February 2014 Stammtisch
Please RVSP, because this helps us and the Madison Avenue Pub with the planning and when you sign up, it encourages others to join us, too!
We look forward to welcoming you to our regular Stammtisch event on the third Wednesday of each month at the Madison Avenue Pub. Join us for a beer, some food, and plenty of conversation in German. Although the event officially starts at 7 PM, you may arrive at any time during the evening.
Our meeting place is the VIP area, which is close to the front pool table on the second floor. Please ask for the “German Meetup” group if you cannot find us. If the weather permits, you can also sit out on the patio. We ask that you choose inside in the VIP room or outside on the patio when you arrive.
Location, directions and transport options
The pub is located just north of the University of Toronto campus in the Annex neighbourhood, conveniently close to public transit and parking.
Walking and public transit directions From the intersection of Bloor Street West and Spadina Road, also the location of the TTC Spadina subway station, walk one block east along the north side of Bloor Street West to Madison Avenue, then turn left (north) and walk 100 m / 300 ft past the small parkette to the Madison pub on the left (west) side.
Parking is available on-street on Madison Avenue, and in two small Toronto Parking Authority Green P parking lots: Carpark 238 (http://parking.greenp.com/parking-info/carpark-info/238_9-madison-ave.html) at 9 Madison Avenue just north of Bloor Street West, and Carpark 231 (http://parking.greenp.com/parking-info/carpark-info/231_19-spadina-road.html) at 19 Spadina Road, on the east side of Spadina Road just north of Spadina subway station. All three parking choices must be paid for using an automated machine. Caution: Madison Avenue is one-way south-bound for automobiles from Lowther Avenue to Bloor Street West. From Carpark 231, take this shortcut to the pub: pass through the gate on the east side of the lot, follow the alleyway east to Madison Avenue, then turn right (south) a few steps to the pub.
Cycling There is a Toronto Bixi bicycle (https://toronto.bixi.com/) location at the corner of Bloor Street West and Madison Avenue.
