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 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.

"@London calling" Out of curiosity, what do they call that drink over there if not "Irish car bomb?"

@AndyLouis : also, you can be there for CS Lewis to get inducted into the Poets' Corner of Westminster Abbey!

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.

@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?

@Asatar : Maybe Ihsahn can join you guys? It's a short hop from Norway to London.

@AndyLouis : Don't shut down the pub now!

@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!

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

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..

Asatar:

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


CW to Green Park on Jub line is super easy.
