The Guardian report that "Hundreds of people will bid goodbye to drinking on the London underground with a subterranean cocktail party on the Circle line, following a viral campaign on Facebook."
"a formal umbrella site has now been set up for the combined event, Last Orders on the Underground.
One of the organisers, James Darling, 20, a web developer from Snaresbrook, east London, said: "I think it's going to be very interesting. I am not quite sure they can do anything about it.
In Darling's party, the importance of good behaviour and respect has been impressed on attendees, as well as responsible drinking. Participants are also encouraged to turn up in formal attire. The event will be a 'gentrified affair'.
He insisted he was not making a protest but "making the most of the current law while [we] still can". The introduction of the ban was "a very easy thing to do" for Johnson, said Darling,"
It will be interesting to see how the Evening Standard are going to report this, as they seem desperately keen to promote themselves as neutral on the Boris Booze Ban coverage. See their email to the London Underground Blog
If you plan on going to the "normal" later party you might want to get in your order for the "Don't Blame Me, I Didn't Vote Boris" T shirt fairly quickly to make sure it arrives in time for the party.
Welcome Boris Watchers!
Boris Watchers has been set up to scrutinise the new Mayoralty of Boris Johnson.
The blog aims to become a Wiki-style tool for constantly scrutinising the new administration in City Hall.
We sure can't trust the Evening Standard to keep an eye on him!
