TorontoMeetupReminder!

As posted here. I'm entirely busy all day Sunday, so the 18th (Saturday) it'll have to be. Well, unless nobody else is available then, obviously.

So:

1) Saturday December 18th, 7pm.
2) The Bishop & Belcher (Queen West, south side, just east of Peter).
3) ??????
4) BEER


No, there will be no profit. Just beer.

Well, y'know, unless anyone has problems with this plan.

4) BEER

Perfect introduction. You are welcome.

Shall be there, barring any freak act of fate. Er, is this place going to be quiet enough so that we can actually talk? I must warn you, if it's so loud we have to yell at each other to be heard, I'll limit myself to drinking and sulking.

Not that this won't be enjoyable in its own way.

I'll be probably there. Promise not to feed me too much Guinness then dress me in brown pyjamas and play pin the tail on the donkey. K? Tks.
posted by Shane at 2:52 PM on December 11, 2004


Sure. Just buy the first round.
posted by joelf at 3:10 PM on December 11, 2004


Oh yeah, the B&B is definitely fine for talking

*weep*

I probably won't be able to make it. I have a "going away for the rest of your life" party for a good friend who's moving to Australia.

Have fun. Post pictures when the gig is up!

Belcher has great food for a pub. Enjoy!

Glad someone finally made a decision.

See you there.

Can someone post a public transit clue for a non-Torontonian, please?
posted by zadcat at 12:00 PM on December 12, 2004


It's at 361 Queen St. W. You can either take the subway (Yonge/University line) to Osgoode Stn. and walk west on Queen, or to Spadina (Bloor subway line), go south on a Spadina streetcar to Queen, and walk east.

Thanks, but I didn't even sneeze. You Canucks are so polite compared to Americans.

Hey, I'm a newbie and I'm making it happen :D

Newbies can come. But they must be prepared for spankings.

Ouch.
I must drop by though, I've been reading mefi for a while. Though of course I don't know anybody.

Have we got a table booked or something? How are we going to tell where we are supposed to be?
posted by joelf at 1:08 PM on December 17, 2004


Oh, didn't think of that.

I'll make a sign. "METAFILTRATES HERE"
posted by dirtynumbangelboy at 1:24 PM on December 17, 2004


I was wondering. I was thinking of making up an airport limo sign saying "METAFILTER" but didn't want to get kicked out (or cut off).
posted by DrJohnEvans at 11:18 PM on December 17, 2004


AAAAAAAGH!

I can't make it tonight. Unexpected stuff.

But I'm TOTALLY THERE if we do one in January. ANY date; I'll plan around it.

Sorry! I'm bummed. REALLY bummed. I love visits to Toronto.

You folks all please have a damned great holiday :-)

If Shane's not going, then I'm not going.

Just kidding. On my way out the door.
posted by DrJohnEvans at 3:56 PM on December 18, 2004


i'm not going either

PICTURES? EMBARRASSING ANECDOTES?

SPILL!
posted by Shane at 5:38 PM on December 19, 2004


There were no pictures. But at the risk of being kicked out of the Toronto cabal, I'll throw you a bone, Shane.

Dirtynumbangelboy and joelf left early and together. Presumably to do dirty, numb, angel boy type things.

Heh!

Gossip on strangers...

Yehhaawww! That's what I like to hear!

you dirty, naughty things, you!

Please do post if there will be a Jan. meetup. I'd love to come.

SPILL!


How'd you know? I knocked a half-full pint glass over, missing orange swan by about six inches.

I got the lowdown here
posted by joelf at 12:26 AM on December 21, 2004


Wow. I missed out on Santanarchy? I'm so bummed. But January sounds good.
posted by Shane at 10:22 AM on December 21, 2004


Okay, that's... nuts.
