Evening of Ping Pong, Pool & Socializing

EVENING OF PING PONG, POOL AND SOCIALIZING

On Friday, July 26th at 7:00 PM we are booked upstairs at The Safari Bar & Grill for a night of Ping Pong, Pool and Socializing. We were here a couple of times earlier in the year and everyone had a great time. The Safari is located in the really nice neighbourhood of Avenue Road and Lawrence in Midtown. For those taking the TTC, it's only a 10 minute bus ride from (Yonge & Eglinton) Eglinton Station.

We have half the room booked upstairs, plus one Ping Pong Table and 2 Pool Tables, so we'll have plenty of space to socialize, have fun and unwind after a long work week. The three tables are booked from 7:30 P.M. - 10:00 P.M and this interactive activity will give some of our newer members a chance to break the ice a whole lot easier. Our members are a pretty friendly bunch, so that makes a big difference as well.

Let's be casual, make some new friends and by all means let's have some fun!! All you need to bring with you is a positive attitude and a smile. Oh yeah, be prepared to have a few laughs as well. :)

The Safari Bar & Grill is being quite accommodating, so please, let's do our very best to support them by having a drink or two, an appetizer, an entrée, or any combination of the 3.

There is a $10 meetup cost for this event. This includes the cost of the three tables for 2.5 hours. Cash only please.

EVERYONE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN BILL

SEPARATE CHEQUES HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

PARKING OPTIONS - Safari is located at the corner of Avenue Rd. and St. Germain Ave. 1-Free street parking on the north side of St. Germain Ave. after 6:00 PM. 2-Green P underground parking under the Rexall Centre right across from Safari on St. Germain Ave. 3-Free Parking one block north of Safari at No Frills. A lot of the Safari staff park there but there's no guarantee that you won't get a ticket. They seem to park there until 3AM without problems. 4-Metered Parking on Avenue Rd.

TRANSIT - From Eglinton Station (Yonge & Eglinton) take the #61 Avenue Rd. bus northbound. Get off at Fairlawn Avenue and walk one block north to Safari. The bus ride is only about 10 minutes long and it's just a little north of Lawrence Ave. For further TTC info call[masked]-INFO (4636) 

DIRECTIONS - Since we are all coming from different directions I strongly suggest going to www.mapquest.ca and clicking on "Get Directions." The destination address is 1749 Avenue Rd. 

We look forward to seeing you!!

      A not-too-serious tourney would be fun for sure. I found the website for Spingalactic on King St. too. It's a ping pong bar!

      What a cool idea and Susan Sarandon was involved as one of the originators.

    This is such a great place for a fun evening of socializing and playing some fun games with friendly people. We should make this our regular hangout once a month....sort of our group's "clubhouse". LOL! Looking forward to the next one.

    I'm so glad that everyone had a great time at Safari. I think that the combination of Ping Pong, Pool and Socializing is nearly perfect at this venue. Hopefully more of our members will get to experience it as well. Thanks to all the wonderful people that made it out!! This group would be nothing without such great members!!
