So I'm covered from Friday to Sunday on the hotel, but not for Thursday when I arrive. Would anyone local be cool with having me spend that one night at their place. I swear, I won't tell anyone so your cool reps will remain intact.

I have a comfy couch-bed, but since I'll be working Friday in the morning, you'll have to leave early and find your way downtown to meet the others.

Well, depends what there is...They're talking about the night life at the moment. During the day, we haven't decided what to do. Some people like to spend money, others don't. It makes organizing this meeutp quite hard.

Evark is +1 non attendee and, at last count, +2 accounts. I didn't actually read the list 'cause I'm tired and a douchebag like that.

Anyone who is willing to hit up the botanical garden... thing, I'm down for that. I went in the winter the last time I was there and I'm told the outdoor stuff is pretty cool. I'm also down for just walking around during the day. Touristy things are cool.

36Holla and Gunter 45 are coming, for sure.

OK - Sounds like I have to put together the activities....
Here's a few choices. I need everyone's opinion on each activity (good, too expensive, not interested, etc) so I can organize this. In general, the cooler the option, the more expensive it is....

Thursday - June 3

Beerfest: The whole reason WHY we put it on this weekend. Although it sounds great, it's actually ridiculously crowded on Friday and Saturday nights. Those that really want to go to Beerfest should really be coming up Thursday. So far, it looks like Chrispington, Afro-Ninja, Gunter45, probably 36Holla and I will be hitting up Beerfest Thursday evening. Other Montrealers will surely join in.

We could go again during the weekend, but I highly recommend starting early on Saturday afternoon, or else our group will be unmanageable in the crowds.

Entrance: FREE
Coupons: 1$ each
Drink (4 oz): 1-5 coupons each, but most need 2-3.

Friday - June 4

Knowing that most people are coming up this day, there might not be much organized during the day. Those coming up Thursday will likely be hung-over most of the morning/afternoon, so we'll probably take it easy and watch movies or something at my place.

6 PM: Meeting time for all NGers.
I'll be at some restaurant. Depends what people want. I'd say 3 Amigos because it's cheap, but hey, we could also just go to a general burger place. I need to know what people like to eat before deciding this one. How many people want Montreal smoke meat? How many are vegetarians? Etc

We can also have a BBQ at my place, as I have more deck space than space INSIDE my house. There's a grocery store down the street and everyone can pick what they want. We have cheap beer at the depanneur (aka corner store). It's 14.70$ (tx inc.) for a 12 pack.
SO PPL - CHOOSE BBQ OR RESTAURANT.

Most people will be subjected to poutine this evening (at my house or at the restaurant). You have no choice. If you haven't been to Montreal yet, your initiation is eating poutine. Sorry, it is tradition and we can't break it.

After this, we'll probably bar hop. We could go to Brutopia again, or the cyder place, or even check out the French bars (like St-Elizabeth!). If we want to be outside, we'll have to get there early (like 8pm for St-Elizabeth...maybe later for St-Sulpice).

Why not a particular Montreal thing today? Because from past meet-up experience, everyone new to this will be shy. We need to booze in our systems to socialize and get to know everyone. We could organize karaoke this evening as well, but we need to find a place that rents out rooms (please help Montrealers?).

Saturday - June 5

Morning: off. About 12:30-1pm, we'll meet at the Beerfest (or closest metro station, which is Bonaventure). We'll see how the crowds are and check out some beers from around the world. Everyone from out of province needs to try some Quebec beer. It's mandatory.

I know it's early to drink, but it'll get crowded neat 4-5pm. At this point, we could go play some Laser Quest .
Regular: 8.50$/game
3 games for 19$
At 10:20pm on Fridays and Saturdays, for 12$, there's a 30 minute game (aka longer game).

We can also stroll around old Montreal now or after Laser Quest. Tons of restaurants to choose from in the old Montreal area. However, they tend to be more on the expensive side (20-30$/meal +tx + tip).

Afterwards, we'll go to a bar, party at the hotel or we can come drink at my house (i'm not downtown though...).

Sunday

Easy day Sunday. We can go to the Botanical gardens and insectariums near 12-1pm.
Regular - Adult 16.50$/Student 12.50$
Quebec resident - Adult 14$/Student 10.50$
Group rate (at least 15 people) - 12.00$/person
With Insectarium - Adult 26.50$/Student: 20.00$

Other options for day time activities:

Jet boating or Rafting on the Lachine canal: 50 and 41$ respectively, + taxes My parents did this once and loved it. They came back soaking wet, so just come prepared.

Laser Quest can always be moved to the Friday or the Sunday as well.

Other options for restaurants:

Montreal is known for its culinary, but to really go to a GOOD restaurant, you got to dish out the money. There's one restaurant I've always wanted to go to: O.Noir. Basically, you eat in total darkness. There's blind waiters that serve you. Without your vision, it's supposed to enhance your taste, hearing and touch senses. They'll even cut your food into awkward shapes to fool you into thinking it's something different. However, it's expensive at like 30-40$/meal.

That's all I got for now. I'm open to other options if you know any.

That'd be much appreciated. I'll message you later about the details of when I arrive and all that.

The only thing missing really is the karaoke, which needs to return this year. I suggest Saturday night for that. Also, spending an evening at La Ronde (I think it's cheaper past 5) would be cool.

Yea the karaoke place we went to last year was awesome, i dont remember the name but they had pitcher beers that were cheap and it wasnt that crowded. I dont recommend karaoke places where you have to rent rooms. It gets mega expensive with 30 some people. The tab for the new york one was 800 dollars.

Hey I know where it's at. It's a short walk you'll see!

Well, we made a reservation for about 15 people last year, we'll have to see if we're gonna be able to do it again for 30 this year.

I don't know the name either, but yeah, I go there all the time. FYI, it's really popular nowadays and if you want any chance of getting a spot for 30 people, you'd better be there at like 7 or 8. The beer's still cheap though, and I do believe you can make reservations for that amount of people anyways. I was there Friday night, and there was some social or something that took up the entire front of the bar.

I wouldnt mention 30, most places will flat out say no, cause its such a large number. Just say a group of 20 or something, and if we do end up with 30 then they can just crowd around. Its not like we're ordering food there anyway, i wouldnt care about having to be sitting all the time.

Or we could just get a group to go there earlier and just kinda slowly take over that place. Would also probably be good idea to see which day its less jammed, like maybe move that to Friday instead of Sat night if it makes more sense.

I kind of feel like 30 is a very optimistic number. But i guess i could be wrong.
