You're coming from the west no doubt. Kipling station is at 5247 Dundas St. W (mapquest link: here ). You can download the TTC Subway map here:

www.toronto.ca... )

Once you are on the subway, take it to Bathurst station. From there you can get the Bathurst street car (511) south to College. Sneaky Dees is right on the corner. It's not that far a walk from Bathurst station - about 10-15 minutes tops, but the 511 runs pretty regularily.


Thank you man. Yup, coming from Acton. You could say it's worth the drive to Sneaky Dee's.

No problem intrepid. Hope my directions were a help.

When are we gonna get a recap/pics from this event? I got stuck at a family deal all night and missed the fun.

Actually, it was a subdued affair starting with high tea and crumpets, after which we played a game of croquet on the lawns in front of Sneaky Dees.

I brought along my camera, but it sat listlessly on the back of my chair the entire evening as we were all spellbound by tales of black eyed children and the cobwebby landscapes of 'Political Canada'.

7 were present that evening...there were pictures taken...I know this because the flash bulbs reminded me of ancient times, when strobe lights lit the dance halls of 'long-ago'.

I did take some pictures the next day though...my darling and I went for a lengthy stroll down Queen Street West.

Maybe I'll post them here later.

(j/k) we all had a great time...it was a blast

I brought my camera, but never took a shot myself. Sneaky Dees was quiet initially, but by 8 or so it began to fill...mostly with 'bicycle couriers' and they were just getting into party mode around 10:30 when we left. It was a noisy place, but the beer flowed and the natchos were good, even after they got cold.

It was difficult to talk because of the loud music, so that was a bit of a downfall...but, oh, well. I think everyone had a good time.

Next day we went for a long walk down Queen Street West all the way to the Ontario College of Art on Dundas. I managed to take some good pictures then and here they are...

A boot store with a twist..

Springer would like this store...

we need to recruit more bicyle couriers here then dewd..! they sound like they can party.. (as long as the bring beers and women though...(might be difficult on a bike.. but.. when the need is great enough .. persistance will overcome))

note to self.. don't have a conversation in a loud place... gotcha!
glad you all had a good time though.


(cool pics btw.. especially the guy with his head split in two... my fav.)

Thanks, Klepto and WOS...the light was really good the morning after the get-together...and I needed some fresh air after all the wine and beer. (heh)

Queen Street West is an old decrepid part of Toronto which has been transformed into a vibrant, youthful colourful streetscape. I took about 50 shots and they are all worthwhile, but I had to bring it down to a reasonable number for the post.

LOL, that's one way to put it.

My most golden of ghouls lives in the Queen Street district. While it is youthful, vibrant, and artsy, the facilities, well, they suck. A few winters ago, her furnace went down, and she was without heat through most of december. She had to rely on space heaters...until she blew the circuit.

She has some impressive war stories from living in that den of hippies.

None taken, Young Bull.

I spent the night in an apartment near the corner of Dundas and Ossington. I know of which you speak.

I have to say sorry to all of you who went to the Toronto gathering. I was really looking forward to meeting some of the fine ATS members.
My mother has some medical problems and spent the weekend in Hospital, and I am her caregiver, anyway she is home and well now. So that's why I did not make it to TO.
To put some icing on my cake the video card on my system smoked so I was unable to get online long enough to make a post my screen was doing things they are not supposed too.
What are the odds of a video-card dieing and then the monitor going a day later
so I have a new one of them as well.

Again to all you who did go I apologize for not showing up

hey guys... earlier this year when this all went down... I really wanted to go but I could not as I had previous commitments.

If you ever want to have a Toronto gathering again, you're all more than welcome to come and hang out here at my shop to discuss all things controversial, conspiratorial and paranormal. I don't have coffee... but there's a mini fridge which can hold bevvies!

I think it's a great idea!



PEOPLE OF TORONTO RAISE YER HANDS! WHOOOOO HOOOOOO!

Hey, that's your shop? Neato! What kind of stuff do you have in there? Ya, ya, conspiracy stuff - but what stuff? What sort of memorabilia? magazines?

I'll have to stop by sometime, it sounds neat

the memorabilia (aka "stuff") is pretty sparse right now... just a bunch of masonic trinkets. As for magz: Nexus, Z, Biblical Archaeology Review, Fate, Documentary, In These Times, Skeptical Inquirer, Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, Mysteries, etc.... dvd rentals, books, etc...

very comfortable space... we actually had the Toronto Star shoot a commercial in our shop yesterday for some 'WHY?' campaign that they have coming up in mid-September. They dressed our shopfront up to look like an expensive furniture shop and outside our giant window they had placed a sleeping bag, tin cup with pennies, dirt, etc... to create this juxtaposition... very thought provoking...

so yeah, it would be nice of you to swing by... my name is Patrick!
