Fri March 17 at 7:00 PM, Hexagon Board Game Cafe
1140 Kensington Rd NW, Calgary, AB T2N 3P3, Canada (Map & Directions)
Happy Spring, everyone! Hope all the fellow Calgary MeFites are enjoying the sunshine today. What's everyone doing on Friday, March 17th? I've got it wide open if anyone else would like to try for another meetup.

Sounds good to me! Maybe we'll even have some warm weather.

Should work for me, too!

Awesome! And yes, how great would that be?

Forgot to mention this in the original post, but I assume we are doing Spice Welcome, as per last atempt.

I'm definitely in for anytime after 4pm, and I'm very curious about the Spice Welcome!

I'm in! Prefer downtown or walking distance from it, probably available after 6. Venue choice needs to reflect that it's St. Patrick's day, though. πŸΊπŸ€πŸ»

Skiing! I'll be in Whistler that week, so can't make it. Please join me in praying to the snow gods :)

I'm free the following week though.

"Spice" is defined by angiep as the plural of "spouse".

In other words, feel free to bring your significant other if you'd like.

I thought it was some new resturant or something.

Slightest of letdowns as I imagined some deeply secretive initiation rite but definitely not truly disappointed as it'll mean even more great people to meet!
posted by mireille at 7:18 PM on March 5, 2017

I'm in, as well! Maybe the Bear and Kilt downtown? The closer we pursue a St Patrick's theme, though, the more raucous it'll probably be.
posted by sagc at 6:37 PM on March 8, 2017

I love the Bear & Kilt. However, I definitely overlooked the St. Patrick's Day aspect of things. Pretty much any pub that day will be a tricky place to have any kind of conversation.

I'm sure we'll be able to find a non-rowdy venue to meet that day, but I'm also available Saturday night if anyone else would prefer.

Yeah, I hadn't thought about it being St. Patricks day either. I think I can make the 18th work; I'm also wondering if something like the board game cafe we used last time wouldn't work well on St. Patricks Day as well - it doesn't strike me that St Paddy revelers will be seized by a sudden need to play Love Letter.

Yes, I had the same thoughts re: board game cafe. Works for me.
posted by CarrotAdventure at 10:04 AM on March 10, 2017

Let's do the boardgame place on Friday this time, and the Bear and Kilt (which is great) next time.
posted by Homeboy Trouble at 9:41 PM on March 10, 2017

Sounds good!

We could go to the same one as last time or try someplace new; personally, I'm curious to check out Hexagon in Kensington, but I'm up for wherever really. Anyone have any preferences/suggestions?
posted by CarrotAdventure at 6:02 AM on March 11, 2017

I've been to Hexagon a few times - I like it a lot! It's got more space (and I think more games) than the place we were at last time, which might be nice.
posted by sagc at 10:10 PM on March 14, 2017

Sounds good to me - Kensington is a little closer to home for me & things like the train as well, which might be handy for some of us.
posted by nubs at 9:40 AM on March 15, 2017 [1 favorite]

Kensington is good for me too - just checking, had we landed on Friday or Saturday?
posted by mireille at 4:56 PM on March 15, 2017

Hexagon is good for me! I'd prefer Friday but could do either night!
posted by Homeboy Trouble at 7:04 PM on March 15, 2017

Yeah, same here on preferring Friday.
posted by sagc at 9:03 AM on March 16, 2017

What time are we aiming for?
posted by nubs at 9:39 AM on March 16, 2017

How about 7pm?
posted by CarrotAdventure at 1:14 PM on March 16, 2017

Works for me
posted by nubs at 1:27 PM on March 16, 2017

Coolio - I have confirmed the details as such for the time being! If 7pm is problematic for anyone, please just let me know.
posted by CarrotAdventure at 3:10 PM on March 16, 2017

7pm tomorrow works for me too!
posted by mireille at 4:05 PM on March 16, 2017

7 pm works, although the date on this says the 23rd. I'll see you folks tomorrow!
posted by Homeboy Trouble at 9:00 PM on March 16, 2017

Oops! Sorry about that. Just fixed the date (though it's a little late in the game, and I'm pretty sure we're all on the same page anyways).

See y'all tonight!
posted by CarrotAdventure at 12:25 PM on March 17, 2017

Sagc and I are here - table F3
posted by nubs at 5:58 PM on March 17, 2017

Really fun hang, thanks everyone for coming! Sorry I had to jet early! Looking forward to the next meetup.
posted by CarrotAdventure at 1:19 AM on March 18, 2017

Yeah, that was a good time - thanks for organizing it! Hope we can do it again soon.
posted by nubs at 10:52 AM on March 18, 2017

Agreed, lovely to meet you all!
posted by mireille at 12:45 PM on March 18, 2017

Did you guys end up playing any board games?
posted by CarrotAdventure at 8:05 AM on March 19, 2017

No - we seem to want the cafe aspect more than anything. Maybe about the 5th or 6th time we do this, we'll play a game :)
posted by nubs at 10:49 AM on March 19, 2017 [1 favorite]

So how was it?
posted by arcticseal at 12:21 PM on March 21, 2017

It was a good time! Great to see everyone and met mireille, and I hope we can do it again soon and that you can make it this time. I think you and I have an unfinished discussion about Spiderman.
