pub meet anyone?

I thought as a first meet up and good way for people to meet a visit to the pub would be a good idea. Any takers?

    Ok, so as discussed with a group at meeting at Thirsty Meeples (during hilarious game of Cards Against Humanity), we've set up a Facebook group for Oxford Geeks, as it would be easier to keep in touch, arrange events etc. So, if you're still happy to keep in touch with rest of geeks here, join FB group. We're planning on some regular events, cinema trips etc. Should be fun! Link to group blow, or just search for Oxford Geeks on FB. See you there!

    Very enjoyable evening. Nice to meet you all and hope we can do it again sometime!

    How about another attempt at some geekery? :> Common, let's not let this group die out :))
    Maybe board games at Thirsty Meeples? Or just drinks?

      Thanks for a good night guys, had fun!

    Hello everyone, long time no meet up. Was just wondering if anybody wanted to get together for a drink this Friday?

    June 16, 2014

    • Bernard

      So we're not doing anything then? I'm still up for some drinks :)

      June 19, 2014

    • Lisa

      I think it is only us two that are interested, shall we postpone for another night, when others are free?

      June 19, 2014

  • Lisa

    I am still relatively new to Oxford, has anyone got any ideas for a good place to meet on Friday?

    April 7, 2014

    • Roberto

      Not my kind of place, but see you at 6:00? I've seen there they have quiz nights (again not for me) but usually is quiet at that time.

      I've got something on Friday, but the time isn't set yet. So I may pop in before or after, depending on how things go. :)

    Since I don't receive notifications on new comments, I've missed yet another meetup :( How about instead of organizing 3rd event on the thread of 1st one, set up another, separate event for this group?

    April 7, 2014

    • Roberto

      Well, in my opinion this site is a little messy for all this. In other meetup groups we finally agreed to create a Facebook group, private, but it's up to you.

      April 7, 2014

    • Roberto

      I sent a suggestion to the organizer about you that like to play games, but no answer. It's a big place in Gloucester Green, open until late. http://www.thirstymee...­

    Thanks to Elizabeth for arranging tonight. The film was actually fairly decent, if only because of an inspired Shailene Woodley, who channeled her inner Katniss very effectively. The spoiler-free problems were: lack of context (How/why did any of the world come into being, beyond one line in the script? What are the actual stakes here?), completely absence of blood or any lingering on aftermath meant deaths had precisely zero impact, and some very clumsy scripting ("I'm DIVERGENT!" she says, triumphantly, almost looking to the camera). Fix that, and I'd say you have the bones of a good Hunger Games competitor. We'll see how the sequels shape up :)

    1 · April 6, 2014

    • Roberto

      I'm afraid to say it was a fairly decent movie... for teenagers, not Young Adults! I'm confused about this but I think a teenager is until 18 years old... And I don't think nobody older would like the movie... Anyway good to movie to learn to respect the "divergents".

      April 7, 2014

    • Roberto

      (I see now I was wrong).

      April 7, 2014

  • Roberto

    I'll be there, Elizabeth. It might be something interesting even in that movie (:P). But you have no face and me either, so please be specific about the meeting point.

    April 6, 2014

    • Paul

      Jack, no problem at all. I know how hard it can be tough to come to new groups when you don't know anyone. You'll be fine next time, I'm sure. If you need anything, please do let me know :)

      A new brain not prone to freaking out? :P Seriously though, it has been many years since that happened. Not sure what set it off now.

    I haven't been able to make it this evening. But I should be ok for Friday.

    Hi, I can't make it tonight, got some stuff to sort out. I'll be interested in a drink next Friday though!

    April 6, 2014

  • Lisa

    I cant make it tonight, I have an assignment I need to get finished but does anyone fancy drinks on Friday?

    April 6, 2014

  • Elizabeth

    Just a reminder that some of us are going to see Divergent at 7:30 tonight at the Odeon on George Street in central Oxford! Anyone is welcome to join -- just meet us outside the theater at 7:20!

    1 · April 6, 2014

  • Elizabeth

    Would anybody be interested in seeing the film Divergent this weekend (Sunday afternoon or evening would be ideal, but I'm flexible)? It's sci-fi/dystopia, and is based on a book series written by my friend Veronica Roth (my one very indirect claim to fame!). Let me know!

    I could do Saturday evening, Saturday day, or Sunday evening.

  • Nicole

    A good evening, with some interesting, friendly people. I'd be up for a meal or a film night out with you lot :)

    March 29, 2014

    • Paul

      Should we be looking out for a Potter-equivalent of your Stormtrooper dress next time, then?

      Sounds good Lisa. Always good to know I'm not alone! My regularly changing hair colour is a little nod to tonks x

    Nice to meet you all. A very enjoyable evening and it would be good to do it again (although I can't make today!).

      You have a fantastic taste, David. Your site is great, I'm giving it a look now... (Is this spam?).

    That was interesting... no, I mean fun!

    Some people suggested that they'd be up for meeting up again tonight. I'll be at the Chequers from about 7.30pm, so come join me there if you like!

    March 29, 2014

    • Lisa

      Busy, busy this evening, next time!

      March 29, 2014

      Busy tonight, but up for next time as well!

    Good to meet such an interesting bunch of people. Looking forward to next time.

    March 29, 2014

    • Roberto

      I agree, a kind of strange interesting bunch, I might say... Well, the offer is in the air, a projector and a place to see very deep sociological and political futuristic movies, nothing funny, just as the Congress...XD! Because for playing D&D no idea, sorry... ;)

      March 29, 2014

    • Roberto

      (Though I know people that play, I'll let them know).

    Will other people still be going? I am still up for meeting if others are?

      the list on the right says 17 people are coming

      March 28, 2014

  • Jamie

    Hey guys just a quick update in a cruel twist of fate I seem to have contracted the plague so will have to miss tonight which as the organiser isn't good but I hope you all have a good time! Aim for the top floor of chequers all of us geeks tend to stand out so I'm sure you will all find each other. I was hoping this could turn into a semi regular event so some feed back and thoughts on how it goes and what you think would be helpful. Sorry again and please somebody if not everyone have a pint for me!

    March 28, 2014

    Can't make tonight but look forward to next time, Rich.

    Hi I think to be on the safe side I will create some kind of sign to identify the table might be easiest

      Might I suggest picking a spot upstairs? There's a bit more space there (I'm in Chequers every Wednesday to play cards so I know it well)

      March 27, 2014

  • Jamie

    Hello just want to say thanks for joining and I'm looking forward to meeting those of you coming out tomorrow as I say I will make some kind of sign to point us out unless anybody has a better idea? Catch you tomorrow!

    March 27, 2014

    • Lisa

      I'll wear my stormtrooper dress, then you'll know who I am.

    I'll be wearing my chainmail, so I should be easy enough to spot! :o)

    March 27, 2014

  • Paul

    I have other plans, but will endeavor to pop in for the first hour. Taking Farrukh's lead, I'll wear one of these so others can identify:

    It can be an amazing group, there's lot of interesting ideas and fun in SF. I'm in tonight.

    March 27, 2014

  • Farrukh A.

    I will wear a t-shirt with pictures of a lot of squash players on it-so others can identify (I am not the organizer though-so maybe Jamie has a better idea)

    March 27, 2014

  • Elizabeth

    A pub meet sounds like fun -- but as Farrukh says, how will we recognize each other? I will try to come if I can get enough work done that day!

    March 27, 2014

  • Farrukh A.

    How will we recognize each other ? :)
