MMM London meetup - January 2018 weekday evening @ Southbank
« on: January 05, 2018, 02:40:39 PM »
Hi all, following on from our previous kinda disastrous attempts at arranging a date for a London meetup, I've set up hopefully the final one to get us a good weekday date.

Please vote appropriately, and add comments below.

Alas, I'm keen but definitely can't do any of these days - in Switzerland and Glasgow respectively.

We're interested as well and as of right now any of those dates would work for us.

I could potentially make one of these if nothing pops up before then. How late in the evening were you thinking of going?

Hi Kwill - was thinking an afterwork event, starting say at 6:30pm with people arriving whenever they can..... and staying until people start dropping off...

Well, that's going to be hard to pick a date with all 4 options even. Please someone come and tip the votes one way.

I'll make a decision on the date on Thursday, then agree meeting place with everyone.

I've just booked a holiday that has us away during the 15th and 16th so I've voted for a different date

I probably won't be able to make the 24th, so I've gone for the 16th. Might actually be able to make this one...

OK, I'm calling it - we're doing Tuesday the 16th. Meeting from 6:30pm, in the Royal Festival Hall at Southbank, in the Level 4 Blue bar.  Map here: (http://unlimited.southbankcentre.co.uk/assets/Access_map.pdf)


If you are coming, please post here, and I'll drop you a note with the meeting details and my number so we can find each other. It doesn't look like there is a big event at the Southbank that night, which is awesome.

Iím in. Really hoping my boss or boss of my boss arenít attendees as that would be awkward. Other than that Iím looking forward to it. Thanks again for organising.

I'd love an MMM boss - does your boss exhibit any of the signs? Bringing lunch to work? Excited about bargains? In-source chores?

No, no signs at all so itís extremely unlikely for me! But could you imagine turning up at the meetup and finding your boss was an attendee. ďOh hi. I do love my job and you as a boss I promise. I know Iím striving with every fibre to become financially independent but Iím very unlikely to RE whatever my journal says. I want to work for you until Iím well into my 80ísĒ

I'm in! Against all odds, the 16th is the only date that works for me - hurrah!

Never been to a level 4 blue bar, so should be an evening of firsts. Looking forward to it.

Despite not living near London I happen to be there on the 16th so would be great to meet some other like minded folks!

Thanks all for coming, a great first meetup with 100% attendance and meeting cool UK MMM'ers.

What do we want to do next? Once dry January finishes, options open up a bit...

Yep itís starting to get a bit lighter of an evening so we will definitely have more choices. I donít know London particularly well but am open minded to options.
