I'm still in London and still Lisping, at least at home with my own
dialect (which is quite similar to Common Lisp).   I'd be interested in
meeting other Lispers.   Any pub which does good beer gets my vote,
particularly if they have some Belgian ales, e.g. the Lowlander.   Who
else is still in London?

We used to be a lot more active than in the past: occasional pub meats,
and we joined up with the Schematics for some seminars.   There's also a
Computer Science Reading Club which met at a pub in Clerkenwell and read
SICP together - I went to one of their meetings.
