Yes, this is probably too short a notice for most people. No, don't feel bad if you can't come. Fret not, there will be other meetups in the future. Of that you can be certain, grasshopper.

Hmmm. Vegas or Canada, Vegas or Canada. Wow, such a difficult decision. It's like Candy or Nails In My Eyes.

I'll be there, Anti!

Instead of slot machines, we'll have scratch-and-wins.
Instead of watered-down drinks, we'll have fresh pints of microbrew.
Instead of Siegfried & Roy, we'll have Hockey on TSN.

Plus, there'll be BALLOONS!

Top that you Vegas-loving freaks!

Oh yeah? Well we have KARAOKE! Friday night. 9pm, at Ellis Island, in Las Vegas. I think ebk might be singing the old standard "Nails Get in Your Eyes". And mefiers local to the area might want to swing by and see if they can spot us.

And I'm thinking perhaps later on another MeFiVan at a Giants game would be simply groovy.

I knew there was a reason why I chose NYC over MeFiVegas.

Oh shit, I'll be in Vancouver that night on a trip, I just may stop by.

...and it looks like it'll be just a few short blocks from my hotel, so I'm almost positive I'll be there.

Well, that evening there's an opening I'm most likely attending (I mention it 'cause it's work by Caterina who still comes around here sometimes, I think), but I will do my best to be there. And not to cause offense to anyone else here, but the opportunity to meet our fearless leader doesn't happen every day, now does it.

Hold it--5:07 p.m.?

Uh, okay. Go to antimefivegas first, then.

Meanwhile, I'll sit and mope in the Okanagan, so close to a Mefi meetup, yet so far (5 hours drive) away...

# | this café, it serves beer, no?

Yes, this café serves alcoholic (and non-alcoholic) beverages of all sorts. Also, their chicken wings are very, very tasty.
