What time are we assembling at Yaletown Brwg.? :confused:

The EventBrite thing said 7:30 @ Yaletown Brewing, but perhaps our Mistress of Ceremonies can chime in.

LOL I don't know about being a Mistress ... however, yes, 7:30pm is correct. :)

@pudgym29 - if you are in the neighborhood, interested in a cocktail at The Keefer? It's a 15 minute walk from Postmark.

They open at 5:00 I believe.

I meant it in the in-charge sense of the word.

Okay, maybe not that in-charge.

Awww, you know ...

I'm a craft beer drinker (but I do slum sporadically). Cocktail lounges are not my favo(u)rites.
I'm on a 1-day TransLink pass (CDN$10.25) (In Chicago, a 1-day CTA pass costs $10.00.). So I would opt to ride from any venue to Yaletown.
Just looked at the map. Naaahhhh. I'll see you at Yaletown. Until then.

Nope. But I've been at similar places in London and New York. Can't speak about other FT members however.

Just beneath the surface.

This is another underpublicized reason to attend a Japan Do. There are venues in Shinjuku and Roppongi (& Ikebukuro and Ueno) where.., yeah. They even tolerate gaijin.

Sadly, I'll be there in two weeks but with colleagues who may not have the broadest of tastes. But good to know for future reference.

Just arrived at the Wall awaiting word on whether the Sub-Do in the lounge is indeed a thing. If not, will see you all at dinner.

And did all you rats take every room on the 25th Club level? I had to settle for one floor away. :D Still within spitting distance of the lounge, though.

googlemaps says ~17 min walk from our hotel (Delta Suites) ... so to get there ~1730 we should depart in about half an hour

Bohemian1 Sep 15, 18 6:44 pm

I'm nearby the Sheraton. Is anyone assembling there for a pre Do mini-Do?

I can walk over to the Sheraton.

Bohemian1 Sep 15, 18 6:59 pm

I got here and, for a lack of anything more creative to do, am camped out at a table in Bar One in the North Tower of the Sheraton.

I know that @24left could do a much better job of in situ photography, but it was a tasty drink.
