Kingston Mini Event/Meet Up

Post by Mollydog » Thu Apr 30, 2009 4:07 pm

I just thought I'd check if there were any seats left for the Kingston concert. How could I resist? Front row, seat 15! Only two hours from Ottawa. A day before my birthday too, so I deserve it, right?

Thank you all for your kind words and for assuaging my guilt. :D

Does anyone know if there is a meet up planned?

Hi Mary, I don't know if there's already something planned but I'd be interested in meeting for drinks after ... or before.

Should we start a new thread?

hi mollydog/mary and cate!

so excited to hear you're coming to kingston!! first row, fantastic!! it's almost painful sitting in the front row...(three nights in oakland in the front row almost did me in).

so i'll get to meet you there before ottawa as opposed to in ottawa.

yes, there is a meet-up being planned by don cummer, a fellow forum member who you must know since he lives in ottawa? so don, any details to report yet?

now that we're in countdown mode, 20 days and counting. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

see you all on the 22nd!

Let's sing another song, boys!

Post by don » Mon May 04, 2009 4:39 pm

I definitely think we should all get together either before or after the show in Kingston.

I checked out the K-Rock Centre on Saturday. There's no likely spots across the street, but down the road about a kilometre is the main drag for restaurants and bars. We should choose one of these and get the owner's permission ahead of time to bring our guitars.

Also, I'm looking at the possibility of having an open house the next day for Cohenistas at my cottage, which is about 45 minutes north of Kingston. We can gather by the lake on Saturday.

So let's keep this thread going -- maybe change the name to "Kingston Mini-Event" -- if we can do that.

Hi Bonnie, Don and Mary,

18 days left!!!!

Don's right there's a lot of places within a short walk, it's going to be very busy though. Queens is having a spring reunion (homecoming's canceled this fall) and the Americans are having a long weekend.

Do you have a favourite spot Don?

Tapas anyone?

Post by don » Tue May 05, 2009 4:36 am

My favourite spot is a little tapas restaurant on Ontario Street called Woodenheads. It has a sidewalk restaurant overlooking the park and the harbour, an indoors restaurant beside the pizza oven, and a back garden restaurant, surrounded by the stone walls of the buildings built in the 1850s. I wonder if they'd let us take the place over and haul out the guitars...

Hello Mary, Cate, Don and everybody else,

May I join you in Kingston? I am coming all over from Europe and it is my first time in Canada. I definitely go to Kingston concert and most probably to Ottawa on 26th.

Looking forward to seeing you and your beautiful country /oh, and LC :lol: /.

By all means, let's get together in Kingston! Is your Saturday open as well? I'm hoping that Cohen fans will join me at my cottage, which is just north of Kingston.

We're planning a mini-event for Ottawa as well.

Don - what lake is your cottage on? Is it within an hour or so from Ottawa? I unfortunately can't make the concert in Kingston, but I might be able to sneak away for a few hours on Saturday.

Looking forward to meeting everyone.
