geekpub December Social

  • This location is shown only to members

Join in with the finest geeks in town for the last monthly geekpub Social in 2013, held at the Google Campus Cafe, exclusively ours for the evening.

The tried and tested formula: "geeks + pints = tech, games & gadget chat" prevails, plus a fine selection of chip tunes to round out the geekdom experience.

Just like last year, yes, even this event is free. :)

Spaces are limited to 100 due to fire regulation/licensing. RSVP 'Yes' soon to avoid disappointment and please update your status if your plans change to afford other members a chance to join. 

Update: More good news everyone! The wonderful people at coANDco UK confirmed that they'll sponsor us again. We will have some complimentary catering thanks to them. Please try to line your stomachs a little ahead of arrival though so there's enough for everyone at the event. [assorted food, while supplies last]

Good news everyone! Thanks to a donation by an entity wishing to remain unnamed, we will have a complimentary welcome drink for everyone! [1 beer, wine or soft drink].

Check out the pics from last year's December Social at the Google Campus Cafe. Click here for walking directions from Old Street, the closest tube station.

For our new members: geekpub is an incredibly friendly and open group, we truly have the finest geeks of London in our community. The whole venue is ours for the evening so we can all feel comfy. There are plenty of our regulars and veterans around too. If you haven't had a chance to join one of our meetups yet, this is a great one to join. Come out, come out, wherever you are. =)

  • Todd C.

    Wasn't sure where to put this but just wanted to let the group know that myself and 2 other new comers (the November social was all our first geekpub event), enjoyed ourselves so much and got along so well that we recorded a podcast episode just 2 weeks after meeting. I feel like that's a pretty good success story for this meetup.

    I guess I just want to say: Thanks geekpub!

    (For anyone interested the episode in question is here: http://playblastpodcast.com/201...­)

    Happy to move this post somewhere more appropriate if need be :)
