So since the last meetup was a resounding success, and our last playoffs meetup was also spectacularly awesome, I've decided a playoffs meetup (perhaps even one every round) is in order. And since this is the only weekend free that I have for the next while its perfect timing. For any newcomers who don't know, theses meetups are generally excuses for some of the Lower Mainland NMers to get together, watch some hockey, argue about the readiness of Chris Tanev and drink some beer. And since this will be a playoff game the stakes will be even higher. Last NM meetup we played Calgary and that ended in an awesome tip-in Ebbett goal. This time we'll be facing the Kings here in Vancouver and I get the feeling its going to be one hell of a dogfight. Now, if you like beer, hockey and delicious pub food, then this Nucks Misconduct meetup is the place for you. Details after the jump, comrades.
Location: St. Augustine's. 2360 Commercial Drive, Vancouver, British Columbia, V5N 4B7, Canada. Their phone number is 604-569-1911 . For those of you who are looking at taking the Skytrain to the pub, just take the train to Commercial-Broadway Station, walk Northbound (you'll be walking 'up' towards a slight incline) and you should see St. Augustine's on your right.
Time: I'm off work at 4:30 that day so I should be able to get to the pub by 6ish or earlier, so if you show up around then or after that just look for the black guy. That'll be me. I'll be making a reservation on Wednesday so let me know in the comments if you're coming.
Date: Friday April 13th/2012. Vancouver vs. Los Angeles.
Here we are, about to embark on another playoff run. Hopefully we get to hoist that big Stanley thing at the end of it. Nucks Misconduct meetups are awesome and playoffs meetups are even better. Last time we had about 15 people or so come out. Unfortunately I couldn't make this post earlier because the playoff schedule came out today so its kind of short notice, but hopefully we get around the same number as before. Let me know in the comments if you're coming!
