    Hey everyone!

    As some people on here may know, I'm heading off to the UK in a couple of days. I will be heading up north for several days before heading back to London.

    So i was thinking.... A proper Whitechapel London meetup? the last time i organsied this, only Denari turned up! But the man was the perfect gent and we had a great time discussing all sorts of weird shit. Oh, and comics as well.

    The 2 ideal nights for this to happen will be the 27th or 28th July (Wed/Thurs). My personal preference is for Thursday but i can make Wednesday.

    As for the meeting place, well it has to be the Ten Bells hasn't it? That is, unless someone has a more interesting suggestion. Right now i am open to anything!

    So come on Peeps, let's make this a good meet up. We can arm wrestling and everything!

    Cheers

    Bob

    Well, it would be rude not to, eh?

    I've put both dates in the calendar.

    I've literally got shirt buttons to rub together at the moment (fucking recession) but I'll come and say 'Hi' in meatspace.

    First comment I've made on here in ages! You're that much of a lure, Mr. Bob. I'm working those nights but my place of work is near Whitechapel, so provided I can organise myself properly, I can pop in for a bit before heading in. I'll keep an eye on this thread, and bug you on Twittar too.

    I'm going to be in London from the 2nd to the 8th of august. I fear I'll miss the meet-up, but if it was any later I would be wholly up for it.

    Also Bob, are you north for the Tallships? We could have a Shetland Meet-up. I do wonder if there are any others.

    That's EXACTLY what i´m going there for!

    Alas i won't be able to see the Levellers or Bjorn Again (!), but it'd be cool to meet up. Thule?

    God-damn it.

    I'm in Scotland then.

    You guys have a time. I expect to see large parts of the town painted red when I return.

    I'll try and make it if I can... caveat being it'll be two days before I go on holiday and I'm drowning at work, but if I've got an ounce of mental energy left I'll pop in

    "Working sixty hours a week puts a real drain on your social life."

    If a date is settled, i can attempt to reach London via storing mental energy and lucking an evening off... But at the moment, a personal appearance is rather unlikley

    Bah, just realised it's my 5th anniversary on the 28th.

    Perhaps I should claim to be taking the missus out for a treat in London, and instead just happen to 'bump' into you guys by accident...

    You know, everyone in Toronto would KILL to drink with IBob. He's our fucking hero.

    You Londoners better show him a good time. He's like a fucking god across the pond, I swear.

    Ok as my lovely missus is coming back from Spain on Wednesday and it would be churlish to not be there when she comes back, Wednesday is a bit of a no go...

    So the day is going to be THURSDAY 28TH JULY! Mark your calenders!

    Jon, Steve - If you fancy meeting a little earlier so you can go to work/take the wife out for the anniversary, we can organise that.

    Now that the Date is sorted, all that we now need to finalise is the time and place. More details to folow....

    ok that was a fun weekend!...

    Had a great time in Shetland and got rather mashed for most of it. Weather has been awful, but it was all made up for it be having a little whitechapel meet with mr Doc Ocassi! the man is a total gent and we have to meet up again soon!

    I will be back in London on Tuesday, so everyone remember that if you are in London at all on Thursday evening, then get to the Ten Bells pub for 7.30pm for a decent knees up.

    I usually drink up the road, but, like the man says, It just would be the place to be. I will be there, considering it's in jogging distance from my abode, it'd be just rude not to. I just have to see if I can avoid my coat getting chewed up by the street drinkers dog on the way home this time.
  4.  (10054.15)
    Will do my best to pop in for a couple, keeping everything crossed that I can make it this time.

    @Mr.Hex: Not only the torontonites but the mudskippers would also like drinks with Bob. Though I'll save the blood sacrifice's and whiskey for our Space daddy/internet Jesus. That and y'know no bloodrites on the first boozening.

    We're seriously considering organizing the much joked about bobcon 2012 on icelandia.*

    *wink wink nudge nudge

    To all of you that are shy: It's a whitechapel drink-up if you don't like it*, just fade out of the pub. No-one will mind unless you take the booze. :P

    *feel uncomfortable

    I'm all over this like a metaphor I haven't really thought through.

    See you at 7:30 you saucy bitches.

    Due to having an awesome better-half (and the day off work for doing anniversary-type-activities), I should be able to get there after all!
