After much debate and consideration let's all meet at the Firkin on Yonge at 5:15pm, Saturday!
Kick-off is 6:00pm so that will give us enough time for introductions, drinks, etc. Everyone is welcome... Brits of all persuasions, Canadians, Colonials, Foreigners and, yes, even Italians!
As we mentioned earlier in the week, this isn't a formal meetup. Very, very informal. No fees, no hosting, no reservations. Just a bunch of English people meeting up so that we can collectively cry into our beer together. Or not, hopefully.
You will also see that some people have already made plans to watch the game at a different location (Rose in the Beaches, Matt at the Pipers, etc.) so please reach out to them directly if those locations suit you better.
So, how will we recognise each other at 'Firkin on Yonge'? I will be wearing a traditional English straw Cowboy hat (with a '1966' label) and I will try to stand in a conspicuous spot. Anyone else wearing a Cowboy hat will get a free drink.
Don't be shy! Just look for the hat and just to be sure it's me, you can always ask/shout the secret phrase "Do they think it's all over?" and I will reply "It is now!".
Don't hesitate to text me on[masked] or email [masked]
See y'all soon and c'mon England!!
