    Any interest in having a Toronto darters (dartians, froggers?, what do we call ourselves exactly :) meet?

    I was thinking something along the lines of meeting at a cafe or for lunch somewhere. Maybe in November or December. Just to get a bit of a community up and running, meeting people in person, asking for advice, trade, etc... And it it goes well, we could turn it into something which happens every couple of months or so.

    Ideally somewhere subway accessible for those who don't see the need of having a car in the city.

    Anyone interested?

    I'd be in for sure, especially if it ends up being at a place that serves cocktails...

    Right downtown would be great, too, but I'm kind of biased, ha ha.

    Somewhere with close access to GO would be perfect.

    If we can do it on a weekend I'd love to take a cruise up the 401 to catch up with and/or meet you guys!

    I would be up for a Go trip, preferably an evening but I suppose I could take an afternoon off.

    So we have a weekend evening near a GO station, then? Works for me.

    Hope to see a bunch of people come out of the woodwork for this.

    Does anyone have an idea of someplace near Union Station that we could get together? I work down there a lot, but I can't really think of a place I'd like to hang out. I guess the company's more important than the location...

    Awesome, go glad to see that there is some interest in this :) I have created a doodle to help pick a date in November: http://www.doodle.com/iibqhvks49kkgqct

    It looks like some place downtown that is near or a couple of stops away from Union station would be a good place. Any ideas?

    ah you just beat me to asking that question :)

    Looking at the doodle, its a bit crazy with too many options. I have a more simplified one here http://www.doodle.com/rpkspcppvi2rn5n4 we can figure out when once we know what day works best for people.

    I created a new doodle to restrict the dates to Nov 16/17/23/24 and have an evening/afternoon choice. Last doodle, I swear :)

    Still don't know where we will meet, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Is there a link to that thing?

    I keep wanting to suggest the library bar at the Royal York for some reason: right across the street from Union Station, and with a classiness befitting froggers, ha ha.

    How about Sunday November 24th at 2:30? I really don't know the area, but the Loose Moose (http://theloosemoose.ca) looks like it could be interesting.

    Sounds good to me. That place is just kitty corner to the train station, too.

    Hopefully this date works for everyone.
