I'll probably get there sometime after 5pm. Should I sit in a particular area, or grab a table?
posted by Elysum at 5:19 AM on July 2, 2015

I think my fiancé (zomg) will be there from around six, and he's planning to trundle upstairs and find a table big enough, for those for all those who want to, to eat a pie. If you beat him to it, I'd say upstairs as there aren't many proper-sized spots downstairs even though it is prettier :)

EDIT: whoops no he's getting there later than I thought. yes please to bagsing a table! we should both be there around six.

I will probably be along a little later, as I have an errand to run in Soho. So if the plans change and you move on, be sure to update the thread.
posted by essexjan at 7:47 AM on July 2, 2015

Will do :)

We are upstairs at the Princess Louise, on the table with the 'MEFI' sign (thanks Elysum!).

So nice to meet you guys (and see you again, crocomancer)

Smashing meetup. Sorry I had to leave early-ish.
posted by essexjan at 11:39 AM on July 3, 2015

Yes, it was a good evening. I would have liked to stay longer as I didn't manage to talk to everyone, but I succumbed to good sense and catching the train!
