ProZ.com powwow: London Stammtisch

January 27, 2007, 3:00 pm
United KingdomLondon, South BankIn personEnglish
Chill out and enjoy each other's company in London's South Bank!


After meeting fairly regularly with other Prozians in London at different venues and after the last fun Christmas Powwow Katharina and I decided to create a regular 'London Stammtisch' on the last Saturday of each month.

The word 'Stammtisch' is German and pertains to a table in a restaurant or pub reserved for regulars. Our colleague Rebekka Gross, co-organizer of the recent Edinburgh Regional ProZ Conference, is doing a similar thing in Edinburgh.

We wanted to hold it somewhere on South Bank because this is easily accessible by train, tube and / or bus. We have not decided on a nice and friendly pub and are greatful for any suggestions.

Venue Jan 12, 2007

Hi!
Thanks for all the suggestions. I intend to visit London in the next couple of days and check out these locations and some other ones I had in mind.
I'd like to keep it close to Waterloo Station though as it is just so convenient.
Anyway, hope you all had a great Christmas Season and good a good start into the New Year. See you all soon!

Hello! Jan 21, 2007

Hi everybody!
I am very happy to meet you all in a week's time and thank you very much for registering!
Katharina and I had a walk along the Thames on London's South Bank today to find an appropriate venue for all.
There are several possibilities:
1. The Old Thameside Inn, near London Bridge station.
2. The Horniman
3. The Slug & Lettuce in Wardour Street (near Charing Cross)
and one more pub, which has to be phoned.

As most managers were not there and it was very hard to get any reservation at all for a large group of people on a Saturday afternoon I will have to phone these venues up tomorrow and then in the evening specify the location.
I very much look forward to meeting you all and to a chilled out afternoon with fun and good conversations!
See you all soon!

Dear Anna, Jan 22, 2007

I think you mean the Thameside Inn, which is just opposite the Golden Hinde. It is a good venue, which leaves us enough space and also has a restaurant. It is on two levels. Booking just has to be confirmed. We also tried The Anchor a few meters further up but unfortunately the do not reserve... And with a turn out like this Powwow we just wouldn't want to risk having no space...
Venue will be finalised tonight!

@ Robert Jan 24, 2007

Thank you very much for the suggestions! We litterally walked along the Thames last Sunday for an hour asking each and every larger Pub for reservations but the combination of Saturday + Thames just made it impossible to book (without meal). And as the group was getting so large we did not want to risk not having enough room. We will definitely take into account any suggestions - as the word 'Stammtisch' implies, it would be a table reserved for regulars...
Thanks again!
Arianna

For Anna- ID Verification Jan 24, 2007

The ID verification is not for Powwow purposes; it is just that Powwows offer an opportunity for verification. This is a ProZ.com option (confirmed by a tick against your name on the site) to show colleagues and potential clients that you are who you claim to be, since a fair number of members still operate under pseudonyms, dual (or more) identities and probably false ones too. Paying ProZ.com by credit card is another way of doing it, whether for membership etc. or specifically for the purpo... See more

Not certain I can attend yet but will do my best.

Verifying IDs Jan 24, 2007

ID's can only be verified upon presentation of a identity document displaying your photograph and confirming your personal details; I also need to register your Proz-Number.

See you soon,

Constanze

IDs? Jan 25, 2007

I still do not understand - why do we need this? We've been told to bring our friends - do they have to bring IDs, too?
