    It's time to throw another of our legendary Toronto Whitechapel shindigs. Menu this time will include roast lamb and vegetables, Australian beer, and vegemite crackers for those brave enough to try them. I'll be providing the food this time around, so just bring alcohol and herbage according to your taste. Venue will be my apartment in downtown Toronto, time and date are negotiable at this time.

    So, is there a weekend in November that suits everyone, or at least most of you?

    [additional, for newbies: if you have allergies, be aware that I have two cats and will be smoking throughout the night.]

    Well, I have no way of knowing how bogged down in schoolwork I will be come November, it's pretty unlikely I'll have trouble attending any given night. So I'll leave this one with you guys and simply confirm that, yes, I will show up again.

    I nominate Nov 12.

    That said, I can do any weekend except the first one(Nov 5th)

    Atlantic Ocean, I will defeat you in March.

    12th suits me, far as I'm aware at this time. I'll start saving up some cash now, so I can make a proper stay in town and take a look around this time (and, you know, afford an actual motel for the night!)

    This is, of course, always assuming my countrymen haven't sealed the borders by then.

    I actually really don't know if I'll be able to make it or not. That's too far off in the future for me and, as a freelancer, I have no clue whether or not I'll be working or not. I'll know better as the date gets MUCH closer.

    well, i'm not so picky as far as a date, if'n you don't mind me darkening your door again...the lamb sounds excellent and we've already seen you're a good cook...as long as it all gets sorted the week before i can make sure i have money for more beer, or whiskey, or something like that....

    Lucien, you're always welcome to darken our doorstep.
  4.  (10207.10)
    Interested. I like me some Whitechapel and I am sure that the folk here won't harm me too much. I like to drink and things.

    @mrmartine: my email is p0lym0rph@mail.com - drop me a line when we've finalised the details.

    Wonder where Hex has gone. He's usually all over anything involving debauchery.

    I suggest an earlier meet-up in early October at the Town Crier for some wonderful La Trappe Quadrupel.

    ...or C'est What for a whole assortment of wonderful local brews. Including PUMPKIN ALE!

    I think I could make one meetup, dunno about both. Depends entirely on funding/job situation.
  6.  (10207.15)
    Yes, unfortunately November is the soonest I'm able to host again. I'm up for another night at the Town Crier in October though, provided there're no family obligations at the time.

    Oh, I wasn't thinking one of our big all night Meets, just a casual, maybe during the day thing. Alan, if you're going to pick any of the meets, November is the one you'll want.

    You're probably right, especially if it'll be during the day - I'd need to leave at something like two in the morning to make that!

    I want pumpkin ale. Town Crier was good, but we should try to circulate.

    well i have a birthday in october, and although i couldn't give two shits about birthdays really, i hear i can get some free booze out of the bar for it, sooo....
    also @greasemonkey, it'd be a pleasure to darken your door in november, if the boozing doesn't happen earlier.
    i suppose i should find out what day the 28th of october falls on.

    Any votes for the date of our next pub meet-up? I'll be busy on Thanksgiving and Halloween.
