(Finsbury) Shy Dinner Meetup at 'The Easton'

  • July 3, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hello, everyone!

I would like to begin hosting events again, so I felt this would be a nice way to start. :)


Event details: This is a regular dinner/social Meetup for people who may be shy, anxious, lonely, depressed etc. Whatever the label, we are all human and need social interaction!

I know how hard it can be actually turning up, so don't be too hard on yourself if you don't make it. However, do drop me a line if you can no longer attend, as there is a waiting list for this event. RSVPs close two hours prior to the start time of the Meetup.

Please ONLY RSVP if you are interested in purchasing food, as I have made dinner reservations. Otherwise, you can meet us in the pub AFTER the meal.

A large number of members in this group have suggested that it would be nice to vary the location for the casual dinner. As a result, I have decided to host the Meetup every other week or so, and ensure that we always go somewhere new. These Meet ups will also normally involve smaller groups.


However, Meetups involving 'The Tattershall Castle' are definitely still staying! Tim has agreed to continue hosting these. :) 

Location: 'The Easton': The address is 22 Easton Street, City of London, WC1X 0DS.

Useful links: 'The Easton' is a fabulous little gem and is very accommodating for reasonably large groups. Do take a look at their website and menus.

http://www.theeastonpub.co.uk/find-us/ http://journeyplanner.tfl.gov.uk/: I strongly advise planning your journey efficiently!

Contact: If you have any questions, suspect you may be late, experience problems or would simply like to get in touch, text me on[masked] 82019. :) Please refrain from calling unless completely necessarily. This is due to potential signal issues, noise levels and the simple fact that it's much easier to get your point across in writing. You may also find me on WhatsApp.

And finally: If you will be joining us for the first time, or you feel especially anxious, you are more than welcome to inform me. I will do everything I can to ensure that everyone feels comfortable.

You won't be judged and you don't have to impress anyone. Just turn up and see what happens!

I am looking forward to seeing everyone!


Lots of love, 
Jaz x

    Hi everyone, Jaz's phone is currently very nearly dead, five people have dropped out so if you're free just pop along! It's not too busy at the moment and very chilled out!

    Hi everyone. I'm just letting you know that staff called to confirm we are still coming. They mentioned that 'The Easton' is apparently going to be very busy tonight. Just thought I should warn you. That said, if anyone feels overwhelmed we can go outside for fresh air x

    Hi guys. This is a little random but I am already in the Kings Cross area because I had a job interview. I don't really want to travel all the way home just to come back in a few hours. So if anyone happens to be around or wants to meet early for a coffee, my number is 07453482019. Otherwise, see you all later :) x

    Hi, can I meet someone, group at a train/tube station please? I'm hopeless with directions, maps and only having a passing familiarity with left & right! :/

    • Jaz

      Alternatively, I can meet you outside of Farringdon or Angel tube stations. These are closer to the pub. Which station is most convenient for you? X

    • Imogen

      Hi Jaz, thank you! :) I could meet you at Farringdon or Angel. Whichever is easiest for you?

      Hi Jen! Hope to see you at a future Meetup. :) I can't attend the Sunday evening service. However, I am still up for going to yours on July 11th. Please let me know if there is anything specific you need in relation to that. See you soon x

    Hi all,

    I can't make it sorry...

    June 26, 2014

    • Jaz

      No worries, Silvia. I hope to see you at future events :) x

    Hi everyone. Due to the late notice, I have chosen to host this event at a pub called 'The Easton' in Kings Cross. I chose this because it's more central and I have hosted there once before, so I know it's decent. However, please note that I am awaiting confirmation. If bookings are full, I will simply postpone this Meetup. Lots of love x

    Hi all. I have an update about the venue. The staff got in touch and said that large groups will be given a set meal and that everyone must spend a minimum of £15 for two courses. As a result, I have decided to select an alternative venue. I want this to be a flexible meal that is affordable for everyone! If anyone could suggest a suitable alternative, please let me know. Otherwise, I will make sure a new venue is found by tomorrow. I may still go to 'Ariana II' another day, but it will involve a much smaller group. Lots of love x

      in Toptable you have some ideas about places able to handle big groups - http://www.opentable­....­ Belgo, Cafe Pacifico,Guanabara, Busaba Ethai (I love this one), etc

      June 29, 2014

    • Jaz

      Hi Silvia, thank you so much for your suggestions! I will bear them in mind for future Meetups :) x

      June 30, 2014

  • Jaz

    Hi everyone! The booking has been confirmed. :) See you all next week! X

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
