Curious, George: Ottawa Meetup!
An Ottawa meetup is finally being planned! Along with
, we're planning on Friday the 18th at Pub Italia. If that's no good, we can discuss alternatives [inside].

That would be this
, I presume. The more monk's the merrier.
I will be a maybe, as I may have to leave the province anytime. I would love to *see* folks.
I'll probably be there. Together with my Mefi alter ego.
Oh no, and I knew there'd be a good reason to go home this spring break. I'll have to miss this one!
Thanks for the link, bonehead - that be the one. Good with everyone? I went there once, it's pretty cool, great selection of beer. Hope you can make it, dxlifer and mare (who are you on MeFi?). And sorry to miss you, niccolo - so long as this one goes well, I think I might try to organize another one later in the year. :)
So close, and yet so far away.
I'm kika on Mefi. Because some lurker already took mare.
perhaps... perhaps... perhaps... I've spent a good deal away from the Monkey in the last year so not really into the community feel. Nice idea, though.
Sorry, Koko! And Rorschach, you're definitely still welcome to come, even if you've been away. :) The date is set now: the 18th at 7pm at Pub Italia. I'll post again if there's any changes!
set up for the event; if you plop your name on it, we'll know to reserve the right number of seats, though it's still just an estimate. :)
I'd have to over-nighter for this and haven't been to Ottawa for over ten years. Does anyone know, off-hand, if the U of O or any of it's offspring provide alumni accomdation?
Never heard of alumni accomodation, sorry. I'm at U of O right now and I can't think of where they would have the space for that. I'll give accomodation some thought, I hope you can come!
I wasn't thinking properly, there, livii. There is/was a system whereby alumni used to be able to rent accomadation in dorms, but that's during the summer. Since I hadn't thought that through properly and then made a triple post yesterday it's sorta obvious that my mental functions are running haphazardly. *menopausal moment again*
So where were you all ?!? I drove all the way up from Montréal and was there, albeit ten minutes late. I asked the waitress if she had a largish group in of Meta/Monkeyfilterites but she didn't know. There were only two parties over six and both had kids and people of old age, so they were probably families. I asked around a bit but nobody had even heard of Meta/Monkeyfilter. Then I looked again on my printed note and then on my watch and the reality of the moment finally sunk in. I was a week too early. No bananas for me. (I then went on a tour of Ottawa, trying to find a movie theatre but got terribly lost; which was kind of nice becaue when you are lost you come in places you'd never come otherwise. I slept at my parents in Law and the next day I went X-country skiing in Gatineau Park which was really nice. So please don't feel sorry for me.)
Oh mare, I'm so sorry! That totally sucks. I'm glad you had a nice time in Ottawa though; it was a beautiful day for outdoor activities on Sunday. Hopefully we'll see you next time.
