THAT London (aka "Fake" London) Gathering Plannings & Stuff

jalestrojalestro Posts: 37
I'm really good at making titles for things.  Can you tell?  Currently, I know @Cassie, @Meredith and @teknicolourful are all interested in a gathering here.  Who else is interested?

Also, when works for people?  I'm happy to plan things, I'm even happy to host (I have a very nerdfightastic apartment with tons of board games, DFTBA Records albums, other great music, geeky movies and TV etc, etc) or set something up at a all ages friendly venue like a bowling alley or something less physical that I can't think of at the moment.

However, I leave London on December 14th and won't be back for sure until August 2013 do to immense and awesome travel plans that are mostly irrelevant to this discussion.  So it would have to be before then if I'm organizing.

Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions? Need more info? Comment below!

    I would be happy to get together before you go and my work schedule is pretty flexible so I can probably work around most things.  So whatever works for others I'll probably be down for. 

    Also, I haven't really lived here very long so I'm not quite sure about good places to meet and that sort of stuff.

    I think most people would be more comfortable in a public place...could we rent somewhere? We can try and get something together before you go but that puts quite the time crunch on it!

    I agree that a public place would be more comfortable and easier for more people too.

    The time crunch is probably unreasonable to get something fully organized in the next 3 weeks... Hopefully this first one will be awesome and there will be more meetups when I'm back in London.

    @IAmANerd I hope there's another gathering, I was not on the forums since the pre-hacker days. London could really use another Nerdfighter gathering. @jalestro Still interested in trying to organize?
