That being said, if you wanted to go, but didn't have a ride, you may split gas with me, and deal with it from there. If you don't have gas money when I arrive in Quebec, I LEAVE WITHOUT YOU.

Which shouldn't be an issue, if you brought your wallet/purse/crotchpocket.

Anyways, it's a yearly excursion I do for my Canadian kin, so if anyone wants to tag along, get ahold of me. There's about 3-4 spots available in my car, which is not the beast of yesteryears some may remember, it's a much more spacious vehicle so lots of room and such.

sweet!

Dude I live in hamilton - I'll so ride with you if you got space for me ^^

er.. only one problem though - I've only taken friday and monday off, so if you are passing thru hamilton on thursday before 4:00 pm I'm probably screwed..

I have my tickets booked and will be arriving Friday afternoon. JordanD convinced me to come. Will be fun to meet a lot of you NG'ers, especially since I am sure no one recognizes my name :P

Also, being a Canadian already, I am familiar with the poutine. However, I am not at all opposed to a fat-ass Montreal poutine in front of me at some point. I don't know how different they are, but the fact that it's mandatory makes me think they're amazing(ly gross).

FBIpolux: Themasterkid lives in MTL...so I think he's coming (without the ???). Also, why isn't Dez on that list?

Just my two cents here but I've been to O'Noir for a couple of parties and it's not that the experience is something you should miss out on. Thing is that for the price they charge for a full meal and the fact that I lost half my food makes it a maybe in my opinion.

If we go, it'll probably be on the Thursday night. Smaller group andit's less noisy than on Friday and Saturday. Going once is probably worth it. Losing half your food is your own fault though. :P

Which laser tag place do you guys plan on going to? LaserQuest on St-Catherine's.

Yep.

Anyone who is going to be using cabs while in Montreal send me a PM I could arrange something for you. But I would suggest using the BMW. Bus Metro Walk, a 3 day pass for public transit is 14$.

Does that include the price of the Opus card (3.50$)? Also - THERE'S A NEW BUS LINE GOING FROM THE AIRPORT TO THE METRO. 747. It's 7.50$ I think. Gets you to Metro Lionel-Groulx in 10 min (longer if there's traffic). Much, much cheaper than a taxi and once you're on the metro line, it's easy to get around.

As for the activities, anything that might be fun. I don't really care what we will do, but it still important to do an activity list. If there is fun and good times involved, i'm in.

It can also get you to Berri-UQAM, depending on where your hotel is.

Suggestion for beer:

Skip the beer fest, it sucks ass. A bunch of us should go to a special convenience store and pick up bottles. I'd rather pay 2-3 bucks a bottle than 2-3 bucks per glass ( which amounts to 10 dollar beers. Think about that, you're paying 10 dollar a beer and you're not even sitting in front of a naked chick dancing around a pole? Fuck that )

We have a wide selection of beers available that visitors will have never tasted, I guarantee it.

I agree we skip Beerfest on Saturday, but I still want to go on Thursday night for sure, cause no matter how wide is the selection of beers in any convenience store, it will never be as wide and interesting as Beerfest.

Bah.

The thing is that even if you find one you like at the beer fest, you can't even buy it here anyway. Such teasing...

That one pub or whatever we went to at the beginning of last year's meet was good. I would like to hit an interesting microbrew/pub at some point, some of us are on vacationnn.

Getting a flight of beers was one of my favorite times during last year. I'm also voting yes on going to a microbrewery if it's possible.

Warrickneff (??)

So again, people marked of a (??) are the people that I have no clue who they are, don't know if they are actually coming, haven't bought their ticket yet or found a way of transportation yet or simply haven't confirmed their presence recently.

I haven't really shown my presence recently, and have not found a mode of transportation yet. I'm still in the running to come, but I need to make sure that I get time off work on Friday - maybe Monday too if I have to. I'm in the same position as Chrom basically... I'd need a ride from Jonas and I would also need a post 4:00 pm pickup on Thursday.

I'll keep you updated... I do check this topic every few days and I'll let everyone know once I've decided either way.

Honestly, a group of over 30 ppl in a Montreal microbrewerie is NOT going to happen unless we split the group into 2 or 3 smaller groups.

Actually, bringing a group around that size to ANY bar will practically be IMPOSSIBLE if the Habs make the Stanley Cup playoff. So far, it's looking that way...

wee should just make a general gameplan and let people make smaller groups if it comes to that. We can always gather back later. Seems impossible to find a place atleast one person doesn't have a problem with.

we can just play it by ear. We can have a vague plan and the some people may naturally form groups based on what's going on. I recall a past Montreal meet where some people went to a hookah bar and some didn't and we eventually gathered at a cider house or something
