Lunch at "The Real Jerk" (A No Meetup Fee Event)

Hey Everyone, On Saturday, February 15th at 1:00 PM come and join us for something a little different, a great West Indian Lunch at The Real Jerk!! We have a reservation for as many 40 of us, so there's lots of room. They actually open at 1:00 PM, so don't come too early. Make sure you arrive slightly after 1:00 PM to avoid waiting out in the cold. 

The Real Jerk was a fixture for years at the corner of Broadview and Queen until the building was sold and they were forced to move out. They were in the news for awhile because of this. It took them a good couple of years to find a new location that was just right and now they've relocated at Carlaw and Gerrard. I used to eat at The Real Jerk a few years back and their food was always fantastic.

This will be a terrific place to go right smack in the middle of Winter. That big sun will surely warm us up and make us feel as if we're in the Caribbean for a couple of hours at least. Let's remember to bring our sunny personalities as well.

Be sure to check out their website to learn more... http://www.therealjerk.com

There is no meetup fee for this event.

We will be able to have separate cheques.

Parking - There are some spots in their strip mall. The Real Jerk also suggested parking at the No Frills just slightly north and on the east side on Carlaw.

Transit - Take the Bloor-Danforth subway line to Pape Station and then board the 72 bus southbound to Gerrard. Walk one block west to Carlaw. For more TTC info call[masked]-4636.


WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU!!!

    Alex I was not sure how I was going to feel and you made it all right. Thanks for another fun afternoon in Toronto. I enjoyed the meal and the company! Will check out the Japanese Cultural Center website for restaurant information. Enjoy the restoftheweek!

      I'm happy that you enjoyed it, Ann. A combination of great food, atmosphere and really nice members made it just right. I'm actually trying to put together a meetup at a great little authentic Japanese restaurant myself. Hoping to do this next month.

    Can't I rate it 10 stars??? Had a GREAT time. Food, service and music awesome as always. And the company and Alex's welcoming inclusive nature made this a lot of fun.

      Thank You, Brenda!! I'm very happy that you and your friend enjoyed it. Thanks also for your nice comments. They're very much appreciated!

    • Brenda M.

      Any time, Alex. I've only gone to a couple of different meetups apart from this one so far, but from my experience, you go the extra mile to make sure everyone feels included, welcome and comfortable. You don't just provide stuff to do. You create an experience. That's one of your gifts. (:

    A great place, say Hi to Ed and Lil for me. Unfortunatly I will be on the ski hill with the 6 to 12 year old group. Sorry to miss this one. Please raise a glass of Red Stripe to me if you think of it.

      Will do, Fred!!

      February 8, 2014

    • fred

      I sent you an email about the "family style" way of ordering. Hope you got it..just an idea that may save a few dollars and offer more choice to the lucky folks that can go.
