It’s the one-year anniversary meetup in London this week. From organizer Kate:
December London meetup is our one year anniversary!
Southbank Centre, SE1 8XX near Waterloo station, 11am onwards on the 7th of December
Since it’s Christmas and also our first birthday, time to bring and share food if you’re up for that. Anything you like, from your best GBBO showstopping House of Bees to a packet of crisps from the corner shop. But please bring a full ingredients list so that anyone with food restrictions or allergies can avoid foods which don’t work for them.
Please let me know if you have other icebreaker ideas for the future. I have ideas for January and February, but can always use more.
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. There is a farmers’ market outside with loads of different food options, which can fit most food requirements, or you can also bring a packed lunch.
Our regular meeting area has been getting a bit noisy, so we’re experimenting with shifting up a couple of floors. Meet on the fourth floor, outside the Blue Bar (go up in the JCB lift, lift 7, which is bright yellow and quite entertaining). This is the equivalent place horizontally to our normal location, 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.
