Should we go drink and plan something together?

Or have a MSN conversation like last year lol.

I agree to this. We could like meet up and discuss the real meet up. It could be a pre-meet up meet up. I suggest we do it somewhere we will be going again for the real meet up. Practice makes perfect!

I added a few more people to that hub page, link below.

I'd also be down for the cirque soliel or whatever. I think as long as everyone ends up at the same pub or whatever in the evenings, it should be fine to have fragmented groups.

For instance, that Biodome is something cool to see if youve never been there, but if you have then it kinda isnt worth it (IMO), so if people want to do that then thats fine, we can just figure out a time to meet at a common place at a later point.

link stuff

I would assume all 25 of us who are on Luis's list - Assuming the list has been updated with all the dropouts being removed.

Its fairly up to date. I think realistically its probably at around 16/17. Though this is the first year we've been plugging meetups on the newgrounds facebook events so its hard to really pinpoint a solid number. Not everyone who clicked attending on the fb page is forthcoming of what their username is.

No because, once again, I'm stuck doing it because all the guys + sam are lazy. I finish school on June 3rd, so there will be no event schedule until then. Most likely, during the day, we'll set up a list of different events to do and everyone goes their own way, and in the evening, we get together again.

I'd really like to see cirque du soleil (5pm showing on saturday), but I haven't gotten enough responses and there's no way I'm buying a bunch of tickets for everyone then not getting re-imbursed. So even with that, we would go together and sit in different sections.

Anyone wants to go here: http://www.pubdistillerie.com/v2/index.p hp
Apparently it's some place where they give you a giant-ass drink in a mason jar for 20 bucks. One of my friends is a bouncer there.

We could meet there friday night, or we could meet at that other place: http://www.lesaintbock.com/html/accueil.
html

You know the spot with all the different beers and whatnot. SO TASTY.

Another place that rules: http://www.sharx.ca/
Drunk bowling? Yes please.

I'm guessing people will most likely just hang out at their hotel rooms getting drunk and playing games again so BLAH. Maybe you could go eat at at sushi shop, those places are RAD.

And like Luis said, if you want to go to the BioDome it's boring the second time around so.. yeah if you haven't been please get with other people if you'd like to go and sort it out.

The fun thing to do is always to just walk around drunk on St-Denis / St-Catherine, and then eat at that McDonald's that is crowded at 3am. What else can ya do eh?

Holy shit you live so close to me.

As for driving to Montreal; it's much cheaper to take the Greyhound, since you won't have to pay for hotel rooms or your own fuel - I will be flying with my boyfriend though.

== Oh yeah, let's not forget: Saturday Night is Karaoke night.
TRADITION MAN

== Saturday afternoon:

If anyone is interested, Montreal has a bike rental system: https://montreal.bixi.com/rouler-a-bixi/
fonctionnement

You need a credit card to rent them.
It's 10$ a day I think. Something like that. I think you can rent by the hour. All you need to do is find a station with bikes near the hotel and grab one. Woohoo.

We can ride around town on bikes if temperature permits. I can take you to the bike paths and you can visit Old Montreal, the river and the harbor. That would be something more interesting to do than bum around the hotel on Saturday afternoon at least.

Other people can go to the BioDome if they want, or La Ronde ( Six Flags amusement park ) but it seems like kind of a waste to be there half a day. There's also shopping malls... obviously.. if anyone wants to do that. You can go buy some candy or chocolates at one of the billion candy stores in this city.

Well I don't eat out much so if you have any suggestions, feel free. Otherwise we could just pick a big restaurant like Nickels or St-Hubert near the hotel and make a reservation for Friday night. Something like a buffet usually please everyone too, so there's that : p
Only one I know of is this Indian one: http://www.buffetmaharaja.com/
It's alright but not within walking distance of the Square Victoria hotel, which is where the NG people stay usually...also it's big enough. Yep.

Maybe also make one for Saturday night near the Karaoke Place?
Did the Karaoke place take reservations? I forget. I thought it did...

I guess having that morning shower does make all the difference.

Also, I have this theory that people can drive without stopping at a hotel if they bring a bunch of people and have them take turns driving every few hours around the clock. More people = shorter turns.

Besides, I smoke cigarettes, and I can't go to long without, and the restroom on the Greyhounds be stanky.

If they caught you smokin' in the bus's washroom, they will kick you off at the next stop. However, they stop quite often for 5 minute smoke breaks, so no big deal - I don't smoke BTW.

Abby, aye?

I've been living there since the summer of '91, and Coquitlam before that. And Poland before '87, I think.

I live in Surrey, you know, 'cause I'm hardcore n'stuff.

How long you live there for?

I remember the last year we went, you guys had called ahead. I imagine saturday is pretty popular so itd be good to do that sooner rather than later. Last year we did the karaoke thing on friday. Dont remember if it was because it was easier to get reserve for a group that big or because thats when people wanted to do it. We did come up a few seats short, last year. I think i was on the outside table, which wasnt terrible but yea wouldnt hurt to nail down the number better, maybe overshoot it by a head or two.

Also for anyone wondering, i decided id stay at the same place as every year, that square phillips hotel or whatever. Gonna drive up this year. I have a long haul flight a few days before this meet so maybe ill appreciate being on the ground for a change. I'll bring mike to keep me company.

Yeah it'll be a leisurely stroll unless everyone who does it is somehow in good enough shape :p
No one will get lost though, don't worry.

So ok, Karaoke Friday night? Is that good for everyone?

Say from like 7pm on?
Should we get a place to eat too or will people just all meet at the Karaoke?

The Indian buffet is within walking distance (5mins) of the Karaoke and there's plenty of room there for everyone.

==========================

Oh there's also SSchwartz's.

Basically all they serve is smoked meat. The most ridiculously awesome smoked meat in the universe. If anyone feels like going there on Saturday for lunch, I definitely recommend it, though there's sometimes a bit of wait. It's a 10-15 minute walk from the nearest metro station.

Can't fit the entire group in there but if a smaller group wants to go, it's worth it. One of the things to do in Montreal.

======

As for Saturday night so far my best suggestion is bumming around St-Denis street to see if any bar will have enough room.

Schwartz's was imo a huge disappointment afrom someone who came from growing up with parents who used to live in quebec, and thus is used to REAL montreal smoked meat - theirs was like.. roast beef.

Dunns is a much better place for montreal smoked meat.

Also I still wanna go to cirque and biodome.. as well as personally visiting concordia university to see the portraits of my parents on the walls in there.

I assume they just put fedoras and whips on all of the little trilobite fossils and use that to lure people inside.

Because archeology suddenly includes paleontology somehow.

There are 3 of them, but they're insanely small and packed on weekends, so we can forget about that. It's a shame though cause their drinks are awesome!

I think it was because they don't take reservations on Saturday, but I'm not 100% sure about it. I'll try to call them this weekend to ask.

That would be an awesome plan B option for those who don't want to go see the Cirque du Soleil show actually, since they're both next to each other.

Ok I made a reservation at the Buffet for Friday June 17th at 6pm, for 15 people.

So the plan is to eat there and head to the Karaoke bar afterward. I don't know if that sounds too early for you guys, I can change it up later.

Well, I just called the karaoke place and they don't take reservations anymore (too much hassle they say), so the earliest we get there the better. Which means that going early to that Indian place is a good idea.

There is a slim chance I'll be bringing another two people, so you have been warned.
