Important Event Notes - FAQ
  • Its in November. Thats not really fall, is it?
    Yes, technically its 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 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

YYC Fall Do - 7th Annual Burgers & Scotch Evening - November 5, 2022

Details to be confirmed, wiki will be added once they're firmed up, but expect the usual deal - burgers and Scotch at Buchanan's.

Apologies for the short notice, it has been a pain trying to figure out my schedule for the rest of this year.

I've got 2 soon-to-expire flight credits. I think I'm going to YKA in December, but if not Ill use them and finally attend this!

7th annual? That implies that some of us are getting older! Not just the scotch

​​​​No flight passes here but hmm... we have a few paid latitude with free change/stopovers

I certainly am! I was telling someone today about my connection to another friend, and realized that even though I don't think of this guy as one of my oldest friends, we've actually known each other for over 20 years.

I have one free weekend before EOY, and it's not that one, so I'll be stuck in California. Enjoy the -10 walk to the after party.

I am sad I can't make it.
