Meetup in Toronto, Nov. 11, 2005 October 25, 2005 6:29 AM   Subscribe

Toronto MeFites, let us convene and imbibe. I propose 8 p.m.-ish on the night of November 11 for the time, and the Bishop & Belcher (on Queen West between John & Peter) as the venue, but feel free to reject my arbitrarily selected time and/or venue and appoint your own through some messy and quarrelsome yet democratic process. Time and place are trivial matters compared to the real issue at stake, namely: will Dobbs appear or will he do his usual tease & withhold?

But wouldn't that mean I'd have to park in that lot again?

/me faints.

Hmmm, could we perhaps arrange an honour guard of MeFite cars around yours?;-)

Holy hell this could well be my first night out as a Canadian resident. Consider this paddy there (or wherever "there" ends up being).

Aw, shucks: I'll be in Halifax that week.
Have fun, everyone. And welcome to Canada, jamesonandwater!

Hey now! I tried to meet loquax in your first link there. He was the no show--chose a DVD over my company!

As for the 11th, I'm currently a no-go but that could change.

That's true, I can vouch for dobbs. You've characterized him unfairly!

I think I'm in, unless things change...

Ah, well.

Gonna be in Toronto tomorrow through part of Sunday, had a fleeting moment of hope there.

I'd go, but I'm unavailable that weekend.
Maybe next time...

Who's gonna bring the digital camera?

Sounds like fun. Count me in!

I will likely be there. Are we sure about 8pm, Nov 11, Bishop & Belcher?

No one seems to be suggesting otherwise. I'll post a reminder a day or two before the happy event.

Sounds jolly good. I like the B&B.

(FWIW, I think everyone - well those somewhat centrally located - should look out the window at 11am Friday the eleventh to see the Lancaster bomber fly overhead for the Remembrance Day ceremonies. The plane is unlike anything else I've seen in Toronto.)

We can only hope.
