Confirmed date - Toronto GTG, Saturday, Sept. 26, 2009, will you join us?

Jump to last reply

We take great pleasure in informing everyone the date of the third annual Toronto Get Together (GTG) will be Saturday, September 26, 2009. The location will be the Hot House Restaurant, located at the corner of Front St. and Church St. in downtown Toronto (the same location as last year). For those who need a landmark, it is two blocks from the St. Lawrence Market.
 
In August 2008, about 35 Fodorites met for an evening of socializing and sharing. This is not an "exclusive club", rather a group of folks who share a passion for travelling or talking about travelling. Most of us had never met each other prior to August 2008. There is no initiation fee, hazing or pyramid sales involved. You and your significant other (if you have one) are invited. If you enjoy Fodor's forums, you will probably enjoy meeting other posters in person.
 
Those who arrived early sat in the restaurant for a refreshing afternoon libation. Most arrived around 6:00 p.m. and made their way into a reserved special function room at the Hot House where we couldn't disturb other patrons. The Hot House had a number of menu choices available (average cost around $25). We socialized, supped, shared stories then socialized more. Katie_H (Fodor's editor) had generously arranged a few door prizes to be available. Thanks again Katie.
 
After dinner, Moolyn graciously offered her nearby residence for those who hadn't finished chatting with newfound friends.
 
The organizing committee from last year (moolyn, kodi, LJ - apologies if we have forgotten anyone) did a wonderful job making everyone feel comfortable and welcome.
 
Your next step?? Check your calendars to see if you are available. If you are, please check the gtg thread on the Canada forum to see the details coalesce . To contact our loosely composed organizing committee please email us at Torontogtg@live.ca. In the coming months those attending will likely post any good hotel rates they find if people need to stay overnight.
 
We have established this thread on this forum in case there are any who do not frequent the Canada forum, but would like to attend.
 
Any questions - please join us on the Canada forum, ask and we'll do our best to answer
