Thu December 15 at 6:00 PM, Alibi Room
157 Alexander St, Vancouver, BC V6A 1B8, Canada (Map & Directions)
Well, I'm just in town for a couple weeks and recalled the last time I was in town for a couple weeks and had a lovely time at a meetup (many years ago). So we're meeting at the Alibi Room, at 6pm on Thursday. I'll be outside at 6 wearing a purple scarf and if you come a little later we'll try to be downstairs. I'll post an update if not.

Drat, this is while I'm out of town. Guess I'll have to look if Toronto is having any meetups.

Anyone want to help non-local me out and suggest a location? And propose a time too, I suppose.

As I do not drink alcohol, I do not feel I am qualified to suggest a location. But maybe if we knew what part of town you'll be in, someone else will have a good recommendation? I like early evenings and brunches as far as timing goes :)

Oh! It looks like the other meetups have been downtown at Doolins, the Alibi Room, and Mahoney and Sons at Canada Place. I've never been to any of those places, but unless there are complaints from previous meetup-ers, one of those might work.

I've been meaning to make it out to the Alibi Room so my vote is for that!

Well, let's say Alibi Room, Thursday after work. 6PM?

No objections here.

Fun times all around! I learned about what it's like to live in the interior of BC and Montreal.

Thanks to ssg for instituting the meetup and to birdsquared for his generosity in buying us food. What a guy ;)

I only wish I'd taken pictures...

If only you had a phone (with a camera...)
Agreed on it being fun, and my thanks to ssg as well for setting it up.

Damn! I completely blanked on checking in on this. Glad y'all had fun! We'll have to russle up Vancouverites again soon in the new year.
