Conversation Fun at the Pub with Mr. Brownstone

Come have fun and make friends at Mr. Brownstone! The owner of this pub is super-friendly to Meet Ups, and has treated my ESL group well in the past, so we're going back, again! As before, there will be a high proportion of ESL students, here, but you do NOT have to be ESL to join. We want everyone to talk and get to know each other and cross cultural boundaries. I will be waiting inside to introduce you to the group or help you find a seat. I will be here until at least 11:30 PM, unless everybody decides to leave early.



Mr. Brownstone is a fun bar and grill on Main Street. Located at East 13th Avenue, it is a medium walk or just a couple minutes by bus from Main Street - Science World Skytrain Station. Good buses to take are the #019, #008 and #003. There is no live music on Fridays, so at this event, we will talk and learn and get to know each other. Bottles of Hoegaarden are on special, but Mr. Brownstone has been known to give friendly Meet Up groups a free pitcher of beer or two on some occasions (like last time). The food special is still a mystery, however.



There will be a gratuity (tip) of 15% added to your bill automatically, so to tip extra or not is up to you. As usual, you must be at least 19 years old or older to attend. Please remember that you need two valid pieces of identification, and that at least one of your IDs must show your photo. If on the day of the event you have any problems (lost, can't get in), feel free to text me at 778.918.7156.

      No worries! Pub nights have no cancellation policy, nor a late policy. We'll be back next month, as with other pubs that treat us well!

    The owner is super-nice and gave us free beer again last time. If more of us come, we get even more!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
