Important Event Notes - FAQ
  • Itís in November. Thatís not really fall, is it?
    Yes, technically itís still fall until December 21.
  • Will the YYC Fall Do offer superior dining and beverage service?
    Yes. The restaurant has a very long whisky list and the best burgers in town. You can savour a sit-down meal from the ŗ la carte menu crafted for the Do.
  • What if I like hockey puck beef?
    Then you're a weirdo, but I guess you can ask them to do it.

Important Event Notes (real ones this time!)
  • The burger and Scotch theme is purely optional. Those are the specialties of the restaurant, but you're free to have a salad and a Coke Zero, fish and white wine or whatever floats your boat.
  • We will have access to a few of the restaurant's recent Whisky Wednesday tasting menus which offer a flight of 3-4 whiskies at a reduced price. For past Do attendees, this is the same as previous years

I donít mind admitting that I will have to do some serious sweet talking to Mrs WTME coupled with a lavish gift or two (like my absence isnít gift enough.)

But this is probably a great thing to spend $1100 on which I still have to do.

In fact I just checked and itís $1088 return in full J. Thatís literally $6 short of what I need. Iíll have to get a little more creative.

Point is, Iím gonna beg.

Well Here I am enjoying the hot sun and surf in DOHA and I was thinking that a good dose of cold reality would do me good so I am committing to November 5th. I just booked my flight, crashing at my kids place downtown Calgary, I am good to go!

Ok I'm booked to fly HAN-NRT-YVR-YYC on NH/AC, all on the 5th. Into YVR on NH136 and onto YYC on AC210. I might be tired.

Good to express interest here though.

I should be OK for this. If I can survive a trip to Indonesia at a conference with 600 people, I think Scotch and Burgers should be OK.
I'm a maybe. I've heard good things about the restaurant

Would have loved to pop down for this, but somehow thanks to the winter schedule it's an 8-hour journey with connections so not happening for me this time.

OK, I'm now confirmed ... I'll be there
