Here’s the news from Kate T. from London:
August London meetup is upon us!
Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, SE1 8XX near Waterloo station, 2nd August, 11am onwards.
This time it’s puzzles! Please bring a jigsaw or a crossword or a puzzle toy or anything along those lines, preferably something which can be done by more than one person together. Or bring your best brainage to solve other people’s puzzles.
This venue is working out really well.
They sell food in a cafe (standard sandwiches etc.), but they also don’t mind people bringing food in from outside. There are several other local places where you can buy stuff as well. The excellent food market outside has loads of different food options, which can fit most food requirements, or you can also bring a packed lunch.
Meet on the fourth floor, outside the Blue Bar (go up in the JCB lift, lift 7, which is bright yellow and quite musical). If you have been to a meetup previously on the second floor, we are now in the equivalent place horizontally, but two floors up vertically, if that makes sense?

I will have my Cthulhu with me, which looks like this: http://forbiddenplanet.com/3950-cthulhu-baby-plush/ I have long brown hair and glasses.
The venue is accessible via a lift, and has accessible toilets.
The London Awkward group has a Facebook page, which is here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/549571375087294/. There is also a thread in the new forums for saying hello.

(September meetup will be on the 13th.)
And here is Kate G. from Bristol:
Hi Captain! We’re meeting up. A shout-out would be very much appreciated, as is your continuing general awesomeness. Thanks!
It’s meetup time again in Bristol UK! At the August meet, we shall be playing board games, as well as our usual feast of talking about all things Awkward.
If that sounds like fun to you, please do come on down to The Canteen on Stokes Croft from 11am on Saturday 16th August, where I will be on hand with a Superman snakes-and-ladders/ludo set, as well as a bit of leftover colouring-in from a previous meetup.
Here’s the full address:
Hamilton House 80 Stokes Croft Bristol BS1 3QY http://www.canteenbristol.co.uk/
There is a car park at the back of the building that does one hour for free or all day for £5. For more ‘how to find it’ info you can click here: http://www.hamiltonhouse.org/getting-here/
The Canteen is on the ground floor and accessible by ramp, and has a disabled access bathroom. It also has a take-a-book-leave-a-book library corner and serves reasonably priced organic meals (think pub-grub prices), as well as cheese boards, bread-and-olives, and a selection of cakes. The bar serves hot and cold drinks including alcoholic beverages.
I will be sitting at a table from 11 ó clock wearing a green t-shirt with ‘#Anniesmove’ printed across the front. I have short dark hair and glasses. Hope to see you there!
