Hey there, inhabitants of the centre of the universe Toronto, how about another meetup, next week-ish?

I'm up for it. It'll be my first MeFi meetup (be gentle!).

Go drag dobbs out of his house, get him trashed, convince him to come back.

I could potentially be there, I think, assuming you mean next weekendish. If it's during the week, it's still a vague possibility.

crap ... sure its the week AFTER I leave Toronto ... (kicks can in disgust and mopes*) ...

*almost enough to be motivated to coordinate a DC meetup. ...almost...

Yeah, I was thinking next Saturday evening. Perhaps the Bishop & Belcher again, and then I'll get us all on the guestlist for 5ive or Mod Club (well, everyone who'd like to go out for a crazy night), and we'll drink. Heavily.

Though we're relatively new to the Mefi world, popularethics and I would probably be in.

Sounds like fun! I can extract DNA if it gets boring...

I'm in as long as I get a guarantee that my DNA will remain strictly mine.

sounds interesting...

oh no, did everyone else just leave? :-(

Okay, probably. Has anyone notifed MoFi?

BTW, can it be a Satrurday, or at least a Friday? And the week after next is way better for me.

Then again, I'm not even a Torontite.

But I like saying "Torontite." And "Satrurday" too.

I'd be up for something that involves dinner or a pub, for example. But I'm not really interested in spending the evening in a club. I'm not much of a drinker, even less of a dancer, and I like to meet mefites so I can talk to them, not stand beside them, unable to hear what they're saying.

My theory was dinner and TOO MUCH BEER (TM) at a pub, and then for those interested, partying it up with either a bunch of cute homoboys, or a bunch of ambiguously sexual variously gendered people at Mod.

I'm in.

I'm out of town until next Sunday, so considering the vaguely mentioned dates, I probably won't be able to make it. But one day I will make a meet-up, when I am actually in Toronto and not feeling awkward about likely being the youngest person there (being only in university).

Beer, beer, BEER!

Bishop & Belcher, eh? I think I can make it. Friday? (Feb. 18th) Saturday? (Feb. 19th)

Speaking of Queen Street, it's too bad The Duke of Connaught has been gentrified-- we could've gone and basked in its punk scuzzy glory, just like Wheels from Degrassi.

Saturday 26th? Anyone? ;-)
posted by Shane at 12:17 PM on February 14, 2005

This saturday night has been mentioned the most (I think). Bishop and Belcher seems to the clear winner for location (at least, as the first location), does anyone have a specific time in mind?

jacquilynne mentioned dinner, so 8-9pm'ish?
posted by purephase at 3:19 PM on February 15, 2005

8pm sounds fabulous to me. I'll be smarter this time and put up a sign or something, but just in case: we'll be in the basement, and there's pictures of me here.
posted by dirtynumbangelboy at 2:34 AM on February 16, 2005

Whoa, I completely missed this thread. This Saturday? B&B? Signage included? Got it.

You'd be surprised, man.
posted by DrJohnEvans at 9:30 AM on February 16, 2005

Alright. Bishop & Belcher, which is on Queen West between John & Peter, 8pm Saturday.

I'm heading over to 5ive afterwards. Anyone who wants to come is welcome-- but I need a headcount by Saturday afternoonish to work out the guestlist situation with the manager.
