Hey Toronto peoples,
I'm holding a small meetup for fans of my comic this Saturday at Hair of the Dog Pub. Looks like it's going to be pretty quiet, but I'd love to meet some mefites if anyone wants to drop by.

With the Olympics comes people saying "hey, Curling looks strange / fun / silly

Hi all. My tenant is hosting the karaoke at the Jekyl and Hyde
pub at 2340 Dundas Street West (Dundas West station) this coming Thursday night, starting at 10 p.m. I've promised him I'll show my support by showing up in my best landlady garb (complete with a worn, faded, half-buttonless housedress, scuzzy slippers, curlers, and one of my eighteen mangy cats in tow), and do my best rendition of "Live to Tell". And I'd like to have some fun people to hang out with between numbers. Does anyone want to come out for karaoke? The Jekyl and Hyde is a Firkin-like pub, the DJ's karaoke playbook is reportedly huge, and I'm told there aren't a lot of people who come to Thursday night karaoke, so you'll get the chance to sing several songs if you like. Or you can just point and laugh at those of us who do. We could also meet earlier than 10 p.m.
The recent Cards Against Humanity post
on the blue got me thinking: anyone in Toronto and nearby up for a Snakes and Lattes meetup for some games (of CaH and/or others diversions)? I am going to pitch next Friday the 28th, but I am open to other suggestions for date. Who's in?
My friends' Mexican/Portuguese pop-up, Oxala
, is turning 1 year old! Help us celebrate at La Revolución in the Junction (fb event

Hi all. Brujita
is visiting our
fair city October 22 to November 11. Would anyone like to get together to say hello to her, imbibe assorted beverages, and generally hang out? Her visit gives us a generous window of time, and as to the venue I will only say we should pick something central — I'll ask brujita where she's staying so we can narrow it down to a place convenient to her.

MeFi Toronto, I'm relatively new to your city, and I was thinking it would be cool to meet up with you this summer. What do you think?
A whopping eight months after setting foot in Toronto to examine people's financial statements and tell them how they're doin' it wrong, I went and landed myself a job in the US doing stuff that's much more up my alley. Pending approval by our friendly neighbourhood border service agents, I will be leaving Toronto for the brighter pastures of North Carolina in about eight weeks. I'd like to see my favourite Toronto-KWC-Buffalo-ans sometime before I leave. March 31st, 8 PM, Local 4. Be there. [more inside]
The Real Secrets Show presents engaging comedic storytelling from some of Toronto's finest performers, offering up stories of secrets they've kept and the impact they've had on their lives. Audience members and performers alike mask their identity and sign binding non-disclosure agreements at the door to create a safe circle of sharing. The Real Secrets Show presents the cathartic power of unburdening combined with hilarity to create a truly one-of-a-kind event. [more inside]
Toronto's Indie Comedy Hour is a show that you have to see at least one time. It's fun, it's low-key and it's held in a really nice venue, No One Writes To The Colonel (they have some bitchin' mojitos).

Each show closes out with an open mic showcasing up-and-comers who may be featured acts in upcoming editions of the Indie Comedy Hour.

- Avery Edison
- Jon Kane
- Blair Streeter

PLEASE NOTE: If you're not interested in Scotch, really just consider this a regular MeFi pub meetup... because it pretty much is! No obligation to drink any Scotch at all. More like... bonus whisky for those into that sort of thing. [more inside]
The magazine I edit is throwing itself a one-year birthday party in downtown Toronto. There will be cake and music and drinks. A selection of the Canadian SF who's who will be in attendance. Admission is free, though donations are always welcome. Stop on by. More details.
Occupy Toronto is marching from St. James Park next Saturday (Nov. 12th) at 2 PM.
