Thursday, October 10 PLUG MUG (tomorrow!)
« on: October 09, 2019, 01:48:35 pm »
I don't know how much interest there is in having our regular MUG tomorrow night (Thursday) so I'll make it simple. I'll be at Timmy's about 7:30 pm (Monaghan & Lansdowne) anyway. If someone would like to join me, that'd be great. If not, I'll drown my tears in my beer, er, soda pop.  ;D Hope to see some of you then! I'll stay until 9:30 pm unless somebody shows.

Update: Modified the time I'd stay to 9:30.

I don't think I will make the Mug, Jason.  At this time of year, I think having a MUG get together would be better for me, during the afternoon, when I can drive during the daylight hours.
Maybe we can meet at Chapters book store, sometime.

I understand. I can't do the afternoon as I'm busy volunteering on the NDP campaign. Not sure if Timmy's is open Thanksgiving. That day is free for me. Here's my online calendar availability - feel free to suggest some other afternoon that is better for you. You do need to use your Google Account to access it.

I'll still show up tonight in case anybody else makes it.

Another alternative (not this week) could be something like a cheap Chinese buffer at noon, say a Wednesday because of Mike's Thursday class. Very cheap, on Lansdowne near Starbucks.

I'm at Timmy's now, watching the French language debate.

Interesting idea. Create a new topic and suggest a date and see if you get a response.

The price is more than I thought. The full lunch buffet costs $8.95 for seniors and $9.95 or adults. But it is all you can eat.

What? Do you think I'm made of money?  ;) All you can eat is more of a bug than a feature, at least for me. Just to burn off 250 kCal, takes an hour on the step machine. But you bony guys could stand to gain a few pounds.
