When is the next insider event?
We have 3 types of meet-ups which we commonly call TIPPLES.
The most common are mini-TIPPLEs where 2 or 3 Insiders meet up for a drink and a chat for a couple of hours. I’ve met up with pey, brilin, fistuk, seatexan, painedplatinum and bejacob that way. These usually occur when one member finds out another is staying close by at the same time, either during exchanges on the threads or by looking at the 2019 upcoming stays here 2019 Upcoming Stays. I’m looking forward to mini-TIPPLING in May with jerryl in London and jw99 in Budapest as I just happen to be in those cities at the same time they are, in London I’m at the Sheraton Grand and Jerry is at the County Hall whilst in Budapest, I’m at the Intercontinental and JW99 is at the Marriott.
The organised TIPPLEs are one of 2 types -
1. Turn-Up-&-TIPPLE where someone simply announces they’re hosting and asks people to turn up, such as nipper here https://insiders.marriott.com/message/273101?commentID=273101#comment-273101 and me here Turn-Up-&-TIPPLE in London Saturday 27 April. For a TU&T people just arrange on a thread to turn up at a bar, or the hosts home, and go from there.
2. TIPPLE - these are the big ones where 25-50 members turn up, many with their significant others. Theres been two so far, in Houston in September 2016 and DC in April 2018. Usually a few Insiders DM one another and post a thread announcing they're thinking about hosting a TIPPLE, putting forward a city and rough date 10-12 months in the future and seeking interested TIPPLErs. If there’s sufficient interest Marriott is consulted and a property sought out to host the event. Although it’s only one night most people attend for 2 or 3 and make a weekend of it. There’ll not be a full TIPPLE this year but I reckon there’s a growing expectation there’ll be one in 2020.
So the next organised TIPPLE is a Turn-Up-&-TIPPLE in London on 27 April with bejacob, brilin, pey, hallchr, brightlybob and normanp as likely attendees and the latest thread on that is here We’re TIPPLING Saturday - last call to join in!
