The Porterhouse on a Friday night? Fond of crowds, are we? (Not trying to be snarky, but any place in Covent Garden is going to be SRO on a Friday. Also, it's very loud there.)

I know I sound like an old man (largely because I am). But having been to a Meetup or two in my time, I've found that the success of the event largely depends on the participant's ability to comfortably converse with one another.

\my two cents

It is a Saturday, I fucked it up, don't know what I'm smoking this morning. Anyway, 23rd, 23rd, 23rd.

I agree with you, Optamystic, I don't think it's that bad on a Sat without the after-work crowd, and there's quite a few floors etc. We shall see.

Ooh, can I come? I am reasonably entertaining in small doses, especially over a beer.

I'll be in London from about 2PM, if anyone wants to persuade me to do something other than walk around a gallery before the meet.

Not going to make this one either I'm afraid, but the next one, promise.

Unless someone shouts real soon, I'm wandering alone in London from 2:30 'til 6:00
I'll check back here tomorrow morning to see if anyone's got a better plan...

Flaming wombats, it turns out I can't. Dammit.

Hang on. Is anybody going to OpenTech tomorrow (or, as I notice it's morning now, today)?

Just, you know, wondering.
