Toronto meetup on the horizon

Well, all, we have not had a meetup in a while now, or even a couple of whiles. Patio season is behind us, but Storm Crow Manor is descending upon us. Seems like as good a rationale as any to assemble and have a free-ranging discussion of stuff. [more inside]

Visiting Vermont

Mr. brilliantine and tinybrill and I will be in Vermont to visit family from 10/28 through 10/31. We'll be based in Thetford but will probably do a fair amount of driving to sightsee and shop. Would anyone be interested in meeting up for a meal in that window? Confirmed for BBQ because it sounds delicious even if no one can make it :)

I've never been to Toronto and have never been to a MetaFi meetup, so this could be a big weekend for me. Any Torontonian Mefites free for dinner or drinks Saturday (and/or possibly Friday depending on what time I can get into town)? [more inside]
