Coincidentally, Wednesdays are my day off.

Yes. Yes I do want to mini-meet up with you. Also, I ate the cookies I baked for your family.

Looks like its just you and I for tomorrow night. I'll be catching the GO at about 4:00 - 4:30. You still in good shape for a meetup or have things changed? Also, I have a kink in my neck. Your special abilities could come in handy...

Delicious at what price though? Remember I am still a $5 lunch sortof mustachian.

There's also the "Hot Shawarma Burger Fighter" at Queen and Gladstone. I know nothing about this place, but it deserves merit based on name alone.

Interest in another Toronto meetup anytime in the next couple weeks? Indoors I suppose, unless the weather gets better
(PATH location like before, unless other suggestions?)

Would people come up to midtown (walking distance from a subway station)?

Give me an intersection. I have no idea what midtown is but I can probably find my way there if the timing is good.

What week/days of the week are good for people?  I'll check when I can get the common room so we have a place to gather (there's a stove and microwave to heat up food, too).

Roughly speaking, anytime in the next two weeks is good for me (before the 23rd). Days and times are free, weekends sometimes fill up

Both Thursdays work for me. Minor preference for the 15th, but the 22nd is almost as good.

Are most people okay with Thu the 22nd?  I just got last-minute notice that a friend + kid will be in town the latter half of this week, and due to them going through some health issues (which I only just learned about) I'd like to see them.  Thumbs up for the 22nd?

Hey! Is there still space? I haven't been able to attend many of the previous meet ups since going downtown on weekday evenings is a challenge for me, but I'd love to attend this if there is still space.

We're sitting down to dinner at 7:00. Earliest I'd get outta here is 8:00. You'll likely be wrapping up by then.

I had to be a lousy host and kick people out at 11:00.  :(  Hopefully the date of the next one works for you!

Thanks for coming out, everyone!  Very nice and interesting mix of old friends and new ones (I think the final count was 15).  I thought it was cool how much we had in common (common geographical points of knowledge, professional connections, etc.)  Hope to meet up again soon!

Thank you Okits for organizing it was great to see such a great combo of new faces and familiar.

WRT one of our wrap up discussions, I remembered another tactic - I decided I would ask one good question or made one good comment in each client meeting or meeting that included my boss that wasn't an all hands meeting. (I dislike most questions in all hands meetings and didn't want to be one of those people)
