Vancouver Mini-Do 7 Nov. 2017?

Work finds me in Vancouver on Wed., 08 Nov. for a day of meetings but am flying in the afternoon prior so have some free time and wanted to see whether any FTers were available for a drinks or dinner somewhere downtown.

My flight is mid-afternoon on 7 Nov. so even after checking in to the Fairmont YVR and getting downtown would have some time before meeting up.

Anyone in town and up for a get together?

If it's Steamworks, I could drop by for a quick drink as I'm working downtown that day and can meet up starting around 15:00-15:30. Can't stay past 17:30 though so don't base anything on me.

I could likely swing by...though I'd prefer somewhere other than Steamworks. The place is jam packed full of clueless tourists these days.

Oh the things you learn having had a gay roommate.

Glad I Googled to find out there is a brewery version too. 50-50 chance of being in Vancouver at the time.

The venue is good, the beer is decent, the view is great and there is no obligation to fraternize with anybody who isn't a bona fide local in the know.

I'm likely to attend (must leave before 18:00 sadly), regardless of the presence of visitors with the gall to spend time and money in our city.

So Steamworks it is! After checking into Fairmont YVR I should be able to be downtown somewhere around 4:30 so will try and have my yellow FT tag visible. I look forward to meeting those who can make it even for a short visit.

Unfortunately my class won't finish until 6:30PM and its going to take me awhile to get to downtown by bussing from UBC(As opposed to 99B Express where I can pretty much get to any point on Broadway in less than 30 mins)

An excellent idea. I may have to bail around 18:00 too but will try to stop by.
