London meetup, 28 June 2007 June 28, 2007 3:11 AM   Subscribe

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.

The big Saturday thing is only two days away, I know, but:

(a) not everyone can make this weekend; and
(b) I need a drink tonight.

And once again, the MeFi sign will fail to make an appearance, because I haven't brought it to work with me. I might pop along, though, if I manage not to fall asleep on the Central Line and wake up in Loughton.

Can't do tonight unfortunately. Try to have fun in spite of the gaping hole my absence will doubtless leave.

What do you mean, 'Who are you?"

Yeah, I'll probably be there.

Haven't you people got any real friends? ;-)

Can't make tonight.
But can I just say how much I approve of the fact that London Meetup's have evolved from "Meetups" to "I am going for a drink".

This is the way forward.

Ah, sod. Don't think I can make tonight now.

But I'll have a drink by myself later on, simply out of my respect for you guys.

Yup, I like that excuse.</small.

Damn you, tags.

Can't make it, so I'll have a drink for all my London mefi-homies here in my, uh, new home in Madrid.

Uh, I'd have gone if I had time today to look at MeFi because I did also need a drink after work. That said, it was probably for the best for my poor, poor liver.

(I had my engagement party in that pub. It's great.)

I can't make it either since I live in the United States, and I don't drink anyway so I'll just have a can of Coke here in New York.

Is there a difference between meetups and "chrismear needs drinking buddies" in the UK?

Arg! Was there on Monday!

Despite the fact that only three of us made it, and there are no pictures (thank Christ for that at least) this was an amazing meet-up. Dancing to Spanish music for two hours at Costa Dorada in Hanway Street near Tottenham Court Road (that's just so I don't forget that address BTW) was unexpected. As was the fact that we got so shit-faced beforehand we FORGOT TO EAT!

Spanish places on Hanway street have featured heavily in MeFi meetups before, because they're great. Pretty_Generic still owes me an octopus.
posted by flashboy at 8:39 AM on July 1, 2007

That's probably because I keep dragging people there.

Pretty_Generic still owes me £400.

well see, Octopus & Spanish places are not mutually exclusive. Hmm Pulpo a la Gallega, I'm still seriously pissed off I forgot to eat in a Spanish place. Hell I learned to cook in Spain.
Can we have the next London meet-up there (oh Sorry, a meeting of CMs drinking buddies) so we can eat before we start drinking?
