PPP Party!

That stands for the Pension Plan Puppets Party Planning Plenary. Yeah, you come up with a better title.

UPDATE: We are confirmed for 6:00PM. Reminder that we are at the Bier Markt location at the bar row on The Esplanade. It's between Church and Scott. Here is a map.

Given that our big meet-up is less than a week away TODAY I thought we might want to brainstorm any ideas we had to make the evening more fun. For those who like to imbibe, that might be in the form of a drinking game (note: PPP encourages you to drink responsibly). The Bier Markt has over 150 beers from 30 countries, so perhaps we can try something from each of the countries represented on the Leafs?

Alternatively, do we want to each bring something that will identify each of us to the rest of the group, since most of us have never seen each other in person? Do we want to pick a common theme, like an inside joke?

Please feel free to contribute any ideas or ask any questions below. Also, if we could use this thread as a final confirmation point for those who plan to attend and especially if you intend to be there by 6:00 PM so I can confirm the reservation with the Bier Markt, that would be great. I really look forward to seeing all of you this Friday! is a fan community that allows members to post their own thoughts and opinions on the Toronto Maple Leafs and hockey in general.
