Pub Nite

This time the pub venue is away from downtown.  At the request of Gloria we are trying a pub at Centrepointe.

As always, I'll let the bartenders know there is a British Group Meetup and there will be an Union Jack on the table. 

At this Meetup, there will be a survey on the pubs we have visited in the past year to choose which one we like best and then maybe we will just stick to one pub.

Hope to see you there!

    Glad to see Ann is back with us. As to Gloria's question about how many turned up at Centrepointe - it was 8/9 people. (One left early.)

    If enough regulars turn up to the next Meetup (New Edinburgh Pub) I will hand a out a survey to decide which pub(s) is the best to meet. Of course, any member is free to arrange a Meetup at Centrepointe or anywhere else - just let me know if you want me to make you a co-organizer.

    Hallelujah! I'm finally back in business. Apparently a couple of ISPs were still not allowing access to the web site, but as of this morning all appears to be back to normal - for me, at least.

    I was sorry to miss last Friday, but had notified Sheila as I was unable to change my RSVP. Hope to be there next month.

    Sorry I didn't make it, delayed at work and unable to get on the site to change my RSVP! It appears to be back up and running now. I'm a little surprised people had a problem finding the pub and parking....there's tons of parking right by the pub and it's only ever busy if there something going on in the theatre. It's Avery popular venue for gatherings because it's easy to access and easy to park, great venue for summer too....hopefully we will give it another chance sometime. See you all next time

    When I left at 8 p.m. there was 3 of us. 3 or 4 people arrived as I was leaving. Myself I had no problems finding it as I have been to other meetups there.

    Is 16 a poor turn out? The last one I went to on Rideau had about that or even less! If you found it difficult to find I am amazed as it shares the same parking as the library and CEntrepointe Theatre! Masses of parking right off Centrepointe drive beside the pub. More parking beside the Royal Bank behind the pub. Other Meet-UPs use this pub on a regular basis because it's so convenient to both bus people and those who enjoy FREE easy to find parking What more do you want? Downtown it is not. Are you putting it to the vote or have you decided on a regular location already? A rotating location seems fairer . How many actually showed up? The fact that the website had problems obviously had some impact.

    I was the second one to arrive and I was a half hour early enjoyed the company. It is too bad people do not have the courtesy to un rvsp it says a lot about the ones that did not. Granted I myself did not have problems with the system.

    It was a poor turn out - I don't think I will choose that pub again - I found it difficult to find and then had to figure out where to park. Also, it wasn't well lit, making it a problem for people not used to the area.

    The one thing going for the pub was that the room where they put us was very large and roomy and we had the place to ourselves. I know Meetup was having some problems and maybe those who didn't show up, couldn't let us know as the site was not working properly (it is now fixed.) Still it really does help everybody, including the pub to know how many to expect.

    Thanks for trying this pub Sheila. I will not be able to attend unfortunately as I am soaking up the sun in California (80F today) . Sorry to mention that! I hear you've been having a bad winter so I picked a good one to get away. Back soon in time for the Aprl pub nite tho'. This pub has a very nice patio for the summer and lots of free parking and great location for those who take the bus. Hope you like it.

    I have no problem with the Centrepoint location, but my RSVP is tentative as I have an all-day conference and am not sure when I'll be home.
