I'm visiting London March 5 - 16. London meetup? To tempt you further, here's a list of things I can rant about if asked: GOATS, how much I love Swedish pizza, the Sonoran Desert, why space opera is the best genre, and What Not to Do During Disaster. [more inside]
Updated Post: A plan has been confirmed! Park (day) and pub (night) meetup. If you'd like to take a walk around Holyrood Park, let's meet at 2 in front of The Queen's Gallery (at Parliament and the Palace). The night plan: 7pm at the Jolly Judge. There may be a separate food plan in between the park and pub, maybe not. I'll update the thread either way. [more inside]

It's starting to warm up, the pubs are plentiful, how about an East Midlands meetup? I'm based in Nottingham, you may be around that area, and it might be a delight. Heck, we could go to the Trip to Jerusalem and go hang out in one of the caves...

Hi Mefites -- Mrs. Dream and I will be in London on vacation later this month. Anyone interested in a Sunday meetup on October 24th? Let's meet at Walkers of Whitehall at 1pm for lunch and drinks, then walk down to Churchill's War Room, which is open until 6pm. Get as drunk as you like in honor of Churchill. I'll set up a MeFi sign on the table at Walkers. I'll update later with a phone number if I'm successful in jailbreaking my iphone and getting a SIM card.
The long national nightmare of getting my visa is over and I am coming to Birmingham to study next week. Would anyone in the Midlands (and elsewhere) be interested in a meet-up the weekend of October 8/9? It's been five years since I have been in Birmingham so suggestions of great places will be greatly and gladly appreciated.
A long, drawn out nightmare with my visa is finally all sorted out and I'll be in London from the 15th-17th! If you're not too meetup'ed out, please come have a celebratory drink with me. Looking forward to it (you have no idea how much)! [more inside]
I just moved to London for grad school. Anyone up for a pint? [more inside]
As the esteemed iamkimiam is due to make her arrival onto English soil soon, I submit that we should have a bit of a do in her honour. (As in, we sit in a pub with some cloudy drinks and make increasingly little sense over the course of a number of hours.) [more inside]
