Well @U2ers... time to plan a drinkin' session before the last show in Vancouver!  I planned it for 8pm to allow an opportunity for those of you who want to grab dinner beforehand since this is more of a bar than a dining destination (although they do serve the usual pub grub if interested).

Chose a location downtown on Granville @ Nelson, the majority of the downtown hotels are about a 10-15 minute walk from here or a very quick cab ride so location should be convenient to those staying near BC Place.

Let me know if you plan to join in so I can reserve an appropriately sized table for the gang - hope to see you there!

I'm in!  I will find out if I will be bringing people - could be 3 or 4, so I will email them & find out if they are interested.

I'll be at the Canucks game, which starts at 7.  Hopefully it'll finish by 9:30ish, so hubs and I will meet you then.

Can't wait to meet you!

Ooh! I'm a BonoGirl! But I can't make it on the 27th  :'( That sounds really fun. I hope I still get a chance to meet you guys sometime around the concert...

Excellent!!!!  The "meeting" we had at Soldier was kind of crappy, really... not enough chance to talk, and me wearing grubby GA clothes and smelling of humidity off Lake Michigan (LOL!) - lets do it right this time ;)

You know what makes ME excited?  There's a liquor store right at the bottom of our hotel :D

Very easy to enjoy a nice glass of wine before the show - yay :)  There was never one close to our hotels for the other shows so this is a small victory. 

Yay Google Street View (which is now live for Vancouver if you want to play with it!)

PS - All that nightmare construction on Granville is pretty much done now thank goodness.

Hey it was short & sweet but great to meet ya, and you no smelly bad!  At least no more than us!  LOL.   ;)   It'll be great to do it 'proper' though.... I'll let you know once I hear back from the gals. 

Btw - the streets all over are in construction  for the past two years in prep for the Olympics, and then you have the condo constructions also blocking traffic downtown.  Its been a pain getting around & we have diversions all over.   (don't get me started)

May not be staying @ the Westin now...  my sister is paying for the hotel, and she all of a sudden is saying that she would like to stay at the Pan Pacific.  (I guess there's some sort of deal going on for those days.)  I am just waiting to see what she decides.  I would rather the Westin, but it's her call I guess  :(
on the other hand...  those lovely Irish men have stayed at the Pan Pacific in the past - you never know!

The Pan Pacific is lovely, they do have some very good deals as well.  However, can't beat the location of the Westin for the show so I'm going to stick with it.  I got $219 for a one bedroom suite way back in March when they first announced the show that I never canceled (yay me).  If Edge is staying at the Pan Pacific though, I'll join you guys for breakfast, sound good?

:P
