NancyLynn  \"Organizer\" \"Reporter\" Our plans have firmed up, our Dutch guest is already in Western Canada, we are meeting as planned above. Now I'll need some numbers to make the reservation. Could you please indicate your availability on July 3? Thank you, and see you soon! I can't wait!   y
Christiane Lalonde   I agree with ZetieZ that Old Montreal is not a very appropriate place... Could we consider a less crowded area, a little cafe somewhere in the Plateau or something like that?  n
Percy Balemans   I am looking forward to meeting colleagues on the other side of the pond! :-) My travel companion (not a translator) would like to attend as well.  y
XNicole Rousseau   Ce sera un plaisir de faire votre connaissance. Nicole Rousseau  
Xavsie (X)  \"Photographer\" Désolée, la date ne me convient malheureusement pas... une autre fois peut-être! Je serai avec vous en pensée :-)  n
Lany Chabot-Laroche   Appointment came up, I will try to be present next time.  n

Joshua Wolfe   la place rest-elle la même??  y
Suzanne Éthier  \"Host\" Hmm... I love Old Montreal though I would not call it an urban "garden" specially in July... full of tourists... There might be more interesting place... I mean as garden and more relaxing. I guess I could talk to you later on about this. Salut!  y
Xtianshandun (X)   I am a new member and wish to meet you all if I am in town. Li Zhang  m
XMarie-Josée Gravel (X)   I might have to work...  m
Victoria Barkoff   Sounds like fun, but I won't be sure of my availability until closer to the date.  m
Chantal Chabot   C'est une maudite belle initiative... J'y serai !  
XLouise Dupont (X)   Je ne pourrai pas être de la partie... snif snif  n
Robert Morin   J'essaierai d'y être pour fêter avec vous tous!  m
Bernard Arsenault   Bonne idée - c'est sûr que les activités de départ et de clôture ne sont pas tellement propices aux échanges, mais espérons qu'il fera beau et que l'on pourra se promener dans le vieux port entre les deux!  m
kcierna   Hi, I am new to all this, I would like to come and meet you all. I will know my availability closer to the date :-)  m
Marlene Blanshay   not sure of my availability but i'll try. Also, old Montreal is bit pricey...  
Rosalind Lobo   My husband & I will be in Mtl for the Jazz Fest. We've booked a show that night (18 h), but might be able to join you all post-dinner. Would it be possible to call someone's cellphone "pour faire le point"? Our # for messages is 514.849.7070.  m

I'm open to suggestions Apr 24, 2008

"Urban garden" was inspired by the terrace of the resto selected. I went for Old Montreal to show off this part of town to our visitor from Holland. However I don't live in Montreal and am unaware of the jewels the great city has to offericon_smile.gif Please suggest another venue, keeping in mind s.v.p. that out-of-towners rely on public transportation, and that some of us are vegetarian. Thank you for your help! - Nancy

Good review Apr 27, 2008

I have been told that Jardin Nelson is one of the best (and most expensive) restaurants in old Montreal. But, since you can only eat outside, bring some sunscreen.

Tonight's the Night!! Jul 3, 2008

The weather forecast promises a dry-up this afternoon and evening, let's hope they're right (it's raining in Cornwall just now). See you all at Jardin Nelson at 6, as planned, except of course for those of you who wrote to say you couldn't make it. If your circumstances change, come on down, we'll be there!
Best,
Nancy
