Took a brief forum break, but I'm back and planning to attend tonight.  Will aim for 6, could be a bit later as my day has been unpredictable so far, but I'll try!

Any interest in December meetup, drinks, whatever, or is everyone holidayed out?

I was going to reply to you

And I was going to message @okits to suggest hanging out Wednesday daytime at the Christmas market.

And then I thought....why not both? It will be  a very frugal outing because daytime admission is free. It could turn into me having a party with my debit card because of Christmas magic.

Free admission and possibility of day drinking (that's what Christmas magic meant right?)? I'm up for that.
Wednesday Dec 13?

Yes. And yes. I think the earliest I'd be interested in arriving would be 1130-ish, and that is probably the earliest anyone would give us alcohol. What kind of time works for you? I believe Santa's house opens at 2 and we can take photos with our own devices

I strongly suspect others will feel the same way. But if possible I'd like to head home or to a date by early evening. Maybe staying long enough to say hi?

Well - I can't speak to my availability in December, but if anyone wants to come along, I'm going to try to make it to the January session of this: https://beyondtheautomobile.ca/bikeminds/

Looks like the Christmas market opens at noon on Wed.  I'll probably have to leave around 12:45pm to be at a meeting for 2pm, but could meet for 11:30 or a bit earlier for coffee or drinks or an early lunch.

I'm trying to think if the last time I rode a bike.  Possibly it was decades ago.  So would me attending this thing make me a fraud?

Is that two votes for during the day on Wednesday Dec 13th, and one vote for early evening?
If anyone else interested want to speak up by tomorrow (Monday) and we can go with some consensus if that works

(I'm flexible, with slight preference for day / early afternoon, but can ignore my vote)

If everything goes perfectly this week I might be able to meet at 11 or 1130, but I won't likely know until Tuesday evening, so don't make any plans based on me. I likely wouldn't be able to do the evening, as I will be busy talking to someone in return for money. (They get $200 cash, I get a salary and the client gets better ideas based on how people actually use their products, so it is win-win-win.)

Hey, I'm new here.

I would be interested to meet up in Toronto some time. (recently discovered this lifestyle, very intriguing). Wednesday I will only be available after my 9-5 job unfortunately.

Maybe next time!

If Iím the tie breaker, I guess Iíll go with day. Suggestions on where to meet for day drinks/lunch?

Iím selfishly picking day to run an other errand after. But could possibly meet up later if anyone else still out.

Sounds like room for a December Meetup next week too :)

The list of places to go is exhausting... I'm not sure I"m familiar enough with the area to find some of the things that I want to see, but it looks like the Mill Street Brew Pub has tater tots and opens at 11

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...

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.
