Martini Rebellion '13!

My Friends, I have a dream!

0.5 score ago, I used to go out and paint the town red or white, or magenta! Used to go to Lounges and fully exercise my civil liberties: Enjoying Martinis and our already short Summer. Such are the freedoms of every Canadian. But have you seen this so-called Summer of ours? It's atrocious!

But thanks to evil spirits and the economical downturn, that well practiced, nationalistic yell has become but a mere whisper of its once, robust and proud patriotic self. Alas that cannot be left as such!

It will come as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of the Martini captivity! Come and join us as we celebrate Summer's last days. Join us before it walks through that valley, the valley of the shadow of deat-- sorry, Winter.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: As we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all Martinis be under $6! Yet, search high or low, they still linger at $10+ in our fair city.

But until that glorious day comes, we have brave souls, like the ones working at the Hey Lucy who support our cause of martinis for only $5.00!

So let's go, we are aiming for the patio but we might stay indoors depending on the time! No, it will not be a heavy drinking night, but come out and mingle and have maybe a drink or two!

Please do not be late for this noble cause!

See you there!

    Good afternoon everyone! Thank you to those who came out last night. Also, Shaun, I hoped that perhaps I would have heard from you but the server told us you left without paying and Gerry and I had to cover your bill. Please email me about that as soon as you get a chance. Thanks.

      Shaun, so $4.49 * + tax + a good tip we had to leave because we did not want to look like we were trying to defraud the place as I am sure you can agree that it does not look good when someone leaves without paying, specially if we would like to use the place in the future. So $7.50. You can do an electronic transfer through your bank. That would probably be the easiest and quickest thing and it will cost you cents (if at all) or we can meet briefly in the next couple of days for it and get it over with because regardless of the amount, I do not like letting instances like this linger.

      Okay for the record: I tried giving Shaun the benefit of the doubt but never heard back after I had to reach out and ask him to pay back his bill. I would say that after giving someone almost 3 weeks it is a safe assumption that he never intended to pay it after skipping at Hey Lucy at this meetup. So if you meet him at another meetup or otherwise then just keep that in mind, for your sake as you may end up having to do the same. Although it hardly ever happens, scenarios like this do happen with such large meetups. Also, although nothing personal, I am still going to ban him from the group, and report him to Meetup.com.
