at "The Scoop"
SUGGESTED DATE:July 31st (Sunday)
as Fridays and Saturdays are usually date night
for those of us who are single
(also lots of competing events and social plans tend to land on
Fridays and Saturdays,
and notice that a LOT of "meetup" groups do there thing on Thursdays
*so as it is an early evening thing suggest SUNDAY JULY 31th
that way folk still have the afternoon to do as they like
[early enough in the evening if folks want to(as a group)
want to find a pub etc that could be possibility)
or head home after for early night after full day out]
NOTE this is the same day as the
"Steampunk Rocks" event at the Kew Bridge Steam Museumhttp://kbsm.org/http://steampunk.kbsm.org/
so for folks who want to make a steampunk day of it they can
(note if you have plans for Sunday during the day and want to attend the free theatre thing the "Steampunk Rocks" event is also on the Saturday)
though would be nice to aim for the Sunday
(also after day at the "Steampunk Rocks" thing
a picnic by the water might be nice)http://www.morelondon.co.uk/events_details.asp?ID=106
