I am in Calgary in two weeks. I am going to see a bunch of art, and have one research day at the Glenbow, but would like beer.

Oooooooh! We haven't had a meet-up in over a year, primarily because everyone is still unfreezing themselves after winter 2013/14. I'm game!

Where are you staying?

I'm staying with a friend downtown. I want to see shows at Illingswerth Kerr, The Nickel, The Glenbow and the Esker (Well the same show) The research I need to do is also at the Glenbow.

I'll see how plans firm up for this, but I'm hopeful of making it! We so rarely get together.

I'm in! What night were you thinking?
posted by mireille at 5:55 PM on January 17, 2015

28th or 29th

I can make either of those evenings.

I should be able to make those evenings work...

Things have moved around a bit, could we do the 1st?
posted by PinkMoose at 12:41 PM on January 18, 2015

Also good for me.

Works for me as well
posted by mireille at 3:20 PM on January 18, 2015

1st should be doable
posted by nubs at 3:25 PM on January 18, 2015

I'm good with the 1st too!

2nd? :-( As always, I am out-of-town, until the 2nd...
posted by jkaczor at 8:26 AM on January 19, 2015

I'm also out of town the 30th-1st, but in town for the 2nd.

I'll also note that the 1st is Superbowl Sunday, which may affect pub selection.

the first would work better than the second, but i forgot it was the superbowl...shit

2nd is also fine, but has to be the evening.
posted by lizbunny at 1:36 PM on January 23, 2015

I could make the 2nd work as well.
posted by arcticseal at 5:16 AM on January 24, 2015

Yeah, 2nd is possible. I think if we select a locale with some care, we might be able to avoid the Superbowl craziness too.
posted by nubs at 8:31 AM on January 26, 2015

Err, it's the 3rd. Did we miss the window? :(
posted by arcticseal at 11:24 AM on February 3, 2015

I think we did. Is it me, or does this always happen to us? Somebody needs to take charge and set concrete plans.
posted by nubs at 12:28 PM on February 3, 2015

I think it's a case of it never happens to us! Anyone ski/board? Supposed to finally snow properly this weekend.
posted by arcticseal at 7:59 PM on February 3, 2015

Yeah, missed it (mind you, I was traveling this week).

The idea of a meetup around something involving snow or mountains seems like a decent idea. I only go to ski resorts for social reasons (mostly x-c ski and backcountry ski tour), and I'd be into it. That said, next weekend is 'family weekend', so it might be a bit crowded at the resorts.
