Metafiltroids daisyk and Zarkonnen are currently in Helsinki for Worldcon 75. Surely we are not the only Metafiltonites here? Let's meet up at Olutravintola Nurkka, a pub a few hundred metres away from the site!

Sounds great. I'll plan to be there.

Update: 8 PM is exactly when the Clipping concert happens, so I may TRY to go to that first. I don't expect to get in.

Noted! daisyk and I are the couple with the blue-green hair, including in my case, a blue-green beard.

It looks like I'm going to make at least SOME of the Clipping show. Will check this thread when I'm done, but don't wait up on my account.

I thought the Clipping show was another night, dang! Oh well, Zarkonnen and I are at the pub, and Kattullus just joined with some lapsed MeFites. :D

I'm coming to see Katullus outside the convention center tomorrow around 1500ish, if anyone would like to DM for contact details/planning

I've been in touch with K regarding why I couldn't make it on Thursday etc

Or, just find Katullus already and we'll all connect there and then :)
