I'll act as the central contact person for anyone who wants to attend. E-mail me at the address on my user page and I'll give you my cell number so that you can ask for directions, let us know you're running late or if you just want to scream at someone while driving around looking for parking on a Friday night.

Also check out Doolin's virtual tour thingy — you can tell they're an authetic Irish pub because a) they have a map of Ireland on the wall and b) they serve Guinness

Sorry about last night. That was tough to watch.

I would just like to go "See? There's nothing wrong with having a meetup in an Irish Pub." at all the MeFiMeetAmsterdam people.

an Irish pub wouldn't have been as good as that Engelbewarder place, IMHO--and they're Canadian anyway--what do they know? ; >

So sad, I am going to be in Vancouver - the week after. :(

Mark this East Coast visitor as a "maybe". I'm in the Van for several days, so I'll give it a shot if I get my bearings after a trip to the mountains.

I'm never around for any of my local meetups, so might as well try a foreign port.
posted by myopicman at 7:59 PM on April 20, 2004 might be worthwhile taking you next week out to UBC to the Pit Pub if only for the sci-fi in-joke of Quatermass and the Pit.

*debates informing Quartermass that it's actually spelled Quatermass, then thinks better of it*

There's nothing so special about the special guest, folks.

Anyone from Seattle driving up to this?

I would still really like to go to the Yale and listen to some good blues.

I'm teaching a class Friday nights in Burnaby :( Have a beer for me? Cheers...

Things don't start at the Yale until 9:00, Mr. Fish. If we're still rollin' by then maybe we can stagger the three blocks up Granville.

Or maybe we should crash sharpener's class.

Crashing the class would be a lot of fun... imagine the chaos we could create. I'll make a call to the local media, see if we can get live TV coverage and all that.

So did we scare you into cancelling class, sharpener?
