Final decision:

Wednesday, January 27 - 7:00 PM

We haven't done this a single time this season, and dammit it's high time that we do.

Who is interested? I nominate any of the following locations:

Tobacco Road
Buffalo Bros.
Backyard Bistro

I nominate any of the following games:
(3) Tuesday, January 12 - 7 PM at Toronto - DaleCooper, Hurricane_SVT, CANES
(4) Thursday, January 14 - 7:30 PM at Detroit - DaleCooper, Citizen Cane, AcidQueen, CANES
(6) Thursday, January 21 - 7 PM at Atlanta - DaveG, dmonk, Kaberlay, AcidQueen, CANES, caniac247
(2) Saturday, January 23 - 1 PM at Philadelphia - DaleCooper, Citizen Cane
(6) Wednesday, January 27 - 7 PM at NY Rangers - DaleCooper, DaveG, geehaad, CANES, dmonk, Kaberlay, Hurricane_SVT (maybe)


And yes dmonk, I still owe you that beer.

I won't be back from Soviet Canuckistan until the last 3 dates there. The Philly one, being mid-afternoon, is out for me due to work.

The other two, just name a place and I'll be there.

I'd say Thursday 21st is better day than Wednesday.

sign me in. I'd like to try poutine at Backyard Bistro... so that would be my preferred location

I'd be game for this, I've been posting here for years (I was here under a different nom de guerre before 2006) and have only gotten around to meeting a few of you.

Backyard Bistro is advertising an 'intervention' for the Canes. "they need our help." I admire their advertising moxie. But has anyone actually been - is it any good? I have not entered those doors since it was Damon's. Can't say as I missed that.

Not sure I can make Jan 21 though, but don't schedule around me. Other than 12th, the rest are good.

We went once during the playoffs last year. The food wasn't too bad at all and the atmosphere was good. The only thing I'd recommend is that you pay in cash because they ****ed up the card billing somehow.

To be fair that was the first week they were open. They've got their act together now. I thought the food was pretty terrible that time, but I went back again before the Pittsburgh game early this season, and it was pretty good. I, too, would like to try this supposed poutine.

I've not met anyone here. I have no problem making a trip to Raleigh for a night. I live in the Capitals market so the only time I get to see Carolina play (aside from internet Center Ice) is when they face Washington on local tv. It's no fun being the only one in the bar with a 'Canes jersey on surrounded by the Ovechkinites.

Ha, I can top you.


I wish I was able to make it home for a game this season. Definitely next year, with baby & Afino in tow.

Tuesday, January 12 - 7 PM at Toronto - DaleCooper, Hurricane_SVT
Thursday, January 14 - 7:30 PM at Detroit - DaleCooper, Citizen Cane
Thursday, January 21 - 7 PM at Tampa Bay - DaleCooper, DaveG, dmonk, Citizen Cane, Kaberlay, geehaad
Saturday, January 23 - 1 PM at Philadelphia - DaleCooper, Citizen Cane
Wednesday, January 27 - 7 PM at NY Rangers - DaleCooper, DaveG, Citizen Cane, geehaad

Honestly, I'm wary of meeting you guys in person. I don't want to lose the animosity that I've managed to build up toward you in the past few months. Just you guys, though...I like everyone else in here.

Any Thursday, any location, need carpool from the Containment Area. Will pay for gas and a beverage of your choice.

I could probably handle any of the weekday times, the Saturday afternoon is possible but less likely.

Based on the numbers, I think we can call it.

Thursday, January 21 - 7:00 PM
Carolina at Atlanta
Backyard Bistro (across from the RBC Center)


Oddly enough, I have a conflict myself now for this night. I can still make it, but I will probably have to be a bit late.

Any reason that one of us should call over there that day and let them know that 8 of us are descending upon them?

I will probably do it, although if it turns out I'm going to have to be late that day I'll get someone on here to do it.

Cool, that would be helpful. We can try to get a more definitive list of who is coming a day or two before.

Hey all, I have family medical emergency (everyone's ok though), so I am flying back to the west coast tomorrow morning and will miss our get-together. Sorry to miss it...I was looking forward to it, but I hope y'all have fun.

Catch yas next time.

Since geehaad can't make it, does anyone want to volunteer to call ahead and reserve a table (one of the ones at the back would probably be good since they have 8 or 10 seats I think)? I feel stupid for scheduling this on a date when I can't make it on time, but I'm not gonna be able to get there until closer to 8:00.
