OK, let me see if I've got this straight. We now have:

Sarge
goddesstogo and Mr. goddess
ElizabethS and Mr. S
Moolyn & Mr. Moolyn
Cattogo
SusaninToronto and JohninToronto
Mathieu
teacherCanada
kodi
Sandy
irecommend and irec's mom

That makes 16. Do I have everyone?

Now, here's my problem. Starting tomorrow and till the end of the week, I'll have long hours at work. Would someone please call the Hot House and make our reservation for 16 people? I think it was at 15 last time I called. I just called a moment ago but got no answer and I know I won't have time to do it tomorrow. Thanks so much!

Welcome to Toronto,Sarge! Sorry it's so nippy here. I hope you brought warm enough clothes. If not, let me know and I'll bring you a couple of sweaters.

We'll be driving a little red Scion XD. Can't wait to see you again!

That would be great, jamierin (do you live in Erin?). Do you mind calling the restaurant and adding yourself to the reservation?

Just confirming that I will be attending; I said in my original post that I'd confirm early in the week but couldn't do so until today, and I'm already included in the current number attending. Looking forward to seeing everyone - old and new !

Have a great time everyone. I am so envious of your meeting up, especially after a wonderful few days in kodi's company and meeting irecommend. I'll have to organise a GTG in NZ but it will need to wait until next year.

Now THAT was a fun GTG! I so enjoyed the conversations I had but I'm sorry I didn't get to talk to everyone. Next time we'll have to figure out a way to change up the seating mid-meal.

Elizabeth, I'm sorry you couldn't make it. I hope you're feeling better now. We'll catch you next time.

Sarge, you're a delight! I hope you got to the market. I'm sorry we couldn't join you there -- it's one of my favourite places in Toronto and I really did need to do some shopping but duty called. SO had to get to his office and I still had conference duties to take care of. I trust you got back to your hotel safe and sound.

Thanks, everyone -- it was swell!

I really had a good time. It was great to see friends, old and new.
Goddess, thank you so much for organizing it.

Dotty, I wish you could have been here.

Sarge, enjoy your stay in Toronto. As I drove past the market on my way home, I was hoping too, that you made it there.
I just might see you in Texas one of these days !

Thanks to all the Fodor friends that made it, and those who tried!

It was really great to meet a lot of the folks and put faces/names to user names.

It was a blast and I'm looking forward to the next one! Perhaps I'll get another chance to come back. I love the St. Lawrence market! It was awesome! Can't wait to explore the others!

Thanks again to Goddesstogo and Mr. GTG for picking me up at my hotel. Very sweet of you two! I had no problem finding the King subway station to get home!

Thank you, Toronto!!! Hope to see you all in Texas... soon!

It was such a pleasure to see old Fodor friends and meet some new ones!

Sarge, I'm so glad you made it to the market!

So glad John and I were able to make it and meet everyone. We really enjoyed it and next time, we will have to change up the seating and make sure we can chat with everyone.

It was wonderful meeting Sarge and everyone else on Saturday, and I too regret that I didn't get to chat longer to many at the other end of the table. However we can look forward to the next time.

Thanks for arranging this Goddess. Nice seeing you again, and much enjoyed chatting to Mr. Goddess as well.
