Talking to Strangers #17

Hi all,

The time has come to schedule Talking to Strangers #17, on Wednesday 29th May at 7pm, and this time we're heading to the Boot and Flogger, a characterful wine bar near London Bridge opened by legendary wine sellers Davy’s in 1964.

If you haven't been, it's an atmospheric and comfortable venue with plenty of charm, and a great venue for relaxed conversation with new people, even on an ordinary night.

As usual, we'll have out own room, and the evening will be based around creating interesting conversations with new people, discussing some thought provoking topics. There is a small charge of £4 and the event is run in conjunction with Rebecca and the fine team from https://www.thinkingbob.co.uk/.

Look forward to seeing you then.

With best wishes,

Tom

    I am sure someone took a photo of me in it in this meetup, would you mind sharing the photo mate? Cheers.

    It could not hear what people were saying. Too many people in a confined space

    • Kin-King T.

      yeah I agree, it was like a challenge to hear people speak and speak loud so people can hear.

      Sorry about this...we do try to find suitable venues but it's a real struggle.

    I enjoyed the meetup a lot, but it was difficult to hear people clearly and sometimes I was struggling to follow the conversation. I use a hearing aid (which is not much use in a very noisy environment) so I can't say that I'm typical. But I would certainly appreciate a less confined and resonant environment.

      Thanks for your feedback Greg. We really do try but it's so hard to get suitable venues in central locations on weeknights. Will keep searching!

    @ Joanne and Kin-King... well... probably it would have been better to listen to the person in front of you... instead of what others in the room were saying ;-)

      Hi... I was kind of pulling your leg... I was most of the time outside so didn't have the same problem... Noticed it was really busy towards the end... But that is why it was such a nice evening, isn't it?

      May 31, 2013

    • Massimo

      plus I loved the fact that it was possible to sit down... All in all, despite the few draw backs, I find it good ;-)
