TOPW 150th Walk, August 1st

Saturday, July 11th, 2015

It’s Toronto Photo Walks’ 150th Walk! Lizzie has designed us some T-shirts and Andrew has offered to host a potluck garden party.

First, the T-shirt info:

There are three styles – you can find pictures of them and the details of how to order them are Lizzie’s Flickr feed here.

To celebrate 150 walks we will walk in the morning and then have a potluck garden party in the afternoon in Andrew’s backyard.

Date: Saturday August 1st

Meet: 10:00am at Andrew’s House
, 40 Harriet St. – which is the first street north of Leslie & Gerrard

Directions: TTC = 506 Streetcar from College or Main Stations / 72 Bus from Pape Station – get off at Gerrard and walk 1 block east
Drivers – it’s a long weekend, lots of my neighbours are off to the cottage so there should be parking on the street. If you get there and it is very full – ask me about special spots I have.



Morning: South on Hastings Ave; east on Gerrard; south on Alton Ave; east through Greenwood Park; north on Greenwood; east on Gerrard; north on Coxwell; west on Fairford; north on Woodfield; through Rail Garden and Monarch Park; west on Felstead; south on Greenwood; west on Wagstaff (via Left Field Brewery); west on Ivy Ave; south on Leslie; east on Harriet, ending back at Andrew’s House.

Lunch: (12:30pm) A potluck lunch at Andrew’s (40 Harriet St., 1 block north of Leslie & Gerard) [map]
We will start at my house so that you can leave food & drink in the fridge while we walk.

No BBQ
Ken has kindly offered us a keg! 🙂
Near the end of the morning walk we will be passing by Left Field Brewery, which is open on Saturday.

My backyard has seating for 40, a large part is covered with a tarp and I’m still deciding on which parachute I will put up – the pink or the white.

Hashtag: “TOPW:150W”

If you are lost or want to join us at another time during our walk, call/text so we can let you know where we are.

We know some TOPW regulars aren’t able to join us, so we’re also doing International Walks!

If you’re not able to join us in person, then do a remote TOPW walk wherever you are! Just remember to take photos of the walking (and drinking), then tag & post them with everyone else’s 150th celebration shots.
