    Darn flu bug has me down for the last two days so I must cancel my attendance. Hopefully we can have another chance to get together for some dancing and fun in the new year. Have a great time everyone!

    Just now jumping in on this...I haven't met any of you and am wondering...is it too late to join you tomorrow night?

    December 30, 2013

    • Nathalie V.

      Yes, please join us... it's not too late! Please meet us at 7:30 PM at the lobby of the hotel - from Nathalie (creator/organizer). We'll have FUN!

      Hi Nathalie! Feel a little odd joining in at this late date but the person I was going to spend New Year's with has laryngitis - so here I am! I'm usually in bed by 10, so will likely leave early. Looking forward to meeting you all.

    I suppose I am piping up thinking of future events...... I am not coming for other reasons ( see below ), but if I were, I would find this statement confusing:"Hard to all go in as a group though... I will leave it up to the individuals' responsibility." If it was left up to me to get in on my own, I may as well not have signed up for this group event and just rocked on up on my own , you know? My request ( if I were still coming ) and suggestion ( seeing as I am not ) is : could the group gather at 7 45, and if the group can't all get in to Bart's then perhaps look for another venue...( turning up late is another matter, and yes ought to be an individual issue )

    Just suggested that if you don't want to spit up. Because it's a last evening a lot of local could be there very early.

    December 29, 2013

    • Carole

      define "very early" for locals to get there? 4pm? 5pm?

      December 30, 2013

  • Stephen John H.

    Hello everyone, Bart's doesn't close tomorrow at all so no line out. Doubles is open too. Once Bart's is full there's no chance of getting in.

    December 30, 2013

  • John

    Ok...just stating not trying to change the venue at all :)

    Anyone up to meeting for a quick snack before Barths? Still planning to be there for 7:30 - 7:45

    December 30, 2013

  • Jim

    So, tickets are not pre-sale, we need to line up? What is the cost? Does it include food? Thanks, Jim

    December 29, 2013

    • Nathalie V.

      Hi Jim! Yes, it's free - dancing only - you'll need to eat before, I recommend that you show up at 7:45 PM. Nathalie

      December 29, 2013

  • Stephen John H.

    Hi everyone, Bart's is a local of mine. NYE is the last night before Bart's closes for 6 months. Once it's full there's no chance of getting in. They are strict with capacity. I suggest you go together as a group. Happy New Year

    December 29, 2013

    • Nathalie V.

      Hello Stephen! Will you be joining us? Yes, I found out yesterday that Bart's will close for 4 months. Thanks for the reminder to get there early. That's what Sandi and I (Nathalie) have emphasized in the ad... Hard to all go in as a group though... I will leave it up to the individuals' responsibility. Happy New Year to you too!

      December 29, 2013

    • Carole

      Stephen, by getting there for 7:45pm or 8pm...will the place be filled to capacity already? If so, what time do you suggest?

    December 28, 2013

    • Nathalie V.

      Hello Tracey! Good to know you will join us :) Please arrive early to make sure you don't have to line up... 7:45 PM or so...

      December 28, 2013

  • Kim W.

    Starting a New Year,enjoy meeting people and enjoy ourselves.Really looking to that last minute. Come an enjoy the beginning of a new year. Thanks,see you all there Kim

    December 27, 2013

    • Nathalie V.

      Hello Kim! Good to know that you will join us :) To avoid lining up outside, I recommend that you arrive at 8 PM.

      December 27, 2013

  • Carole

    Hopefully this pub has dancing people for that is what I want to do most on New Years Eve :-))

    December 24, 2013

    • Nathalie V.

      Hello Carole! Glad to know that you are interested in this event! Well, I sure will dance! With the band Rock Steady playing and being NYE, I am sure that people will dance. Please join us as of 8 PM to avoid a line-up.

    New Years Eve Decades of Rock Younger Than Yesterday, Free Ride, Rock Of Ages @ Soprano's (No Minors) 8 $10/$15 [ticket locations] This is happening New Years Eve also, I got a Ticket soI have to go.

    December 17, 2013

    • Nathalie V.

      Hi Alan! Sure I understand... Sandra also suggested that venue (among many others). And I love the band Younger then Yesterday :) The only problem is that I live in James Bay and I don't have a car... Also, I would like to combine dinner & dancing, so Bart's and Strath are better options in that respect... Anyhow, what about New Year's Day... What are you up to? I have no family nor children, so I am scratching my head trying to find fun things to fo... And I am a fun person, smart, educated... and modest ;)

      I did not change the venue or even MENTION university heights cinema in ANY way. Denise.

  • Dominique

    Hi,

    I just wanted to poke my nose in here for a bit. Please don't make changes to the event unless you created it. As it stands this was a dinner and dancing event suggested by Nathalie (I believe) and some other suggestions have been made along the way. If you'd like to arrange a different event please create a new Meetup for it.

    Nathalie, please update this event description to the latest decision, as it currently doesn't describe a dinner component, is this accurate?

    Dominique

    December 23, 2013

  • Nathalie V.

    No reservations can be taken, so please arrive early...

    December 19, 2013

  • Sandra

    It started as dinner & dancing, but the person named Denise below made the venue University heights cinema. I'm waiting to hear from Nathalie as she started the event. We were planning to meet later this week to discuss venues.

    December 16, 2013

    • Sandra

      Oh sure, the more the merrier! And we do have a total of 6 so far in the meetup here, so that would make 7. Let's meet for coffee - I am off Wednesday and sunday, and during the day on saturday. We can try to finalize the plans. Strath sounds good, and bartholomew's. We're going to have to get there early...

      December 17, 2013

    • Nathalie V.

      Yes, we'll have to get there early, either at Bart's or at The Strath... Since I am new at this meet up situation, please tell me how we got to 6 people so far...?! You are the only one who replied to me directly with a positive response. Meeting you for coffee will be difficult this week... How about Monday Dec 23? Should we still go for supper beforehand on the 31? I would like that...

      December 17, 2013

  • Sandra

    Sorry small typo below...it should say 'It's not right or fair...'

    December 15, 2013

    • Nathalie V.

      Yes, Sandra... I figured that it's what you mean :)

      December 16, 2013

    • Nathalie V.

      Hi again Sandra! You asked me what type of music I like : pop/rock, 60's, 70's, disco, dance, etc... NOT : country nor heavy metal... I am also tempted by the Empress NYE package which is a gourmet buffet and dancing, but it's very expensive : 160 $ Looking forward to hearing your ideas... N V :)

      December 16, 2013

  • Sandra

    Nathalie Vazan started this meetup event as dinner & dancing for NY Eve. If you want to do something different, you should create a different event. It's right or fair for anyone to change an event that someone else has started to something else.

    December 15, 2013

    • Nathalie V.

      Thanks Sandra! And I just wrote to Denise about this situation... N V :)

      December 16, 2013

  • Denise f.

    I love the dinner part, not fussy about the dancing.

    December 15, 2013

    • Nathalie V.

      Hello Denise! Hope you are well... I launched the idea of dinner & dancing a few days ago... I did not specify any venue, since I am open to suggesitons.

      December 16, 2013

    • Nathalie V.

      Oops... message was not completed... Denise, are you the one who added the meeting place Cinema 4 on Shelbourne? If yes, please create your own event since I am not intrested in going to a movie on Dec 31. Also, other people have written to me to let me know that you have changed my event ad...

      December 16, 2013

  • Sandra

    I am not interested in going to a movie, I thought this was about dinner & dancing. And UVic is not in the downtown area either. Why has the activity changed??

    December 15, 2013

    • Nathalie V.

      Hi Sandra! Thanks for the reminder that I started the idea of dinner & dancing! And I agree : I do not want to create a movie event on Shelbourne...

      December 16, 2013

  • Sandra

    That sounds great, but I am not sure of my work schedule yet. When I find out, we should meet for coffee to discuss it more.

    December 14, 2013

    • Sandra

      I'm in esquimalt, quite close to the bay street bridge and downtown. I hopefully will know my schedule by Monday evening, so it's probably best if we hold off on any discussion of NY Eve until then.

      December 14, 2013

    • Nathalie V.

      Yes, please let me know... Have a great week-end!

      December 14, 2013

  • Nathalie V.

    Hello! I feel like having a delicious meal and fun dancing on New Year's Eve! Am I the only one looking for someone to celebrate with?! I haven't chosen a venue yet, since I am still searching for a great "NYE combo" in the downtown Victoria area, that is, food and dancing combined...

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
