    We shall see, my friend! I might not be able to go to either because my job requires intensive training in August. I'm really hoping for this one or Darien Lake in Buffalo. It would be great to see everyone again! Or at least those of us who remain here!

    We've been doing this for 11 years. Plenty of 'real' Linkers have met up before every Toronto show going back to 2004. The more the merrier. Hope to see you before the show in August! Add your name to the roll call.

    Crossing my fingers good buddy. And I think Jack Astor's was ridiculously crowded in 07 and 12. Any thoughts? Skydome in 04 was good but it was a little out of the way wasn't it?

    Any bars near ACC/Skydome are out this time around because the concert is going to be at the Molson Amphitheatre. Its basically at the CNE grounds.

    Right right. Well that narrows it down then. I've never been to the Amphitheatre. And what if other fake linkers want to come?

    I think you are in trouble with this one Mitch. There is literally nothing down there, and by nothing I mean NOTHING! It used to be an amazing place to go before concerts when Ontario Place wasn't closed for revitalization. There were bars with huge patios overlooking the marina and lake. We sat there for 5 hours before the Balance show. Now the only hope for a pre-show gathering is really to go somewhere on Front and then take the GO Train back to Exhibition. But I can't see this particular group of drunks making it onto a train or remembering to get off at the first stop.
    Signature not currently available. You aren't missing much.

    We might just have to meet up by the beer stands , before the stairs that lead up to the lawn seats ?
    There's plenty of room to have a cold one , share a few laughs , and have a smoke etc.

    Sort of depends on what time everyone is heading down to the venue . I plan on being there a few hours early with my gf , to soak in the atmosphere and grab a bite to eat .

    Yeah I know. Not much at all down there. Too bad the CNE wasn't on at the time. At least there'd be some places to drink within a stones throw of Molson Amp. The GO Train isn't a bad idea but again.....Particular group of drunks and the whole first stop thing. Plus if the train happens to get cancelled you're sol until the next train in an hr....

    Count me in boys! It will be good to see all you knuckleheads again!

    As for a place to go, I think Jet is right, there is NOTHING close by. I say we meet in the parking lot early, crank the tunes, crack some beers and tailgate. OLD SCHOOL STYLE! We can coordinate the food if everybody brings something. Lets just hope for a nice day weather wise. Looking forward to it!

    PS. Aug. 7th is also my wife's birthday. She said she doesn't want to go but I'm trying to convince her. If not, then I will still go regardless. We can always celebrate on Saturday. Her birthday comes once a year, not VH!
