Sat March 10 at 4:00 PM, Vineyards on the Byward Market
54 York St, Ottawa, ON K1N 9C7, Canada (Map & Directions)
Meetup time/place/date set! I hope everyone can make it. We live in the middle of nowhere and seeing some friendly mefite faces would be lovely.

Yes, of course! But it might be a little far for people from Northern Ontario. /silly.

But seriously, I am ready, willing and likely able, even if it involves crossing bodies of water (so long as we're talking about the Ottawa, Rideau or Gatineau Rivers, the Ruisseau de la Brasserie or the Rideau Canal)

I'm likely down.

Sure, that'd be fun.

Depends on when, but I'm up for it so far!

Like aclevername, it depends on the day, but count me in!

Best for us would be a weekend day or evening...maybe in March?

Depends on the day, but sure.

I'd love it if as many people as possible could come...any Sat or Sun in March is free for us but I'll put this out: Sat or Sun the 10th or 11th? I don't live in Ottawa, sadly, so I'm not great for spots.


1. Does that day work for people? A sort of late-midday/early evening drinks thing is the usual meetup MO, right?

2. Where?

Lemme know if this works for most/all.
posted by supercoollady at 1:15 PM on February 18, 2012

The 11th is out for me. I have other commitments.
posted by aclevername at 12:16 PM on February 20, 2012

Alrighty, the 10th it is. And now the first person who posts gets to pick their favorite centrally-located and totally charming venue. And....go!

Well, the Vineyards on the Byward Market is the traditional meeting-place. Their wine list is really good, but we will have to make reservations if we anticipate a bunch of people. There's also Pub Italia on Somerset Street, but they don't take reservations.

I may be able to come, pending being here that weekend. I'm right off a main bus line, so can easily get to nearly wherever you choose.
posted by frimble at 8:15 PM on February 21, 2012

I should be able to make it.
posted by BozoBurgerBonanza at 7:43 AM on February 24, 2012


Why is it that meetups in locations I'm in never happen when I'm actually in said locale? I'd love to make it as I don't know many Ottawa folks but am working here in Turks and Caicos for a few months and won't return until April. :(

Sorry Carabiner!

I'd be interested in meeting some mefites. I've only recently registered with the site but I've been lurking for something like 3-4 years now at least. If it's not entirely inappropriate I may be able to convince myself to swing by. First time I've seen/heard of an Ottawa meet up.

Would of course be thrilled to have you.
posted by supercoollady at 8:50 AM on March 6, 2012

some loser, drop by, it'll be fun!
posted by LN at 7:47 PM on March 6, 2012

I think my husband (not registered, but he reads the site every day) will drop by! Sounds like fun.
posted by deadtrouble at 11:08 AM on March 7, 2012

I'll be there. It's my birthday. Should be fun.

Also, Carabiner: Start another meetup thread when you get back. The budget will have landed by then =P

Hi all, I'll make a reservation under the name Metta Filter (or Metta, if they just want a first name) for 4:00 at this place...hopefully it won't be too crowded but better safe than sorry, I say. If there are any problems/issues I'll post here.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
posted by supercoollady at 1:33 PM on March 8, 2012

I will be there about 5:00
posted by BozoBurgerBonanza at 12:47 AM on March 10, 2012

...or possibly not.

Woooo! 12 people! Awesome meetup. Cheers folks!

Sorry I missed it :( But had a bit of a personal emergency. Sounds like it went well though!
posted by aclevername at 6:54 PM on March 10, 2012

We all had great fun, met some lovely people. Great meetup!

Good to have met you all.

That was a lot of fun. Looking forward to the next one!

Yup, enjoyed that! I put the 3 pics I took up in case anyone wants to take a look.
When's the next one?
posted by merocet at 11:41 AM on March 13, 2012

It was fun - I'm excited for the next one. It was great meeting you all.
