Lame idea?

    I've been toying with the idea of arranging a meet one day for all the Recording.org users in the London area. It would be good to put a face and personality to the people I've communicated with. Hopefully: Jules, Renie, me + anyone else in the area who is interested. What do you think, lame or a good idea?

    Sounds like a great idea. But since I only get over to London once a year in October, I'll have to miss out. Unless it takes you that long to put the deal together.
    Peace,

    I think it's a really good idea too!

    What kind of meeting have you in mind?

    I'm not sure what would work best for me I'll give it some thought...

    Nothing heavy, just a meet up in a nice quiet pub or wine bar one evening. Unless of course anyone has a better idea?

    Sounds fine! Within zone 1 or 2 and near public transport would be favorite!

    Greg, great idea! I would love to meet you and of course any member I could. I just bought a lottery ticket, if I win, I'm there. :D

    My wife pointed out some ridiculous deals on airfare to London recently. Something like $200 and they give you hotel room for free. If I had the time I'd be all over it.

    Could you ask your wife where she saw the fares at??

    Hi Jules, I used to know London like the back of my hand but I haven't lived there for ten years. Got any suggestions on suitable locations?

    Chris and Angelo, if either or both of you can make it over the pond, I'll make sure to arrange the meet around your visit!

  10. Can I come ? I've been more of a lurker than contributer lately, but It would be great to put faces to the names.

    BTW United are doing $89 each way from NYC and British Airways are doing $143 each way NYC to Paris with a London stopover and two free nights in London Hotel.

    Hi Peter,

    Of course you can come. It will be open to any RO members who wish to attend.

    I'm currently tapping some of my contacts in London to find somewhere quiet, where we don't have to shout, with nice comfy chairs and a bar! If you or anyone else has any suggestions?

    Greg
     
  12. There are a whole host of bars in Hoxton (where the city meets islington and clerkenwell) with comfy leather sofas that are quiet during the week or daytime. Friday and Saturday evenings are a different matter however, so it depends on time.

    Good ideas.
    Do you know of a similar vibe place that is nearer Farringdon or Angel tube than Old Street (which I find quite difficult to navigate out of!!!)?
    If not, Old Street will be fine!
    I agree that Sun Mon Tues Weds Thurs are the best options. Daytime is a poss too.

    Renie
    :)
     
  14. There are a couple of places in Farringdon that are o.k. early on in the week. Angel has loads of places but is pretty busy all week. Old street isn't that bad to navigate from so long as you know the exit numbers. Otherwise it can be easy to get lost (We've only lost a few customers into the depths of Hackney.) :D

    Hi Jules,

    I've let this idea slip a little as I've just had quite a big project come in.

    The Lord Stanley sounds like a good idea to me, what about everyone else?

    Providing we are in agreement on the location how about a date. Is the 24th Feb too soon? If so how about the 3rd of March, say 1:30pm. I can't do the 28th, I'll be tied to my chair in the studio that day.

    Let's get this rolling. :)

    The venue's fine, 3rd March 1.30pm would suit me better though!
    If that's OK with everyone that gives you a week to get over here Stedel..

    ;)

    Great!

    Jules, anyone else: How does 3rd March 1:30pm at the Lord Stanley, NW1 sound?

    Greg
     
  20. If i'm not working ( I have a provisional booking) , I'll be there.
