posted by Toekneesan at 2:19 PM on November 9, 2012


Go for it!
posted by HandfulOfDust at 1:48 AM on November 10, 2012


Woohoo - my office is five minutes away, I'm pretty sure I can make this.
posted by freya_lamb at 2:35 AM on November 10, 2012


Works for me - it's right on my Tube line, although I might be there some time after six, as I have to go home first and then come back into town. if you move on, will you text me, Handful of Dust?
posted by essexjan at 2:36 AM on November 10, 2012


Will do, Jan!
posted by HandfulOfDust at 2:55 AM on November 10, 2012


I'd love to come & I can make it for 7 -- that ok?
posted by radiocontrolled at 9:20 AM on November 10, 2012


I'm pretty sure I'll still be there by 7. Please do join us!

Damn a metafilter meetup right round the corner from where I live/work...and I'm in San Francisco when it happens. Oh well have fun!
posted by Erberus at 3:59 PM on November 10, 2012


My office is also just around the corner! I think I can stop by for a pint :)
posted by sundaydriver at 1:44 AM on November 11, 2012


Hoping to make it, but work and transport could be problems. In theory could be there about 7:30.
posted by TheophileEscargot at 12:28 AM on November 12, 2012


I have circular glasses, a braided ponytail, and a beard. See you tonight.
posted by Toekneesan at 1:46 AM on November 12, 2012


I'm round the corner as well! I'll pop down :)
posted by greenish at 2:11 AM on November 12, 2012


I'll be there being overly formal.
I should be wearing a black suit, blue and white striped shirt and a MeFi [+] badge.
posted by Just this guy, y'know at 2:29 AM on November 12, 2012


I'd like to drop in but I was late in this morning and server problems have put us half a day behind, so I might end up missing it.

I’m glad you posted a description of yourself, Toekneesan! I* shall be there from about 6pm too, but given the Princess Louise’s eccentric layout (which is part of its charm, of course), we might have some trouble finding each other. Anyway: see you later!

I will be popping in for a pint some time after 6 too...

I'm really sorry, I won't make it this evening. I've been in the office since 7am, it's been a gruelling day and I'm exhausted. So sorry - I do like to meet new MeFites.

BTW, HandfulOfDust is a tall, middle-aged glamorous, stylish brunette.

Yeah, if someone wants to post here to say which alcove peeps are in that'd be handy I suspect.

I'll be there in 45mins or so. If you see a baldy man with a moustache wearing a camel coat it's me.
posted by garius at 9:34 AM on November 12, 2012


Well I'm here, drinking wheat beer and trying to find an identifiable alcove
posted by Just this guy, y'know at 9:46 AM on November 12, 2012


Okay, the nooks were confusing, so I went upstairs
posted by Just this guy, y'know at 9:51 AM on November 12, 2012


on my way!
posted by radiocontrolled at 10:13 AM on November 12, 2012


Chicken!

At Holborn. There in 2mins
posted by garius at 10:14 AM on November 12, 2012


On my way now, be there in 10, got any tips for finding y'alls?
posted by greenish at 10:48 AM on November 12, 2012


On the bus, there in 15 minutes or so.
posted by TheophileEscargot at 10:56 AM on November 12, 2012


Hey greenish, we're upstairs with not quite enough room. Toekneesan is wearing a bright blue metafilter t shirt backwards
posted by Just this guy, y'know at 11:06 AM on November 12, 2012


Nice to meet everyone :)
posted by greenish at 1:56 AM on November 13, 2012


I had a lot of fun. Thanks for coming, everyone!
