Default Boozing and Schmoozing @ The Scotland Yard (Friday May 8th)

People of BE

The snow has all but melted. The weather is almost above zero on a daily basis and May is renowned for being the time of year where sweet potato fries are at their sweetest.

What does all this gibberish mean?

Drinks and Dinner at the Yard.

Scotland Yard Pub
56 The Esplanade
Toronto, ON M5E 1A6

I'm calling Friday May 8th. This should give us potential time for one more before Novo's bon voyage.

Usually congregation begins around 5.30 in the library section. The library section is through the main door, towards the bar, then left then left again.

There is a Novotel across the street if you need a room for the night.

There is also decent parking. As you come on to Yonge street north from Lakeshore Boulevard take the first right on to the Esplanade and then right again and there is a fixed fee car park straight ahead that you can't miss.

The pub is also a short 10 minute stroll from Union.

Questions?

Questions?
Metaphysically speaking, why doesn't the Yard stock any British beer?

Agenda item #1, before dinner.

(yes I'll be there).

Questions? Should I behave myself this time and not get totally trashed?

Apart from that, yeah, I should be there (unless you're going to all veto that I come )

I am not surprised in the slightest that Pizzawheel and sharkus are the first ones to respond.

Mr Schnooks and I will be there! (Well done on picking the one Friday in May that we can actually do! Yay!)

Super excited for it, looking forward to seeing everyone!

Oi! enough of that! Are you trying to tarnish my perfect reputation?

It'll be great to catch up again

Did you have a hangover 'til March too? Must have been something in the club soda. The lime looked a bit dodgy, imho.

I'm still recovering now! I think another session is needed to rule out the dodgy lime thing, can't be two sessions in a row where it's dodgy

Count me in, I will try to be earlier this time so James and Sharkus aren't already p***ed by the time I get there. Just not sure how early that should be?

My car's name is Paddington. I have a Paddington bear in my car, and another one on my desk at work. A Paddington bear hard stare is quite comforting for me!

This is just too early for me to make it

Though I'll be arriving in Toronto on 22nd April, me and the other half have our wedding on May 9th (we already are legally married but this is our big celebration with each others friends and families), so I'm sure we will be busy.

I'll have to keep an eye out for the next time you have one
