Hey UC - i'm in Europe till the morning of the 22nd ... here in London now; a quick jaunt to Paris and back to London till the 22nd. Let me know if you are in either location before the eve of the 21st and we might be able to get together with Kent Wang, Barims and maybe some of the other UKers.
My partner and I are in London from Friday midday (2013/11/15) through Sunday evening (2013/11/17), leaving for Florence Monday morning. We've plans Friday night, but are unscheduled for Sat. and Sun. I'll PM you with contact info.
A delight for the eyes, a drain on the credit card . . .
