Click & Drink Walk, September 2nd

Saturday, August 26th, 2017

Thanks to Brad for organising another walk. This will be our 200th scheduled walk!

This is the groups 200th scheduled walk and we are going to celebrate the occasion.

The map is of the west end of Toronto and shows all the microbreweries in the west end.

Morning Meet Up
We will meet up at 10:00 AM at Propeller Coffee at 50 Wade Ave.

We will look at the map and decide the route we will follow to visit as many of the breweries we can during the day. I have the times that they open so we can plan our route around these times.

There will be time between the breweries to allow for photos to be taken.

Lunch: Some breweries have food and we will have lunch at one of them.

After Walk Pub: We will see where we are on the map and decide on a final stop for the day.

Hair of the Dog, January 1st 2017

Tuesday, December 20th, 2016

As is tradition for TOPW, we will kick off the year with the Hair of the Dog walk on January 1st.

Meet: 11am on the beach/boardwalk by Sunnyside Pavillion [map]
There’s usually a huge crowd, so we normally break up into smaller groups in order to find spots from which to shoot.

Rumour has it that Georgette, Michael, Andrew Grieve and Mark Collins are taking part in the 12th annual Toronto Polar Bear Dip and raising money for Habitat for Humanity Greater Toronto Area.

After the dip (about 12:30pm) we’ll head to a bar. (Firkin on the Bay – confirmed)

There’s no walk planned after lunch; we usually sit around and chat for most of the afternoon.
