    Folks -
    Coming to Trawna Oct 19 for about a week. Be nice to meet any Toronto-area Ape Huggers and test out my theory that good beer and silver gelatin complement each other.

    Hope to see a few people and put some faces to the names!

    Week of the 19th works for me! Where in Toronto will you be?

    And yes, beer is an essential chemical in the analog photography process :smile:

    It's about time for the Toronto/GTA rabble to meet again.

    I think the men's room at Beerbistro has already been extensively photographed, along with the alley behind it afterhours.

    :laugh::laugh:

    Not sure where I'm staying exactly...downtown, for sure. Thinking of hitting the streets for some shooting and building up a thirst that way.

    No shortage of watering holes and good affordable(and not so affordable)eats downtown. Some decent places down around Toronto Image Works.

    For all this, check the Toronto chowhound.com board.

    The annual Toronto Zombie Walk is Oct. 22. Not to all tastes but more of an added attraction if we do something that weekend.

    What interests Colin? Weather can wreck things anytime but the 22-23 could work for another GTA/TO APUG meet-up. If he wants street shooting, the strip along Roncesvalles near High Park is a break from Queen/King/Spadina. Some OK restos and bars along there.

    I'm OK with that...I'll leave it open to you but that sounds good. So far it seems from maybe the Thursday (20th?) on I'll have a bit more time free. I don't leave til the following Thursday so it's wide open -- the whole point was that I don't have a hassle or sked to keep to.

    I would love to, but depends on timing (I have two shoots with models scheduled). If it is Saturday after about 3:30 or so (and in Toronto) I'm in!

    Yes downtown as I barely know where anything is!
    Kensington Market sound alright? Was thinking maybe meet at College & Bathurst (by Sneaky Dee's) & head from there. Sound OK?

    Back home to reality now (ie. bills, work, etc). Had a great day with vilk -- any good photography expedition starts out with a few pints.

    Hope to meet more next time out -- look for outtakes to be put up in a gallery here soon.

    thanks all
    Colin
