• Bouldering at Shakti

    Shakti Rock Gym

    Anyone here interested in rock climbing? Bouldering is a variation where you climb without ropes or harnesses (always at a safe distance from the ground!). As a result you don't have to go through any accreditation lessons to get started; you can just jump on the wall right away! It's one of my favorite things to do and I'd love to meet more people to climb with :) Shakti is located at the corner of St. Viateur and de Gaspe, about a 10 minute walk from either the Rosemont or Laurier metro station. I've been climbing here for roughly a year and it's been a blast. Everyone here is super friendly and helpful, no matter what your skill level. Speaking of, if you're new to climbing and feeling a little hesitant I hope you'll give it a try anyway. You'll find a physical activity that's more about using your brain and balancing your weight properly than having raw strength. I've even gotten my parents into it :P Anyway, that's enough out of me. Hope to see you there! Price: $13 for day pass + $5 for climbing shoes if you don't have your own. https://shaktirockgym.com/rates/

  • Let's force ourselves to work on our side projects...

    **UPDATE**: This meetup will merge with Les Pitonneux's Coffee & Code meetup. https://www.meetup.com/pitonneux/events/hgxrvqyzgblb/ I'll leave this page open for people to sign up because my meetup is not restricted to coding, unlike Les Pitonneux's. Do you have a side project you've been wanting to do but couldn't work up the motivation? Let's meet up and change that! This event is primarily meant to help us avoid procrastination but it could also be a way for us to learn skills from each other. Your project can be pretty much anything as long as it's not too messy/loud. Writing, drawing, and coding were what I had in mind for this meetup but don't limit yourselves to just those options. Oh and if you're coming to the meetup, also share in the comments what skills you'd like to learn and which ones you could teach :)

  • Friday Night Poker!

    5807 Boulevard Saint-Michel

    Hey everyone, I'd like to host a casual poker night, no experience required. I have a decently large poker set and a big table. I'm thinking a $10 buy in cash game and people can cash out if they want to go early. If you don't know how to play, I can teach the basics of the game, if you do know how to play, come play some poker. It's a pretty low stakes game, I want to gauge the interest in playing poker within the group. I'm shooting for a 5-9 person game. So come out and play some poker!
