London meetup this week?

I'm in London this week, representing San Francisco, and would love to get together with UK Mefites. Tuesday? Pub? Some place where conversation is possible?

I'm unsure if I can make it, but the Royal Oak might be a good a meeting place - it's a tiny bit off the beaten track, depending on where you're staying (a little south of London Bridge), but it's quiet, no music, no jukebox, good food and a good range of British beer.

Whereabouts are you staying, Zippy?

I'm staying near Queens Park, but am in central London most days, so anywhere in Zone 1 works for me. Have Oyster Card, will travel.

If you're looking for a decent Briitsh beer I thoroughly recommend the Jerusalem Tavern if you find yourself nearby. Not sure if I can make it out on Tuesday, though, unfortunately.

The Jerusalem does get extremely busy though. Much as I love it I always find it oppressive.

Having zero experience with London, I second the Royal Oak as a fine candidate for a Metafilter meetup. Anyone else?

Can't make Tuesday I'm afraid.

You mean this one, I take it? Don't think I will be able to make it, alas.

OK, show of hands by Tuesday noon. If we get four people I'm in. Otherwise, if any of y'all want to meet for breakfast, lunch, tea, etc Tue or Wed, let me know. My email's in my profile. If you're in the tech or music business, be aware that I may subject you to the demo.

only 1% of respondents report the procedure as painful and unpleasant.

Oh wait, my email is not in my profile. Er, MeMail me!
