Social Life in SJdS

Contrary to what one might think.... it actually seems easier to have an active social life in this small town than it is in Toronto. Trying to schedule social events in the two months I was in Toronto this summer was a minefield of "how about a week from Tuesday between 7:15 and 8:45?" and "I'm up to my eyeballs in work... give me a call near the end of the month and let's try and hook up."

Monday nights there is a choice of two movie nights in town. Both hosted by different local bars. Tuesday nights there is at least one regular poker night / pot-luck dinner that we have a standing invitation to. This Wednesday afternoon there is a road-hockey 'grudge' match between the Canadian team and the 'rest of the world' team. Wednesday night we are having a few friends over for dinner (and we didn't have to schedule 2 months in advance). Thursday night our friends at the Bambu Beach Club are hosting a party and showing of the Batman movie; and again on Friday night the Bambu Beach Club will hold a pool party to inaugurate their new swimming pool. (The only pool on the beach in all of San Juan!) By Saturday night we will be badly in need of a night off! But you never know what excitement could come up!
