Calgary pre-winter outdoor meetup

Hey everyone, Reviving this thread as it kind of stalled out last month or so. Just wondering who might be interested in an IRL meetup, while it's still warm enough to do an outdoor/backyard/patio type thing. I'd be very happy to host a backyard BBQ at my place, but now that patios are open again, I'm open to suggestions as well.

Buy a drink for Dr. Ashley Bloomfield!

Okay, fair, he probably won't be there. But if he is, we all owe him a beer. Now that COVID-19 has been eradicated in New Zealand, let's meet up and support some of the local businesses that have been pummeled over the past few months. Meet up at Riverside Market by Canterbury Brewer's Collective. We'll grab a table, everyone can grab drinks (alcoholic or non- as is your desire) and noshes. You in?

OK! We've been a roll with one evening after another of dissection of bad to horrible films, odd flashbacks, completely missed musical connections, scary things, and other stuff that one might not feel are that fun and engaging, but oddly enough seem to keep bringing us all back. Same bat time, same bat channel. Eight pm Sunday, 17 May JST. This is a mainly Japan-based crew of Mefites, but the more the merrier if the time zone works for you. [more inside]
