FOURTH OF JULY!!!! Patio Friday @ Cadillac Lounge

Hey kids, It's almost that time again - Fourth of July!!! Who remembers last year's bash?? Just a bunch of Americans waving sparklers, singing the Star Spangled Banner and spontaneously chanting U-S-A in a Toronto alley!!! It was a pretty magical night, and this year, let's top it!!! It's a Friday night Fourth of July, on the patio at the Cadillac Lounge. And just to make the party that much more special, I'm happy to report that Democrats Abroad Toronto will be joining us! In addition to some awesome people, Dems Abroad will also be bringing their super cool Barack and Michelle life-size cutouts for photos, and they can do voter registration too! (Yes, they can get you registered no matter your party - so if you haven't registered since moving to TO, get on it now!!!) I just posted a pic from Sherry and Doug, who are in the states hoarding patriotic decorations right now - this is going to be an amazing party!!!!


Cadillac Lounge has one of the best patios in the city, and they have happily reserved space for 50 celebrating Americans - but I'm just leaving RSVPs open ended. ;) Come early if you want to sit down, otherwise, just come out and party!!! The Cadillac has great drinks and pretty good food too! See you there!!

      Guess, you're the one from Montata, your husband from UK, he is the No. 1 tall guy in our team party, and he carries multi-nationalities something. Enjoyed meeting you guys as well. That really was a happy time! Appreciation given to Lindsay and other organizers for it.

    Wicked good! I had so much fun with you guys! I hope we didn't annoy the Canadians much singing the Star Spangled Banner and chanting, "USA! USA!" :)

    It's almost time - See you all soon!!! Just FYI, our Meetup dues are renewing next week, so I'll be passing the hat (or the beer stein, or whatever is handy) tonight. Toonies keep this group alive! Or whatever currency you have - I happily accept euros, bitcoin, basically anything except those blasted American pennies. See you there!!!

    Today's the day - HAPPY 4th of July everyone!!! And the list is at.... 133??!!! Yayyyy our biggest event yet!!! This will be fun, so many new people to meet! Here's how the night will roll out: 1. A few of us will be there for 6:45 to decorate. If you want to help decorate, arrive 6:45! Otherwise, please don't get there till 7, Cadillac does have a dinner crowd and they have no place to put us till 7 sharp.

    2. 7pm - It's on! Come for 7 if you want a seat - or wear comfy shoes, I think we will be standing room only as the night goes on... Yes, we will be there late! 3. Any volunteers to help me say hi to everyone?! You know I always lose my voice from talking so much :)

    4. I think we will do sparklers around 10pm... I've got sparklers for just over 100.... Guess I need to pick up a couple more!!! hehe

    July 4, 2014

  • Lindsay

    I just want to say how crazy EXCITED I am to see this guestlist growing everyday!!! I think I originally thought we'd have maybe 35-50 people, and today the list is at 110!!!???!!!!! Amazing!! This is going to be an awesome 4th!!!

    Hi everyone! I'm so glad I found this group. I haven't celebrated 4th of July since I got to Toronto. 4th of July is my Scottish husband's birthday, but he would love this- hopefully we can drop by for a bit!

      Piper's Pub on St. Clair has haggis - but maybe just on Robbie Burns night?

      1 · June 26, 2014

    • Andrea

      Thanks, Sherry! I didn't know there would be more than one place to find it lol. We usually go to The Caledonian at College and Ossington- great atmosphere in there.

    Hey, American Expats, the US plays Ghana in the World Cup at 6:00 PM Monday. The Office Pub at 117 John Street has been designated as the place for Americans to watch the game, and we should be there. I'm not sure I can reserve a table but I plan to be there at least an hour early. If someone will join me we might be able to grab a couple of tables. Anyone interested in watching the game there? Unlike some of our venues, this is right down town, just north of Adelaide Street West, a couple of blocks from the Osgood and St Andrew stations and maybe three blocks from Spadina and its streetcar. Hope to hear of some interest! http://www.theofficepub.ca

      Hmmm. Yankees tied for second, Sox mired in 4th. Case closed.

      June 13, 2014

    • Sherry H.

      Yankees suck.

    I'll be in the US prior to July 4th so let me know if I can pick up anything for the bash!

    There goes the neighborhood. And that's neighbor sans the u. And it's resume not reshume. I shall stop before I go overboard like a cargo of tea in a certain harbor (sans another u) in Boston!

    Added a couple of +1s to my RSVP to cover our Democrats Abroad guests :) Maybe if we are nice they'll join our group too? hehe

    I wish I could be there. But I'll be working at my yearly job. Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest. I'll have a dog or 2 for you.

    PPS. Pat and I had such a.good time last year that we are sad to miss this years party. And thanks to Lindsay for all the work you have done over the past couple of years since we joined up. We have always had a superlative time getting together with fellow Americans. Oh wait. I'm Canadian...so with Pat's fellow Americans. Whatever. I will be cheering for the USA on Monday....but not the New York Yankees.

    PS. HILLARY CLINTON AT THE INDIGO BOOKSTORE! Perhaps a chance to meet the first woman president! 2 PM at the Eaton Centre.

    June 11, 2014

  • Rob M.

    Hi David. We will try to be there by 5. We are meeting Hillary Clinton at the Indigo bookstore at 2PM. She may want to join us.

    Sadly, I leave for a conference in Havana on the 3rd. But the good news is I will receive France's highest academic award, the Palmes Académiques, from the French ambassador to Cuba. So I guess it is OK.
