[An alternative to the] Stand Up To Racism Demo - London

Edited: Given the problematic elements with Stand up to Racism (please see links in this thread), I'd like to find a better way to take a stand against structures of violence — one that is inclusive, looks out for survivors and creates a safe space for everybody. I've edited this post title, new copy is in brackets. I've moved the original post copy below here, kept for posterity. --- Original post: >Would anybody like to meet up for and/or after the March Against Racism National demonstration on March 18, 2017 in London? >This Stand Up to Racism Demo is for UN Anti-Racism Day. Other UK rallies are happening same day in Glasgow and Cardiff. [more inside]

A very Mefi post-holiday meetup

Would you like to decompress from the holidays? Why not start your year off right with a low-key Metafilter meetup? Join us! Let's meet inside the The George Inn Yard, 77 Borough High St, London SE1 1NH. If there are objections to the venue let me know, I'm happy to meet at a different venue as well (especially if you can suggest a nice quiet place).

Liberty Tales - Book Launch

2015 marked the 800th anniversary of the first Magna Carta, and Liberty Tales is a collection of stories and poems that take a wide-ranging collection of responses to the issues of liberty, both personal and legal. Some relate to specific clauses of the original document, while others are more concerned with how we experience and search after freedom in the 21st century. This launch event will feature stories from Katy Darby, Alison Lock, Cherry Potts, Anna Fodorova (read by Carrie Cohen) and David Guy (read by Cliff Chapman), along with poems from Bernie Howley and Jeremy Dixon.

Liars' League - Us and Them

Liars' League is a themed monthly fiction night, where professional actors read new short stories by writers from around the world. The stories this month feature baby rats, traumatised soldiers, uppity moths, self-consuming metafiction, 80s action figures, and a very sinister housing committee. No narrator is too unusual, no story too strange for our Us & Them event, as we hand over the mike to collective voices, extraordinary viewpoints and life-or-death clashes and connections.

Semi-centenary Gig

I'll be playing a gig on Thursday 23rd October to mark my birthday, which is on Friday. What I didn't realise until recently was that it would engender a combination of performance anxiety, promoter anxiety and pre-party anxiety (what I referred to yesterday as the Neapolitan Ice Cream of anxiety), so now I'm using whatever means I can to spread the information. This may be an abuse of IRL, in which case, sorry. [more inside]

I would like to meet some London mefites in April.

I moved to London last year but I have not managed to meet up with any London mefites yet, I feel like it would be fun to go to a pub and meet you guys. Perhaps we can bring board games or card games to play? The Penderel's Oak is a pub(wetherspoons) in the centre that I know is nice and big - would anyone like to have a london mefi meetup there next month? Edit: OK, 5th of April Then, I will bring a sign with a mefi logo on it and will be there from 7 till whenever. Please bring games if you have them. :)

In London from 27 Sept - 1 Oct...let's meet!

The London meetups are shapin' up! Plans for Friday are here; this is the Saturday thread. Please feel free to simply show up to any/all of this fun. Let's start with the Science Museum at 1pm. We'll meet right out front, here. Then roughly about 4pm, let's head over to Taqueria for Mexican food, here. Then off to begin the pub crawl, starting at 6pm at The Slaughtered Lamb, here.
This is a google map of the day.

I'm open to doing and seeing other things as well...schedule is fairly open. At the very least, let's do a meetup. And if anybody would like to join me at the convention, that'd be great too. Or something else fun. (Updated meetup details within) [more inside]

Fun in London

Hi! I've got this train ticket to London burning a hole in my pocket. It's for Saturday, July 7th and I should arrive around 12:30. What say we do a meetup that day/evening? Who's in and what shall we do? Update: meetup back to proposed. I still have a train ticket, but can reschedule it for another weekend (granted I make the change by the 7th). Any Londonders wanna meet up?

The Empress Lands In London

Good Mefites of London: last year when I visited London, and only gave myself three days, I said "I should come back next year and stay a bit longer." This year, I am indeed doing that (from 27 May to 2 June); it has been proposed we start with cocktails here, and then a meal after. [more inside]

When in London, meetup!

I'm in London the first weekend of March. Presumably many of you are in London then too (or always are). Let's meet up! [Specifically: we'll meet at noon on March 4 at Marble Arch - essexjan says it's at the right corner of Hyde Park for Speaker's Corner, and you can't miss it, it's a huge great marble arch in the middle of the road. ] As linked in this comment, we'll head to Richoux afterwards, specifically the one at Mayfair at 41a South Audley Street. Might be sooner rather than later if the talk about rain is truth. [more inside]
