Silicon Drinkabout

Last friday I found myself on my way to London with not much to do. Ola was going to a conference, my dad was out of town and my sister is consumed with finishing her final bachelor in fashion collection.

So what to do?

Just before take off I wrote this Facebook status update “Kjenner jeg noen som er i London i helgen og vil leke med meg?”/”Do I know anyone who is in London this weekend who want to play with me?”.

A friend from uni, Navid, was quick to invite me along to Silicon Drinkabout and I was quick to say “I’ll see you there”.

I loved the concept of Silicon Drinkabout; get a lot of people who share the same interest into the same bar, buy them some drinks and let them mingle.

Finally a concept focused on letting people mingle, not having them sit through presentation after presentation with a little bit of mingling at the end.

I talked to alot of interesting people and drank some really good cocktails! The Shoreditch Grind, were we met, is a coffee bar by day and cocktail bar by night – my favorite type of bar.

So if you find yourself in London (or Copenhagen) on a Friday night, look up which bar Silicon Drinkabout is meeting at!

Or if you decide to bring the concept to Oslo, I’ll be there 😀
