So, err. I want to see this person off online dating app

Is it an okay idea to do coffee date for an hour or so or is that super boring and too formal? She's around Downsview, Im around Mississauga. I guess Id be driving down as bussing down seems lame of me... but I'm not sure where to go... Any recommendations for a first date? I guess this is technically outside of Toronto, but I really dont even know my own area too well.

A friend of mine is going to some thing where a bunch of dogs for adoption are being displayed. That sounds super cute and unique, but that's supposed to be today and Im to see this person tomorrow.

Im ashamed that I know so little about the GTA, but I cant say I get out much

If you're thinking of picking her up to come downtown, then the OP has a list of places you can go.

Yup, we got tons. We didn't advertise it so people haven't really caught wind of its return yet.

Or they're just too busy buying Founders KBS. People are walking out with cases. One dude walked out with four. That's like $700. Some dude dropped $700 on Founders KBS. Quite a few of these people are driving up from the United States, too. The store was fucking wild today. (I already tried one. Yup, it's really fucking good!)

We had a Sunday meet up last time Smiley was here. And no, I don't know why I remember that.

But yeah, looks like the 15th would work best.

This time, the tag line can actually be "More Vancouver-GAFers than Vancouver-GAF"

Just went out with my co-workers for dinner at Harbour 60 and have a good time there. Got myself a filet mignon and baked alaska for dessert. Not the type of restaurant I go out to eat but like to treat myself to a fancy place to eat once a while.

Yeah sorry about no March meetup. I was trying to see if I'd be free these weekends but it's not the case. Easter weekend sounds fine but I might be forgetting something going down.

That's why I always keep a set of keys or screwdrivers around me. It's become a habit that I will first touch the metal surface with those to discharge myself. It's mostly the arcing that hurts, so by putting a metal object as a buffer, I move the spark somewhere else.

apparently it's not REALLY an escape room

it sounds more like a class project where you're partnered with the people sitting at your table. you only have 1 hour to finish, then at the end they reveal the solutions.

I hear the puzzles are pretty good but the thing overall is a bit underwhelming

I don't have the ability to play the JP version unfortunately. Double Cross hasn't even been announced for us NA peasants yet.

I almost expect it to be upgraded to the Switch along with a 3DS release like MH3U. Probably an announcement at E3.
