Reasonable number. If people are ok with sitting on a combination of dining chairs / camping chairs / yoga mat / floor, my offer still stands!

I'm down!

Also happy to attend providing I'm around - out of the country until March 6th. But y'all have fun without me if you do hang out!

We can postpone, it will only be by a week or so.
How about March 8th? Any time after 6pm.

March 8th works for me! Location? (perhaps worthy of private messaging if you're not comfortable posting for all to see on forum)

I'll check Momma's schedule, but the 8th looks Okely-dokely from here, neighbour.

Should I bring some visuals for the Amazingly Mustachian Waterfront Trail ride?

March 8th it is!
I would prefer private messaging for address and full details, but it is a (very) short walk from Union station.
Yes please to visuals!

Hello Toronto!
I've been on the MMM beat since 2011, but I've never been to the forum. Happy to realize there are more Mustachians in this city than previously thought!
Would love to meet all you wonderful people on March 8th, please PM me Michalit20!

Hey everyone, I'd love to join you as well on March 8. Micalit20, would you mind inviting another stranger to your home? I'm new to the Forum - been reading MMM for a year and wanting to meet up with others. I too work on Bay st in finance. Too few Mustachians in the industry, so it will be nice to meet others!

Hi all,

Attended the last event, but won't be able to make it on March 8.  Hope you guys have fun!

If you don't see me post before the next event, then please feel free to private message me about it.

So let's say you were going to a MMM meetup at some dude's apartment and needed to put together a power-point of a kick-ass cycling adventure. Lets say you were doing that, and you wanted to make sure everyone got the info they needed, what would you put in the power-point?  And strictly speaking, would it be proper to wear a viking hat while presenting, or would other attire be more appropriate?

Terrible, terrible news. You aren't the only one who will miss this.

Last night the grade 2 concert at our kids' school was postponed due to the 'storm of the century' that entirely missed us. That has little bearing on this social event except that it was rescheduled to March 8th.

Sorry guys, but the kids hafta come first.

If we have a 'thing' in April, I can share my ideas then. Alternatively, I'll save the slides to googledocs and give everyone a link - which I was going to do anyhow.

I know I expressed interest already, but please add me to the guest list.

Alternatively, we can find a place without a max capacity.

The board game place worked well last time.

I agree! A bigger space would be more welcoming and no clean up!

Apologies everyone, I somehow stopped receiving notifications of all the correspondence in this thread!
Still ok with hosting, but happy with whatever the group wants to do - if people prefer a different location just let me know where and when and I'll be there.

Thought you had disappeared and worried about whether we were on or not. If you're still cool with hosting, then I say let's have it at your place - unless the group grows too big for you. I'm happy to bring a few drinks and share with the group. Also, would you mind sending me the address? I got locked out of a my previous account and had to open a new one :( so I'm not sure if you had already sent out private messages to everyone.

Can't wait for the damning evidence to come forward from the meetup - who is responsible for filming and publishing?

Have a great time guys! Tomorrow I'll start a new thread on the cycling event in the spring and link to it here.

Actually, looks like April 19th (Tuesday) is the only day that doesn't work for me that week :(
Any other day would be great.
I am more than happy to host again, everyone's welcome, the more the merrier.
Sure, we could do a potluck-type evening, but to be clear - I did not feel I was being "too generous" last time :)
Looking forward to it!

Perfect! Monday, April 18th it is! Let's aim for 6:30pm-ish start time, as previously?
Please indicate on this thread or send me a message to indicate you will attend (and if you plan to bring something - maybe what you think you'll bring so we don't have too much of the same. Again - no expectation!).
I will send a message with the address a few days prior to the meet up.

Oh, and I'm bringing a friend of mine who does not follow the forum consistently, but is still into MMM.

Not sure what I'll bring. Something fruit or veggie related? I hate purchasing platters, so maybe a box of clementines?

Michalit - does your building have a party room by any chance? Just in case a lot of people end up wanting to come?
Valerie - love homemade guac!!!
