Alberta Meetup November 4, 2005 9:34 PM   Subscribe

Calgary/Southern Alberta Meet-up? I'm willing to drive up (and/or carpool) to Calgary to do an Alberta Meet-up in the next few weeks. Anyone else interested in doing this? I'm thinking November 25 or December 2nd at a yet unnamed pub.

I happen to know of a few active Southern Alberta Mefites, and at least a bunch from Calgary as well (and just tonight found another, who happens to have written a really cool book, so his attendance is mandatory!)

Mandatory, eh? Okay, I'll do my best to make it then. 25th is probably preferable for me. The Wildwood Pub (downstairs from the restaurant) on 4th St SE in Mission is a comfortable joint. Very reasonably priced microbrew pints. And stumbling distance from my house, which is helpful too.

That should be 4th St SW.

That sounds like fun, provided I can get a ride from Lethbridge.

Natasha: you can ride with me. Might be useful for a paper in your cyberspace class or something!

I lived in Calgary in 1990. I recall an area nicknamed electric ave. I was wondering if people still call it electric ave?

My cyberspace paper is due before the meetup, but hey... any excuse for a party right?

I'm in too. Either day works for me.

I am a Calgary resident and interested... is there a location for this yet?

I'll try to make either date. Although, the High Dials are in town on the 1st - I may use my weekly night out pass for that.

Wildwood sounds good, or else there's Brew Bros on the former Electric Ave.

Not sure if this is still a go project, but if it is, is it too late to change my vote to Dec 2? Something else has come up on the 25th.

Well considering your attendance is mandatory we'd better make it the 2nd.

Anyone want to finalize time/place.

Realise I'm probably too late for this (just discovered right now), but if this doesn't take place tonight, is it still on?
