Toronto Meet 2013

When: April 2013
Where: Toronto, ON, Canada

Toronto has not seen a meet in a while which is why I've decided to give a lot of time for people to make commitments. I expect a small showing to be honest, looking for a more mature and reliable crowd. Anyone interested please also PM me.

Should there be a good and cool group interested I will be booking a table at Snakes & Lattes. It is an awesome cafe where you can play any board game you can think of, I think they say they have 1500 in their collection, and they also have a license to serve alcohol if inebriated Risk(or Settlers, which will be even more interesting) is your thing.

For now it will be a one day and short event for anyone living in the city or nearby. If people decide to trek then I'll plan more things to make it worthwhile the trip.

I find that hard to believe. They let anyone in here, they even let Luis in!

They serve alcohol there so bring your ID. If there are enough 'legal' users that attend I know a bunch of cool bars to go to top off the night.

Hopefully some oldcomers will show up for this meet.

Probably some of the same bars I've been to in 2010.

As for hotels; the place most of us stayed in in '10 was the Novotel on Esplanade.

Hahahaha, ha.

I'm hoping the Ripley's Aquarium of Canada will be open by April. It would definitely be a cool place to visit.

I would love to come to Canada, but seeing as the Pico Day meet will also be happening in April, I don't think ill be able to swing it.

I'm game! Although I wouldn't be able to let you know until January, it all depends where I am with college.

This snakes and lattes joint sounds neat.

That's why I am giving lots of time in advance, also this will be on a weekend so it doesn't clash with school/work as much.

It is probably one of the coolest places to hang out. Also ridiculously busy as far as reservations go, they are usually booked up 2-3 months in advance.

Oh I should have considered that!

I'll strongly consider moving it to the summer months.

Careful, it may be way too hot for some people.

I live in the city and I would like to go, but I'll have to wait and see. April will likely be a busy time with college.

No need to worry about me since I'm not going.

Would May or June be better for students?

Well I guess early May or late April would make most sense, like I said this is just trying for a small meet for people in or near Toronto to go to. So this could be for people here that can't go all the way to Montreal for that one.

So I guess for college/university students my question is around when are your exams all over?

For me, it's most likely the end of April.

I've wanted to visit that café ever since I learned of its existence.
I'm moving to TO in January soooo I'll try to remember to... remember this.

It's funny, I logged onto the General forum specifically wondering if there were any TO meets planned and this was on the first page. And you highlighted the place I wanted to visit. So it must be a sign.

Maybe I'll go if someone gives me a ride there. Drinking age is still 18 in Canada, right?

Most provinces are 19+

Quebec might be 18. Ontario is 19 I'm pretty sure :P

Yes.

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>
