Thursday, March 4th, 2010

The poll to pick the location for the March 13th photo walk ended in a tie between Queens Park / Wellesley area and Tommy Thompson Park / Leslie St spit, with the Old Mill area in third. I flipped a coin to break the tie, and so the winning location is Queens Park / Wellesley.

Meet: 10am on the SE corner of Queens Park & Charles (nearest TTC = Museum subway)
Route: roughly E on Charles then S on Jarvis (~2.3km)
Lunch: Churchmouse & Firkin (To Be Confirmed)
Afternoon: roughly W on Wellesley, around Queens Park, E on College then S on Yonge (~3.0km)
Post-walk bar: Elephant & Castle …or… Wolf & Firkin (To Be Confirmed)
