Salut a tous!
N'importe qui intéressé à une soirée de conversation française. Donc, voici une autre chance pour cela. Le plan est de faire parler les gens en français toute la nuit ensemble.
Si le groupe est grand, généralement vous discuteriez avec la personne suivante et s'il est un petit groupe, il est grand conversation amicale pour tous à joindre.
If you are a beginner or feeling non-confident, please join, but do understand that this is totally in French. However, you can certainly attend and practice your French listening skill. Just kindly tell everyone at the table and perhaps you will find that you are speaking French soon enough after a few beers ;)
O'Byrnes été choisi parce qu'il est relativement calme en début de soirée et il offre des ailes et des boissons spéciales.
Il n'y aura pas de réservation que nous ne savons pas combien d'entre vous sont intéressés à venir. Please RSVP YES only if you are for sure coming regardless of any plans or reasons. If you are unsure, then kindly wait to RSVP to not impact the decision of the ones for sure attending vs the ones who are not so certain.
I would recommend that the first person try to save table(s) by the entrance. To the right of the entrance, there is a small room that can accommodate upto 12 will be my first option! Otherwise, there are plenty of tables to the left of the entrance to choose!
Lastly, there is no event host for this French Chat. I don't think there is no need for one. Simply start up a conversation in French the second there are two of you. It is highly recommended that you update your profile with a picture so that others can try to find you in the bar. And if you have access to the internet, please post a message on this meetup so that others can get a heads up of your location.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please don't hesitate to send me a message.
In case you are wondering, here is the rational why O'Byrnes at 5:30pm was chosen:
O'Byrnes was chosen because they have a big place, offer happy hour prices from 2 to 8pm and outside of downtown, it is pretty central. Also, there is paid parking to the building beside, to the left of O'Byrnes.
However 5:30pm was chosen because having lived in this area for over 5 years, I know that FREE parking is still possible before 6pm because the people that lived in this area works elsewhere and while those who don't live in the area comes for the many events Old Stratchona offers throughout the night. Moreover, after 6pm, there are free metered parking with members only having to pay a dollar if a 3O min meter parking is available. There are at least 20 of them, right in front, across the street and around the corner on 107St and more along 109st or along Whyte Ave.
If you work later in the day and you wish a later start, feel free to create your own meetup or just copy this exact meetup and put the time and date you wish.
