    I think I was the negogiants, Tun part. Though was bookcrossing before via a friends page. When I first came back (November was it? ) there were lots familiar faces but its nice to meet new people too.

    Initially Bookfrogster and I set up the meetings in The Elephant House as it pretty central, the tables big, the atmosphere welcoming, and the grub - as it still is - pretty yummy. I can’t recall how long we continued to meet there till we turned up one autumn I think it was to find the Elephant House had begun to close around 7ish, so that night and maybe for a couple of others we re-convened across the road at Lucano’s. Then we re-established at Negotiants (possibly renamed now?) Potterrow, nr Bristo Squ, then off to the Tun, (now Hemma) then Biblos till now again we are on Holyrood Road in Hemma, Ta Da! I don’t recall ever having met at the Filmhouse, but that’s not to say it didn’t happen, I’ve not been to every single Meet-Up.

    will now come to you straight away- are you going to be upstairs?

    • Hannah

      Yes - we usually are at a table upstairs but I cannot guarantee this always so there's a slight chance that we may be on the ground floor.
