Vancouver Meetup? I'm a Canadian living outside the country, and will be visiting Vancouver from May3 to May 5, I'd love to meet fellow members. Anyone game? Any suggestions?

I'm in Vancouver around then as well, like oh wow coincidence. I'll come probably :)

Date and time?

There was a meetup fairly recently. I didn't go, but a number of Van regulars did. I'd show up for this one, but I broke my leg last month ad have some mobility issues.

I'm away until the sixth, so count me out. But while you guys are all here, can all the UBC students who wanted a UBC meetup email me (I lost your addresses) at

Smiley's (where we went last time, back in February) was ok. If there are only a few people, could try a reservation at Steamworks (next to Waterfront station) near the pool tables.

iirc Docgonzo is starting grad studies at UBC - don't know when he starts - but Koerner's pub kicks ass ($16 pitchers of Strongbow, and they have Storm on tap).

The New Amsterdam Cafe?

ori - it's Lenny70, sanitycheck, vernondalhart (?), and (starting May 1st) me who's on campus. There's another one or two who didn't make it to the last meet.

I'd actually rather pick somewhere other than Koerner's. I've spent enough time over the semester in there that it'd be nice to head somewhere else for a change.

MeFi's + Beer = GOOD!

Count me in!

Don't live in vancouver anymore, but I'd suggest the fringe (broadway and trutch?). Spent lots of time in Koerners, I disagree that it kicks ass.

Fringe cafe wouldn't be bad; an added bonus is that it's close to where I live. It's a bit small, but judging by the response here, we should be fine.

I'd be interested if it falls on the 4th or 5th. 3rd is out for me.

Ori: I'm not going to be a ubc-er anymore assuming I pass my finals, but I will be most likely be working on campus. email in profile.

I'll be in Seattle and then on a plane for Ireland, but next time?

How about Thursday May 4, 7:30pm?
I guess Keg at Granville Island is out?
What location does the majority vote for?

Truth be told, I'm game anywhere; Keg, Fringe cafe...
posted by vernondalhart at 11:17 AM on April 26, 2006

I'll tentatively agree to the Thursday idea, although I'd prefer the following Friday or something on the weekend.
posted by antifreez_ at 11:48 AM on April 27, 2006

I can't do Friday or the weekend. I'll put up a followup post over the weekend.
