    I will be visiting family in Buffalo late this month, which will mean I will be travelling through NYC and be in very close proximity to Toronto.

    Anyone in any of those places want to try to meet up?

    I'm in the city of Buffalo between Saturday, August 20 and Wednesday August 24. I could conceivably drive up to Toronto that Saturday night, and drive back to Buffalo on Sunday.

    I'll be staying in Manhattan from Wednesday, August 24th through Sunday, August 28th. I've never met any Gotham Whitechaplains, and would very much like to!

    Anyone free any time in there?

    Bill, Bill, Bill. We HAVE to hang out.
    I'm almost definitely free Saturday night. I don't have a bed/couch to offer, as I'm still lacking in essential furnitures in my new place, but maybe someone else will cover that angle.

    The 20th? SHOULD work out.

    20th is the target for Toronto, then. I'll get a hotel room to crash in, that's no problem. We'll figure out where to meet as the day gets closer. Looking forward to it!

    I can't host on the 20th, but I'm down for meeting elsewhere.

    Unfortunately I will be out of the country while you are in town.

    I should be available those days in NYC. I always love a good meet up.

    Glukkake! Doctor John Skylar! Oddbill! If we all meet in Manhattan with those names, I don't see how it is possible we don't become a gonzo parareal adventure team.

    Put me down for Toronto, Bill. It would be an honour to see you again.

    I too am in NYC then.

    Anyone got any ideas for where to meet up in Toronto?

    Well... If it's fewer than, say, ten people, I can probably host. Weather permitting, because I have a much nicer yard than I do an apartment. And it'll be BYOSeating, unless we picnic on the flagstones. But, yeah, I think I can get away with it.

    @Oddbill and I were chatting last night and wondering about the Snakes and Lattes place Allanna has mentioned in the past. It is open 'till 4 AM and close enough to bars if we decide we want alcohol.

    Thoughts?

    DAMN IT. It turns out I have an engagement that night that I already agreed to go to before I agreed to go to this.

    Will you be around during the day, Bill? I can meet up with you then and take you to a nice craft beer place for a pint (a pint, if I recall, I owe you). :)

    As far as I know Snakes and Lattes has a liquor license as well.

    @Oldhat - I should be around in the day. My plane lands in Buffalo at something like 9:30AM, and I'll just be driving right from there to Toronto. Provided I don't get the full customs treatment again, I should be at my hotel on Queen Street by around 1PM. I'd love to grab a pre-Snakes & Lattes pint!

    And @all in Toronto- yes, lets meet in the evening at Snakes & Lattes!

    I don't know if I'll be able to, but I'll try and join you Toronto folks.

    Damn it.
    I have family in from out of town for that one day, so I don't think I can make.
    Which is too bad, cause I'd love to see you again oddbill. If memory serves you started the first of the Toronto Meet ups and they have grown quite a bit since then.

    Maybe i'll get lucky and the family will bail early.
