The icing on the snowplough January 11, 2008 8:28 AM   Subscribe

I'm flying from Londonengland to Toronto next month because I need to make a series of cake-related decisions. So, er, meet-up?

Due to these dessert dilemmas, I can't really do any other date than Friday February 15, or at an absolute pinch, +/- 1 day... which is why I've asked so early.

I have only one requirement, which is the opportunity to drink a beverage at #e0c616 or darker. Oh, and I will need to take a GO train back to Mississauga at the end of the gathering.

I can supply references.

Anybody around?

I'm going to need more information about your "series of cake-related decisions" before answering.

Yes, please tell us about your 'dessert dilemmas'. Whenever I have had a 'dessert dilemma' it is because I have eaten too many.

I didn't want to say the word 'wedding', because if you do, the price goes up by $500

The Enrichment Center is required to remind you that you will be baked, and then there will be cake.

Let me get this straight. You are flying transatlantic in order to look at some cakes, and you are worried about an extra $500?

What is wrong with the cakes England has to offer? I'm sure if you insist strongly you can get them without the normal steak and kidney filling.

Those are pies, you insolent swine.

Also, the cake is a lie!

Mmmm. Steak and kidney wedding cake, oozing with the brown sauce of fidelity and all hung 'round with swags and garlands of mushy peas. Yes, I can see why you'd rather outsource that aspect of your nuptials to a Canadian.

Cake - ? Like, "yellow CAKE"?

London, England - ? You mean the capital of a nuclear-capable state and meeting place for spies and terrorists from oppressive regimes around the world?

Flying - ? A la the doomed flights of 9/11?

Randomination - ? As in "iRAN seeks nuclear DOMINATION"?

Just askin'.

In questions of wedding cake the answer is always:
If one cake, then luscious white cake with lemon flecks, lemon creme between the layers, and buttercream frosting on top.

If two cakes, add a chocolate cake with hazelnut frosting, possibly with red fruit jam between the layers.

If three cakes, add carrot cake.

I am posting to this thread non-comittally. That date sounds semi-okay for me at this point, but mostly I just want to have it appear in my 'my activity' page so I can keep track of it.

The date sounds OK to me and even better if the meetup is about eating cake.

Cake-related decisions? The answer is yes.

Congratulations. Sounds like you're not going to the cake tasting alone.

Also: I think the most perfectly British thing ever would be a jacket potato, stuffed with baked beans and chips, wrapped in a pastry shell and then deep fried. With brown sauce.

Uh-oh. I just realized that the dief's past appearances at meetups have been associated with a Thanksgiving monsoon (October) and a bigass winter blizzard (December). And those were the mini-meetups.

So what should we expect for February? Tornado? Hurricane? A rain of frogs?

I'll come, too. Do we need someone to suggest a place or something? To facilitate your stagger back to Union Station after, we should maybe do it nearby... that part of town is a bit of a tourist trap, but here is a list (scroll down a bit) of restaurants in the area.

Always the bridesmaid, never the bride... I will provide you with insight on cakes from my vast experience with desserts. I could give you a ride back to 'saugua cuz I live north of it and the GO train stops running ~way~ too early for my liking.

Yay Toronto -- I have sidebarred these shenanigans.

I can't quite remember what time the last GO for Clarkson leaves but don't feel restricted to around Union station on my account... can I leave it to somebody else to suggest a venue?

A lift back to Mississauga would be super and also duper, though -- thanks. Let's see what transpires.

I will try and save some cake, or at least some centrepiece ideas or boutonnieres.

I take the GO from Hamilton, and I'm not much of a drinker, so I'll be more than pleased to help you with the staggering to the station.

I descended on this thread yesterday, eager to offer a reference for my good friend randomination, were such a reference required.

Prior to pressing post, I contemplated my misbehaviour and the general shenannigans, not just at the last London meet-up, but indeed, at all meet-ups in London to date.

I worried, you see, that these upstanding Torontonian Mefites might get the wrong impression of dear, sweet randomination (who did NOT participate in the aforementioned misbehaviour, in case his bride-to-be is lurking!).

Witnessing the above, I venture to offer said reference now, secure in the knowledge that our esteemed Torontonian mefites clearly comprehend that what happens at Meet-up stays at Meet-up.

Enjoy cake Mefites, and know that randomination is only shy to the second pint!

Well, I've had my greens for the day so let me be the first (!) in this thread to suggest a few different places to meet. There is always the Wheat Sheaf (King & Bathurst) which is usually recommended to out-of-towners because it is so old (old bar in Toronto) but since you live in the UK, a building merely 150 years old is probably not too impressive. A little further along King street is the Foggy Dew which is much newer and has baked brie on the menu, it's an Irish Pub though, I don't know if that matters to you. Chinese New Year begins on Feb 7th and the celebrations continue until Feb 22 so surely Chinatown would be colourful for you (do they celebrate Chinese New Year in London?). Hmmm, there are lots of little resturants there but I'm not so sure of a place to get beer because I don't drink. I am sure one of our connissours will pop in with an opinion. There is also the Bovine Sex Club (Queen St) but conversations can be limited while the bands are playing. An awesome after hours club is the Matador (just recently saved from becoming a parking lot - apologies to Joni Mitchell). Toronto is really small so you don't really need to worry about being close to Union (ugh, overpriced Tourist traps, Wayne Gretszkys/Planet Hollywood anyone?).

heh, after Meatbomb's Niagara Falls Askme maybe we should arrange a roadtrip to Niagara Falls to count South East Asians as a proportion of the tourist population.

Anybody else got any ideas?
posted by saucysault at 7:11 AM on January 16, 2008


Sorry, up there is should say about the Wheat Sheaf "OLDEST bar in Toronto". Too many greens I guess. I am sure there are tonnes of other typos but I am afraid to look.
posted by saucysault at 7:53 AM on January 16, 2008


I had some problems with the Wheat Sheaf this fall.. If we want to be down at King, the Foggy Dew might be a better bet.

There's The Red Room right on Spadina just south of College. Laid-back vibe, cheap prices, good food, right on the transit line.

RedRoom works for me, too. Cheap food, cheap drinks, lots of space, and right on Spadina so the all-night Spadina streetcar runs to.... you guessed it... Union Station.
Coincidentally, the last MeFi Toronto was at Nirvana, RedRoom's sister spot in Little Italy.
posted by pseudostrabismus at 5:53 PM on January 17, 2008


The Spadina streetcar is unfortunately not an all-night streetcar... it stops running around 2:00 A.M. However, hopefully that will be late enough to carry randomination down to Union Station.

So... Friday Feb. 15th at The Red Room? Let's do this thing!
posted by Fuzzy Monster at 11:24 AM on January 18, 2008


Okay, so the Red Room it is? Right now we are looking at meeting on Friday Feb 15th at what? 9 pmish? Just follow the smell of tehloki's roti I guess. I'm actually coming from Aldershot/Burlington that night and returning thataway along the QEW so dropping off randomination and the deif isn't a problem for me.

A minor observation.

I think I speak fairly clearly. I have an accent, but that's not as if nobody's heard somebody from England before. So why do service personnel find me so hard to understand?

In the cinema today, I order water from the kid behind the counter and get given tea. At Tim Horton's I ask for two maple swirls and get given three. And at Swiss Chalet -- I went to the loo after my meal, came out and couldn't find my table. I found the waitress, and I said:

"Hi -- I'm really quite tired and jetlagged and I seem to have forgotten where I'm sitting. Could you tell me where my table is, please?"

"Sure. That way's north, that way's south, that's east and that's west."

Where the cock did that come from? In what possible accent in the world does that sound like: "Hi -- I don't know where the points of the compass are right now. Could you give a demonstration please?"

Morning. I made it home. Unfortunately the all-night streetcar down Spadina runs all night but only stops at Adelaide, so I ran, weaving through club queues and skidding over icy pavements all the way from Adelaide/Spadina. I think at one point I vaulted a six-foot snowbank. At Queen I dived into the underground passageways thinking they would get me down the block faster. That was a mistake. I lost all sense of direction and had to be escorted back up the stairs, gibbering, by the security guard.

I got to Union bus station to find the gates bolted shut.

Arse.

So I just climbed over the barriers in the middle of the road and into the bus station to see the last GO bus for Clarkson just pulling out and around the corner. I think I actually said "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO".

This caused the policewoman to wave the bus down and stop it, and I jumped on.

Then I got to Clarkson to find no taxis, but a Mississauga Transit bus about to pull out going where I wanted to go. 45 minutes and the most circuitous route imaginable later I got home to find my fiancee climbing up the walls and her mother driving around searching for me.

Thanks for a good night, all. X

*waves at hey man i can't type that much*

So who's starting the GuyZero Bon Voyage meetup thread? :-)

I guess I will one of these days. I'm sure everyone will notice it.

Also, no meals at Ghandis for a while I suppose. I wonder if they got smoke damage?

Sorry guys, my husband and I ended up catching a random ride to NYC for that day (for the weekend)... I was disappointed to miss the meetup, but I've never been to NYC. Where ya'll are right here.

Or something. Hopefully next time!

Yeah, but the Reverb is gone. There are so many memories that are not accessible to me from that place..
