    Visiting Calgary for a bit

    Hey Calgary people,
    I have to come to Calgary from the dates of 14-24 of November. I know it may be a touch cold, but maybe if anyone knows somewhere good to eat and/or has a cool car/garage to show off on an evening where I will have nothing to do, that would be good to waste my time.
    I am not sure yet if I am flying or if I will drive down with the Corolla.
    The real reason why I am posting this now instead of a week before I come is because I currently don't have a place to stay. Does anyone have a room or couch for a good price? I am trying to make this trip as cheap as possible. The closer I can stay to the Calgary Police station, the better.

    Police station? which one? HQ? I'd be willing to entertain you the night of the 23rd with the usual suspects at my garage... you could even stay that night (I have a nice warm, clean bed in the basement, but I'm on vacation for the rest of the time you're here.

    Thanks! And I am not 100% sure, I am waiting on a few emails and to finalize things, but I am guessing it's HQ. And that would be cool! Thanks!

    It seemed kinda late in the year, but I wasn't about to tell a local they were wrong about their own event...

    I didn't think anyone would plan anything, I am doing it early more to try and find a room than anything right now.

    We have a unique car culture here in Calgary. (That's 'you-neek' not 'u-nick' in case you were wondering, Rene )

    I'm sure you could take up residence in my creepy cold basement for a while when you're in town. I'll OK it with the roomies first though

    I am getting in town 0920 this Sunday, then being picked up and going somewhere I am told is an hour away to visit my cousins. Around the 13th or 14th I will be in, from what I know, the NW section of town for the rest of my time there. I have testing 15, 16, 20, 21, 22, and am free any evenings or days up until I leave at 1815 on the 24th. Anyone want to do something cool and show me around?
