Rachelle and I are in Edmonton, Alberta for the Fringe Festival, and there’s been some interest in having a local meet-up, so let’s have one!
Here are the details:
When: 11:00 AM on Sunday, August 26, 2012
Where: Meet at the gazebo at the NE corner of 83rd Ave NW and 104th St NW. This is very close to Fringe HQ at the TransAlta Arts Barns, and it’s next to the main outdoor stage area. The area should be fairly empty since the outdoor shows don’t begin till 12:15pm.
Depending on how many people show up (we’d expect around 5-10), weather conditions (it should be cool but hopefully not too cold), and how crowded the area is, we may sit down at one of the nearby picnic tables or move to another spot like a nearby Starbucks to chat. If we move locations, we’ll wait at the gazebo till at least 11:15am.
These meet-ups are ultra-casual, and Rachelle and I are very friendly, so please just walk right up and hug us when you see us! I’ll probably be wearing jeans and a gray hoodie — just like every other Edmontonian.
I’m loving the Fringe. This is my 5th Fringe Festival but the first time in Edmonton. Rachelle and I have seen 25 plays here so far. I expect we’ll hit 30 by the end of it.
If you’re looking for good Fringe shows to see, some of my favorites include Olymprov, Harold of Galactus, Peter ‘n Chris and the Mystery of the Hungry Heart Motel, No Tweed Too Tight, Die Roten Punkte, The Adversary, and House of Dopes.
