YEG Miles & Pints on March 10: Frugal Flyer and Prince of Travel Co-host

Josh and I are excited to announce that we are hosting our first Miles & Pints networking event of 2023, once again in our home base of Edmonton, Alberta! It turns out that Prince of Travel was planning to host an event in Edmonton around the same time, so we’ve decided to co-host with their team! 

Join myself and Josh from Frugal Flyer, in addition to Kirin and T.J. from Prince of Travel, as well as fellow Frugal Flyer and Prince of Travel readers from Edmonton and beyond, for an evening of networking and discussion about all things travel, points, and credit cards.

Read on for full details, and make sure to RSVP via the event page (administered via Prince of Travel).

The Venue: Omen Brewing

Omen Brewing is a microbrewery in Edmonton, located just off 99th street in south-central Edmonton. They have their own parking lot which makes for a nice convenience.

The address for Omen Brewing is: 9942 67 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 0P5

Like most microbreweries, Omen Brewing offers an exciting arrangement of craft brews with entertaining names. Omen specializes in darker styles of beer, but rest assured that they have something for everyone (they even have a gluten-free beer!).

The Event: Casual Networking, Complimentary Appetizers, and Drinks

This event will be a relatively informal Friday night meetup. We are aiming to have 20-30 attendees and will be situated in the main taproom of Omen, on March 10, at 6:00 PM.

Capacity here is a bit limited, therefore RSVPs are mandatory. 

The RSVP is administered by Prince of Travel’s membership and event system. This means to attend, you will need to have a minimum of Gold membership with Prince of Travel (10 USD per month subscription, cancel anytime). 

This presents great value as all attendees will get complimentary appetizers, and drink ticket(s) according to their Prince of Travel membership tier:

  • Royal Platinum: 3 drink tickets
  • Platinum: 2 drink tickets
  • Gold: 1 drink ticket

Platinum members and above will also be able to access the Prince of Travel discord community and monthly guest sessions. Rumors have it that I will be speaking at one of these guest sessions in the next two months, covering all things ITIN related; keep an eye out for more information.

As capacity is limited, RSVPs are mandatory and, we won’t be able to accommodate guests, non-members, or members without an RSVP. 

You can sign up for your Prince of Travel membership here, and RSVP on the event page here.

The official end time for the event will be 9:00 PM, however, everyone may come and go as they wish. Omen Brewing does close at 10:00 PM, but that’s not to say any enthusiasts can’t continue the night from there…

Who Should Attend and Why?

In-person events are without a doubt the best environment for sharing miles and points secrets. While we write about a lot of what’s going on in the miles and points world, there are always tricks that simply can’t be shared online. 

Moreover, you get to meet and connect with other fellow travel hackers who share the same interest and drive as yourself. Some of my greatest travel exploits have come as a result of collaboration with like-minded people, and I’ve met some of my closest friends at events such as these in the past. Interestingly enough, I met Josh at a miles and points event back in 2019, and the rest is history.

In-person, events are the best way for those new to the space to ramp up their knowledge, as well as those who are advanced to collaborate and brainstorm new ideas. I can tell you that all of the practitioners at the pinnacle of this hobby have a large network of other travel hackers.

So in conclusion, the value of attending these types of events cannot be understated as they will not only give you stimulating conversation for an evening, but also the opportunity to build relationships for the future.

Get Your Tickets (Membership Required)

As mentioned, the event sign-up is managed through Prince of Travel. Tickets will be available on Tuesday, February 21st at 12:00 am EST, and space is limited.

If you’re interested in attending, please ensure you have signed up for at least the Gold Membership tier with Prince of Travel and RSVP at the event page.

This Miles and Pints event  does have space limitations, so I’d recommend RSVPing as soon as possible to guarantee your spot. 

If anyone has any questions, feel free to email Josh or I, or leave a comment below. 

Otherwise, we look forward to bringing together the Frugal Flyer and Prince of Travel communities at Omen Brewing on March 10th!
