So I'm in Halifax, NS, Canada for work and I haven't been to a MeFi meetup ever. Anyone else here?

I'm here 'till early/mid August.

Failing a meetup I could use someone to go to a movie or two with. It's nice to know people outside of work.

I know of just one MeFite who lives in Halifax. He's mostly a lurker, so I don't like to out him, but I have emailed him the link for this thread. He does love pubbing, so keep your fingers crossed.

I used to live there, but we never had a meetup. I'm sure there are a few other Haligonian MeFites but I can't find a thread on it like I thought there was. If you're willing to jump 'filters, MonkeyFilter has a rather sizable Maritime population for such a small userbase, but again, can't find the post. No google-fu for me tonight.

Well I'll be home in Charlottetown for a couple weeks starting in late July. Have the meet up there :)

*raises hand* Present!

I never thought I'd see the day... Surely there are other Haligonians here? Can't be just me...

stray: We could meet in... New Glasgow or something. (I can't be sure from the map, but that seems like it'd be around halfway). I'm working quite a bit though, so I don't think I'd have the time to get out there. When I do have the time I'm back in New Brunswick with my girlfriend.

Ghost: Excellent. I knew someone would be here. Are you the mefite of whom swan was speaking or can we expect a third?

So what's there to do here?

No, that would be me. I've been outed by OS.

Ex-Torontonian, now living in Halifax. Well, actually Bedford, but close enough...

(and she's right, I live in pubs)

Okay well I'm up for a pub gathering or something. I could bring a camera for shout-outs as well.

I'm gone for the weekend though, back to New Brunswick. I'm returning sans automobile as well.

I can be reached @odiv.net (msn saforum (at) odiv (dot) net).

Oh good, spnx came out of the Halfigonian, fish-stuffed closet.

My work here is done.

Good work, orange swan.

okay, so I'm back in town now. I get off after 8 or 9 most nights and am right downtown.

Who wants to go to a pub?
