It's my first post in a new position: I was happy to take on the perks and responsibilities as an events organizer for Seventypercent.com, offered by Martin and Steve.
The Chocolate Festival will be a great opportunity to meet all keen chocolate connoisseurs, and we would like to have a informal warm evening for all the forum members who will be in London at the Festival. Just the relaxed get together, where we can talk chocolate as much as we want to.
We'd have to find the date most suitable for everyone, so I'd like to ask forum members, interested to come, to email me soon directly.

Hi there, I have only recently discovered this forum, but definitely seems like the one for a chocoholic like myself!![:p] Having read the past threads, it seems like there's not much organised by seventypercent.com this year, like the "gala" event last year or the tour two years ago... so really sounds like a good idea to organise a party afternoon/night to meet up and drown in chocolate.
I will probably be there in London on Friday 4th;; perhaps depending on the event organised by seventypercent.com!! So please I beg you to organise a BIG party! -- thank you and I certainly look forward to it.
p.s. does anyone know whether the Olympia event is worth going to, just for the "Chocolate stalls"?

Hi, Alex, been some time... Will be good to meet you. Looks like so far we all going to be at the Chloë Doutre Roussel's book launch @ Foyles on Thur the 3 of November, so the idea is to carry on after. Let me know if it suits you?

I'm back in Sweden now. I was in London when Martin tried to chat with Logodude telling him we (Martin and Masur) were at Olympia and Chocolate Festival. We waited five minutes for a reply from Legodude until I had to rush to get home to Sweden. It was half an hour before the event was closing down so maybe Martin had too much to do.

I popped in too, but you guys signed off as soon as I did. We recently had to set our clocks back, so I think I am now one hour late.
