Calling all Winnipeggers I will be in the 'peg this weekend and would loooove to cause/organize a meetup if there's interest. Anybody?

I know it's short notice sorry! but I'm fairly flexible as to when and where (Friday evening - Sunday morning). I'll be staying in Transcona, but I'll have wheels. I imagine the Manitobians that can make it are a small contingent, but there's a potential for much hilarity and the chance to meet some new wonderful people...

The Toad in the Hole in Osbourne Village would be the place to do this... count me in. Anyone else?

My home town. I miss Winnipeg so much!

God I love that song. The Weakerthans really hit it right on :)

I'm going to be out of town for most of the weekend, but if a date and time get scheduled, I'll see what I can do!

So, sleslie, WD, when works for you? I'd be happy with the Toad in the Hole. I'm leaning towards Friday evening, but that's changeable if you have some other preferrence.

This is kinda small... and very Winnipeg-esque in its execution. Next time, we should join up with (gasp) fark or whatever to get some bodies.

Anyways, if 7pm at the Toad works for WD, it's a go.

Calling all Winnipeggers

That just sounds dirty somehow.

or maybe it's just me.

Feel free to invite other people from MonkeyFilter, Fark, offline, whatever. I'm not averse to that, just not a member at any of those sites, so it would seem a little weird for me to show up new and say "I'm from MeFi, come to a meetup". I'm happy w/7 @ the Toad.

I e-mailed you Shawn, and what I think WD's addy is. (though he has done a pretty good job of keeping it un-googleable). My e-mail is in my profile.

It's a go. We'll have a sign on our table that says "Matt Haugey" don't you feel special, Matt? Any other lurkers are welcome to join us!
