.Hey everyone - just an update for you concerning the status of karaoke when the Vancouver Canucks are playing televised games. This past Monday, the OLD ADMIRAL had made a decision to play the game to it's finish - interfering with the start of the karaoke. After meeting with the management we have come to an agreement for future games:
1) The management appreciates the karaoke business and apologizes for any inconvenience this past Monday - they feel in hindsight karaoke should have run ON TIME as before - especially since the numbers of karaoke patrons outnumbered those watching the game.
2) For all future televised national or regional games (non-pay per view)
Karaoke will run ON TIME as a scheduled in the rear of the pub - as normal - those wishing to watch the game can sit in the FRONT of the pub - the HASTING STREET entrance. This way - both parties will remain happy.
3) THE ONLY EXCEPTION to the above rule is PAY PER VIEW GAMES - since the PUB pays to have them broadcast - the karaoke will resume immediately AFTER the completion of the the game. The upcoming future dates of PAY PER VIEW games where the karaoke will start late are:
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 29TH (Game starts at 7:30pm)
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 26TH (Game starts at 7:00pm)
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 16TH (Game starts at 7:00pm)
4) IN FEBRUARY of 2010 - we of course will have the WINTER OLYMPICS - which will ALTER all entertainment at the bar - and may affect karaoke. For example - TEAM CANADA HOCKEY TEAM PLAYS SWITZERLAND - February 18th, 2010. We are working on a special contest (Burnaby's Got Talent) that may debut in during this month - even on the weekends! Stay tuned for more.
I hope this clarifies and prepares you for future events at the OLD ADMIRAL - of course - I always look forward to seeing you all, but feel it is fair to keep you informed of schedules so you can plan your evenings accordingly. Thank you ALL for your dedication and patience this past Monday night.
OTHER RECENT CHANGES OF IMPORTANCE:
THE $200.00 COMMENT CARD DRAW
As many of your know - the first MONDAY of the month we do the comment card draw for $200.00 Gift Certificate for the Old Admiral Pub. There has been a slight change to the format. NOW - we will draw looking for a winner...only 5 times. If after five times - there is NO WINNER - the the prize will not be awarded, but rather ROLLED OVER to next month - which will now be $400.00 rather than $200.00. For example - if after four months there is no winner drawn within the first five names - then the next month will be for $1000.00. This could get exciting!
KARAOKE TIME CHANGE:
Due to increased occupancy in the hotel attached to the pub - the NEW HOURS for KARAOKE - starting MONDAY, OCTOBER 26th, 2009 - will be from 7:30pm to 11:30pm!!
Look forward to seeing you all at the OLD ADMIRAL!
