You thought you would get breathing room? No, this is only the beginning. 12 meetups, 12 months. PART TWO.

When: Saturday, January 21st, 2017 @ 7PM
Where: Victory Cafe (menu)

FYI: Line 1 is closed from St. George to Downsview, a heads up for those who take that way.

Pre-Meetup: Tim Hortons near Christie Station @ 6PM

Post-Meetup
Victory Cafe lightning round?

After that: I dunno? I know I'm going to bed

Congratulations, we got through 2016 and a full course of meetups! Now you may ask "what does one do at a TO-GAF meetup?" Well let me tell you, things you may regret or cherish. Or both. Join us for a drink (doesn't have to be alcoholic) and a bite of questionable nachos! And if you want to complain about the Switch, I welcome you with open arms.

TO-GAF Community!

If you wanna chat with fellow Toronto GAF members, visit our Toronto-Age community thread!

We've now got a Discord server where you can complain over voice chat! :D

Kuro's Meetup FAQ

But I'm shy and scared of meeting people I don't know
Best way to get over that? Go out and meet some people. Yes, we don't know you, and you don't know us. However, the people I've met have all been friendly and we haven't had disagreements in the past. What will you talk about? What do you want to talk about?

But it's too far and it's too cold warm!
Yes...! Another convert of Team Warm! One of us was driving back from NEW YORK the night of the last meet up and STILL made it. Another came all the way from OTTAWA! The temperatures for the last meet up, I'm guessing, were colder than this coming meet up AND there was a power outage last time. Nothing...stops this train.
^ No fucking weather excuses. It's the Fall now and this is basically one of the small parts of the year where the weather should be agreeable to everyone. Come on, people.

But I don't drink alcohol and bar food is disgusting
Come chat and/or bring your portable game system and play a few rounds of that popular video game with us. You can always come just to say hello, see the carnage, and be witness to the shenanigans.

But I'm poor...! :(
If you can make it, people usually treat others to at least one round. Of course, we aren't going to do this if Rob Ford or something like 50 crazies show up, but anyone who comes for a drink always gets one. You can always join Kraftwerk for some Kraft Water.

I'm busy doing [insert activity here]
If you're busy at home watching tv/movies or playing video games, they aren't going anywhere, and you can play games with us and discuss tv/movies with us. If you're busy doing someone, well...you can finish and then come visit after a shower of course.

I'm tired
Nothing brings out the energy like discussion and body slams.

Why would I want to go meet a bunch of Internet gaming nerds?
lol says the person posting on an Internet gaming forum.

I'm in! :) Maybe we can try the Good Game bar in the midtown area, Yonge and Eglinton?

http://goodgamebar.ca/

There's pizza, pubs, Indonesian tapas, and other stuff around the bar! I think we tried to book it a few months ago but there was a tournament or some event, hopefully it'll be free this time.

I wouldn't mind, I've wanted to go for a while. Raiders is another 'game-y' option.

No more money after Switch, but I guess I'll come and drink water.
It won't even be out yet OMG...

I'm good with this. And it's much closer to me.

Sucks about that place closing down! I wanted to check it out at some point too.

As always, I am a solid maybe for this. ;)

I can't stop laughing, what the heck. Anyone wanna recommend another place that's closing? We'll have a Victory Cafe going-away party to start off 2017!

Would Paupers be out of the question? I'm sure we could find a spot to take over, and it's pretty well priced, and not far from KFC/ Victory

Omg. We have to find another place? Victory was basically our usual. Though I think we branched out more last year.

I propose that we skip KFC this month and just do a full night at Victory. Shame i never really ordered their food there.

I can't remember who recommended the Macaroni & Cheese, but I ordered it once and I did indeed enjoy it.

I'm disappointed I have to miss the Victory Café farewell meetup, but if there's a late crowd I might be able to catch up with them at some point.

Yeah, I was going to see what day the family wanted to celebrate. Looks like it's the 28th for us so I'm out.

This meetup is probably going to have the lowest # of Chinese showing up.

I blame Isny for Victory closing.

He hasn't been to a TO meetup in years but I still blame Isny.

Edit: Huh, bus back home leaves at 11:59pm now instead of 11:30pm

Guess I get to stay 30 minutes longer now.

Also In.

Damn those generic Asians...!

It's awfully soon, but how would you all feel about this Saturday or Sunday instead?

I'll be there. My brother said he'll come. He is a GAF lurker.
A lurker? Well, he needs to answer the important questions.
Leafs? Raptors? Jays? ...Rock...?
Coors?
Warm or cold?
Burger place?
Video or...?
A new question has been added. What is your favourite Zelda game and why is it Link's Awakening?
