Socrates 9 confirmed for 18 May 2011

Socrates London 9 logoApologies for the short notice but we’re delighted to say we’ve managed to crowbar in our 9th Socrates Football Bloggers Meet-Up for Wednesday 18 May. Festivities start at 7pm, but please note – there’s a new venue!

Regular attendees will know that our previous events have been held at the Vauxhall outpost of our generous sponsors Picklive, but this time we’re asking you to meet at Picklive’s other headquarters in Clerkenwell, London.

The exact address is as follows:

Location map for Socrates London 92nd floor, White Bear Yard, 144a Clerkenwell Road, London, EC1R 5DF. (Click here to see a Google Map of the area.)

As ever, Picklive will be not only giving us warmth and shelter for the night but also drinks and chicken balti pies, the like of which you won’t find anywhere else. In addition to this, you’ll also get the chance to watch the Europa League Final between Braga and Porto in the company of your fellow football enthusiasts.

It therefore just leaves us to say that if you’re a football blogger, podcaster or writer and you’d like to join us between 7pm and 10.30pm on May 18th, please get in touch with us at socrates [at] the-onion-bag [dot] com or send us a tweet to @SocratesMeetUp to let us know you’ll be coming along. We look forward to seeing you there.

Socrates on Twitter and Picklive Footie

Socrates has painfully dragged itself in 2008 by finally setting up it’s own Twitter ID. You can now follow the doings of the Socrates London Bloggers Meet Up on @SocratesMeetUp.

There we will keep you abreast of the latest developments with any and all the bloggers who have beaten a path to Socrates door. This includes our generous sponsor Football3s who have now rebranded themselves as Picklive Footie.

If you’re new to this site and fancy joining us at the football bloggers networking event in London, then drop us a line through Twitter or if you think Social Media is evil, then email us at socrates[at]the-onion-bag[dot]com.
