It appears to be Allens (or Danforth?) at 8 or 9:00. Dora Keogh next door looks fun to me too.

A. I might need to call someone for directions, as I'm a way-out-of-towner.
B. I don't snore, I'm a "gentleman," and I could maybe use a couch to crash on Saturday night.

Saturday, yes? I'm fairly sure I'll be there this time, barring any unforeseen disasters, although I'm off the jameson and water at the minute.

OH HEY, don't, like, NOT come 'cuz you think Shane's going to insist on sleeping on your floor. I have alternate plans. No wuckin' furries.

I just feel like maybe I'm quashing conversation in this thread or something.

Allen's and Dora Keogh (which are owned by the same people but quite different atmospheres) are both very near Broadview TTC station. Depending on where you're coming from that may be a good choice for getting there.

I'm not going, since I live in Southern California, but I just want to vouch for Shane. He slept on my couch back in 2003, and only once during the night did I have to physically restrain him as he attempt to bugger me in my sleep. He was very polite about the whole thing, and when I made my position on the issue clear, what could have been an awkward situation was made much more bearable as he had absolutely no qualms about going back out the living room and sleeping the rest of the night soundly.

So, in summary: A+++ would allow to sleep on couch any time.

My God, I've killed this entire Meetup by asking for a couch.

Thanks, jonson--I'll be by again next week.

It'd probably help attendance a little if you could confirm the actual date and time and place. Friday or Saturday at 8 or 9 at Allen's or Dora Keogh is a few too many options.

I'll be at the Horseshoe for the Sadies CD release regardless, but if it's early enough, I might be able to stop by for a bit.

jamesonandwater, what time do you figure you'll show?

Stupid question: metafilter meetups... why? What do you guys do? I ask out of ignorance only.

We talk and drink beer.

We talk and drink beer.

Or water. There was a table full of people drinking water at the sole meetup I went to. I felt a bit awkward to keep rushing to the bar. Then everyone went home at 10.30.

I live round the corner Shane, I'll be by at 8.
posted by jamesonandwater at 9:31 AM on September 6, 2006

8 it is, jamesonandwater. I'll have a jamesonandwater ready for you.

MoFi suggests:

The Sadies are playing the Casbah in the Hammer the following Saturday, so it's entirely possible to do both a monkey-meetup AND The Sadies, and not have to sacrifice one for the other.

Assuming Hamilton is the sort of place one goes. 60/snobbery62

In any case, I've already got tickets for the shows in TO.
posted by jacquilynne at 12:07 PM on September 6, 2006

Well, that looked much better in preview.

How does one know which is the MeFi table? Are there hats?
posted by Dipsomaniac at 8:13 PM on September 6, 2006

I'll put a MeFi placeholder-type-thingy, blue with the MeFi logo, on the table (and we'll look like the utter geeks we are.)

Then, obviously, I'll sleep on all of your couchs and snog you in your sleep.

I've got dinner plans with a friend tomorrow night and after that we're going to drop in on a neighbour of hers who's having some friends over. So... it doesn't look like I can go, unless I come away early or something. That's not likely though.

Have fun everyone...
