Montréal Meetup? Magnifique! May 3, 2008 2:10 PM   Subscribe

Magnificent May Montréal MeFi Meetup?

I am going to be in Montréal for a couple of weeks, in a week; and as I am told there has not been a Montréal meetup for a while, and the weather is getting warmer (and I'm going to be around), now seems like a fortuitous time to have one.

Since this will be my first time in Montréal, I shall defer location based decision making to locals <:

Anywho, I will be around from roughly May 10 through May 22. Being that I am a lady of leisure, whenever is fine with me; but, I suspect, the weekend in the middle makes sense; so I suggest vaguely in the direction of the 17th.

I would love to come but the 17th is exactly the weekend when I can't! How about Saturday the 11th?

Hmm, that date doesn't exist, sadly... Sunday the 11th?

(the 10th, which is a Saturday, is fine with me; as I arrive on Friday evening, incidentally)

Yes! If the weather is nice, I suggest beer & wine & snacks in parc Jeanne-Mance.

PS. I'm available any of those days.

Great idea, loiseau.
But according to the weather forecast, we should have an indoor back-up.

Not that I'll be there or anything, but I would humbly suggest St. Sulpice as a potential location. If it is nice, there's a great big courtyard in the back, and if it's not, then there is plenty of space inside as well!

I'm in if it's a weekend; I'm in Sherbrooke so weeknights are impossible for me. I'd love to meet some of you! Unfortunately the 17th works better for me than the 10th, but I imagine something will shake out one way or the other.

Shep! Would Sunday the 11th work for you?

(any objections from anyone else?)

The 11th would be okay, but Sundays always give me a built-in time limit of 8 p.m. (I need to get the bus back home to work Monday), whereas Saturdays are pretty open-ended timewise as I usually have a place to crash or the hostel.

...actually, I've had a few home disasters in the last 24 hours (the most serious being a glass shelving unit falling over and shattering) and I think that has killed the weekend for me. Sorry!

Okey dokes.

May as well stick with Saturday (: could someone do the add event thing? I'm a little handicapped by having an iPod touch for doing The Internets on..
