      You are welcome. And "Ditto" to all and right back at ya.

    Great time! Had so much fun with everyone - need to do more overnight stuff like this! I learned a ton about the following:

    - the deliciousness of things fried in duck (you missed out Alberto..)
    - the magic that is sewing
    - the prevalence of Chinatown pancake balls
    - inappropriate photo ops (full body shot anyone?) :)
    - awesome mash up t-shirts
    - overprotective Batman boyfriends
    - that Aquariums apparently now contain fish!

    Thanks for coming out everybody - it was the company that made this one of our best events yet!

      Oh "Duck Fat" - it is amazing how the absence of a word changes the meaning. I thought something was stuffed into a duck and then fried in it. I was going to ask what orifice did it get fried in :P Yeah, Gina is correct. Blue Monk cooks with lots of ducks, and I been meaning to try those fries. Were they Poutine? (served with gravy and maybe cheese)? Though I do not know what duck orifice they cook in :P

    LOL I was having such bad anxiety that I could barely squeak at anyone, let alone meet anyone, but I literally ran into Leo and Andrew today at the furry ear and tail booth. Um... sorry about that. I bought grey ears and a tail and grey contacts and I was Nymeria the Dire Wolf from Game of Thrones.

    March 9, 2014

    • Leo

      I didn't even notice there was a wolf there! Sorry, tunnel-vision. You should have poked us, we don't bite. Next time, come find us.

    Amazing time! Went for drinks with Dushku and Bradshaw. Bummer I didn't see you guys.

    March 9, 2014

  • Leo

    How late are people staying on Sunday? I really want to do the Contiuum screening (sneak preview for Season 3) that is also a Q&A with the star.

    March 4, 2014

      I can do Chinatown. But can Chinatown do me?

    Leo and I are at strathcona hotel rooms 419 (me) and 214 (leo) we will be heading toward breakfast at 9am at the hotel.

    March 7, 2014

    • Steve G

      Hey Alberto - where did you guys park?

      March 7, 2014

    • Alberto V.

      A couple of blocks away. There are several parking garages near the hotel. I think we parked in the RBC plaza im park.

    For Saturday, how are people planning to meet up or find each other?

      Sounds good! We're flexible, so whatever time you want. Is 10 too late?

      March 6, 2014

    • Leo

      Are we exchanging our pesos into ruples before we cross the border?

      March 7, 2014

  • Kathryn E.

    Eliza Dusku is going to be there on Sat. You can only buy day passes at the box office not over the internet.
    Let's hope they don't sell out. I am thinking of going up there by bus. It is only $34 for a round trip on Greyhound and then you don't have to deal with parking and all the other joys that come with having a car in downtown Toronto. Anyone want to go this way? We can split a 5 minute cab ride to the Convention Center when we get there.

    March 2, 2014

    • Leo

      She'll sign autographs on Saturday, but it looks like her Q&A panel is on Sunday. You might like that better.

      March 4, 2014

  • Alberto V.

    On the spreadsheet I have made some suggestions: Chinatown, CN tower, Hockey all of Fame, History Museum, Late night Karaoke (after Comicon perhaps?), and aquarium. I wrote down the days I would like to do each but I am open to suggestions. Obviously Saturday would be the all day at Comicon.

    March 3, 2014

  • Alberto V.

    I wonder how long Meetup will stay on this time? ;-)

    March 3, 2014

  • Kathryn E.

    Whoops, got that wrong...Only same day tickets can be bought at the box office. You can buy the One day passes over the internet.

    March 2, 2014

  • Steve G

    So we're sure we can buy tickets at the door, right?

    March 2, 2014

  • Kathryn E.

    I want to go to this but I want to make sure I go the same day Eliza Dusku (Faith was so cool on Buffy) is there. Does anyone no the schedule yet. It said on the site we have to wait until March. So if I don't hear from anyone I will keep an eye out for it to be posted.

      She dates Rick Fox!!!

      I don't know who any of those people are. :-(

    Also, hotel options... 1) There's a 3-4 star hotel called the Strathcona that's 6 minutes walking distance from the convention center for $[masked] per night. I haven't seen anything close by that's cheaper.

    2) Hotwire.com has 4-star hotel rooms for $85 per night, but they may or may not be within walking distance (you don't know what you're getting exactly when you purchase it, just the general area - that's why it's cheap). To insure we're at the same hotel, we could have a meetup to purchase a block of rooms; I'd put it on my credit card and y'all could pay me back in cash.

    Please comment if you're interested in either!

  • Leo

    I think it's getting to the time where plans have to be sorted out. Carpool and hotels, mostly. What to do when we get there can be sorted out later. So reply below if you already made arrangements or if you have not. If not, those who want to stick together as a group, say so now. Otherwise it'll be assumed you have made your own arrangements and we'll see you there.

      Thanks, Leo! Additionally, there will definitely be at least one car going up on Friday, and one car going up on Saturday morning. Please specify if you need a ride and which day!

      February 22, 2014

    • A former member

      Both of those cars will be returning on Sunday.

      February 22, 2014

  • Leo

    I did get my car into the dealer for service recently, so I can offer up a carpool on Friday. That said, there is a place in Toronto I want to get to on Friday before 6, when they close. Just as an FYI.

    Hey, do we need a theme song for the weekend?

    Can't wait.....

    February 9, 2014

  • Leo

    We ought to decide sooner, rather that later, as staying one or more nights will require hotel reservations. That could get pricey if we wait until the last minute.

      I added a link to an editable spreadsheet in the event description above! Everybody please take a look and add your attendance info. Hopefully that will help coordinate rides, itineraries, etc.

      February 8, 2014

    • Leo

      Hmm, I'll have to keep an eye on their website for the schedule to be released. Thanks for the Spreadsheet, good idea!

    Okay we just need Cliff now to recreate the epic NF errrr (anime? - what was the theme??) convention

      Awesome! I'm thinking of driving up on Saturday morning and staying overnight.

    If we carpooled, maybe I could join. I can pitch in gas money no problem.
