ETA: Since the weather is slated to be gorgeous we will try to get a table outdoors. I will likely be easy to spot as I have bright red and yellow hair and a loud American accent. I may try to make a sign. We will be in York and would love to meet up with other MeFites as we take a break from visiting everything FPP-worthy in town! We've chosen The Maltings Free House because it's recommended in the Good Pub Guide. If we should view this as the Not So Good Pub Guide please let us know now. It's very close to the train station and offers charming food such as "burnt bread with various fillings" as well as an array of beers, whiskeys and fruit wines (and I'm assuming some non-alcoholic beverages as well).
Helen and I are, uncharacteristically, in town this week. Who among you hoopy froods would like to come and answer 40 hard questions as best we can?
I almost misspelled "trivia" in the title, which indicates we need to do this more often.
I like trivia, and so do you. Let's make the weekly game at G&D happen again.
Who's up for a trivia run next Tuesday? Lurkers? Anybody? Usual suspects?
George met a Dragon. Rather than fight, they opened a pub together and had awesome trivia.
Our bizarre hybrid of "knowing things" and "the other thing" seems to be a real winner. Or at least places a solid second on a regular basis. Let's go unseat the champions!
Hey, crew. Happy new year! Wanna get trivial?
Whatever the weather, how about pub quiz *next* week?
Anyone up for the usual trivia at the George and Dragon?
Let's all work off our various holiday meals with onion rings and a sense of intellectual achievement.
In theory a trivia attendee had news. Plus, there are fun questions. Anyone in?
The pub quiz at the George and Dragon in Fremont. I hear there may be good news from a local. [more inside]
Pub quiz! Tomorrow! We know we can, do we think we should?
The usual thing at the usual place. [more inside]
At the George and Dragon, this Tuesday. Lurkers, we're -- mm -- not so bad, mostly.
There is no Lowcountry Cabal. Maybe we can change that? [more inside]
I've got a group of three or maybe four people who will be carrying on the MDC tradition at the George on Tuesday. JOIN US. [more inside]
That time of week draws near again, and I've missed trivial facts. I'm bringing two people with me, so we only need three more to round out the crew. Unless we want to divide and conquer, of course! (Moved the date to Sept 5, which was my original intent)
Pub quiz night at the George and Dragon, Fremont. [more inside]
Time again for Tuesday trivia at the George & Dragon. Regular participants and those that haven't done it before all welcome. Onion rings will be shared. Drinks will be drunk. Questions will be answered.
Same bat-time, same bat-channel? We tied for third (out of four) last week... let's see if we can't do a bit better this time!
More of the same after last week's victory
Pub quiz at the George and Dragon, low key, reasonably funny, onion rings. Regulars? Lurkers? Comeback tours? All welcome.
Slightly more lead time this week - ChrisR and I enjoyed last week but it'd be nice to have a more diverse team so we don't lose our street cred. [more inside]
Come to the pub! Have a drink. [more inside]
Anyone else up for trivia quiz night? Returning champions? Anyone? [more inside]
It's meetup number V. It's May! [more inside]
Well, last week was weird, but it paid off in Lego at least, if not in victory. I'll be there again this week. Who's in?
Hey, after last week off, this week's on. G&D, the usual?
Because (a) we haven't had a pub meetup in a while, along with (b) my own rather sequestered circumstances and (c) general consternation over the state of the nation, I could really use a restorative or three and some amiable palaver.
Pub quiz night at the George and Dragon.
Last month was a bit tricky, but we did it! Let's do it again! [more inside]
Pub quiz night at the George and Dragon. Sometimes we win. Sometimes we think we're really funny. Come if you haven't been, come if you're a lurker, come if you're a regular.
I'll be in Toronto next Saturday (March 18) - mandolin conspiracy will be playing mandolin with a group at the The Cloak & Dagger Irish Pub that night! [more inside]
The George and Dragon has a guest trivia presenter this week, apparently. Let's see if we can repeat our 38-point showing from last week.
Pub quiz night tonight? Short notice, drippy weather, but it's been weeeeeeks. Two, that's plural. [more inside]
In an attempt to make this monthly thing fly, here's the third installment. [more inside]
After an honestly mixed showing last week, it's time for the crew to ride again. Tuesday, George & Dragon, 7:45-8:00, Trivia!
Trivia at the George and Dragon, as usual. [more inside]
New year, new facts, old game: who's up for the pub trivia night at the George and Dragon?
Radiocontrolled organised us a really fun meetup for this January, and it seemed like a good idea to make this a slightly more regular thing. So Behold! The very
first Second Regular London Meetup
(Whooo!, Cheering!, Streamers! Confetti! etc.) [more inside]
Would you like to decompress from the holidays? Why not start your year off right with a low-key Metafilter meetup? Join us! Let's meet inside the The George Inn Yard, 77 Borough High St, London SE1 1NH. If there are objections to the venue let me know, I'm happy to meet at a different venue as well (especially if you can suggest a nice quiet place).
Tuesday trivia at the George and Dragon.
I has been in the Edinburgh for nearly a year, and I would much like to meet muh fellow Mefites. There is much to discuss about the joys and travails of life in North Britain, yet nothing that wouldn't be improved by beer and bonhomie. Here's the plan. [more inside]
It's been a while since our last local beer & conversation meetup, and I found myself thinking it's about time for another one. [more inside]
Pub quiz at the George and Dragon, as so often before.
