The good people of Canada’s capital region have been requesting firmly that we all get together this month while the Mustache family is still in town. So your call has been heeded and it looks like we’re going to make a pretty good party out of it.
Originally planning to set something up for us in one of the nice bayfront parks, I was upstaged by a letter from a reader who has offered us her whole fancy house near downtown to run wild in while we talk about bikes or recipes or investments over a few beers.
So here are the details if you would like to come out and meet your mustachioed kin:
Time: Saturday night, July 20th, 6:00 PM -> ???
Place: The Vanier neighborhood near Richelieu Park. Easily accessed by bus or bike from most of Ottawa, but with some on-street parking nearby.
Obviously, non-car transportation is encouraged, and people who bike there get their drinks on me, as has become a tradition for these gatherings.
Format: A houseparty-style gathering, informal potluck for food (bring some drinks and food if you can, and some treats will be there as well). Kids are welcome, although it will probably be slightly busy and mostly adults, if past gatherings are any hint. And very fun. You might bring your best ideas and even a business card or two, as business enterprises and even the odd romance have been spawned at these things ;-)
Mr. and Mrs. MM will both be there, as well as Ottawa’s own Mr. Frugal Toque.
How to Get Your Invitation:
Once you are fairly sure you’ll make it, send an email with a brief hello to MustacheMeetUp@gmail.com. This account will email you back the exact address of the venue, as well as letting our hosts keep track of how many people are planning to come. We only have space for about 100 people, so get your plans made and I hope to meet you there!
Any planned meetings in Florida? It’s sunny year round here.
