On behalf of my crew at The Argosy, I want to welcome you Sackville for the 2011 Fall ARCUP Conference. Keep this program near and dear to your heart it is expected - for it will tell you who, what, where, when, how and why to expect everything thats expected. This way, youll have no unfounded expectations.

Welcome to ARCUP!

Take the free time you have to mingle with your fellow student journalists. Become acquainted with this ARCUPs speakers they are knowledgable. Use free time to explore this unique jewel of a town. Sackville? Lets just say welcome home. But remember, first and foremost, front and centre, we are here to learn. And learn we shall. Be sure to take notes so you can recall them at later dates and share them with friends back at your respective campus. Feel free to share ideas, plans and best practices at your newspapers. In the end, each publication and the Atlantic region as a whole will benefit. Lastly, have fun! Enjoy the festivities and entertainment, both planned and unplanned. You may notice that sleep, at least a goodnights sleep, is not scheduled. Relax, ok? Before you know it, this ARCUP will be relegated to the annals of history. But on a less melancholic note The Argosy is pleased to present the 2011 Fall ARCUP brace yourselves for a great ride! Cheers, John A. W. Brannen Editor-in-Chief The Argosy

Joeys Restaurant: The nicest place in town, well be holding our Saturday dinner at Joeys. Great Italian cuisine, though a bit pricy if youre just looking for a pizza. Olive Branch: Not bad food with a bit more selection. All day happy hours. Not well frequented but mostly because weve never given them a chance. Jacks Pizza: Good pizzas, great garlic fingers and donairs, better prices. Its a good choice for Maritime staples. Home Alone Pizza: Probably the cheapest pizza and best served after a night drinking. Fun people, too! Mels: An old 50s diner with a wide selection of the classics and at great prices. Vinhs Wok: Chinese and Vietnamese food, both as buffet and sit down. Good portions, too. Out near the highway: McDonalds, Subway, Wendys

For your lunch rations...

Pickles: Amazing European sandwiches. Nice sizeable portions and they serve good German beers. We recommend! Bridge St. Cafe: The cornerstone of Sackville social life, its definitely a place to see. Good selection of coffee and tea as well as tasty food. Vegetarian friendly. Dancing Dogs: Charming and brand new spot; great food! Cackling Goose: Organic, Fair Trade, gluten free, vegan vegetarian, and still great food! A great multi-use store, we suggest you take a look.

Where the rum is...

The Pond: The Mount Allison pub, its great for a relaxing drink early in the evening and becomes the main location for dancing late at night. Duckys: The heart of Sackvilles night life, it has a great selection of draft and is usually the homestead of Argosy staff. Uncle Larrys: Its an experience...that sounds ok, right? It has billarads, cushy chairs, and dancing. Those are pluses! The Legion: See the Queen on the way in, kiss her on the way out. Good selection and billiards, its alway a good time! Georges: A bit of a walk but worth it when they have a show. Friday night happens to be one of those nights! Sassys: Away from the rest but a really nice spot. Closer to the Coastal Inn so its perfect for the first and last drinks!
