Kings Cross Mapping Party

Posted by Harry Wood on 19 June 2009 in English (English)

The Kings Cross mapping evening was another big one. ~15 people there! rivalled only by last year's Euston Rocket meet-ups. It seems that northern side of central London attracts a lot of people. I picked it rather hastily, along with the pub choice, because the date crept up on me this time around. "The Waiting Room" pub is part of a Premier Inn (ultra-modern and not in a good way). But actually this worked out nicely because with so many people, we would have struggled to fit into one of the more stylish pubs in the area. In this pub we had loads of space. A massive circular table for the knights to sit around, whilst the others (kings and queens?) sat on sofas alongside.

Speaking of more stylish pubs, I had fun exploring slice 2 on the cake, particularly as I found three missing pubs (Three!) and a couple of missing roads

Good to chat with some new people. alex4d was brimming with ideas and new tube map designs. Nick Black lives nearby, but more importantly he was actually in this country for once. Steve Chiltern was back from his adventures mapping paradise (the subject of his SOTM talk). ...loads of people!

The next meet-up will be in Bow on Tuesday 30th June. Details and cake diagram already on the wiki page (thanks to some help from Ollie)

Location: Regent Quarter, King's Cross, London Borough of Islington, London, Greater London, England, United Kingdom
