Geek dinner. Monday January 23rd. The Crown and Anchor, Covent Garden. London. Will I see you there?
Wow Dave, Vancouver to London is a long journey to make for a single meal! ;)
Sounds like an interesting night. Only in this industry would an evening of hell bent geekiness sound like so much fun…and I love it!
Indeed it’s a long journey. It’s probably worth it - this time of the year, London is beautiful.
London, Ontario, innit?
I am so going to this! First I get to meet the founders of WordPress, and now Dave Shea. Can’t wait to meet you, Dave. :)
Will you see me there? Too right! I’m glad to see some cool meet up stuff going on for lonely geeks such as myself on this side of the pond! :)
I’ll have had a week to recover from my jet lag by then, so i won’t have an excuse for any nonsense i come out with. See you all then.
The modern art museum ModernTate near the Thames is worth a visit too!
Kel and I were just at the Crown & Anchor for lunch last Tuesday, the final day before flying home at the end of our vacation. Food was pretty good too.
So unfortunately, I won’t be at your geek dinner. I guess I’ll have to settle for lunch with you at Stubb’s in March ;-)
Got anything planned for Dayton, Ohio? I know a few good eateries. :)
“Vancouver to London is a long journey to make for a single meal!”
True. Good thing I’ll be there for the week surrounding the Carson Workshop then.
Glad to hear you vouching for the venue. Stubb’s in March? You’re on.
I’ll be there.
Anyone fancy the Tate Modern beforehand then?
Be there if I can be! Nice food there.
Modern Tate: 4th floor free entrance all year
Max Ernst, Dali, etc
“Anyone fancy the Tate Modern beforehand then?”
I won’t be able to make it to the Tate before because I’m working till 5:30pm but enjoy the tate and remember to make it over to the bar around 7pm. Enjoy!
I won’t be going to London any time soon, but I’ll be at WDW in San Francisco on the 30th. I believe I still owe you a beer…
Yeh, Dave, don’t be late like Molly! Unfortunately I can’t make this one, but I’ll be at the @media partés
Better warn ‘The rock and anchor’ to reserve some space :0
I’d be there myself if I had the time to nip over to London.
If you can, please also drop a comment on the geekdinner site. As it helps me count numbers for food and venue space - http://www.geekdinner.co.uk/2006/01/08/dave-shea/
See you all soon…
Hey Dave, I would join you … but I’ll be off on honeymoon the day after so you can see why that might present a problem for me :-) Will be catching up with you at SXSW as usual though (and @media)
Tate Modern has a beautiful cafe too.
C’est bien, n’est-ce pas!
This event is very important! Even an Italian guy, it will join. :-)
Who’s planning on going to the Tate Modern then?
I’ll get to Waterloo around 1 or 2 o clock; it’d be great to meet up with some people so I don’t have to go around it alone!
(there’s a post on my site to try and organise this meetup - http://www.fifteenoclock.com/2006/01/20/GeekDinner).
I shall see you at both (and SXSW, etc). Trying to get a bit of freelancing work in London next week too as its my only dry week in ages.
Was out with Dave last night, post-workshop (which I found massively helpful) - his first in London.
Pleased to report I left him after a trip to the kebab shop on New Kings Road very much “in the spirit”.
Told him he needs to catch the sunset from Waterloo bridge - here’s hoping he takes heed - it’s the best London has to offer!
Hi Dave- I’m Jen Dixon, the American girl that chatted with you after your presentation (that I unfortunately missed 98% of…). Love the work you do. Thank you for being such an approachable and lovely guy to chat with! Hope your travel back to Vancouver goes well and thanks for your time last evening. Next time I’ll catch your whole speech! :)
Visited Tate Modern too?
I will try to make it, but flying in a few hours before. thanks for organizing.
