Monthly Pub Night

It’s the last Tuesday of the month coming up and that’s when we gather to share memories and aspirations over a glass or two. We will meet upstairs at the Oxley Pub in Yorkville from 6pm, Tuesday 28 August, till the conversation runs dry. If you haven’t been to the Oxley before, it’s just north-west of the Bay-Bloor intersection and yards from the Bay Subway Station.
