Sixty years

Happy sixtieth anniversary to the original First Thursday SF/F Fannish Pub Meet!

It was a particularly appropriate night on which to bring D-the-houseguest along for a visit; appropriate even more so since it's thanks to the Toronto First Thursday group that we know him in the first place. By default, it's not referred to as "First Thursday" here in London. It's called "the Tun", e.g. "Are you going to the Tun this week?" The One Tun was the name of a pub which hosted the meet way back when.

D sent me a text-message about this last night while I was at the Toronto Tun. So this has actually been going on since nineteen-forty-freaking-six?

Actually before that, but the War got in the way. Its been 60 years of *continuous* meetings.

58 more years for CFTAG to equal this record, I see.
