Kate has sent the news about the monthly London gathering. New Yorkers, see the P.S.
May London meetup as follows:
Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, SE1 8XX near Waterloo station, 16th May, 11am onwards.
Colouring in again! Please bring stuff to colour, paper, pencils, pens, anything like that. Or just come & chat.
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).
Here is the internal map of the Royal Festival Hall: http://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/sites/default/files/documents/RFH_map.pdf
I will have my Cthulhu with me, which looks like this: http://forbiddenplanet.com/3950-cthulhu-baby-plush/ One time I forgot it but I will do my best this time, however if I forget again I will put up a sign. I have long brown hair and glasses.
The venue is accessible via a lift, and has accessible toilets. Waterloo tube station has step free access on the Jubilee line but not on the Northern line.
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.

(June meetup will be on the 20th.)
PS: I am going to be in NYC from the 22nd to the 31st of May and I would love to meet up with people. If you’re interested please email me, or I’ve started a thread on the forums.
Enjoy the day!
