    So far so good, hopefully the new venue will allow more discussion about it. Not that the discussions I did have were too shabby either.

    I think it's too late to change the venue for this one. Let's give it a try and will talk about alternatives for the next one...

    Just so I understand... Will this venue be ok for next week or should I be looking for alternates?

    My understanding is that for this meetup we will be covering only chapter 1 of the Transhumanist Reader, right?!

      We can keep it to the first chapter, or expand, depending on how much others have read. Conversation tends to have a life of its own, but to provide some structure, lets say that we will start with the first chapter.

      Right, first chapter

    Again, ladies and gentlemen, I do not live in Toronto. I am trying to find locations that meet certain criteria, but I have to admit it is more difficult as I do not come downtown often and rely on what I find online, etc. Street parking can be hit and miss. What I am hoping to find is a location that will accept a reservation for 12-16 people (of course that will change as we grow), some food that is enjoyable and yet not priced out of everyone's budget, not too much ambient noise, (which I rely on reviews to try to determine), and with parking and public transit access. I chose this location because it seemed interesting and I thought it had most of our criteria. If there is a better place that you have in mind, please feel free to suggest it. I'm just the organizer. I want to create events that people want to attend.

    I was looking forward to my first meeting till I saw the address. Parking is a nightmare on Queens Quay. I called the pub and they said the 'deal' is at the Radisson across the street for $10 flat after 6. Sometimes paid parking is an unfortunate fact of life, however I go to quite a few meetups and there's typically free or metered (i.e. reasonable) parking available. Regrettably I'll pass on this one and wait till another event in a region of the city that not soooooooo built up. Then, hopefully, there will be some non paid lot options.

      This is a good point. In addition to tough parking I don't think the streetcar is running there either because they have this on-going reconstruction so not even buses coming from the west end...

      When I chose it it was partly because the ad said ample parking. Our first location had parking under Nathan Philips Square for $6 but the place was noisy. I'd be happy to look at other recommendations, if you know of a better place that isn't very expensive, with ample parking, and will take large reservations :)
