Fri May 17 at 6:30 PM, The Hour Glass, 279-283 Brompton Road, SW3 2DY
279-283 Brompton Road, Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, London SW3 2DY, UK (Map & Directions)
For people who want to meet for a drink before and/or after the Bowie exhibition at the V&A. I know not everyone was able to get a ticket for the exhibition, but we'd love to see you at the pub.
I've found a pub that's close to both South Kensington Tube station and the museum, and it's open until 11.30pm on Fridays. I think it'd be great to meet before the exhibition at 6.30 for anyone who wants an early drink and then retire to the pub after the exhibition at about 10pm, Anyone who wants to join us before or after the exhibition (I know not everyone was able to get tickets) can come along.

I'll be around before, and possibly after if there are enough people not attending the museum to sustain the meetup in the intervening times.

I should be entirely recognisable in a green hoodie with a Silver/Glow-in-the Dark MetaFilter proudly emblazoned upon it. (Unless I forget to bring it.)

I should be able to make it early on (7ish) and would be happy to stay for the in-betweenish time. Will probably have to make an early night of it, though.

It'll be lovely to see you, Gordafarin.

And, Just this guy, y'know - do not forget that jacket!

I'll definitely be there after, have to see if I can make it before as well.

I'll be around before for a short time if others are there - have another engagement from 7:45 but would love to meet up before then :p

So, how many people are up for the post-Bowie?
posted by ersatz at 8:12 AM on May 16, 2013


I should be along for pre- and maybe post-Bowie also.

So I just stepped off a plane and am feeling a bit like death warmed over. I'm afraid I can't really see myself making it to any of the fun events tonight. :( I know this is probably a wild shot in the dark, but maybe somebody really would like to go to the exhibition later, and would like to use my ticket in my stead? If you have access to an email account and a printer, it's yours for the taking. It has my name on it, but I can't imagine anyone will be scrutinizing them that closely. If you'd like to go, please let me know (either in thread or by memail), and I'll email you the PDF so you can print it out for yourself.

Just this guy, y'know has helpfully offered to print out the ticket and have it available at the meetup for anyone who wants it, so if you're interested, please speak to him!
posted by catch as catch can at 9:13 AM on May 17, 2013


I've printed out Catch as catch can's ticket and will bring it to the pub, so if anyone wants it they can grab it from me there.

We're at the pub.

The lovely Grangousier has taken the spare ticket.

I got it, so now I'm making a pilgrimage to the shrine of Our Lady of the Regrettable Trousers.

Just this guy and I are still at the pub and will likely stay until the post-Bowie meet up, in case anyone's around now.
posted by katrielalex at 12:50 PM on May 17, 2013


They've successfully given me the slip, and I'm through the exhibition, so I'm heading back to the pub.

Agh, it totally slipped my mind that this was today (for some reason I was thinking it wasn't til next month). Sorry to have missed you all.

Thanks for the meet up all. I had a very fun night.
