As of today, our flight from Seattle was pushed back (again) so we're expected to land in Vancouver now at 5pm instead of 2pm like we had hoped. We'd still like to go to see/meet everyone. Can seats be saved if we arrive a few minutes late?

Not sure how long it might take to grab luggage, get through customs, catch the shuttle and check in at the hotel...plus the 20 minute walk to the restaurant. Not happy about the long layover in Seattle (6 hours fcol!) but there is nothing we can do about it. :(

If we arrive exhausted and/or very late, we will let you know asap if there was a smart way of updating you Atlantia. Any suggestions?

Hi Brenda,
No worries. I will put a reserved sign on 2 seats together so you don't have to split up. My communications will be limited to here and facebook. I will see if Krisz will have her phone with her. If she does and is agreeable I will let you know by  pm how to get a hold of us if need be.

Just to let you all know, the main list on the first page has a few extras. The # is for those needing a taxi. The (W) is those intnding to walk over. If you have a preference let me know and I will add it.

I have put you, your friend and Jonesy on the list to taxi share.

So far there are 7 of us. I will book taxi's for 6.15pm. Meet in the lobby.

Note to all: Taxi sharing is a just a way to cut costs.  There is no cut off for joining the taxi list. ☺

Thanks Atlantia. Hopefully we'll make it in time and you won't have to save us seats. Cross fingers! :P

We (Me and my +1) will PROBABLY be walking over. But seeing as how we may be touring that day- we MAY also be doing taxi just to make it easier. Will confirm soon

Looks like I'll be getting there in time to attend.  Can you add me to the waitlist?

Hi Umnr,

I have added you to the waitlist. Welcome to this miniscule group!  😆

That brings the total to 60 including waitlist people. I am going to email the restaurant to see if they are happy for the increase. I wiil post when I hear back. ☺

May I say yet again THANK YOU to Atlantia for organizing this?

I'm reeeeeeeeally excited to meet all of you!!! *happy dance*

Futher more, I have no problem walking to/from the restourant so if I may join some of you of the 'walking group' that would be awesome!

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.
