Calgary Mini Dope-fest

Well, fellow Calgarians, we have a time and a place. GingerOfTheNorth is going to be in town the weekend of July 8 + 9, and the plan is to go to the Thai Chili Club on Saturday, July 8, 7:00 pm.

I’ll be making a reservation for anyone who wants to come out and meet (or get re-acquainted with) the illustrious Ginger. You’ve got about a week to decide if you want to come out and have fun, or if you want to be a big poopie head and stay home. Your choice. :smiley:

Okay, so clearly this was posted right around the time I sent you that email. The one saying that the next weekend would be better if we could include a crazy redhead.

New plan - everything the same except the date - Saturday, July 15.

Grrrrrrrrrate! I’m totally there.

Ummmm, Lemon Grass Prawns, ummmmm…

OH PLEASE, like I’m letting you leave after just some prawns. I’m in Canada to make you fat.


I have no problem with that, whatsoever. :smiley:

We have two more joining: Kwyjibo and his lovely wife, both of whom no longer post.

Sounds like fun. Count me in!

[sub]I’ll even make sure I wear bells, just for you featherlou[/sub]

Okay, sounds good. Anybody else?

Me too please :slight_smile: The downtown one right?

The one on 11th avenue SW (want to make sure my idea of downtown is the same as yours). I thought you not coming out for food was a little unusual, Gut. :smiley:

Yep, that’s the place. Not downtown core but not the location near me. I’ll see you guys there :slight_smile: and you’re right, I rarely miss an opportunity to eat :smiley:

Driftwood will probably be along too. Alice and Gut met him at Moxie’s at the teenie weenie (hee hee) Dopefest in 2001. JESUS IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME.

Whoops, sorry for yelling there. I’m excited. Camping with Dopers in Glacier Park this weekend and then more Dopers in a couple of weeks. Woot!

I know what you mean, about being excited about meeting Dopers. I haven’t met any yet that I didn’t like. I guess there’s a reason that we all keep coming back to these ol’ boards. :slight_smile:

Glad to see it’s not cancelled. Serious Lark and I were planning on attending, and I had remembered the date as being today. I think we can make it next week.

I’m looking forward to seeing everyone again and meeting Ginger!

Hey, trupa, I was wondering about you and Serious Lark! Glad to have you on board.

So, with all of the people involved, do you think that maybe we should go somewhere a little less formal? Somewhere we can sit and hang out for hours, rather than Chili Club (which is a pretty upscale environment). Also, beef and beer. Or a damned good burger. I’m happy to get lunch there, but it’s really not a hang-out kinda place.

Not a bad idea, Ginger.
For a hang-out kinda place with excellent burgers, I would recommend Tipperary’s Pub on 16th Avenue. We’re regulars there - it’s smokefree on one side, but you can go smoke on the other side if there are any smokers in the group. Pool tables, dart boards, big-screen tv’s, the usual (and scantily-clad waitresses, for those of us who care about that. :smiley: )

What say you all? Should we go with majority rule? Who wants thai food, and who wants to go hang out for an evening?

I go where the food is. I don’t care where :slight_smile:

What a weekend to be in Vancouver.
Have a great time, all!
