It's that time once again--the London Mefite contingent is going to do battle tonight with Reddit in an epic pub quiz
. It's a smaller crowd this time, with only nine of us confirmed, but it's still enough to do two teams.
Come by and cheer us on, or do so here. As usual, one of us will be posting updates at the halfway mark and afterward.
Good morning westerners! In just over four hours, our Trivial Special Forces will reassemble in central London to do battle with our arch-nemeses, Reddit
, in a re-match after we mopped the floor with them last time
. Current IRL thread here
. Any MeFites in London are encouraged to come along and participate and/or cheer us on. Live updates in this thread will follow I'm sure, though we will go dark during the quiz. Tally-ho! [more inside]
Reddit has discovered that the London Mefites are going to a pub quiz at the Hat and Tun on 10th Oct
, and are proposing to 'hand their asses to them
', along with alien signs, hats, vuvuzelas, etc.
The gauntlet has been thrown, Mefites, and we must respond with overwhelming pancakes. [more inside]

In this thread
about Antony Gormley's One and Other art project in Trafalgar Square this summer, Mr Mustard said that he would post to Mefi from the plinth if picked.
As I'm appearing on there tomorrow (Mon 21st) I feel honour-bound to do just that. Possible mini-meetup... [more inside]

I will be in London attending a conference Oct 12 - 19. The conference doesn't run through that whole time period, so I will have some free time, probably Friday evening and definitely Saturday. It's my first time visiting London and would love to meet MeFi folks.

I was very excited to learn at a recent meetup that I am not the only London MeFite with a fondness for dim sum. So – who else is in for dim sum at Chuen Cheng Ku
(as recommended in this thread
)? Wilder will be in town on the Saturday the 25th, and is in. Let’s meet outside on Wardour Street at 12:30 p.m.
This year's Battle of Ideas will take place on 27 & 28 October at London's Royal College of Art.
It seems like the sort of thing people here would be interested in, anyone else going along? Much interesting discussion will be had no doubt and presumably a not insigificant amount of alcohol (if the governments binge drinking figures are to be trusted) will be consumed post-debate.
Disclaimer: One of my friends is talking at the event and many of them are involved in the organistation that runs it.
Have a look at BBC Prom 6 from 10.15pm on the 17th July.
I'm going to suggest a mini London MetaProm6 meet-up somewhere near the Royal Albert Hall.
[MI]I'm free from 5.30. The Hubby can be here from 7. How about a mini-meet-up that ends up with Prom 6?
(as opposed to the debauched ending our London Meet-ups normally have?)
Reminder: London meet up
on Saturday 30 June, South Bank & Hammersmith. 11.30am under the clock at Waterloo
(look for a gold balloon) for those doing BookCrossing
, and 4.30-5 onwards at the Dove
, Hammersmith, for those doing alcohol
. Full details on the other thread
You remember that thing about London meetups happening far too frequently
? Well, it's happening again. Short-notice meetup, tonight (Thursday 28th), Cittie of Yorke
, 7pm onwards.
I will be traveling across a plethora of hemispheres, and will be in London between the 19 of June and the 8th of July. I'm normally of southern hemisphere so if anyone wants to meet for a drink - that would be lovely. Name a date (and possibly a place as I don't know the geography terribly well) and I will be there.
London meet-ups, eh? There sure are a lot of them about at the moment, but on the off-chance that any of you are not already suffering from 'meet-up fatigue', there's yet another one planned for Monday, June 11. It's a result of this
AskMe thread, and is your chance to welcome lackutrol
to these shores. The venue will be the excellent Jerusalem Tavern
, from around 5.30-6.00 onwards.
Following up on tonight's goodness, let's do a London meetup with a bit more notice. (more inside)
Late-notice London meetup
: Tuesday 5 June, 4pm onwards, The Salisbury, St Martin's Lane
London Picnic: Now switched to Saturday May 5th, 2pm. Details inside.
