Hi All,

It has been quite a stressful couple of days. I contacted Earl's to ask we can inrease our numbers so that the wait listed people can join, and they have a new manager who was not made aware of the booking. She said that taking 50 was to many and asked if we could reduce our numbers. Needles to say I said no and asked if she would reconsider. In the mean time I started looking around for an alternative venue. As we need a place that has variety in their menu. Harold's Bistro and Bar have been able to take us all, including those on the wait list.

I am negotiating the menu with the manager. Please go to their website and have a look at the menu. The pricing should suit most.

Time is short, so if you don't want to go there, let me know and I will take you off the list.
I am sorry this has happened and hope that you will cope with the change.
Atlantia.

Just read this after sending you a reply to your PM! Sounds good to me and so glad you've managed to find a place. You've done a grand job organising this.  :)

Just caught up on several months worth of posts here.  Atlantia, thanks so much for doing all this work!  I think Harold's sounds like a great choice - nice menu selection, good location.  I'm looking forward to meeting everyone!

I don't mind Harold's either!!
I haven't really been on for a while so hearing that Earls hadn't passed the news on to the new manager is a bit of a farce!!
Thank you so much for arranging everything for us!!!
You are awesome!

OK! WE ARE SET!

Harold's Bistro and Bar have liaised with me for the menu. It is a shortened menu from their main restaurant menu. I hope it will cater for you all. Richard has kindly volunteered to post the menu attachemnt for me, so watch out for it shortly.

Harold's do offer gluten free and will assist with meal options for people with allergies. Just liaise with me for your dietry requirements.

SMILE Not long now! 😁



Here you go. Enjoy the meal everyone. As it's taking place on site I might try and pop my head round the door to say hello.
Richard

EEEEEEEKKKK!!!! Guys! I cannot BELIEVE we are under two weeks!!!!

I've never been to Vancouver. I know the last place was in walking distance- is this the same?? I thought I remember someone saying it was a little further? but I can't remember and I'm trying to get our timing down!!!

Huge props to Atlantia for organizing all of this!!!!!! Thanks for all of your ongoing efforts! Harold's menu looks great!
