Bumping this since we’re only a week out. Not sure if anyone wants to “plan anything” in terms of a meet up or just wear a sign on our heads that says steepster but looking forward to it next weekend!

Shoot I entirely forgot. Anyone going from WNY? haha. I hate buses! How much are tickets at the event?

CraigA said

@ yappychappy $15.00 at the door.
Cheers!

Hey Sil,
It isn’t a trade show like the Canadian Coffee & Tea show out at the International Center (near Pearson Airport) where everybody had to wear an ID badge around their neck, but I would wear mine from last Sept 9/10 2012 with a made up inserted name ID tag.

Something like “Toronto Tea Festival”, ‘Steepster member: Craig Andrews’. I did post a link to my pic earlier in this thread, so it’d be pretty hard NOT to spot me lol! {;-D

Really looking forward to this 1st time ever TO Tea event & possibly/hopefully meeting some Steepster members too.

Cheers!
Sincerely,
CraigA.

CraigA said

@ Sil That’s what I say too.I asked my brother to go & he wouldn’t.. Then tried to talk him into it, & no way.. {:-/

Sil select said

my other half had to work. HAD to…even though i told him about it months ago lol

I didn’t see you there Yappychappy! or CraigA! sorry I missed you.

CraigA said

I was there @ 9:30am before it even opened & was there from 10:00am to about 3:15pm. Around 2:00pm I was walking past near the back of the lineup & I noticed/recognized Yappychappy (sort of) by his pic here.
I chatted with him to keep him company till we got to just before the front tables where you pay admission, but I had to leave to go in as a speaking session “Tea In the Himalayas” by kevin Gascoyne was about to start. {;-)

Indigobloom, You might of noticed, I was carrying around the orange Toronto Tea Festival bag along with two additional big black Mandarin restaurant delivery bags (to carry addittional stuff). :D
