I've been wanting to get a good poker game going for a while, maybe like a 5$ buy in or something. I can make killer dips and munchies, we can throw a few beers back, and maybe get lucky and win a few bucks.. Not putting a date quite yet, just to gauge how many would be up for that, especially if the group is still relatively small. ;P

I can help 4 people get to our house by picking them up downtown (George Street) please text me to confirm. I will let you know if my car is full. I will pick up around 6:30pm. I will also drive you back to George street later. But if you are driving, cabbing, or can take the bus, please leave room in my car for someone who can't. Driving is ~20/25 minutes and a ~$23 cab fare from downtown.

    • Laura G.

      Directions above. Basically, get onto King Edward > Quebec. Keep going until St Joseph SUD exit. Take the first right you can. Take another right at the first intersection with lights. Turn right again at the 2nd stop sign you see. Call me if you're still lost ;)

    Unfortunately I would have to back out since can't make it to both poker and skating as I live at the other side of town. Happy gamblin'!

    Steph, when you want this? Maybe we can do skating in the morning/afternoon Jan 11 and poker in the evening to warm up.

    January 3, 2014

  • Laura G.

    I think we'll do this one (most meetups) after the holidays/January. Heads up. If I don't see any of you before next year - happy holidays!

    How do you guys like the idea to play for something silly instead of real money, just like candy or self made cookies ( ;) ) or something?! I don't know, somehow I think that would feel different... Don't you think?

    December 1, 2013

    • Laura G.

      I'll leave it to Steph to make the shots. I'm good either way. I need to learn how to play real poker anyway, so I'm going to do at least one game with the $5 buy in. We can bring snacks just in case, and if we end up gambling with them, I don't see how that's a bad thing. Maybe we can get a whole casino going by the end of the night, lol.

  • Lena

    I'll bring jack if that's ok :)

    2 · December 3, 2013

    I'm down, I can contribute some snacks if it's like BYOS.

    You're going to need to teach me. Like I should make a sign for the wall to remind me what all the possible hands are.
