    If you enjoy drinking heavily and talking shite with other comic fans, join us at the Pauper's Pub (Bloor & Lippincott, right by Bathurst Station) in Toronto on Saturday night. We'll be kicking off about 6pm and continuing for as long as we feel like it.

    I will *try* to be there... providing my DM will let me out of Saturday night D&D without penalty. He'd better, 'cause I've been eyeing up those other Whitechapel meet-ups with envy.

    I should be there a little early (5:30 or so), as I'm going comic shopping in the 'hood. Also, the biggest tables should be near the back on the main floor (by the dartboards - if you feel like a round of darts). Migh try to cojole my buddy Krondor to come out and have fun.

    I will definitely be there. Might be a little tired as I'm planning on walking there from Scarborough, but I'm a tough old hag and should be fine (though once I sit down I won't be getting up for a while).

    Two points of interest:

    -BMV is selling 4th Edition D&D books for $14 a pop. Wouldn't have mentioned it, but I noticed Redwynd's post. MUCH better than the $40 they usually go for.

    -Sunday night at the Toronto Underground Theatre they'll be playing a double feature of The Wizard and The Last Starfighter. If you're like me and grew up on those video game things, you might like to come along!

    I know what Oldhat and Hex look like, so I shouldn't have any problem finding you guys. I'll be the one in the Australian cowboy hat.

    Well, my buddy Krondor* can't make it, as it's "date night" with his wife. But he may join us in future.

    * Krondor is not his real name. But it is his Warrior Name. Sorry, private joke, carry on ...

    You guys need to stop doing things until I turn 19, okay?

    @oldhat,

    Thanks for the advice, but I've actually sworn off buying books for a while - if I get any more, I'll need to buy a new bookcase, which means getting a new apartment to have room for the bookcase, etc etc.

    Looks like I'm going to be coming, but I might be a bit late. I'm nominally supposed to be at work until 6, but I may be able to take off a bit early. I'll look around for you lot when I get there, but when you see the blonde guy in glasses and an oversized hoodie (with a Freakangels bag), pull me over to the table.

    @ Redwynd - Like I said, we'll probably be near the back and don't worry, take your time. We'll likely be there for quite a while.

    i'd be there if i could, but i probably can't. do it again next month, right?
  4.  (9164.13)
    Soon, if not next month.

    Had a great time last time, shame I am out of town this weekend.
    @DJ - I don't think you'll have an issue at paupers if don't order alcohol (or maybe even if you do if Mister Hex is correct)

    First round of the next meet up is on me!

    Peter

    Small change for me. I'll be there by about 7. My DM, lover of the short notice, has announced a game going on this saturday afternoon and has threatened killing off characters whose players can't reliably show up.

    I'll see you all in an hour or so.

    [edit] I'm Ian, BTW, so you don't have to feel like a knob yelling "Hey Greasemonkey" when you spot me coming in the door.

    Well, wasn't THAT fun?





    Ian, hope we gave you a warm welcome.

    Peter and Lucien, was a great pleasure to meet you guys.

    Patrick, Great seeing you again. And the Moon Knight comic you suggested was a damn good one. Guess I'll be buying that Omnibus!
