so that's a train to Oshawa and then a bus to Peterborough. At first I thought there was train service all the way!

One cool train service I did notice is a weekend train to Niagara falls and St Catherines. It says "seasonal" though.

I can confirm State & Lake have good beer and good food.

Rock Bottom was decent pub food and their beer was tasty. Had an IPA and a stout.

Let's see how many people actually follow through with the Oct3rd date. It shouldn't be too hard to do. I guess I never stated my purpose for doing this. It's to protest the government monopoly on beer sales. It is NOT to try and get the LCBO to have better beer. So, for the comments about buying go...

I'm liking the idea of boycotting the LCBO and BS forever actually... but for now, Oct 3rd is fine for me. Unless someone else wants to do more with this. On Oct 3rd you can also make a private order for beer through an importer, that will count as buying beer from somewhere other than the LCBO.

I love the irony. Up tight Torontonians get upset about the billboard, proving its point. The only uptight people I ever meet in Toronto are the suburbinites who spend 2 or 3 hours a day commuting. As for garbage pile ups...bring it back on...I hardly noticed it. The only piles of garbage I saw wer...

I hate to spoil your well intentioned effort, but... The handful of beer lovers here will hardly put a dent in the business of the TBS or LCBO. I'm with you. But if there WERE a definite group set up doing this, a little media coverage of the group's efforts could actually be viable. Then it become...

You could even set up a group blog (or use freeourbeer, if Cass is amenable to it), and have a post each day about different options that are available outside of the LCBO/Beer Store. One post about going to Buffalo or Michigan, one about going to Quebec, several about visiting different breweries,...

Boycott the LCBO and BS, Saturday Oct 3rd

I'm making a futile gesture and not going to the LCBO or Beer Store on Saturday Oct 3rd. Also, I'm going to buy beer for home consumption from another source. Whether I go to Buffalo, Quebec, drive to Grand River Brewery or walk to the Granite, I'll decide on that day. So join me. Maybe next year I'...
