Sonic Fans Organise Unofficial Pre-SoS Party

Sonic Fans Organise Unofficial Pre-SoS Party

Looking forward to the Summer of Sonic 2011? We sure are, especially as we’re setting it all up (and we know what’s coming)! But Summer of Sonic only happens for one day – what if you want something to do before the official proceedings kick off? Well, that’s where a group of plucky fans have stepped in, as they have kick-started an unofficial pre-SoS gathering of their own.

Fellow Brits Ben and Rebecca have booked the Jetlag Sports Bar and Restaurant in London’s Marylebone district on Friday 24th June at 6pm, and anyone who might be travelling from afar to see the delights of the Summer of Sonic convention is more than welcome to attend.

At this juncture it’s worth pointing out that this event is not associated with the Summer of Sonic 2011 Convention, taking place on Saturday 25th June at Camden Centre. This event is fan-run and organised by a third party – The Sonic Stadium is simply spreading the word to all who might wish to attend.

Got that? Good. If you’re interested, check out the Facebook page here and register your interest. There’s an entry fee of £7 to get in and a minimum spend of £12.50 per guest, so have some wonga ready and enjoy a relaxed night out with some Sonic friends before the big party kicks off on Saturday.

I’m afraid you won’t see the likes of myself, T-Bird or AAUK there – we’ll be having pre-SoS parties of our own (well, I will, everyone else may be sleeping) – so we’ll see you all on the Saturday instead! Have fun!

  1. Appreciate the shout out Dread, thanks! : )

    Rebecca is me BTW~ Just so people know ; ) I tend to be lurking about the place and post every once in a while. A note that we can only have about 60 people in the venue so spaces are a bit limited, though we know a lot of people won’t actually be about till on the day. We just wanted to do a little something for the blue blur’s birthday before SoS really kicked off : )

  2. and thanks from me too! I’m Ben, as the article mentions.

    Like Becky said, the venue capacity is fairly limited but we need 60 people to attend in order to cover our costs and the venue will hold up to about 65-70 so our range is a bit tight but we don’t see that as a huge problem. Please make sure you can spare the necessary cash if you would like to join us, we promise it’s going to be worth every penny!

    There’s going to be dinner, drinks, dancing and our main feature… multiplayer fun with classic Sonic games on an HD CINEMA SCREEN. Hellz yeah baby! ;D

    We really hope lots of you will be able to make it. If you would like to ask us any questions. Get in touch via Facebook or Twitter, or post your question here. You can find me on Twitter @rio_ben.

  3. I’m not sure, I kinda want to go, but I don’t want to commit myself in case any friends ask me to join them the night before.

  4. Hope you can make it Hogfather. This isn’t going to be a simple meet-up in a community centre or anything.
    We’re actually hiring out an ambient bar in an international restaurant. It’s called Jetlag, and it’s ranked as one of London’s best bars on! Why not just invite your friends to come along? =D

    Here’s some rather nice pictures of the place.,24081
