Ottawa meetup, anybody? (take two) November 4, 2008 4:02 PM   Subscribe

Ottawa meetup rescheduled!

"While we are alive we should sit among coloured lights and taste good wines, and discuss our adventures in far places; when we are dead, the opportunity is past."

-- Jack Vance

So the 14th was not good, and the 7th bad, so the 21st it is!

Paddy Boland's, 8 pm, 21 November. Who is in?

Is this 101 Clarence Street, in the market? (I'm relatively new here in town.)

I'll try to remember, but if I do show up I'll be late.

Thanks for organizing this, by the way! It was very nice of you.

You guys are such flip floppers..

(I've, uh, been meaning to go to Ottawa since it's, y'know, just over there from here.)

Aw damn, I'll be just getting back from Denver and probably exausted + cranky + smelly.

I was at PB's at 9.30. The hostess showed me the table near the fireplace and said you had just left.

True enough -- Monday, stony Monday and I talked about language and travel (and, oddly, agriculture) for an hour and change and decided to call it a night circa 9:15 when it was clear no one else was coming. I trust the server followed my instructions to kick any latecomers in the shins.
