Important Event Notes
  • 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
  • Theres no set cost to attend everyone just pays for their own food and beverage (the restaurant will do separate bills for everyone)

I've added myself to the Wiki for alerts - it's very challenging for me to get out these days, but hopefully I can pull something together to make it down for a bit.

Looks like I won't be able to make it, with the exception of a slim last minute chance of changes. Sorry to be missing the first one ever!

I just booked four days in Calgary to work with local colleagues and catch up with friends. I'd be very happy to make this event! I'll update the wiki

If anyone needs advice on hotels, getting around on foot, by bike, by transit, or by car, including downtown parking (ugh), feel free to reach out

Count me in. Looking forward to it!

I'll be an early-ish participant ... probably arriving towards the start of the evening.

Those who've confirmed attendance, are any of you bringing +1s, who are more than welcome? Mrs. Smith is on the fence about joining us, and usually more enjoys the company of normal people than FlyerTalkers. If any +1s are similarly hesitant about the idea of hanging out with a bunch of frequent flyer weirdos, she can potentially provide some company.

[MENTION=739020]YYCCL3[/MENTION] if anything changes, feel free to drop by.
