Vancouver Meetup?

I have claimed, on many,many,many occasions that I will be at a meetup, but, as yet, have not showed. I'm not so flaky as to not turn up for one I've organised myself, surely? (I'm not.) Anyone interested?

I'm always interested, but I can't always attend.

How about Thursday 24th, 8pm, at The Black Frog or Irish Heather?

I will do my best.

I'm always booked Thursdays, but hope to make one of these things eventually.

Short notice, but I can probably be there...

[The 24th is a Wednesday].

I did mean in 2008, rossination. I like to give people plenty of time to prepare for these things.

(ok, yes, I am unable to use a simple calendar correctly, you got me.)

Can't make a meetup (blast!) but shameless plug: a really fun/gory/cake-fighty play that i'm in opens at UBC on thursday, Big Love by Charles Mee (there is a previous FPP on his work, I believe). See Theatre@UBC for deets.

No-go for me, I'm afraid... I've got a seminar I have to do work for on Wed & Thurs. Maybe the next meetup...

Wed, I can't, thursday, I can.

Oops - I'm going snowboarding on Wednesday evening.

How about Wed 31st if that means more people can attend?

I'm good whenever. So can we have some consensus on when whenever is?
posted by mock at 2:32 AM on January 23, 2007


I would also like to hear the official line on when "whenever" is, so I can show up.

Is there any free beer included in this offer? I heard no mention yet, but can't hurt to ask surely?

I can't come next week unless you move it to La PeƱita de Jaltemba, Nayarit, Mexico.

Not that I'm committing to come this week.

Whenever is now: Jan 31st, 8pm, Black Frog...
posted by Jon Mitchell at 6:03 PM on January 23, 2007


where is the Black Frog?? I'm penciling in the date into my calendar
posted by seawallrunner at 8:19 PM on January 23, 2007


And the free beer, Jon?
posted by Meatbomb at 8:52 PM on January 23, 2007


It's here, in Gastown. I've never been, personally, but a few of the previous meetups have been held here, and they spoke well of it. If it's insalubrious, we could always move to the Irish Heather, but I'm sure it'll be fine...
posted by Jon Mitchell at 8:53 PM on January 23, 2007


OK, MB, I'll get the first pitcher in, how does that sound?

Mmmm.....beeribery.
posted by Jon Mitchell at 2:08 AM on January 24, 2007


I will be there, now that the free beer issue has been clarified.
posted by Meatbomb at 10:13 AM on January 24, 2007


When I ever get up the courage to go socialize in meatspace, I'll SOO try and make it.
