    Hey there. The area you're in can get a bit dicy late at night, nothing you should be too worried about but keep your eyes open and don't do shortcuts through back streets. East of there it definately gets worse. Over near Sherbourne and Parliment is where the hood is and there's a lot of drug action. If you have any questions let me know.

    Cheers

    So any other recommendations ?
    Requirements are: pretty close to convention center, and not too pricey.

    Thank you very much for your help.
    I forgot to add in my requirements: no shared washrooms, and a parking.
    Any suggestion will help. Thx again.

    I planned a client meeting in Toronto Friday am so I can catch the show and fly home to Vancouver Friday night.

    I would be keen to hook up for a coffee at the show

    Some friends and I are coming from Albany/Saratoga NY area, meeting friends from Milwaukee, ariving around 6-7 pm Saturday, staying over (Holiday Inn Express I think) and hitting the show in the morning. Any suggestions for Saturday night activities besides the Duke of Argyle?

    Thanks in advance;

    Hey Guys, sorry I have been MIA, moved just under 2 months ago and I think I am slowly coming up for air! (too many renovations to list, well I could! and I am NOT a contractor!!!).

    Anyway, alas, once again, I seem to be missing the boat and cannot make it on Saturday, but I will be there on Sunday for most of the day. Actually, I will be in the KTM area chatting about the Adventure Bikes... so if anyone is around on Sunday come on over. I willb e the one with a KTM shirt on :lol3 :lol3 well, the one with the close cropped head and the Rally Connex patch on his KTM shirt.
