TorontoBabel: Sergio is hosting this week!
Tuesday, June 29, 2010 9:10 AM
Just a quick note about TorontoBabel this week. Sergio will be hosting since I'm still in Spain. He's hosted before and is very friendly and fun. He'll be able to help you meet other people there.
Also, lately I?ve gotten a few complaints about the noise level in the bar. Partly this stems from the volume of the music and partly it comes from the number of people speaking at the same time. I will not be limiting the number of people who can come to TorontoBabel. The idea is an open and free space where anyone and everyone can come. Typically if I notice that the music is too loud I ask the bar staff to turn it down, but after a while it usually goes back up. I have contacted the management of the Rivoli about this and I?m hopeful that we can come to an agreement about the volume on Wednesday nights since we are such a big group.
I?m not considering a change in location at this point in time, because I think we can likely get the volume levels down to a better level for us. But this all being said, we need to remember that not all of the noise comes from the music, but also from everyone speaking at once, which of course, is the entire purpose of TorontoBabel.
I hope you'll make it out this week and have a great time! it's a fun group!
See you in a few weeks,
