100% Sign Up Rule
When you sign up for an event it means that you are 100% sure that you can make it. RSVPING does not mean that you "LIKE" an event but you will not be showing up. This means that you have not signed up for any other Meetups the same day and that you can make it (you will be in the city). It also means that if you are working that same day you will not be held up at work or asked to stay later. If you also UNRSVP 24hrs before the event you will also earn a NO SHOW.
I once did a beer crawl some time ago to see what it would be like. The funny thing is that I don’t really drink and I don’t like the taste of beer. I find most beer taste the same and the only thing I know is that Canadian beer is better than American beer. So I thought to myself, if I was going to do a crawl let’s do something I like a dessert crawl….but I thought who would go for that? I knew I like sweet things, I like to go to different places to eat and why not make that I crawl but would anyone want to do it? As luck would have it, a member told me he once went on one and he had a great time! This got me thinking that I could do one too for sure!
You might be asking what is a dessert crawl? Hmmmmmm Well! It’s where you pick area in the city that has a lot of the same types of places that kind of serves the same kind of stuff……like dessert!!!! I have picked the Danforth because it has many places where you can try many different desserts, at many different price points and can fit most budgets. Just like beer, there are many different types but we will be eating dessert! Plus all that walking will burn all those calories…right!!!!!!
Down below will be a list of places that we will stop at and what the focus will be. They are guide line so we can try everything from Ice-cream, cake, cheesecake, baklava, Gelato, Frozen yogurt and much more. You can share with the group or go it alone but either way you will have a lot of fun!
After that we will end at a trashy dinner and have some trashy home cook food…if you can or just coffee……LOL
We start at Donlands and end at Broadview. Most of the places are from Donlands till Chester. After we will walk keep walking to Broadview where we can stop in at New York Cafe & Restaurant...It's run down a little but lost of fun.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
