Meet up sounds good. I'll be there unless I have papers due on the 6th that I haven't finished.

Two other quick things I'd like to mention for @AndyLouis :

1. Try doing an Irish Car Bomb with Young's Double Chocolate Stout instead of Guinness. Delicious.
2. Chugging contest.

That is all.

I am thinking about joining one of the meetings! Is it a nice way to network with current investment bankers, or are there mostly just students/ people interested in finance looking for a job?

Nov 20, 2013

I've only been to the NYC meetups which have been mostly professionals attending (there were at 21+ bars), but imagine there will be a mix of professionals and students attending

I would be in for both days. I was also at the WSO meeting in London - George Pub is a nice pub and very easy to find. It was not crowded at all when we had the meeting so it was really a great pub for the meeting.

Nov 19, 2013

great, ill get something official up today

I must say there was rather a bit too much Celine Dion being played at the George during the last WSO meetup... That said, in for either date. Would suggest the Vintry as a potential alternative - Fuller's pub, massive beer and ale selection, and in the middle of Bank / Monument / Mansion House tube stations.

Nov 19, 2013

will get something official up today for wed the 4th, will prob just go with the george. if they're playing Celine Dion don't worry i'll have it taken care of

Hey @AndyLouis you had the wrong address for the pub.

We met up at : 40 Liverpool St, London EC2M 7QN

Easiest way to find it is to come out of Liverpool Street station, Starbucks side if I remember correctly and go straight right. It will be on your right and most likely packed.

If we got a head count going in order to try and reserve some tables that would be cool, I know we were all regretting our huge circle we formed at the door last time.

Nov 20, 2013

got it fixed, thanks, how many showed up last time? i

Want to say somewhere from 10 maybe up to 15?

I know me @asatar and some others ended up going to the bar down the road after for a little.

I left early from that, so depending on their work load right now expect a good night haha

...

Nov 21, 2013

@Asatar : Did you wow her with her metal impressions? Channel your inner Ihsahn?

@AndyLouis : whoa whoa whoa....what do you mean, "probably" be talking to the hottest lass in the pub?

I'll tweet him!

Dec 3, 2013

@Asatar : Be careful, he may bring a few of his Black Wizards with him for company...all joking aside, he'd be one intimidating dude to drink with!

Ihsahn, Johan Hegg from Amon Amarth, Ozzy, Alexi Laiho = dream drinking crowd

why do the meetings always have to be in the city? I think the next one should def. be in Mayfair

Mid way between Mayfair and the Wharf and in the City = maximum accessibility! Might consider one around Covent Garden / Soho though.

Dec 4, 2013

count me in for Soho / Covent Garden but I'm not making the trip when I get out late to Liverpool Street only to cab it back to Notting Hill later..
