London midweek January meet-up

Tue January 22 at 7:00 PM, The George
The George Inn Yard, 77 Borough High St, London SE1 1NH, UK (Map & Directions)
[confirmed!] Would people be up for a central London midweek meetup sometime in January?
Maybe a pub near London Bridge?

I've never attended, let alone planned, a mefi meetup before, but it's been something I've wanted to try for some time. Tips from seasoned meetup-planners would be welcomed!

I'm pretty flexible re: dates. How about Tuesday 22 Jan?

"definitely maybe", as I'm from out of London, and it might clash with something else. So excuse the very non-committal interest...

If I don't have teaching training, I am 100% on it like a bonnet.

Advice is to book or just drape yourself over tables, make sure you have a sign with a Professional White Background that signifies MetaFilter (as we probably won't know you on sight) and be willing to chill alone as people drift in and out at odd times.

Amazing! So glad there is interest. How do people feel about The George from 7pm? I will sort out tables and a sign...

The George on the 22nd would work for me.

That is awesome, guys. I'm going to move this into confirmed and book tables and things closer to the day.

I'm not in London proper but I do have a day off that day, so I might be able to make this! It's been too long since I went to a meetup, so I'd love to come.

I haven't been to that pub in 11 years, but I enjoyed it.

Can't make it. Stuck in Trumpsvilvania for the foreseeable future... if there is one.

Oops. Checked my photos, and I visited the George Inn on a London Walk with my now ex-girlfriend Mary (still friends!) and my friend John (who as living and working in London at the time).... 18 years ago. Dang, I'm old.

I'm a possible. Will have to see what my week is looking like, but probably more likely than not to come along.
