(Fridays are bad because I work until 6 and then drive to TO from Ottawa.)

We should pick a location that's convenient for every one. I'm going to suggest 401/400, but I'm up for anything though.

Any chance of inviting them? Does anyone want to take that project on?
Seeing as TBTP of TwoP also live in Toronto, does anyone know if they ever come out to one of these things? Cause that'd be Sofa King cool.
It'll need to be near transit (I don't drive) and if it's that far north, I won't be able to make it before 7pm. Just to let you all know.

I guess the most central location for us commuters would be around Union Station, Front Street area. Just a suggestion.
Sounds good to me, I can park at Wilson Heights and catch the subway. Just say where and when. Years ago I lived right downtown, I now live just south of Barrie, and work in Concord, so I don't know that area at all anymore.

146 Front Street West,
Toronto, ON M5J 1G2
Is this the place?

I would also be happy to second the choice of Armadillo Texas Grill Cafe. The food is great and so are the drinks. It is SUPER easy to get to if you are using Union Station for either subway or train.
I'll peek back here once a week to see if anyone else from Toronto area is paying attention!

It looks like it just might be you and me k8sugergrover.
I'll just keep checking back. Considering December is office party time I'm wondering if we'll have problems getting a reservations - still a Sunday shouldn't be TOO bad.
I can't believe everyone from Toronto/Southern Ontario is going to the real TARcon in New York.
Edited Nov.22 - It looks like there isn't much interest in a Toronto party. Sorry to bail on your k8supergrover but I dont' think I'll make the trip to Toronto given the circumstances.

Also...in case I don't get to see you guys, what tourist sites could you recommend to me? I've been to the CN Tower, Exhibition Place, the Hockey Hall of Fame...and that's all I can remember from two years ago. From The Amazing Race, I know there's a shoe museum, but I don't think that's for me.

In addition Kensington Market is excellent (if you like coffee check out I Deal Coffee), the Toronto Islands are nice to walk around on, Rocky Horror is always fun, cruising on streetcars is interesting if you like checking out a lot of buildings, despite your dismissal :) the Bata Shoe Museum is surprisingly fun, the ROM is still under renovation but it's worth checking out, and so is the AGO if you like art.
Hmm. As much as I prefer EYE over NOW (although they're both so left-wing, they believe in evil conspiracies :), NOW does have the better daily event listings.
I don't know if you're looking for food/bar/etc… suggestions but I recently wrote out a list for a friend visiting the city, so I can copy/paste that in if you want.
 The Queen streetcar goes from the Beaches (or, The Beach, as it's now known) to the suburbs of Etobicoke through the middle of downtown. The best part is when the driver takes it up to 40 or 50 kph on the right-of-way in the portlands.
ETA: Cleaning up.

I'm still looking for people to meet up with at the Expo. So far, I've found two at the Heroes Meet Market. By the way, for any comic fans in the area who don't like the big cons, there's the Toronto Comic Arts Festival this Saturday and Sunday. Admission is free, and there are some stellar artists there, like Stuart Immonen, Evan Dorkin & Sarah Dyer (from my home borough), Cameron Stewart and Darywn Cooke, just to name a few.

PS: I did get the sketchbook back. The camcorder, I could take or leave, as it turned out.
