Pencil can now be inked in. So what's the plan? Shall I search the green spaces or the pub tables?

Russell Square from 6pm onwards. I'll bring my picnic blanket, but I might arrive a bit later, depending on when I get off work.

Tomorrow's meant to be a very sunny day, so I guess we'll be in the park.

 

I'll get there about 6 and will sit on the grass between the central fountain and the cafe. Will pm my phone number to anyone who's expressed an interest today or tomorrow (edit - sent, let me know if I missed you), and will try to bring some identifying item of clothing (ooh, excuse to wear my bright lime-green T-shirt everyone hates...?) or something. Will let you know what that is when I've determined tomorrow's wardrobe. 

 

Bring whatever you want to eat and drink. There's a Tesco Express and a Pret opposite Russell Square tube, Waitrose at the Brunswick Center, Sainsburies on Southampton Row as well as loads of other places.

If you see Google Maps, I'll be somewhere close to that location marker.

Scorchio! Bring spare sun hats, realmayo!

 

We have me, realmayo, geraldc and Yang Chuanzang confirmed, which is four. We need one more attendee to show those Beijing boasters where the real action is. I'll buy ice cream!

Oh, and all my distinctive items of clothing were in the wash, so I'm in a bland short-sleeved blue shirt. Dark hair, glasses.

I'm here! About halfway between fountain and cafe, as this is where the sun was. Waitrose bag full of snacks, come help me eat 'em.

Very enjoyable evening. Shame none of the maybes made it, but the four of us hung out on the grass in Russell Square until they kicked us out at 10pm. I think we could get more people along if more notice was given, but as I'm heading north to make my contribution to the founding of the People's Republic of Scotland, we'll need someone else to take the lead. However I'm sure one of last night's attendees will step forward any... minute... now

 

I did intend to take a photo or two, but it got dark.

Sneaky ninjas timing visits to coincide with when various admin staff will be in town.

@renzhe I expect a full report for how Chinese restaurants in Scotland compare with Melbourne.

I'm pleased to announce that Renzhe and myself were able to have a supplementary London (North) brunch meet-up here in Edinburgh a couple of weeks ago while he was passing through, and very good fun it was too. Adding this to the London (Central) attendance figures this gives us a total attendance figure across the London (Total) meet-up of 7 (not counting myself twice, as that would be cheating, but including girlfriends)

 

Sorry Beijing, but you lost.
