A Consultation with the John H Watson Society

On April 13, 2013, the John H Watson Society held its very first “consultation” – toasts were given, food was eaten, and drinks were drunken. It’s high time this tradition was revived, and the upcoming 221B Con gives us the perfect opportunity!Watsonian badge ribbons

Of course, those who have perused the Con Schedule know that the weekend is already jam-packed. But you need to eat (and drink).

(Trust me on this; I’m a mom.)

Join me (“Selena Buttons”) in the bar area of the Atlanta Marriott Perimeter Center for conversation, drinks, munchies, and an all-round good time on Saturday, April 8, at 10:00pm EDT. Internet permitting, there will also be an open Google Hangout for those of you who can’t make it to Atlanta to join in virtually. There will be “Watsonian” badge ribbons, too.

Hope to see you there!

If You Will Be In London . . .

A fun adventure awaits those of you who may be in London on May 23, 2014. This was received from our member Michele Lopez, President of Uno Studio in Holmes of Italy:

Dear Sherlockian Friends

Our society, Uno Studio in Holmes, has organized a Sherlockian trip to England in the weekend from the 23rd to the 25th of May, 2014.

We’ll come from various parts of Italy and we’ll meet in London for three days of Holmes-related fun and good time.

We plan to dine at the Criterion Restaurant in Piccadilly on Friday, May 23rd, around 8:30 pm. We shall be very happy to welcome anyone that happens to be in London in those days, who wants to join us for a dinner in commemoration of the first historical meeting between Watson and young Stamford in that same location.

We’ll have a trip to Portsmouth on Saturday, May 24th (reserved for society members) and a London walk in search of Holmesian locations (from Baker Street to St.Bartholomew’s Hospital and the SH Pub) on the morning of Sunday, May 25th. Around 2.00 pm we’ll have high tea at The Orangery, Kensington.

If you are interested in participating in one of these events, please let me know by e-mail, since we need to make reservations well in advance.

I hope to see you in London,

With my warmest regards,

Michele Lopez
Uno Studio in Holmes
