North London Coffee Posse - December 2011, Hampstead, London

3 December 2011: North London Coffee Posse - December 2011

Come along and meet new people, chat with old friends and just chill. We'll be at Kenwood House in the afternoon until 15:00 before moving on to the Holly Bush pub by 16:30.

OUTeverywhere is not just an online community where everything happens in pixels. You can also get OUT there and meet other OUTers and our coffee posse is the ideal way to do so. The North London Coffee Posse is normally held on the first or second Saturday of the month.

The first half of the event is the "coffee" part at Kenwood House where we'll chill until 15:00.

KENWOOD HOUSE REFURBISHMENT: Kenwood House is to be refurbished over the next year so parts of the house and grounds will be closed off. Apparently the Brew House and Old Kitchen will remain open throughout except possibly for January (TBC).

If the weather is good we'll be round the back of Kenwood House in the café garden, sitting near the colonnade walkway or if that is closed off then to the right of the Brew House. Please be aware that we will try to be in the Old Kitchen if we decide to sit inside; this is through the same entrance as the disabled toilet (which looks like this when there's no building works: We won't be sitting in the other seating area in the Brew House café unless the Old Kitchen is full or closed for a function.

The Brew House serves hot and cold food and drinks with china crockery. There is also a smaller café to the left, the Steward's Room, which is slightly cheaper and serves a smaller choice of soup, sandwiches, cakes, drinks and ice cream.

When we're ready to move on, we normally walk across Hampstead Heath which takes about half an hour, but we might stop for a drink on the way. An alternative is to take the 210 bus to Jack Straw's Castle then the 268 to Hampstead High Street.

We will make our way to the Holly Bush by 16:00 for the second half of the event with muchos alcohol. The Holly Bush serves food so we can have supper there. We'll stay there until at least 18:30 when some of us will go to the OUT London Christmas Party (quickfind:433786 which starts at 19:00).

Those going to the party can take the 46 bus which goes from Hampstead to Chancery Lane.
