Tue September 21 at 6:30 PM, Queens Arms
30 Queen's Gate Mews, Kensington, Greater London SW7 5, UK (Map & Directions)
Metafiltrians of London, I will be in the capital on the evening of the 21st: does anyone fancy a wee meetup? I haven't yet sorted out accommodation and so forth, but I expect I'll be somewhere in the approximate vicinity of Imperial College. If people are up for it and know a good place to go nearby, please suggest it; I barely know London at all, so I'm relying on youse for ideas. I wasn't thinking of anything big, probably just drinks and maybe a meal. Hopefully see you in a week or so's time!

Evening of the 21st works for me. No idea where though, don't really know South Ken too well.

I can't make it, but please do go to The Queens Arms, Queens Gate Mews, just off Queens Gate, which runs right along the west side of Imperial College's campus. It's a great little pub with food, and all sorts of fun things happen there. When I was a regular there back in the early to mid 90's the students called it "99" - for lecture room 99. I guess they must have had 98 rooms on campus......

I will try to make it; suggest you make this official rather than proposed so that more people can see this :)

My old neighborhood! I might be able to make it. Seconding Infinite Jest's suggestion above.

There we go! I've taken Nick Verstayne's suggestion and plumped for the Queens Arms as a meetup spot. I've put 6:30 as a tentative time, but feel free to come by whenever. Apologies for so late a firming up of plans, but up until this morning I didnae really know when I'd be getting in. See youse there.

I should be there by about 6.30-7.

I appear to be totally meeting'd up at work this afternoon, but I will also aim for 6.30. For purpose of recognition, there's a big number 9 on my shirt.

Aye, good idea. Similarly, if folk are looking for me, I'm white, I have a beard and puffball hair, and I'll be wearing glasses and a black shirt.

I will be wearing a lightish blue shirt and carrying a black backpack.

I was planning to come but was scuppered by an urgent plumbing situation. Hope you have a good time!

Many thanks to you for the delicious biscuits :). Good to meet Dim Siawns and Pallas Athena, and to see permafrost again.

Cheers all, had a good time in London. Hopefully we can catch up again next time I'm about.
