Place to meet and mingle Jun 1, 2008

helene, thanks for your note. It should be a great event. I think most of us go to the powwows to meet other language professionals and network and socialize with them. So a restaurant or informal setting like a lounge might serve our purposes well, perhaps somewhere by the waterfront. I am not overly familiar with the area myself, so perhaps others might have concrete suggestions for a venue...

Venue suggestions Jun 2, 2008

I am thinking that of outdoor locations next to indoor locations in case of rain or if we want to get a drink.
1)Wilmot Creek Park at Leslie and Eglinton, on the North-East corner, there used to be the Inn on the Park, I would have to check what it is called now
2) Docks, which also has a new name now, it's in the East end by Cherry street, a bit pricey but a wonderful entertainment complex.
3) I don't know the West-end but there must be lounges or restaurant by the Park

venues Jun 24, 2008

I think it would be nice if we could meet over a meal (either a picnic or restaurant). I will be coming from out of town so I will probably want to grab a bite to eat anyway. I like the waterfront suggestion but I must confess that I don't know Toronto that well.

venues- museum and restaurants Jun 24, 2008

Both the Gardiner Musem and the ROM have great restaurants that could work for the event.

Gardiner/ROM Jun 24, 2008

The restaurants are good, if rather expensive (I'll have to raise my rates again). What's great about both is that they're right on the subway, which will make them easier to get to.

another option Jun 24, 2008

the date chosen also coincides with the Cabbagetown festival, so one of the meny restaurants in the area might be an option (and close to home for me)

Restaurants Jul 5, 2008

I concur that the ROM restaurant is great and expensive. I am a member of the ROM so may be able to negotiate a discount and help get reservation. I will probably know for sure if I can attend or not in a week or two

ROM Jul 5, 2008

Personally, I like the idea of the ROM, it's got my vote! And, it's on the subway so that may be handy for some.

Whistler's Jul 7, 2008

This restaurant looks like a good choice. Brunch sounds good! I think a more casual atmosphere is better too and perhaps they could accomodate a larger group in a more quiet section to facilitate discussion. What say ye, fellow attendees?

Another suggestion Jul 25, 2008

Whenever I have to meet casually with many people, I love RichTree at Brookfield Place (http://www.richtree.ca/). Apart from being central and with easy access, the huge range of options can fit everyone's personal budget, as each one gets what they want using the restaurant's card. Payment is individual and simple, too.
(I'm the "keep it simple" type.)

BTW, I really look forward to meeting other translators. I've been in Ca
