Buggrit, millennium hand and shrimp!

I can't make it to Montreal this weekend, and I'd really like to meet you!

how far are you? i do day trips pretty much anywhere. : >

(This is a really last-minute trip up--sorry for no notice--i decided today to get away.)

how about Ottawa? it's only an hour and a half for me from Montreal. email me.

Hey. I'm in Montreal.

How about a specific date, location.

I'm easy and in the Plateau area.

sure--how about Thurs night? (or Fri.)

You pick a place--i'll find it--i like that neighborhood.

Any other Montrealers around? It's impossible to tell by userpage, i find.

There were a million places on that wide street--where the subway stops--was it ave du Mont Royal?
posted by amberglow at 8:36 PM on March 28, 2005

Yeah, ave Mont-Royal is the Plateau.

I live in Montreal, and I'm pretty broke but would consider stopping by if school things don't look to be interfering.

I'm not driving that far up; couldn't we just keep it at the Magician?

Have fun up there, am, ya roadtripper! ;)

So when are you coming to Toronto, amberglow? I'm pretty sure the Toronto MeFi cabal would devise some new secret ritual just for you.

Smart Dalek : >

i thought about Toronto, orange, but like the vibe of Montreal better--maybe in the fall?

ITheCosmos--drinks will be on me--Canada's one place where my money still goes further, thankfully. You guys pick a bar or something. (I was up and down that area for a Nuit Blanche thing a few years ago)

Well, if there IS something going on in Montreal I'd definitely come by.

If you want to do something on Mt-Royal ave, then my suggestion would be to meet at Bily Kun ( 354, avenue du Mont-Royal Est ).

Thusday? Time?
posted by furtive at 8:29 AM on March 29, 2005

definitely come, clevershark!

sure! how about 9 on Thursday at that place? earlier? I'm open to whenever--or happy hour? they have drink specials early : >

That place looks perfect--it's like the places we meet up in in NY--Bar Bily Kun: Featuring an unpretentious ambiance described by some as 'tavern chic', Bily Kun has become a permanent fixture on the Plateau scene since it first opened in 1998.
354, avenue du Mont-Royal Est
Montreal, QC H2T 1P9

maybe we should do it early? they have music later, so it might be too loud.

Un Meetup Quebecois! : >
posted by amberglow at 8:44 AM on March 29, 2005

Ha, I'd not call Bily Kun unpretentious (lots of black turtlenecks and hipster-glasses in evidence), but it's a nice place and the music's great.
posted by ITheCosmos at 10:49 AM on March 29, 2005

cool...just pick a time.
posted by amberglow at 11:04 AM on March 29, 2005

9pm is fine by me, so is 8pm if it accomodates more folks although I might run a bit late as I have an informal interview at 6pm followed by a big bowl of poutine (no, really).

So what's the technique for identifying mefites in a crowd?
posted by furtive at 5:17 PM on March 29, 2005

mmm..can't wait to have poutine again!

I fly out tom'w afternoon, and prob won't be online after noon tom''s a pic of meme (on the right with my eyes closed but not a terrible pic).

I guess i'll be at the bar at Bily Kun from 8:30 on?

Who's in? furtive, me, ITheCosmos, clevershark?

we'll do shoutouts en francais? quebecois?
posted by amberglow at 6:02 PM on March 29, 2005

oh, i'm staying here on Sherbrooke, so leave a message for "Evan from NY" if there are any change of plans.
posted by amberglow at 6:07 PM on March 29, 2005

I'll stop by if I'm able on Thurs. Everyone dress like Mathowie for identification purposes!
posted by Succa at 6:27 PM on March 29, 2005

cool, Succa! Look (or listen) for me. : >
posted by amberglow at 7:18 PM on March 29, 2005

(Succa, check your site's comments)
posted by amberglow at 7:22 PM on March 29, 2005

Before this gets swept off the front page: I'll see you all Thurs?
