London dim sum meetup – Saturday the 25th of August August 14, 2007 3:13 PM   Subscribe

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.

Also, the 21st will be my 6-year anniversary as a (very low profile) MeFite.

Damn - I'm out of town that weekend. But for the record, dim sum is excellent. I just wanted to say that.

Alas, it has been 10 months since I have been in nyc. My choice of username was not very forward-looking.

Sorry to hear that you'll be out of town, flashboy.

All my ideas for leave town that weekend have kinda fizzled, so I'm in.

You're clearly the nightbird and I'm a morning... what exactly?? Have been working since 4am and thrilled to see this up.

Dim Sum, Mmmm, can we do one of my other London things after lunch, like the Sir John Soames? I'll have Mr Wilder & Wildersprog 1 in tow so our shoe-shopping expedition may have to wait unless we have any closet shoe fetishists on who just want to tag along and watch us prance about in heels.....

Maybe end up in the theatre?

Rats, I can't do it, my sister, plus two dachshunds, will be here that day.

Count me in.

Provisionally sounds good, should be able to make it. John Soames is a cool place, well worth visiting.

I'll come along.

I've never had dim sum. Reckon I might turn up!

It looks as though we will have a good crowd!

Wilder, one should always end up in the theatre.

But one should never let one's daughter end up there, so another taboo I'll be breaking!

Some of us will end up that evening at Avenue Q if anyone is interested.

I've got a driving lesson that exact same moment. My apologies will have to attend instead.

(Hint: Don't park near Strawberry Hill station)

No London meet-up metatalk discussion is complete without me idly promising to be there and not turning up.

I'll be there.
posted by oh pollo! at 7:21 AM on August 23, 2007

I'm heading there now. We'll wait outside until at least 12:40 and then (if there is no queue) head in.

See you there!

CCK is renovating so we are off to New World which is a few blocks away. I think it is linked on the dim sum thread. E-mail me (address is in profile) if need be.
