London Readers Meet-Up Tonight at 8PM for Some Drinks!

October 13, 2009

Nellie Dean

I'm currently in London at the moment for a brief visit surrounding Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr. Fox. I'll be heading to the Roald Dahl estate later today for a tour and visit and also talking with Wes Anderson, Bill Murray, and Jason Schwartzman. You'll be hearing plenty more about that side of my visit to London soon enough, but if you're a London-based reader of and want to catch up for a few drinks tonight, Peter from SlashFilm and I are hosting a meet-up at the Nellie Dean pub (seen in the photo above) tonight, Tuesday, October 13th at 20:00 (8:00PM). Hopefully I'll get to meet a few of you tonight, so stop by later!

Nellie Dean is located at 89 Dean St., Soho, London (Google Maps). We'll be there starting at 8PM for a few hours, most likely. We'd love to meet you no matter who you are, readers young and old, movie fans or not (although I hope you are a fan of movies at least!). You can follow my Twitter for more updates (if there is a location change or otherwise). I'm only in town until Thursday morning for a short visit, but I haven't been to London in a long time and I'm already loving it (I wish I could stay longer). And as for the Fantastic Mr. Fox stuff, expect some great coverage on that coming up soon as well. See you at Nellie Dean tonight I hope!

My favourite Soho boozer! I can be found at the bar most nights (identifiable by a somewhat aged brown Filson satchel). Come tap me on the shoulder if your there a little early. I can't stay as I have front row centre to see Spiritualized tonight.. Enjoy! Jamie
