Ottawa meet-up?

I'm here until the end of the month, so maybe next weekend? I don't know the scene here, so the floor is open.

This would be better than having to go to Montreal on February 29th!

There are several ways in which this could work. Next weekend is one of them.

Next Saturday is probably not workable for me, but what about Friday night (the 15th) or Sunday night (the 17th)?

I love Ottawa, but I'm stuck here in the cold.

Totally in, in towm for a week starting the 16th. :D

I would love this. Just about any weekend would be great.

Hey, okay! So next weekend looks like a possibility - although Friday night leaves out Phire and Saturday leaves out LN. Is Sunday possible? Anyone recommend a quiet-ish place/pub?

Vineyards had a totally cool vibe and we've done it there twice before.

I might be able to swing Friday night, though it would have to be after 9 PM methinks. Sunday is infinitely better.

So, Sunday at vineyards? We have a vote from Phire. Should we make the sidebar link and make it all official-like?

(ODiv, I was up there this summer. If I had known, I would have offerred to meet you at the wildcat.)

Please do. LN and I can probably make it.

So we've got tentative yeses from bonehead, LN, phil, myself and flibbertigibbet? :D *sidebars*

I seem doomed to never make an Ottawa mefi meet-up. They always seems to be when I'm out of town.

Have fun everyone!

*Gives aclevername a hug* Metatalk told me to :D

But no, seriously. When will you be in town?

Everybody, I'm going to try and make a reservation at Vineyeards for us under the name of "Metafilter" - if you arrive at the bar and can't find us, ask the bartender to point you to our table. :)
posted by LN at 6:21 AM on February 13, 2008

Ok, everyone, the reservation is confirmed at Vineyards at 7:30 pm, on February 17th, under the name "Metafilter". See you there!
posted by LN at 9:28 AM on February 13, 2008

You didn't make it under the name Matt Haughey? Aww, LN!
posted by Phire at 9:56 AM on February 13, 2008

You can always call the Vineyards and change the reservation, Phire! :)
posted by LN at 11:14 AM on February 13, 2008

Great. See you there.

We are still on, right? despite the storm and crappy weather?
posted by Phire at 1:03 PM on February 17, 2008

I am still interested, in spite of the weather. I'm leaving shortly.
posted by philfromhavelock at 2:54 PM on February 17, 2008

We're (Phil, LN, bonehead) in the bar...

Just ask for metafiler.
posted by bonehead at 4:56 PM on February 17, 2008

The staff didn't know where you were! However I stopped in after getting back from Montreal from a tournament so I am very tired, I couldn't have stayed long anyway. :)
posted by niccolo at 5:51 PM on February 17, 2008

As I told to Phire on the phone (where she told me people had actually respoded to thethreat after me, something which escaped my attention): god, I suck. Sunday is a sort of family night, and I forgot to mention it, then didn't see ANY updates.

Again, I suck. Hope it was fun!
posted by flibbertigibbet at 9:23 PM on February 18, 2008

Err. Told Phire.
posted by flibbertigibbet at 9:23 PM on February 18, 2008

Niccolo, seeing you post that makes me bloody angry. I instructed the bartender to mark us down as "metafilter", and I watched him write it down. There's no excuse on his part not to know where we were!
posted by LN at 6:04 AM on February 19, 2008

Hmm, the bartender knew where you were, that's how I found the table. Maybe the waitstaff didn't?
