I'm in but can you clarify "before"... Like anytime between now and year end, basically?

Wednesday nights and some Tuesday and Thursday nights work best for me, but whatever.

Despite its name, there are no barrels of pickles. I fear you will be disappointed compared to the MLL offerings.

You guys are hilarious with the Pickle Barrel!

They do have a good fried wonton dish that is like Nachos, and their food overall is pretty good.

Question I am in, if...............

I am interested - if - we can discuss one (more?) topical issues.

In the past, we met with AC, toured YYZ, etc. My vote is a debate about airport privatization?

FYI, I attended the last AGM for the GTAA. It was a joke. Howard wanted to end the meeting as soon as it started - as soon as he realized the reason the room was full was because people wanted to discuss the GTAA's sub-contracting procedures and the recent death of an AC tarmac ee.

I can no longer support the status quo GTAA based on their outrageous behaviour at and since the AGM. The world is full of well run airport authorities.........why is Canada's flagship airport so badly managed? We pay the highest taxes in the world, and we get the worst run airports?

If we can discuss this (or other relevant issues?) I am in.

Wut.

Look, it's just another light-hearted DO discussing anything and everything over grub and drinks. Nothing is tabled for discussion, but you are more than welcome to discuss anything you want to, and anyone is also free to ignore you, or yawn and fall asleep.

You know your employer is trying to tell you something when they put your office in the attic of a Pickle Barrel.
