When:  Thursday, March 31st, 8:00 PM

Where: The Bedford Academy, 36 Prince Arthur Avenue

Hi everyone,

This will be our third Toronto meetup.  The last two were resounding successes, so we plan on continuing them on a biweekly basis. 

Returning people should note the location change; the Duke of York has live music every Thursday at 9 PM from now until May, so that venue is no longer optimal.  The Bedford Academy is just across the street and is fairly similar, so it will serve well as a substitute. 

The reservation will be under the name lesswrong, and we will have a sign.  

Newcomers are extremely welcome.  You don't have to have read all the sequences and be a regular poster to attend these meetings; everyone is encouraged to come out.  The liveliest discussions are usually those between people with different ideas and background reading.  

Feel free to come with discussion topics in mind, that generally makes the first half hour run more smoothly, as that way we don't need to sit there waiting for someone to come up with something to talk about.

See you there.

People taking the TTC: get off at the St. George subway station, walk out the Bedford exit, and head east on Prince Arthur Avenue. The pub is located on the north side. See you there!

Indeed. Last London meet we had a journalist from Fast Company present, and he participated fully in discussion. It was very interesting having a smart person along who didn't share in the group memes.
