Saturday Pub night - Bobcats at the Rusty Gull

Come and join us for a night of live music at the Rusty Gull an intimate neighbourhood pub in historic Lower Lonsdale. Raved about by travel writers who have discovered its charm, The Gull has been loved by locals for 30 years.

The staff are famously friendly and the live music is the best on the North Shore.

With a large selection of hand-crafted beers, great pub food and of course live music. The Bob Cats are a classic rock and more information can be found here. http://www.bobcatsband.com/home_page.html

The Rusty Gull is always very very busy on the weekends. I would recommend getting here early as it is almost impossible to hold seats. I have put in 20 spots but as this is a bar there is no guarantee on seating. So come early pull up a chair and settle in for a great night of friends, music and maybe even a turn on the wee dance floor. We cannot guarantee seating at this venue.

If anyone would like to join me (Lisa)  for dinner at 7pm, I will heading over early. Please let me know in the comments below.  The more we are the earlier dinner will be. I will pop in this week and chat to the restaurant to see what time they suggest arriving to secure a decent table.

 

Robs Review of the Band:

Have been at three Bobcats dances in three consecutive weekends, three venues, and they play different songs every time.  Seems Bob White "fits" the music to the audience.

Their music imo is as close to the original tracks as I've heard from a band.  Just like the Tomcats.  (Tom has retired and is said to be taking life easy in Gabriola Island.)

Mostly oldies/classic rock that we're all familiar with, from 60's to 90's.

Amazing how this band plays this well without any sheet music.

At one point, at a Burnaby pub, most people took a break from dancing to just listen to their music.

    Rob's review of the Rusty Gull Pub: Tiny dance floor, audience too close to the band, had to plug my ears (too loud!).

    Great people, excellent band, heard music from high school days that I've never heard any other live band play .. and the Bobcats played them very, very well.

    Just a reminder to everyone that the Rusty Gull is very busy on the weekends so no guarantees that we will be able to all sit together and they will not allow us to hold seats on weekends as empty seats are lost revenue for them. So try to arrive early in the evening.

    Hey Lisa, fyi, we "lost" two attendees at a dance on Friday because they did not see our meetup sign. At Saturday's Africa Dance (highly recommended, except for the lazer lights) hosted by Rick, we arrived early, corraled (rearranged) 20 chairs and 6 tables. When the hordes came at 11pm, we were sitting pretty, so to speak, and "sold" our tables/chairs to late comers, lol.

    Thanks again for doing the hosting for this dance - won't make it until around 10:30pm

      Hi Christine, we will try to hold two seats for you, but depending on how busy the pub is we may not be able to. So recommend getting there as close to 7 as you can. Also youe picture is not very clear so you will need to look for us, but I will put a sign on the table. Lisa

    Rob, are you doing Saturday or Friday night - you have both posted now ? Please advise which one you are hosting.

    May 15, 2013

    • rob.Zeeee

      Also, anybody can take over hosting of this one, too as my work schedule is unpredictable. Anybody, please jump in, thanks. Basically, the job is to get a table and set up a sign, isn't it?

      May 15, 2013

    • rob.Zeeee

      There are signup(s) from one or more cross-posts.
