Shall we play again?

So... the last Toronto meetup at Snakes and Lattes went over well enough with calls to repeat that I thought we might celebrate S&L's considerable expansion/renovation by returning for round II. Does Friday April 26th suit people? [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.

"A pinata full of scorpions."

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?

Toronto meetup!

Hi all. Brujita is visiting our Rob Ford-plagued 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.

Say goodbye to the tiny annoying one!

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

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 meetup at Ceili Cottage at Queen and Leslie

We are overdue for a meetup. The last one, at the Ben Wicks on Parliament, was fittingly genteel. Shall we try for the Leslieville pub with a warm interior and full menu? The Roy, 842 Queen East west of Logan (72 bus by TTC), Thursday, May 5, 2011, at say 19:30 hours? No, we’re doing it at the Ceili Cottage, 1301 Queen East just east of Leslie, Thursday, May 12, 7:30 onward. (Queen streetcar. Jones 83 or Greenwood 31 buses; if you’re coming down after about 9:30, the 31B stops directly across the street at Alton and Queen.)
