Yes, another meetup in NYC

Bowling! It will be fun, no need to be any good at bowling (I'm useless, so you will probably be better than me). Let me know if you're in, so I have an idea of numbers. After bowling there will no doubt be food and drink somewhere nearby. (The map is not entirely accurate, but putting in the correct address somehow screws up Google Maps and brings up a location on the East River.)

Would any of you care to meet up for a beer with a lonesome traveler? [more inside]

Solo motty set Islington

I'll be playing some of my songs from albums new, old and as yet unrecorded at the lovely Phibbers bar on the Holloway Road, and it would be lovely to combine that with a drink with some fellow Mefites. The music is sort of bluesy folk-rock - you can have a listen here or here to see if it's your kind of thing. Other acts on the bill TBC - it's 3 on the door and I'll be playing a half hour set from 8.30pm.

PAX East after-hours meetup

We'll be meeting for drinks at Murphy's Law, of Gone Baby Gone fame. It's not the closest bar to BCEC, but it's a short easy walk, and hopefully that means it won't be too busy. This'll be Saturday night, overlapping some of the late Saturday events (JoCo and Omegathon round 3, in particular), but there's not a lot of drinking time that doesn't overlap, so there's really no choice.
