At the end of December I went for drinks with an eclectic and interesting group of people, and we had brilliant conversations – down the pub. It was nice that people felt very free to come and go as they pleased, and arrive and leave whenever they wanted to. So, I’m trialling “the pub” as the next venue for an evening of intelligent discussion, and we’ll see how that works out.
This is the session from 13th December, that was cancelled due to the impending Cold of Doom, rescheduled.
When: Tuesday 31st January 2012, from 7pm till whenever the last person leaves OR the pub shuts (at midnight, I believe).
I’m extending an invitation to whoever is interested, to come and have conversations about topics we don’t usually have the opportunity to discuss. I am running this as a bi-monthly occurrence. (The first one, in September, was about money.) The theme and topic of exploration this time is: DEATH. Just turn up with an open mind and willingness to share – and hear – opinions and points of view, and explore the topic to your heart’s content.
Location: Central Bar, 39 Windsor Place. Details here if you don’t know it. I will aim to secure a corner area – probably upstairs – when I arrive, but for finding-one-another-purposes save my number to your phone (07877 038 084).
The “rules” (which are really more of a “this is how we tend to do things around here”):
You are free to come and go. You are responsible for the use you make of your time, and for the quality of your interactions with the other participants. You can stay 5 minutes, or 5 hours. It’s up to you, and what conversations you get into, and how much you enjoy them. The people who are in the space are the right people; you will find what you seek.
One last thing: We will collate the main thoughts, outcomes, revelations, ideas, etc. to share with one another and with people who couldn’t take part. They will be published on this blog. I will bring notesheets and spare pens.
Cost: Oh yeah, I nearly forgot. It’s free. (Buy your own drink, though.)
See you there? Pass it on. x
