Vancouver: Anyone interested in a get together and maybe a little drinky drinky? I'll be in Vancouver BC next week (August 14-17) and know next to nothing about the city, so I'll need to help organizing.

Sure. Are you downtown?

I missed the last three by a combination of laziness and bad timings. Yeah, sure...

As per usual, I can be there.

I'm in. What do you feel like doing? I'd suggest the Irish Heather or the Black Frog, or, if you're feeling more rowdy, the Railway.

I'm staying at HI Central Hostel in the "Granville Street" district. Whatever you guys are up for is fine by me.

Black frog is one of my semi-regular hangouts, so that's cool with me. Irish Heather's pretty nice too.

Cool, I'll be at a loose end in Vancouver around then. Room for an English lurker?
posted by devon at 10:03 AM on August 9, 2006

If there's room for a Texas lurker, there's certainly room for an English lurker.

How is Tuesday evening at 8:00 for people? I'm just throwing that out there.
posted by lunalaguna at 10:07 AM on August 9, 2006

Sure, as long as it's not the 16th. :)
posted by jokeefe at 10:25 AM on August 9, 2006

Fine with me. Is it the Black Frog, the Irish Heather or someplace else?

Hey, if anyone is interested, I'm checking out the Useless Toy Boat Contest on Tuesday, the 15th. It's at 3:00 in Emery Barnes park.
posted by lunalaguna at 2:01 PM on August 9, 2006

I'd lean towards the Black Frog, myself. If it's a nice day on the 15th, then there'll be very little room at the Heather. Also, the BF's got a nice loungy place in it.
I don't know if others have seen this thread, but I'll email porpoise and see if he's coming too.

Thanks for the email Zack_R - I'm in.

Want me to spread the word to the other Mefi's on my list?
posted by porpoise at 2:38 PM on August 9, 2006

Yay! Let's say Black Frog on Tuesday, August 15th at 8:00 p.m.
posted by lunalaguna at 4:15 PM on August 9, 2006

I guess I need to bring a little sign. You can see a picture of me on my page. Yeah, I plan to look like that next Tuesday. ;-)
posted by lunalaguna at 4:23 PM on August 9, 2006

Here's me, and here's Elizard, and also porpoise!
posted by Zack_Replica at 4:49 PM on August 9, 2006

Good idea, Zack.

I'll try to be there.

Where exactly is this Black Frog I may be going to...?
posted by birdsquared at 6:44 PM on August 9, 2006

Most copacetic for SkyTrain enabled perambulation. Spiffy.
posted by birdsquared at 8:02 PM on August 9, 2006

damn. my sister's visiting from out of town, and we'll be coming back from Galiano that night as it turns out. I'll have to change my status from 'Hell, Yes!' to 'er...maybe.'
posted by elizard at 4:43 PM on August 10, 2006

dunno if I can make it, as I'm going to Shine with a friend from Halifax (he's from here, but works in Halifax.) but I'll try.

put me down as "er...maybe" as well.

Hello...anyone still around?...

I can't make it to this meetup, but are any Vancouverites interested in going to the Snakes on a Plane premiere? I am organizing a big group of people that are going to the last show of the night on Friday Aug. 18 at the Paramount Vancouver.

Email is in my profile.
