[German entry since I guess most of you coming will be capable of the German language. ;) If not, just send me an ask and I will give you a translation. For everybody else: Even if you’re not coming, spreading the word would be greatly appreciated!]
So, meine Lieben,
der 14. Juni rückt immer näher! Und damit auch unser kleines Fantreffen vorher. Da ich schon die ein oder andere Anfrage bekommen habe, hier nochmal eine kleine Zusammenfassung, wie das Ganze denn aussehen soll:
Wir treffen uns um 15:30 Uhr am Stachus, direkt vor dem Brunnen. Ich weiß, dass nicht alle schon um diese Uhrzeit kommen können (Arbeit, Uni etc.), aber wenn wir später anfangen, haben wir doch recht wenig Zeit. Keine Sorge, wir warten auch auf Nachzügler. ;)
Für die ganz ganz späten Nachzügler erklär ich unten noch etwas.
Dank justonelasttrick habe ich auch schon unsere ‘Believe in Sherlock’ Buchstaben, das heißt, wir können auf jeden Fall Photos machen. (Bringt eure Kameras mit, je mehr desto besser~)
Für diejenigen, die direkt von der Arbeit oder Uni kommen, findet sich in der Innenstadt auch noch am meisten Auswahl, um noch was zu futtern. :3 Wir können natürlich auch gemeinsam irgendwo essen gehen, aber das gestaltet sich schwierig, weil ich nicht weiß, wie viele wir sein werden…
Aber dafür gibt es eine Lösung! Ich habe auf facebook ein Event zu dem Meet-Up erstellt. (Hier ein Dankeschön an glasmond für den Tipp.) Es wäre nett, wenn ihr euch einfach eintragen würdet, damit wir einen groben Überblick haben, wie viele wir denn nun sind. (Wer nicht auf facebook ist, kann mir auch einfach per Ask eine kurze Nachricht senden.) Und es macht es einfacher, uns hinterher wiederzufinden. Der Link dazu hier: http://www.facebook.com/events/169532643178139/?context=create
Danach geht’s rechtzeitig zum Karten-Abholen zum Cinema (am Stiglmair-Platz, eine Station vom Hauptbahnhof) und dann heißt es: Frankenstein! (Ich hoffe ihr seid schon so gespannt wie ich~).
Da auch hier eine Anfrage kam: In die Vorstellung kann nur, wer sein Ticket bereits verbindlich gekauft hat, da die Vorstellung bereits ausverkauft ist. Aber das heißt nicht, dass ihr vorher nicht gerne zum Meet-Up kommen könnt.
Für unsere Nachzügler: Wenn ihr gaaaanz sicher seid, dass ihr nicht pünktlich kommen könnt und uns finden wollt, dann gebe ich euch meine Handynummer, aber nur unter der Voraussetzung, dass ihr sie nach dem Event wieder löscht. Ich werde an diesem einen Tag ausnahmsweise auch Gespräche von mir unbekannten Nummern entgegennehmen, danach allerdings nicht mehr. Wer die Nummer braucht, meldet sich also einfach bei mir (entweder über fb oder auf tumblr magical-mistral kontaktieren).
Na dann, meine lieben Sherlockians, bis Donnerstag! Ich freu mich schon auf euch! :3
A few people have been asking us about this event, so here’s the information for you! WE ARE NOT RUNNING THIS… we’ll just be going. Please direct all questions HERE.
The sun is shining, London is in bloom and it’s the perfect time for a very Sherlockian picnic.
OK, so that’s not true, but it will be true on 14 July when we are organising the Second Annual Sherlock Holmes Picnic in Regents Park!
We’ll meet in the park at 12 noon at the Bandstand in Regents Park (marked on this map http://g.co/maps/4mkxm) for the picnic. We think it would be great if as well as bringing something for yourself – sandwich, salad, sausage roll, you know, the usual – everyone tries to bring something to share with the group – crisps, cakes, fruit, sweets etc. The bonus is there will be a prize for the best Sherlock related food. We had some really funky biscuits last year so the standard is high.
If you’re coming from a distance and don’t want to lug food around with you we’ve pinpointed a few local places where you can buy food on the map (we particularly recommend Speedy’s which is only a 20 minute walk away from the park, and may look familiar.)
Also, if anyone has a picnic blanket they could bring we would really appreciate it!
Then for the afternoon we’ve got a treasure hunt planned – John has been kidnapped by crazed fangirls, can you help Sherlock get his blogger back before it’s too late? – as well as quizzes, games and the opportunity to win more prizes!
All this will be followed by dinner in the evening (we’re going to try and book Tapas Brindisa, aka Angelo’s, but if they haven’t got room expect Italian).
If you’re interested in coming it would be really great if you could let us know as soon as possible, as we’re going to sort people into teams for the games ahead of time using our Magical Sorting Deerstalker. You’ll receive a message telling you your team a week before the event. There will be team badges but if you want to go the extra effort and dress up for your team that would be brilliant.
However, it’s also fine if you just show up on the day, we’ll slot you in somewhere.
Oh, and if London dares to not live up to my promise of a shining sun, rainy day arrangements will be made.
Come along for fun, food, squee and Sherlock! All are welcome!
Trills & Amy
After recent events, it is my pleasure to announce that there are plans for a Sherlock meet up in London, following the encounters myself and my dear Watson had with several lovely Sherlockians cosplaying at MCM expo in May.
It would be lovely to see all of you again, and of course any London Sherlockians or other Sherlockians who are able to attend are most welcome to do so as well. I must ask though that you inform me of your desire to attend (simply as an act of courtesy, and because I shall be most intrigued to see what the numbers amassing are like).
We shall be meeting up on 13th July in North Gower Street, after which we intend to visit the filming locations, and Baker Street (and the Sherlock Holmes museum), before heading over to Trafalgar Square. The open space there will likely be ideal for flash mobs and the mock crime scenes that proved rather popular at the expo meet. You are most welcome to come along in cosplay, as myself and several other individuals who have been previously informed are intending to.
If you have any questions don’t hesisitate to contact me. The game, my dear Sherlockians, is on!
Just another note that I’ll be there this Sunday— as myself, as John, and also as Sherlock to
nothelp people with the scavenger hunt.
Will probably be dressed as Sherlock for the screening Reichenbach. Balls.
Only slightly better-looking than I do right there. Hopefully.
Sherlock what is your face I’m sorry I have no blue contacts or eyeballs maybe I can just keep some blue eyes in a jar if people give me sass because you know that isn’t creepy at all if it’s for SCIENCE
If curious about the con, and you’re anywhere in the San Fransisco Bay Area, check it out here:
Final details for the Swiss Sherlockian Meetup at the Reichenbach falls.
- Picnic (bring your own sandwiches;P)
- Trip up to the falls with the Reichenbach funicular railway (and down again, because walking = eurgh;P)
- Visit to the Sherlock Holmes Museum
Meiringen, the town next to the Reichenbach falls is located in the Berner Oberland and is surrounded by skiing-regions so keep in mind it could be chillier than in the flatlands (god, I feel like my mom-.-).
We will meet up and board the train to Meiringen together. One meeting point will be in Zurich Mainstation and one in Lucerne. In Meiringen we will find a nice spot for our picnic before heading to the funicular railway (ca. 20min walking). After that we will head back to the heart of Meiringen, the Conan Doyle Place to visit the Sherlock Holmes Museum.
Cosplay is very welcome and expect some Vatican Cameos.;P
- train tickets: From Zurich to Meiringen, retour it’s 40.- with a Halbtax, Gemeinde Tageskarten might be an option or if you have a friend with a GA who’s coming too, ask if they’d get you a Mitnahme GA for 30.-
- the funicular costs 10.- up and back,
- the museum entry fee is 4.-
- this are the max costs, you can likely expect group discounts on the funicular and on the museum, but yeah. Just so you can make a budget.:)
- Meetup in Zurich Mainstation: 9:15 at the Meeting Point
- We will take the train from Zurich at 9:35, platform 4 and arrive at 10:25 in Lucerne
- Meetup in Lucerne: 10:30 at the beginning (that’s by the main hall, folks) of platform 12
- We will take the train from Lucerne at 10:55 and arrive in Meiringen at 12:12
Last but not least: In case of bad weather: Picnic on the train instead of outside and holing up in the Migros Restaurant for some tea (or you can roam the village of course).
My phone nr is 067 446 73 64 and if any of you misuse it there will be death and destruction. If you’re contacting me about the meetup on the other hand it will all be flowers and kittens.;)
Signal boost far and wide, fellow Sherlockians!=D And see you soon.
I think this advertisement says it all! This is happening, in Atlanta, in April. Registration opens soon and the website should be up within the next 24 hours. Please please please reblog and spread the word. We have a twitter up @221bcon and our tumblr is 221bcon.tumblr.com so follow us there for new and updates!

A mouthful, we know.
Here’s the deal! For those of you that live in and around the Chicagoland area (anyone is welcome, though) and would like to venture out for a Sherlock meetup, we’ve got an idea in mind!
WHEN: Friday, July 13th (o0o0o ominous) at 1 PM

Please make sure that you arrange your own transportation TO and FROM Navy Pier. The Pier does have a parking garage, for those of you wishing to drive, that costs $25.00 to park on Fridays. Please consider this when making your plans, especially if you plan to enjoy some lunch!
We hope to see you guys there!
Please signal boost, if you can!! <33
Can’t wait to meet some of you, and don’t forget to let us know you’re coming in one of our inboxes!
I’ve been seeing lots of other meet up posts for Frankenstein starring Benedict Cumberbatch going around, so I thought I’d add one for the Atlanta Area! Now, there are a few theaters around (not in, sadly) Atlanta showing the play, so this is all info for where I’ve bought my tickets. Anyone that can get tickets and wants to join my friend Jackie and I are welcome to come!
- When: June 6th (Wednesday) and 7th (Thursday). I have tickets and will be attending both evenings. The 6th features Benedict as the creature, and the 7th he’ll be playing the doctor. The Show starts at 7 p.m., but I was hoping we could get together earlier, at 5 p.m., to grab a bite before hand.
- Where: UA North Point Market 8 (6500 North Point Pkwy, Alpharetta, GA 30022). As far as food in the area for dinner…I’ve never actually been to the theater, but apparently it’s by Northpoint Mall (which I’ve also never been to) and it looks like there’s a LOT of food options in the area. I figure we’ll meet up at the theater first, then decide where to get food, unless something gets decided before then.
- How: You can get tickets here! (Please sure to select the date[s] you want!) Once you know what day you’re coming, if you’d like to RSVP, email firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send along my phone number or something so you can get in touch with me the day of if you have trouble finding the group.
- Also: I’ll probably bring along Benedict tea blends (Sherlock, Third Star, The Lemon is in Play, The Mind and Heart, and his other shipping blends) for people to sample if we can figure out a way to make that happen.
If you’re lucky you will even get a poster.
We also promote other Sherlock related things.
I am torn between the showings that feature Benedict as The Creature, or as the Doctor.
Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller alternate the roles of Victor Frankenstein and the Creature in two electrifying broadcasts. Benedict Cumberbatch will play the Creature on Monday (6/4) and Friday (6/8). He will play Victor Frankenstein on Thursday (6/7) and Saturday (6/9). Jonny Lee Miller will play Victor Frankenstein Monday (6/4) and Friday (6/8). He will play the Creature on Thursday (6/7) and Saturday (6/9).
So which day should I go, and is ANYONE else interested? Please let me know!
and i don’t just mean bbc sherlock.
i mean sherlock holmes movies, shows, bbc sherlock, hogwarts!sherlock - every kind of sherlock holmes we can get.
why? because it will be fun.
the mcm expo is on the final weekend of may and october every year. this may, i was lucky enough to find a sherlock and john walking around. i’ve ordered my sherlock cosplay already. but you know another thing that makes me excited and makes me want to do this?
the fact that there are always zombies in october.
