That's thirteen of us, plus whoever we're bringing. Any ideas of where we could go? Bar? Restaurant? It's less than three weeks, so now's a good time to plan if we all want to meet up. Just post if you're interested, and then we'll look up a few places close to the Air Canada Centre.

Count me in. Down One Lounge could be a nice spot to meet up before the show.

I think a bar is sorta out of the question for me, Me and my buddy are driving down probably, the problem is we're both under 19, and I look like I'm 14 (I'm actually 17), so even going into a bar is out I think.

Sounds good to me. I am bringing my son who's 16 so I am not sure about a bar either. I am open to suggestions tho. We will likely drive to Yorkdale and Subway from there....

Same here.
Underage, but only by a month by showtime.
I'll think about it, but I'm subway-ing from York Mills (closest to my work).

Alright, so a bar is out! Any suggestions from you folks from Toronto? I'm from Hamilton, and I don't know downtown Toronto all that well. But if we need to research restaurants and whatnot, then that's alright with me.

I'd like to have things planned before March 3rd, because I plan to avoid the forums after that date. I don't want any setlist surprises to be ruined. I'm sure many of you will agree!

Hi there-
if you're interested, i've been suggesting to the QOL folks a meet-up at the HORSESHOE TAVERN
(corner of Queen Street and Spadina)

www.horseshoetavern.com

I have a friend who lives in Toronto this year... she told me the Horseshoe was a really cool pub.

apparently there's not much going on right next to the Air Canada Center, so there's a little bit of a walk (approx. 2.5 kms) to go to Queen Street, where all the fun is...

so if you guys don't mind mixing up with the QOL crowd, i think we could ahve a real nice time. let me know...

sorry, i hadn't read the whole topic... are you sure you cannot get in a bar in Canada if you're underage? (the rules might be different from the US :/)

You have to be 19.

So, if we want to accomodate those who are under 19, a bar is out.

There are many restaurants (w/bar) within a 10 minute walk of the ACC that will accommodate all ages. Harbour Sports Grille would be the closest (about 5 min).

Actually the harbour sports grille looks pretty good. I'll see if maybe I can swing that, also depends if my friend wants to go. I'm gonna see him at school tomorrow so I'll see what he says.

Not really sure about this, but who knows.
I'll keep an eye out, though.

I'll try to make it, though I have to make sure my friend's up for it too, but I'm sure I can stop in for at least a little bit.

Awesome! I'm really looking forward to seeing you all!

So, unless there are more suggestions, can we all agree on the Harbour Sports Grille, at 10 Yonge St. ?

What would be a good time? 5pm, if the show starts at 8? I'm sure we all want to get into the ACC by about 7 or so.

Could a few more people post to confirm they'll be coming to the Harbour Sports Grille? I'd like to know it won't be two or three people there.

Also, could this be done in the next day or so? I won't be coming to the forum from tomorrow evening onward, to avoid reading any setlists posted.
