Calgary Christmas Doper Dinner


Hey guys, it's time for some yuletide Dopefestivities. We're planning a dinner on Saturday, Dec. 29 at a local Chinese food place. All Calgary Dopers are welcome to come out and socialize with a really fun, interesting group of people (I won't say cool, because we all know better than that). Dinner is planned for 6:30 pm at The Pavilion restaurant in Hawkwood.

If you're interested, my email address is in my profile (we need to book a reservation).

It looks like I'll be up in Edmonton for then, not sure exactly what day I'll be back so I'll have to miss this one.

Have fun though.

And a Merry Christmas to you all!

I was going to say a general welcome for all Calgary Dopers, to come hang out with a bunch of weirdos fun guys.

How can they not have ginger beef in the U.S., Ginger? Are you trying to convert everyone, like getting them all to drink that fine Canadian invention, the Bloody Caesar?

Funnily enough, there IS one person we've found who makes it. She's from Edmonton and she and her husband own a Chinese restaurant in Annapolis, which is the capitol of Maryland. I haven't been there yet; Dave sells health insurance (how un-Canadian!) and they're clients of his.

That would be fine - you're more than welcome to come out and play with us.
