Hi, everyone

I am new to the group (not new to Waterloo).  Visited Boston recently, and attended a couple of LessWrong meetings there, and enjoyed them.  Just learned from my friends in Boston that there's a LessWrong group in Waterloo, and am interested in participating.

Are we planning something in June?  Is it possible for something to happen?

Cheers,
Lucy

hi lucy,

i'm sure we can make something happen; we've met informally a couple of times over the last 8 weeks or so. i think it's just a matter of putting the call out and seeing who's around. maybe this coming thursday?

Hey,

Thanks!  Thursday should work.  What time are you thinking about?  I may have something in the early evening.  But I doubt it would go over 6:30/7pm.  (Will confirm my earliest available time that evening later/soon.)  How about dinner?

Hey, Alex and others

Thanks for the suggestion.  But I don't drink.  Can we go somewhere more food-oriented?  (Also saw a review that says their food is terrible ...)  Uptown Waterloo is perfect for meeting.  Do you know how many people we are expecting/usually come to these meetings?  My Thai might not be a bad place for hang out, relatively quiet, and can seat large groups, and they have smoothies (and probably also have some alcoholic drinks, but I can't tell you what because don't look at that part of the menu, sorry).  I am sure Famoso has beer too, and is a bit more bar-like, and is kinda good with large-groups.  Other options: The Indian place off King can work, if people feel like it, and maybe if our group is expected to be under 5.  I like Korean (Owl of Minerva), but I am not sure if I would recommend it for sitting around and chatting (a bit distracting there).

Which restaurant do people prefer, if you have some vague plan of possibly coming?

Best,
Lucy

Hi Lucy, I'm a postdoc at PI, and I have lunch with your Dan Gottesman pretty frequently.  Super cool that you're interested in LW!  I can't make the dinner tomorrow because I'm leaving town this evening, but we should definitely organize something else when I get back.

Cheers,
Jess

Oh, if you're the Lucy that I think you are, then we might have had a research meeting long ago about quantum circuits.

We've taken a table for four and are sitting inside.
