So you say to yourself: Self, I have to meet these insane people that scribble all over e2 all night and day. But where? And how?
Good sir legbagede
, rugged outdoorsman
and all round nice guy
, suggested a tribute to our American friends
. In order to celebrate one more year of not invading
each other, we will revel in all things American
. Weak Beer
! What better way to mark the birth of our neighbor nation? And in a foreign capital no less!
The Plan as it stands:
Friday, the Fourth of July
, 2003! 3 days after Canada Day
, which we feel is ample time to recover
! It's the big star
on your map
, the one that says capital
. We'll start off at the Kent street Bowl-a-rama
, virtually across the street from the Ottawa Bus Terminal
, where a few select lanes will be reserved, and the addition of balls to pins will fill us with trailerpark
joy. It is 5 pin, not the traditional manly tenpin they play down south. 7pm would be the time, as a lane has been reserved. It'll go until 9-ish, and i think it'll be about $6.50 ea. roughly, incl. shoes, lane, taxes. They have a full diner menu as well incidentally (legs recommends the fries). Update
: in the interest of portraying a "true
" American bowling experience
, rock and glow is out... that and it is only on Saturdays. Regular bowling, the way God intended it, will be played.
The address is:
Kent Bowling Lanes
270 Catherine St,
Then what?: With the red, white and blue
burning in our hearts, our noble band of minutemen
will charge up Bank Street to:
The James Street Feed Company
390 Bank St,
Where we will sample such delights as "American cheese
", "Pabst Blue Ribbon
" and "Burgers
". These foreign treats are subject to availability, as the last dogsled
delivery was delayed. Worst comes to worst, we will just order off the menu
. There has also been talk of going to the Elgin Street Diner, or the Manx. We'll play it by ear.
- a real live Merikan! come and be amazed!
- no broken leg can stop the mighty Twiin!
- needs a place to crash. Help a brother out!
Coming if they can:
Not coming, but requests the consumption of alchol on their behalf:
, the adventerous funkster.
, the lonely Viking.
wants to, but is going to WonkoDSane and Radlab0's wedding. She curses her popularity.
Unconfirmed but invited:
to add yourself to the list.
This noder meet is to be held in a strange and foreign land. I cannot stress this enough: DO NOT EAT POUTINE
OFFERED BY STRANGERS! Also, for those of you coming from far off places, How to lie your way across the Canadian border
is a useful guide.
Hope to see you then!
