Society of Beer Drinking Ladies event for Lady MeFites!
posted January 12, 2016 7:45 AM   RSS

I have always wanted to go to one of SOBDL's bevies. I'd like to go as part having fun and part networking/research for my impending podcast. I'd love for you to join me!
The bevy events happen the last Friday of every month and are women-only (until midnight when partners or guy friends can join in). Tix usually run about $20, but this includes all your booze, snacks, and gift packages for you to take home. You can find out more info at the SOBDL FAQ here.

I was going to propose the February event but I can't make it because I have to go to the States that weekend.

Ideally, I'd like to make this a semi-regular thing so I hope you guys might be interested!

These people sound super fun, but alas, I really, really hate beer.

A friend of mine has been to one of these events - she said it was great.

They are great! Alas, I just quit drinking.

This sounds fun and I am tentatively interested!

The next event is Friday Jan/29 at hBar which is 859 Queen St. W.

Tickets are still being sold.

Kitteh are you down for that one, or are we looking at the March event at this point?

cranberrymonger, I would LOVE to go to that one, but I am skint. I could afford the ticket but I'd have to take the bus back to Kingston that night because I wouldn't have a place to stay! (I plan on booking a room for the March one.)

When is the March one? I could definitely be up for splitting the cost of a room if you wanted, Kitteh.

It should be the 25th of March? That is the last Friday.

I could maybe do the January one, and can definitely do the March one.

If you all go to the January one, I hope you have a great time!

This sounds like so much fun! I'd be up for either January or March...

Okay so I looked more into the details, and it looks like the ticket (which is $25 for the January one + Eventbrite fees) is good for ONE beer only. I'm still down to try it out but it does change the calculus somewhat.

Oh, I definitely misunderstood! Sorry about that.

Tickets include: a free welcome beer, a morning after gift, a once in a lifetime chance to try this month's Bevy Brew, a chance to win some seriously sweet beer-related prizes and a rockin' good time with other beer lovin' ladies - all in a surprise venue!

Hmm, I read this as 2 beers: the welcome beer + the Bevy Brew. Unless I'm missing something, which is likely :)

The ticket is always $25 plus a service charge from Eventbrite. It includes 1 drink ticket that you can use on a full glass of any beer, the morning after gift, and a raffle ticket. After that, a full glass of beer is $6 and a half-glass is $3. The raffle prize is usually beer-related (mostly brew kits) but there have also been vouchers for haircuts and other stuff. You get a SOBDL card stamped at the door and at 5 and 10 stamps, you get a prize, usually SOBDL merch.

It's a really great organization, the events are always well-run, and the profits go to the Canadian Women's Foundation. I attended most of the events in 2015 and I've met a lot of really great women through it.

OK. I am prepared to take the plunge for January. Who's with me?

I hope you ladies go this Friday and enjoy it. I will see you all if you're interested for the March one.
