EDGEmonton U2 Fan Party - Monday, June 21st
« on: March 24, 2010, 04:22:31 PM »
HJ, Witsa and I are planning a U2 fan get-together on Monday, June 21st (decided to do it then rather than the night before the show as most of our attendees will likely GA tickets and not want a late night out prior to the show).  The show is Wednesday, June 23rd.  We'll also have a more subdued get together on the 22nd but the 21st will be the 'late night'.

Venue is TBA but we're planning some kind of drinking and U2 listening in whatever shape that takes.  We are looking at O'Byrnes on Whyte Ave right now but we will keep you posted!  If you have the choice to come in a day early, do it!

I planned a great night in Vancouver which was a lot of fun, had nearly 30 fans there at one point and made some great friends, it's sure to be another fun night so save the date!

Awesome!  Thanks for posting this, we've got to get started!  I have still not heard anything back from O'byrnes, I will try again!
I will be getting back to Edgemonton from Seattle at around 1 p.m. that Monday --I think -- so I propose mid afternoon debauchery to get us started.

Who is in?

Remember I have to drive from crapville to get there for 7 hours, so I'm thinking more around supper time by the time we get there, probably get in around 3 at the latest (maybe 1 if we get out by 6am).

O'Byrnes site now has a party form for reservations, I say we rock that, and we have to request music if at all possible, I wonder if they have a jukebox etc.. because if they do, $50 says U2 plays most of the night!

HJ can you check to see if they have a jukebox or if they have a private room in which we can play our own music?

And when are most people arriving that are travelling?  Witsa is coming back from Seattle with you I assume?

Not sure what time I get back from Seattle...  still have to get plane tickets.  Still debating going to Van on the 18th to (maybe) meet up with Mom & one of my sisters, then taking the bus down to SEA on the 19th.  Also been waiting for seat sales...
should get booked this week.

I booked us 20 ppl for the Monday night at O'Byrnes on Whyte Ave.  I will be there.  Bells on, ready for Edge Shots.

I'm coming in from Calgary and don't know if I'm coming up Monday or Tuesday. If I can come on Monday, I'll be there for sure!

Since my son's Grade 8 Farewell is Tuesday evening, I'll not be there Monday.  :(  He's at the top of his class, so there's no hope of his failing!  :D

Have fun and a couple of pints for me!

I am just thankful it is not Wednesday night!
I just hope I get a chance to meet you at the show!

I sent another email and tried calling again to ask about music and logistics.


Frick, does anybody know how to get a hold of someone in charge over there?
It is mind boggling how many attempts I have made to actually talk to someone.

Our reservation is confirmed:

We have booked O'Byrne's for Monday June 21 to have a fan gathering.
Obyrne's Irish Pub Edmonton
10616-82Ave

Talked to Paddy at O'byrnes, finally, he is happy to help us plan the 21st.

~ He has the whole U2 music catalogue on his computer and can play any U2 song we like.
~ They have a big screen TV and can play U2 music videos all night if we can get them to him in advance.

He is emailing me the deets.

They are planning their big event for U2 on the night of the concert.  He told me he would like to talk to us over the next couple of weeks and make it really special.

I told him the recipe for The Edge shooter, he is ordering more booze.
LOL!

Anything you guys would like me to ask?  anything?
