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.

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.
Only problem is that those bars (cause I think there's atleast two now) are really small.

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!

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.

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.

Me neither, so we can stay behind and entertain the people who can't afford it.

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.

Now that the Chicago meet is over...

This is the next one on the list. And it's only less than three weeks away!

Can't wait.

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.

They have other stuff there like pizza, fried chicken, salad and so on.

You can just eat all desserts too, which I heavily recommend.

I feel kind of behind on all of this because I was unsure of my summer plans until rather recently and I didn't want to waffle for 4 months with "maybes" in this thread.

But I feel that at this point, I may as well open myself up for the suggestion of attending the meet this month.

I can find a flight to Montreal for <$350 and I've got money in the bank for once to do this trip right (I've learned to a) exchange cash BEFORE leaving, even if the bank wants to charge a nominal fee, b) spending cash is nice but it's not all too much more to use the visa/mastercard from the bank either and c) get a multi-day subway pass.)

If anyone is willing to put me up from Thursday night to Monday morning/afternoon I would greatly appreciate a PM.

Dude, you should totally go this year - It's been just over 7 years since we last met!

My partner and I will be there on those days, but we may be busy doing touristy things.

Oh, and here's a pic for nostalgia's sake:

I grew up pretty close to Montreal. In high school, when one of us would turn 18 we would do a trip to Montreal because the drinking age is lower there. I've done plenty of touristy things, but I think you and your partner would like the Biodome (so long as you aren't sick lolMTLMeet2008).

Oh, and here's a pic for nostalgia's sake:

We were so far ahead of the curve back then, weren't we? That was the best trip I took growing up. I flew out there to go to Whistler mountain. I skied almost every day (except that day, of course) my hotel was the one highest up the mountain and had ski-in ski-out access and the village at the base of the resort was totally awesome. And to top it all off, I went to what was sure to be a rape/murder in Vancouver on a greyhound and got treated to a day of getting our rich on in a limo and walking on the beach instead. And since I didn't tell my dad what I was doing, he had freaked out and even called the mounties!

OK, so far I have been offered a couch and a map to explore Montreal alone. That's a tasty offer. I'm still open for bids of free hookers and Timmy Hortons maple doughnuts.

I have officially moved from the "maybe" pile to the "definite" orgy...

The cheapest flights were all Thursday to Monday and I imagine most airlines are that way so if anyone else is in my boat we can do some pre and post meetup tailgating or sumshit (I arrive Thursday at like 5pm and leave at 12pm on Monday.)

So glad that next year I'll finally be old enough to partake in one of these fine meets.

Fuck, you can't even purchase booze in Saskatchewan until you're 19.
