When: Saturday, April 15th, 2017 @ 7PM
Where:

The location is 720 Spadina Ave (Spadina/Bloor). If you're arriving afterwards, you can ask for Jamal's group. Here's the drink menu! And here's the food menu!

I'll update if things change however.



Second Cup @ Spadina/Bloor. 5:30PM or whenever people want to start hanging out.



Ajuker for that sweet KFC and soju! Time may be after 9PM or whenever we decide to bail or get kicked out of EoB.



Welcome to April! Spring should finally be here and we can get closer and closer to patio weather. With this comes those seasonal allergies and a few things to do. There are the cherry blossom trees that should bloom at High Park, as well as exciting SPORTS such as Leafs or the Jays coming on. In terms of video games, there's Persona? Not like anyone plays games so you might as well come down and enjoy!

Now then, sorry about dropping the ball on March but I've been squaring away some personal stuff so I flopped on putting in the hour to consider the thread. As repentance I will be bringing my Switch and Bomberman as well as 4 Joy-Con controllers so people can get smashed and chuck bombs.

Now don't get mad Vancouver GAF. The reason for the title is we're t̶a̶k̶i̶n̶g̶ having Smiley with a well timed meetup. So we'll have more Vancouver GAF attending this meetup than an actual Vancouver GAF meetup.



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



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.

Should probably explain the name :p

I'M COMING TO T-TOWN BITCHES

nobody says t-town, do they?

Why am I not already listed as attending?!?

Also, I've already been to a TGAF meetup and I'm leaving after the weekend, calling it "welcoming me to the city" is a bit weird :p

Guys....

Sorry to say but Home of Hot Taste is no more. Not sure if suicide chicken is still on the menu. I will miss the DIY riceballs. RIP

I may do some scouting this weekend or next. Is there a general sense of location or type of food from everyone? I guess we were just comfortable with terrible cider and subpar nachos at Victory.

Otherwise we could do Clinton's and the usual chicken place.

I am fine with Korean BBQ, just taken aback by lack of suicide chicken. I'll survive. I've never actually been inside Clinton's so I might be down for that.

I'm not sure Korean BBQ is conducive to a group our size to be honest. Maybe we can get precooked platters to come out though. That would work. I've also walked by that place before too. I don't recall it being that big as well. If I was loaded, I'd rent out Zakkushi for all youse. That'd be a great time.

I love Korean BBQ so I'm totally down

If we're worried about size, is there a Teppanyaki place where we can rent out a private room/big table?

Well size and cost to be honest. Otherwise, I'd be down for it.

And the answer is definitely. Arisu has those big rooms.

Arisu hours of operation would make it a stop #1 situation, and even then I dunno how many we'd end up having to cram in there lol

Although I would like for it to happen, I'd have to contact them to straight up ask the largest group they can accommodate before splitting them up.

I don't even think it has to be some BBQ or sushi place but I think the idea is we want something different if possible, right? So long as there's booze, bless
