    Funny story.
    My old boss comes from a really rich family and is a bit pompous (but a great, fun guy)
    Very cultured....

    Yet when we were in London he was requesting, practically demanding that they give him the coldest beers in the place 555

    NYC is on a grid......so it seems an orderly chaos.
    London is all zig zagged

    Oh supermarkets......altough I was only in a few, didn't seem as nice and orderly as they are in North America
    That's funny, I took my gfs aunt and uncle who are from inner Mongolia around London this summer. Walked past some pubs around Whitehall and was after work loads of people standing outside pubs drinking. He couldn't get his head around it, just standing on the street drinking, I tried explain but he was just yeah..but why? Had me stumped.

    Re Hotel, any in zone 1 is fine but pricey but guess can get good deals 9 months in advance.

    What is zone1.....what neighborhoods and will it be near where we would be hanging out.

    As I said at Le Meridien right by Leicester Square and then Holiday Inn about 15mins away in Regent Park.
    I loved the Holiday Inn location.....quiet with local pubs, a few blocks from that main road that Oxford tube is on.

    I still think the best best is to rent a 3/4 bedroom apartment that a bunch of us stay in.
    Cheaper too

    Central London transport options are pretty decent too so you don't necessarily need stay so close to where you drink. The holiday inn near Regent's Park sounds decent.

    Only just read this thread, but count me in for next years BM 'Party in London' - think I've only met Iltis in person before, so it'll be good to put names to faces and talk Thailand and have a few drinks with like minded BMs.

    Has anyone figured out hotels for this trip?

    And what areas should I look at for a hotel

    Me and Dupes were talking about renting an Airbnb, if people wanted to do that
