For 22 November 2012....

2012 will be our 6th annual Expat Meetup Thanksgiving Dinner, and Chris has volunteered to host!

We've had a great run of Thanksgiving meals over the past few years (thanks to Michele for 2011!). The event typically starts around 7, and everyone signs up to bring something (we assign categories so that we don't have 7 mashed potatoes and no other vegetables or dessert). It's also BYOB.

More details to follow soon!


Devyn

Hey guys! Directions to the party: make your way to connolly station (via bus, rail, or luas). Luas stops Bus Aras, Connolly, or Georges Dock are the closest. Bus routes 14, 15, 27, 151, etc stop outside Connolly or across the road at Bus Aras. If you're coming from O'Connell St, simply walk down Talbot St to Connolly. From Connolly, you pass through the lower lobby to the side road behind the station (Harbourmaster Place). You'll see the Vaults nightclub, Custom House Plaza (office building home to Ulster bank), and Eircom. You can often find parking around there. At the end of the road is a big blue drive through gate and a smaller pedestrian gate. Ring my apartment number (235) on the call box to be buzzed into the complex. Once inside, you go up the ramp on the right, and Asgard is the first building on the right. Ring 235 again, or I'll probably come down to meet you. It's a bit confusing floor number wise because there's the ones that are on water level which are called floor 1, ground level (where you will be coming in ) as floor 2, and then we're technically floor 3 (even though you only realistically go up one flight of stairs, not 3). There is a lift for people who don't want to/aren't able to use the stairs.

Hope to see you all there!

    Thanks Chris and Devyn for all the efforts in bringing this party to fruition. A marvelous evening. Shame I am returning to the US for a year. This was my first meetup with this group; what a great event.

    Chris, I'll bring salad & soda per your request :) Do you need dressing as well? Or is someone already providing that?

    November 21, 2012

    • Chris :.

      i don't have any dressing, no. i don't think anyone else has volunteered for salad duty, so maybe pick up something generic. don't spend too much though.

    Hi, not totally sure if I will make it, because I'm based in Navan during the week these days, but if I do make it out, I will bring a bottle of wine!

    November 12, 2012

  • Cayce H.

    Is it ok for me to bring a plus 1? I Tthought I had signed up for one, but it says that I didn't, also I can bring a sweet potato dish with a brown sugar/pecan topping :)

    November 4, 2012

  • Chris :.

    of course. there is a cat in the house tho. she'll be locked away in the other room, so it shouldn't be an issue, but i thought i should mention it if your kids have allergies.
