UPDATED!

We are planning a holiday meet-up on Sunday, December 17th to coincide with the new TYSSE/Spadina Subway extension opening. It will be a combined meet-n-ride along the new line!

The UT team will aim to be at each station starting at noon and ending at the Fox and Fiddle near Finch West Station. Here's the plan:

Noon: Downsview Park — just inside the fare paid area at the main entrance
12:30 Finch West — just inside the fare paid area at the main entrance
1:00 York University — just inside the fare paid area at the main entrance
1: 30 Pioneer Village — just inside the fare paid area at the south entrance
2:00 Highway 407 — just inside the fare paid area at the main entrance
2:30 VMC — just inside the fare paid area at the main entrance

From 3 PM until about 5 PM we'll be at the Fox and Fiddle at 1285 Finch just east of Keele (1 block from Finch West station). There will be a little swaggy goodness for some lucky attendees.

Join us anytime along the way to share some holiday cheer with us and other UT members!

UPDATED AGAIN: Rides on the TTC on Sunday are free, courtesy of your tax dollars! The Ontario Government is picking up the tab for the day.

Would love to meet many of the characters on UT! I hope everyone remains cordial.

EDIT: Mistakenly thought this was a weekday, rather than Sunday. Impulsive me...

We already found one!
Dub Linn Gate immediately comes to mind. I suppose it's within walking distance to VMC Station, just not pedestrian friendly (but that will change, right?) Not quite familiar with the areas near the other stations for pubs.

We are planning on the Fox and Fiddle around the corner from Finch West station at 3 PM on the 17th, after you've all had time to explore the stations (but before dinner if you need to head out).
