You may walk around and when you approach a person you will be able to hear them speak and see their video, if turned on. The meetup room is open now so you may connect and test to see how it works. When joining for the first time you will go to a tutorial location. On the left hand side, you should see the option to skip tutorial and go to the room.

A successful first Virtual Pub Meet-up.
On Thursday 10th September 2020 I attended a virtual pub meet up organised and hosted by Paul @theBlueandorange. The doors were to open at 19:30hrs BST (British Summer Time) and the meet-up to start from 20:00hrs BST. This was advertised as a relaxed event with no pressure on participation, people were welcome to come and go, bring friends and of course, bring your own drinks. The doors actually opened early, I arrived around 19:15hrs with beer in hand, interested to see how a virtual pub would be received. We are in very hard and strange times, making trips out difficult and even something as simple as a drink at your local impossible for some. A virtual pub had the potential to be well received as a location to escape, meet new people and discuss something we all have in common; Cardano. It was great to see people arrive, it didn’t take long for conversation to start flowing. Throughout the evening we could see different people come and go, with around 12 punters in the pub at any one time. Conversation varied from Stake pools, crypto taxing, IOG (Input Output Global), The Cardano Foundation, Emurgo, Staking as well as casually getting to know each other. Some people came along and listened, many got involved, which was great about the relaxed nature of the pub. I stayed until just after 22:00hrs, I enjoyed a couple beers and had a really good time, the feedback after was positive.
