Hi plainjane,

Sorry for the late reply, Is there space for my husband and I to join for dinner too? If not we will see you in the park

I'm in Toronto right now. May I invite myself in? If there's no room on the restaurant reservation, I could join y'all at the park.

Everyone is welcome.  I'm sure we can get them to add another couple of seats to the table.

At the park. I assume you're all still eating. I'm wearing a charcoal grey CBC shirt

Was great to see everyone who was able to make it.  Thank you tomatops for tracking us down when we didn't shift on schedule to the park.

Apparently DH has already seen the zany dog-cat fountain.  Looks like I'm the last to know!

Nice meet up tonight.  :)  Hope to see you all at a future one!

I can picnic during daylight hours. Once the mosquitoes come out I become a blood buffet for them, so I retreat indoors when it gets dark out (after sunset we could do PATH food court again or coffee shop).

The Thai restaurant plainjane introduced us to last time was great, FYI.  In case anyone else coming combines MMMeet ups with their indulgent social spending.

Depending how many and when, I can host a picnic on my apartment terrace at Church and Wellesley. We're fairly mosquito free as we're surrounded by concrete. If they do come out or it rains, we can head indoors.

I can probably host up to 12 people.

Great idea!

Now we need to figure out when and what to bring. Based on the recent pics of Borat that were floating around I already know what I'm wearing.

Wednesday, August 2nd?

I get off work nearby at 5, usually home by 5:15. So I can properly tidy my apartment, we can start this shindig at 5:45pm?

Note I don't have much in the way of kitchenware or blankets (minimalist), so people will have to bring things to eat and sit on outside.

I have ample amounts of paper towel and if we proceed indoors, plenty of chairs. Can also offer soda, coffee, tea, and tap water.

I'm in for Wed Aug 2nd!  Probably get there 6:15-6:30pm. 

Are we doing potluck or bring-your-own-dinner plus treats to share?

I think the bring your own dinner plus treats is the way to go!

Anyone else interested in attending the meetup, please respond to this thread or on the FB group. I'll private message the address.

Fantastic! By my count it looks like 4-5 people, which is a good size. I also own plenty of board games as an option. Will DM address...

Hey folks!

I'm a long time reader, but new to the forums! Looks like there is a good little Toronto mustache community!
I'm out in south Etobicoke, and would love to join a meetup at some point! Following for future meetups!

@Canuckexpat, just read all of your blog! Won't be able to make the meet up tonight, but wanted to say super inspiring stuff! DH and I are planning kiddos in the next little while and I especially liked your posts about the costs of child raising!

Great chatting with and meeting everyone yesterday. Thanks for hosting tomatops.

Glad you liked it kaypinkhardhat, good luck on your journey to FI. FWIW, we left early cause the kids were getting tired and acting up. By the time we got them home and in bed, wife was tired out as well. I mentioned something about "aren't you glad you don't have to work tomorrow", and she had totally forgot that people would have to work tomorrow.. if that's any inspiration :)

@CanuckExpat, I was actually out last night at a comedy show which turned into a games night which could have lead to kareoke, and I had to head home instead of kareoke due to work in the morning...it will be very interesting one day to not have to!
