This isn’t a Awkward Army event, per se, but if you are in Chicago and get a free moment tonight, stop by Wicker Park for some pie (& revolution!) from frequent commenter Sarahcircusnachos. They’ll be set up at 6:00 pm by the water fountain near Damen & Schiller. Bringing your own food &/or something potluck to share is totally welcome but in no way required. Free pie until they run out of pie, free comradeship always. The pie recipe is on her site so you can tell in advance if it’s safe for you to eat. I will definitely be there, probably taking pictures, so say hello if you stop by.
Hello, London! Sorry I didn’t get the notice up before the weekend.
The next London meetup will start at 11am on June 1st, in the Southbank Centre, Belvedere Road, SE1 8XX. It’s on the bank of the Thames near Waterloo station.
Everyone is welcome.
There’s a big open area on the first floor (accessible via lift), with loads of tables scattered around. They have accessible toilets etc.
They sell food in a cafe (standard sandwiches, soup, cakes), but they also don’t mind people bringing food in from outside, either as a packed lunch or as takeaway from any of the many local restaurants and cafes. I have done this myself with no hassle.
This is probably the ultimate solution to the problem of hosting people with different dietary requirements, so it fits in well with recent Awkward discussion!
I have long brown hair and glasses. I will bring my plush Cthulhu to use as a table marker. It looks like this: http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/7cb0/
My email address is kate DOT towner AT gmail DOT com, and we have a Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/549571375087294/
I can’t say exactly where I will be on the first floor – I’ll try to bag a sofa, or failing that a couple of tables. Just wander around until you find me and Cthulhu…
