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]

My First Meetup: Toronto edition

I'm on a roundabout drive from NYC to Minneapolis and will be stopping in Toronto from Friday 12th October til Sunday the 14th. 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]

Folly Brewpub Trivia

Since a few people expressed interest who couldn't make it last time, trivia is on again this Tuesday at Folly Brewpub. Trivia starts at 7pm, but I'm generally there from 6:30. Last time we had a resounding win, so we need to try to retain our crown. Very low stakes, only a round of beer, but always fun.

Folly Brewpub Trivia

Mr Kris10_b and I have been going to trivia at Folly Brewpub on College St, but there haven't been many people showing up. I was wondering if anyone woukd like to join us for the next trivia night on 11th September so we can have a few more team members, or possibly another team. The prize is just a round of beers, but they have a good range of questions and it's always a fun night.

Evolutionary Analysis book club

A biology book club I'm part of in Toronto is going to be starting Freeman and Herron's Evolutionary Analysis. We read a chapter of a textbook a month (more or less), and answer the end-of-chapter questions. We also try to find a paper related to the chapter to discuss. Everyone is welcome; when we did Albert's Molecular Biology of the Cell, we had everyone from people who had zero biology background to biology Ph.D.s attend. Sometimes we stick to the subject of the chapter, and sometimes the discussion is wide-ranging. It's held at Toronto's Hacklab, which strives to be an inclusive and welcoming space. [more inside]

Anyone up for a karaoke-theme Toronto meetup?

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.
