As far as cool places to chill it is the place to go, so that'd be awesome if you can remember this Zerok even though it is still quite a while from now.

I think it'd be best to set this either the last weekend of April or first weekend of May. It'd be mostly a matter of which weekend more people can make it to I would think. To book the place needs about 2-3 months in advance, for that time I'll say most likely 3.

I'll do what I can. Maybe put it in my iCal. That should do it.

MONTHS?! Wow, is it crowded like 24/7 or what? I was hoping to make it my little hideaway spot. </dreams>

To reserve tables for a group, there are walk-in tables which have some wait time depending on when you go but of course that is not a good option for a larger group. If you look at the reservations page they are already booked up pretty much into January right now.

Look - If you want people to go, you can't put it in June because Montreal does its meet then (and has for quite a while) and you can't put it last weekend of April because a lot of us go down to Philidelphia for pico day. I'm sure I could get quite a few ppl from here in Montreal to go to Toronto, but not around those dates.

Well I mostly intend this to be a smaller and more local meet to sort of build a core community for NG members in Toronto and places close by. If we can establish that then we can start looking to do the annual big thing like Montreal does. For now it'd just be cool for the user local to here to get connected.

Necrobump

That is actually a pretty good idea in all honesty, it'd be nice to meet some NGers in the GTA.

As long as you're not a sloppy drunk, at the start of the night at least. As the night progresses anything goes.

Which weekend is best for most people, I'm thinking late April or early May so any of those last 2 or first 2 weekends, ready set go!

Also if anyone is interested they are screening The Room on March 15. http://www.theroyal.to/films/room/

April 26th,27th weekend is the best time for me.

S&L stopped doing pre-bookings so I don't know how that'll work.

So for things to do maybe something wholesome: ROM, Aquarium(fingers crossed it is open by then), AGO(lame), catch an improv show
Less wholesome: Bars, tour a brewery(Distillery district), bars, Horseshoe Tavern

S&L if we can get in.

If anyone knows anything cool happening feel free to add. I'll check out events happening that weekend.

So it's settled then?

We long distance travelers need certainty.

Why can't we do a Halifax meet? (Probably because me and Zerok would be the only people to show up...)

Unless there is a fairly clear schedule of events (like in the 2010 meet and many others) I probably won't be going.

I should be around. Friday's a bit of a crazy day in the daytime, but evening shouldn't be too bad. Lemme know.

So did this already happen or is it going to happen? School's more or less over for me, now.

OP's been gone from this thread for nearly two months - And 11 days from the forums altogether.

So unless he returns, or a high profile user (mod/admin) takes over, this thing is a no-go.

It got really nice out on Friday/Saturday and I mayyyy have forgotten about this :)
I'm still happy to chill with some of you silly Internet folk sometime while I'm in the city, but I won't have the time to organize it.

All this recent news of the flooding in Toronto is starting to make me miss the place.

I'm starting to consider just going there in the early fall - About the same time as the 2010 meet.

Basically, it would be like a recap of 2010 and its events.

Thoughts?
