Called ahead again to Raw Sugar Cafe to make sure they remembered that we are coming tomorrow...
The lady said that most afternoons now are fairly quiet over there with everyone doing their Christmas shopping, so there's no problem with space for us.
See you all there at 3:30pm; I'll be sipping on a coffee already by then.

Those of you taking the bus to our meeting; you can get on the 2 Bayshore at Rideau Center (downstairs on Rideau Street) or anywhere along it's route on Wellington, then Bank, then Somerset. Get off at the stop just after you cross Bronson.
If you're coming from the other direction, it's the 2 Downtown, and you can catch it from Bayshore or anywhere along its route on Richmond, at Lincoln Fields station, again on Richmond, part of Scott and at Westboro Station, then along Wellington (in Westboro area) and Somerset.

For those of you who are driving to the meeting; there is a paid parking lot directly across the street from Raw Sugar. I don't remember 100%, but I think for the length of time we'll be there, you should be alright with putting in about $2.
Otherwise, I think that maybe the streets running north/south, like Cambridge, may have street parking. Sorry I can't tell you for sure, as I don't drive. I've always used the paid lot with my family when going for sushi on Somerset.

Hey everyone- I've changed the location of our meeting to Raw Sugar Cafe.
The meeting date and time are still the same though.
I called the Happy Goat to let the owner know we'd be coming next Saturday, but he said that until they open a new location, they aren't a coffee house, just a roastery.
They apparently only have tables to accommodate people waiting on their coffee to take away.
Sorry for the mix up. I'll be sure to check the location and firm it up before I announce meetings in future.
The new location seems promising, as I checked their menu and they have some delicious warm beverages, snacks and sweets that we could munch on while we meet.
I've called and asked if our group could meet there, and it's a yes, so there will be no more changes.
So-- see you at Raw Sugar on December 8th.

Good evening, Sophie- I'm very happy to hear that you're excited about the Sip and Meet...
As for transportation, if you are coming from Orleans, the transitway is very close to the Happy Goat. Just get off at Tunney's Pasture.
But like I said in the announcement, if you or anyone else may need to carpool, we can get something going, I'm sure. Just let us know.

Westoboro is o.k. with me. Right now I am only available on Wednesday, Friday evenings and Saturday afternoon. Maybe meet at Newport Restaurant corner of Richmond Road and Churchill. After the new year my schedule will clear up a bit. It is the Christmas Season with all kind of festive activities going on.

Hey Marc- thanks for the suggestion; I was actually wondering what nice place we could get together at, and this Happy Goat looks like it might fit the bill.
Looks like they are not open on Sunday, unless you call ahead of time. Maybe if Sunday ends up winning, and there's enough of a crowd to make it worthwhile for them, I'll ask if we could be served.
Weeknights they close at 6pm, so that's a no go.

If saturday afteroon wins may I recommend the Happy Goat coffee/tea place as a meet location? It is quite the little gem, located in the west end near Parkdale
