Brussels Andy Carling Tweetup, Monday 6th November, 1800, London Calling

Those of you in Brussels (and indeed on Twitter!) for a while will remember a detemined curmudgeon of a journalist named Andy Carling (@quarsan) who used to write for New Europe before returning to the UK a couple of years ago, just when the rest of us were thinking of fleeing the island!

Anyway, Andy is back in Brussels for a few days at the start of November, so we are organising a tweetup in his honour. And yes, I know a Monday is a little bit odd, but no other day works… And yes, the (cigar) smoking ban does indeed apply at our venue.

DATE: Monday 6th November – from 6pm until 9pm at least (come as and when you want to)
LOCATION: London Calling, Place de Londres [map] (where else?)
WHERE? Inside, at the far end of London Calling, past the bar! Please check @EUTweetup or #EUTweetup on the day for details

And for those of you who have never been to an EU Tweetup: the idea is pretty simple. There’s no agenda, it’s informal, and you meet folks for a beer who you otherwise only argue with on Twitter. We’ve been doing it for years and it works. Really.

 

Brussels Tweetup Thursday 12 Oct at London Calling, Place de Londres

Don’t worry. He’s not actually coming to the Tweetup.

“Whadda ya want?”
“Sufficient progress to move to stage two!”
“Sorry, can’t have that, but how about a Duvel?”

As Brexit negotiations drag interminably into their fourth round this week, and no sufficient progress in sight, come and have a beer instead with some of the most insightful EU nerds in Brussels.

Meet the folks whose Twitter threads you’ve liked, whose knitting patterns you’ve appreciated, or whose awful puns have made you groan.

For those of you who have never been to an EU Tweetup before it’s pretty simple. No agenda, no need to sign up, just come along and chat and have a beer with the folks you’ve otherwise previously encountered on Twitter. We’ve been doing it for some years now and it has become a bit of a Brussels tradition. We can assure you these folks are friendlier in real life than they are online. And no, we still do not know who Berlaymonster is.

DATE: Thursday 12th October – from 6pm until 9pm at least (come as and when you want to)
LOCATION: London Calling, Place de Londres [map] (where else?)
WHERE? Inside, at the far end of London Calling, past the bar! Please check @EUTweetup or #EUTweetup on the day for details

Summer #EUTweetup in Brussels: 17 August at the Black Sheep

Summer EUTweetUp

Brussels traditionally empties out over the Summer and there is not much on the agendas of those left behind. So, following high demand from those still here, we will hold the next Brussels Tweetup on Thursday 17 August at The Black Sheep near to Place Flagey.

We will start a little earlier than usual meeting from around 17.00 (until people want to go home).
Should the weather hold, we may be playing with a 360 camera in the fountains courtesy of our friends at @ZNConsulting.

All welcome so please spread the news. And, as always, follow the #EUTweetUp hashtag for news and updates or contact @ktowens.

Ellis Gourmet Burger Tweetup with Jason Knoll – Thursday 13th July

As previously announced, at the next Brussels tweetup on Thursday 13th July, Jason Knoll (@JasonLKnoll) and 8 of his High School students from Madison, Wisconsin will meet the Twitter nerds. As the students are still at school, this is going to be more of a dinner than a pub night tweetup!

So how will it work?

We’ve reserved a room at Ellis Gourmet Burger, Place Jourdan 20 (map), upstairs. Jason and the students will be there from 1800, and people can arrive from then onwards. If you want to eat something, can you please tell us your order by Wednesday 12th June, 1800 at the latest (i.e. 24 hours before the tweetup!) using the form below – the options on the form below correspond to the menu options here (PDF). You can submit the form for up to 4 people. Kindly DM @jonworth if you then subsequently cannot make it, or will be late. If you just want to drink something you do not need to fill in the form – just come along. And you will have to pay for your own food on the spot! As ever keep an eye on #EUtweetup for updates!

We look forward to seeing you on Thursday!

#EUTweetup Brussels: 8th June – Wild Geese – and 13th July – Venue tbc

We are happy to announce two summer tweetups in Brussels.

Thursday 8th June (the day of the UK General Election!) from 1800 at Wild Geese, Avenue Livingstone 2, 1000 Bruxelles, Belgium [map] from 1800.

Thursday 13th July from 1800, venue tbc – but this is a special tweetup as Jason Knoll (@JasonLKnoll) is in Brussels with his students. We first met Jason at a Tweetup back in 2015 and we’re happy to welcome him back. He’s a high school teacher in Madison, Wisconsin who uses Twitter as an educational tool with his students – so come along and meet them!

#EUtweetup Brussels: Thursday 6th April – Brew Dog Brussels

It’s finally happened. Article 50 has been triggered and the EU28 is becoming the EU27.

Perhaps even more noteworthy for an audience, the FT front page article opened with not one, but three tweets. You see, there is always a silver lining. The EU flag-tastic pictures filling our timelines from various grassroots initiatives across Europe also give us hope!

So, let’s seize the occasion and toast to the next 60 years of the EU at a celebratory . After a democratic vote:

We are meeting on 6 April at from 6.30pm until 10pm (…at least) It’s right next to Gare Central (map) and has an amazing terrace if the Brussels weather decides to cooperate, but having lived in Brussels for a while, we reserved the ‘tasting room’ in the middle of the bar, you know, just in case! And, if all that doesn’t convince you, it may even be your last chance to see

No need to register, just follow the hashtag and come along. Hope to see you there!

BrewDog_Brussels_(@brewdogbrussels)_•_Instagram_photos_and_videos_-_2016-02-08_14.35.19Another impromptu #EUtweetup!

This week 15 Polish youtubers, bloggers, instagrammers are in town – so why not go for a drink with them and learn the tricks of the trade? Some of them are local heros, passionate about urban-bicycling and green cities, others are the real influencers on the Polish web, with YouTube subscription counts reaching over 300K. Amongst them the organizers of Polish TweetUps, a female duo of vlogging truck-drivers and a pro-refugee activist, organising the “Walk to Aleppo” during Christmas.

#EUtweetup Brussels: Tuesday 15th November – London still hasn’t called (or notified)

lcAutumn becomes winter. The Brussels hacks huddle inside, with hands wrapped around glasses of dark beer, and wonder about the phoney war. And Theresa May still hasn’t sent the Article 50 notification.

Meanwhile the kind folks over at Euractiv have blogged about EU Tweetups, and James Crisp is encouraging us all to be more positive about Belgium. So why not come along for a beer? Everyone is very welcome!

Put the details in your diary!

DATE: Tuesday 15th November – from 6pm until 9pm at least (come as and when you want to)
LOCATION: London Calling, Place de Londres (where else?)
WHERE? Inside, at the far end of London Calling, past the bar! Please check @EUTweetup on the day for details

#EUtweetup Brussels: Wednesday 21st September – welcome back after the summer!

lcSo the summer is over. Brussels is back in business. And we still have no sodding clue how Brexit is going to work. So join us for a beer to drown your sorrows about all of those things and, in typical Brussels EU Tweetup style, meet all the folks who talk about the EU on Twitter. We’ve got no special guests confirmed for this tweetup yet (although rumour has it that two prominent EU Twitter nerds are in Brussels for good, from Brighton and Den Haag) but we’ll update this blog entry as and when we know more.

But for now put the details in your diary!

DATE: Wednesday 21st September – from 6pm until 9pm at least (come as and when you want to)
LOCATION: London Calling, Place de Londres (where else?)
WHERE? Outside or inside, depending on the weater! Please check @EUTweetup on the day for details
