As ScienceBlogs prepares to receive its one millionth reader comment, ScienceBloggers are planning parties around the globe in celebration of the event. For our readers in London, Mo Costandi (Neurophilosophy), Ed Yong (Not Exactly Rocket Science), Selvakumar Ganesan (The Scientific Indian), Kara Contreary (Pure Pedantry), and I have planned a party on Saturday, 20 September. So, if you are in the area, please come and join us at the Calthorpe Arms, a pub near Russell Square and King’s Cross (see details here,) from 7:00 pm until close. ScienceBlogs has given us $100 per blogger ($500 total), and we’re going to use that money to provide food for everyone and then pay for drinks until the money runs out. So, if you want to drink for free, try to show up early!
It is by no means necessary to RSVP, but if you do think you’re coming, let me know by email or in the comments section to help us plan how much food we should order. Also, if you haven’t already, make sure you enter the Millionth Comment Contest for your chance to win a very sciencey trip for two to NYC.
Update: Ed Yong can no longer make it to the London party, but the rest of us will still be there.
