I'm in, and will echo the sentiment, it's been too long.

Alas, we have plans to be in the land of Mighty Taco and Genesee Cream Ale that weekend -- but if they should fall through, I'll be there.

Great idea! What time?

I will be in Toronto for a different thing first - so after dinner would probably be good - like, say, 7 PM?

Hooray! I am for this thing.

I'll try. The schedule is a little uncertain these days.

Damn, it's been ages since I attended a meetup and I'd love to rectify that, but I'm already double booked that night.

All right, I confirmed this.

(If anyone would be up for hosting me overnight? - then I could get a ride into the city & catch a train home the next day - it would save me the drive in the dark & possible crappy weather.)

flex, I can host you in a limited sort of way. Here's the deal. And I won't be offended if you decline this for any reason. Queen sized double-decker air mattress in the living room of my condo. It's a comfortable setup.

I do have a dog and a cat. The dog is gentle and friendly and not too smelly and will sleep in the bedroom with me and my male partner. The cat is also gentle and friendly but the cat WILL cuddle with you all night - this is impossible to prevent. I'm at Church and Wellesley. And I have free underground parking for a guest. We clean regularly but if you have allergies this may be a non-starter....

cranberrymonger, thanks so much for your kind offer! =) I think that could work out very well for me (I'm not fussy & a cat cuddling with me all night is how I usually sleep). I will be in touch with you through MeMail as I sort out my arrangements.

Would anyone like to get dinner with me somewhere in the area of the meetup this evening? Suddenly I have found out I will be available from about 5 PM on today =) and I would be happy to maximize my visiting time with lovely Toronto MeFites.
posted by flex at 10:18 AM on January 23, 2016

Oh, rats. We're tied up until 6:00 to 6:30 or so.

Well, I am at Fresh on Spadina and will be for a while =) if anyone is in the area!
posted by flex at 2:12 PM on January 23, 2016

Hey flex, you still at Fresh on Spadina? I live in the area and I can be there in 15 minutes. I'll Memail you my contact.

I am still here! Just finished some delicious tacos =D

tickingclock & I are at the Jason George, in our usual spot!
posted by flex at 4:00 PM on January 23, 2016

Our arrival is imminent. See y'all momentarily.

I'm on my way

Thank you to all for a lovely time (and to flex for the best back skritches this side of anywhere)! My hallucination also had a great time and would like to convey his thanks for your belief in him.

Thanks to everyone who made it out! Another awesome meetup and I was so glad to see you all. Super thanks to cranberrymonger for hosting me overnight!

Per our plans last night, l will schedule a February date for our Kinky Boots outing & a March weekend house party meetup at my place very shortly =)

This was great fun. Thanks for organizing, flex.

I wish I could have been there, but in a not particularly surprising turn of events, law school is, like, hard and stuff.
posted by jacquilynne at 6:03 PM on January 25, 2016

Mr. Conspiracy informs me that Kinky Boots' run in Toronto has been extended to May 16. As of the other night, it was slated to end in early March.
