About the meetup:
Two back-to-back movies under the stars in Dundas Square! What could be more "summertime in Toronto"? We'll meet up in the seating section at 6 p.m., then go off to pick up food in small groups, then back to our seats to mingle and munch. We'll eat and socialize in the seats, then watch two back-to-back movies! Be sure to bring a sweater to help hold seats. We followed this format at an outdoor screening at Harbourfront recently and it was lots of fun. What food is nearby? Well, there's Chipotle, Nasrin's favourite. What else can you guys suggest for quick takeout? Feel free to comment below. Cost: free! Just bring some money for takeout dinner if you'd like.

*Seating is provided; first-come,first-serve*
We will likely not be going out afterward, as we'll socialize between 6 - 7, and then the movies will run until 10 p.m. Unless you're really gung ho - then you can try to talk us all into it!
The following week, we'll be heading to a pub so that I can give you all a hug goodbye as I say farewell to Toronto for a while. See you soon!
