Update: We have a booking at Camino Kings Cross for 5PM. It will be a very casual standing-room setup, with space for ~30 people. Since it seems like people will be arriving and departing at different times, hopefully that’s enough room. Setup will be order at the bar, pay as you go or run your own tab if desired, etc.
James will be there by 5, I will be there as soon as I drop my bags at my hotel. We both look like our pictures, except I have pinkish hair right now.
See you tomorrow!
I’ll be in London next weekend for Frequent Traveler University, and as James lives there now the timing was perfect for me to arrive a day early so we could meet face-to-face.
As we were making Thursday dinner plans, we thought it would be nice to grab a drink beforehand, which then evolved into seeing who else would like to discuss miles and points over a beverage, so here we are.
This is very last-minute, and is going to be very casual, so if you are interested in meeting up near King’s Cross on Thursday evening between 5ish and 7ish, please comment below (using a valid email address).
Along those lines, if you’re familiar with a place that could comfortably accommodate a decent-sized group without requiring deposits, minimums, a single tab, or other formal arrangements, please share! We do have a cocktail bar in mind, but the viability of that space depends on how many people might be joining.
This is not where we’re going, this is in Melbourne, and probably wouldn’t be ideal for this situation, but I think you get the idea
We mainly want to keep this as informal as possible, especially since we’re doing this on short notice and I’ll have just flown in, but also because that makes for better conversations. Once we know how many people to expect we can choose a spot, and I’ll update the post and send out an email.
Also, if you’ll be in London next weekend and would like to attend FTU, tickets are still available for £149 using code UKFTU100. I’ll be speaking about aspirational travel, award booking adventures, participating in an AMA, and joining a general panel, and there are other great sessions as well.
And if neither works out, hopefully we’ll catch you next time!
