Coffee Time

Thanks for all of your interest and suggestions for meeting for coffee on Christmas day.

I'd like to make this as straightforward as possible, so my suggestion would be that we simply move our Meetup to the Second Cuip in Mayfield Common. Since they close at 8pm, why don't we meet there at 6:00, rather than our usual time of 7:00?

What do you think?

    I'm sorry guys! I don't think I'll be able to make it my friend is coming over and we're going to be drinking a bit and I don't want to drive with even a drop of alcohol in my system :(

      Smart decision. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Perhaps we'll see you in two weeks.

      I have already RSVPed :) I'll be taking the bus down from work since I won't have a car that day. I look forward to seeing everyone then! Merry Christmas and happy new year!

    I just got out of the shower and I can't stop yawning. I've had a busy month at work and tomorrow I start early so I have to get up at 5:30. I was really looking forward to being with all of you tonite, so I'm kind of disappointed. I hope to catch up again some time, as it's been about a month and a half. Merry Christmas again and all the best in the coming year.

    Yes, everybody (and now we are up to 15 of us!), the final plan is to meet today at 6:00 PM at the Second Cup in Mayfield Common. They close at 8:00 PM.

      I think we're trying for 6 since they close at 8 Marianne

    Aww man after all the confusion my RSVP is still iffy. I may have a friend coming over now but they're still on the fence. Hopefully if anything, if he does come I can try to convince him into coming for a bit if not the whole thing. I will keep in touch though.

      Sean I'm from Calgary also, moved here a year ago. This is a nice grp, so don't feel nervous. I also like who I am and where I'm going...isn't it great to be happy? 90% of the population isn't ....

    Don't know what happened to my post, so I'll retry. prefer Steeps - great atmosphere and I love tea. Better location. Sean, do you know the hours? I like the idea of a 6 pm start, as I have to work the next day at 8.

    Back to Steeps - are they open til a decent time? I like the idea of a 6:00 start and 8:00 finish, as I work the next day at 8...Hey Sean, I'm from Calgary too, moved here last october to help my son thru University...Welcome - you'll enjoy yourself!

    December 23, 2013

  • Sean B.

    Might I suggest Steeps by 124 st and stony plane road? It's a tea place... So it might be a bit of a change... The seating might not be good either... Anyone? McDonald's has a good selection too... No atmosphere though.

      I also called McDonalds, all the stores have different hours, but the one by WEM closes at 6. If there is up to about 10 or 11 of us (not our usual huge group) I may be able to host. I do have dogs if anyone is allergic

      I like the idea of Steeps. It's awesome. No McD's or Mayfield Common for me...no atmosphere and too far.

    Sounds good to me bob

  • Sukrit A.

    I'm down for anything. I may have a plus one but it's not confirmed yet. If my plus one doesn't show, I too will be alone for Christmas. I will be renting a car so whatever we decide I'm down for! I look forward to the final decision :)

    I called Denny's who's web site said they would be open but they close at 3 in the afternoon. I know I can't make it to the downtown core I have to stick to the west end. any more ideas for places?

    I'm all for a get together on Christmas day as my son will be with his father. If Second Cup is closed, lets go elsewhere, as though I will be taking it easy most of the day, I know I'll be lonely without my son. Please keep me posted, as I don't have time to research - heading into work now.

    Merry Christmas to all of you coffee lovers. I can't come on Christmas Day but hope you find a spot to meet. The hotels in the downtown core are open and I'd recommend CoCo's at the Delta Centre Suite in Edmonton Centre. There's a lounge and restaurant, great coffee, desserts and even turkey dinner.

    December 23, 2013

  • Marilyn

    I inquired further this morning and the only Second Cup on the west end that's open Christmas Day is the Mayfield Common location and they close at 8 pm. All Starbuck Coffee locations close 4 pm Christmas Day.

    December 23, 2013

  • Sukrit A.

    If not coffee would anyone be interested in going anywhere else? Or doing something else?

    December 23, 2013

    • Sean B.

      Yep. I'm otherwise all alone on Christmas day

      December 23, 2013

  • Sean B.

    So what's the verdict? Is the day a go? I want to RSVP.......

    Any ideas yet Bob? I am looking forward to it

    December 22, 2013

  • Sukrit A.

    Hello all! Why don't we make it to another coffee shop? Does it have to be second cup? Are there any other coffee shops that may possibly be open?

    December 22, 2013

  • Marilyn

    Hi Bob:
    I contacted the Second Cup today and was told they're closed Christmas Day along with all other Second Cups in the city and are reopening on the 26th. It's looking like we may have to reschedule for another evening.

    December 22, 2013

  • Sherri

    I am pretty sure the this Second Cup is closed this day ... and if it is open the hours will be shortened considerably. Maybe set this up for the evening of the 23rd or 27th?

    1 · December 5, 2013

    • Bob R.

      Thanks, Sherri. I'll have to check into that.

      It's interesting to see that three people (besides me) have already signed up. There are people who need a reason to get out of the house at this time of year.

      If this shop is closed, I think I'll try to find another place for us to go this week.
