So.. anyone gonna be in London this coming week (nights of May 11-13)? Cause, like, pints and metafilter make a good mix.

Whereabouts in London are you going to be/ any preferred areas for meeting up? (Personal preference only: the City and South Bank are best for me, but anywhere in Zone 1 is good really).

Weds 12th is good for me. How about Soho?

Sounds good to me.

Any of those dates are fine for me and soho sounds good.

Where's Soho? I'm staying at the Chamberlain on Minorities...

rich, you mean the Chamberlain on Minories, right?

Soho is in the West End and there are lots of good places to eat/pubs there. The best Tube stops are Leicester Square or Oxford Circus.

I'm not too far from you during the day. How familiar are you with London? If you like, we could meet up at the hotel and then proceed from our destination from there.

Did anyone have a particular place in mind?

I like Bar Soho but then I'm a superannuated clubhound. Dome is also a good place to meet. If the weather's nice I'll be playing frisbee in Hyde Park beforehand - anyone want to join?

Make that Dôme (Old Compton Street).

This is happening the same night - perhaps we should join forces?
posted by cbrody at 5:34 PM on May 7, 2004

Sounds like a plan - we can join em.

I'm up for that too.

Might be an idea to write to James Cox [james (at) imajes (dot) info] as he's organising the evening.
