[uk] Manchester meet

Postby SquareRootofBlue » Sat Oct 10, 2009 5:52 pm UTC

I live near Manchester and wondered if anyone would be interested in a meet any time this week (I've got all this week off work). For anyone who's not familiar with it there's a lot of variety and a lot to do, currently all the universities have not long started back and the student quarter's always a good place to socialise. I suggest Jabez Clegg http://www.jabezclegg.co.uk/ on Oxford Rd to meet but I'm open to other ideas.

I live right by Manchester as well, didn't know we had xkcd fans here.

I've got Monday off, suggestion for a possible lunch or dinner, maybe KC's?

Manchester is large enough to have a respectably largish geek community and some are going to be XKCD fans. The ones who aren't are just waiting to be converted :D . Monday may be a little short notice for word to get around other XKCDers who may want to join us but I'm open to suggestions. Also, what's KC's?

I see the "UK" qualifier has been added, which means I'm no longer up for a meet-up.

Wait, you weren't previously aware of there being fans of xkcd in manchester, England? Because I'm fairly sure we made our own thread. Me, sleepy and LE4d all used to meet up there, until we developed social lives.

Well, until sleepy kept having concerts to play or practice for. But that other thread was all "lets hang out with Anonymous for a while", let's take over this thread.
I'll be able to get into mancschester probably from about bonfire night onwards

Technically, I can get there every Sunday, but I'm silly poor. So it'll have to be osmething more worthwhile than eating KFC with LE4d (but also include eating KFC with LE4d).

I'm in Manchester this week, so if anyone fancies meeting up tomorrow or Thursday night for a beer or two, let me know! Or failing that, just recommend somewhere to go for an evening meal on company expense 8)

Whoops, only just saw this now, not that I'd have been able to make an appearance, but still, hope you had a nice time.
