Venue suggestions? Jan 6, 2014

I'll throw out the same old ones I always suggest:
Granite Brewery (Mt. Pleasant/Eglinton), The Bishop and the Belcher (Church/Bloor), Peridot (Yonge/Bloor), Against the Grain (Distillery), Stout (Carlton/Parliament). Please indicate your preference (or throw a new venue into the mix).

away Im afraid Jan 7, 2014

have fun!

BTW, Peridot has closed down, so probably not a good spot...

Near the subway Jan 7, 2014

Anywhere close to a subway stop is good. Too bad about Peridot, I like that place.
If anyone wants to try Japanese food, Fin Izakaya at Yonge and Eglinton is good, but a tad pricey.

Venue and time Jan 14, 2014

If we exclude the suggestions that are not on the subway line, only a few remain: Fin Izakaya (Eglinton station), The bishop and the Belcher (Younge and bloor) - and (just added) the Pour House (Dupont station).
Timewise, should we go for 6:30 p.m. as usual?
Please weigh in!

Venue and time Jan 14, 2014

Lunchtime works better for me because I can get in from Guelph and back by train. I can't do that in the evening. But I realize I'm probably in the minority here.

Of the suggested venues, I would prefer the Bishop and Belcher or the Pour House.

I prefer the afternoon too. I would love to attend but if we change it to the evening I may not be able to as I have a friend coming in from out of town later that evening.

I vote for the Pour House.
I am okay for either the afternoon or the evening, but since it is a Friday I gather most people would prefer the evening.

Pour House at 6:30 p.m. January 31st Jan 15, 2014

Since I can't be there at lunch (rarely can), for this time we'll meet in the evening. If someone wants to organize our next powwow for lunch or early afternoon , please feel free to do so.
The Pour House is about a 3 minute's walk east on Dupont from Dupont Station. It is spacious and they do individual bills.

In the end Feb 3, 2014

only 4 of us found the way to the PourHouse on Friday (slightly embarassing, since I had booked tables for 10-12).

I would really appreciate it if you could send a message, even last minute, that you won't be coming.
