Toronto Lunch at Dangerous Dan's. Dare ye?

Do you ever feel that your not getting enough calories these days? Hungry?

Thanks to the Where am I in Canada? thread, some of us are going to try and get together for lunch, in November, at Dangerous Dan's Diner on Queen E. at Broadview.

http://www.dangerousdansdiner.com/

How about you? Let's pick a weekend and find a time. No reservations necessary.



I can't do the first weekend of November, but am otherwise open.

I don't think I could finish coronary burger for lunch. Hell, I don't think I could finish it period.

It'll be better for me if you guys choose a date, and i'll say whether or not I can make it. Most of my weekends are quite busy because of work and other things anyway. But if I know the date, I can try to make it.

Make sure you get your tetnus shots...

I have eaten there before and it isn't too bad. Fresnelly, just squash that temptation to go to Jilly's afterwords. Your wife will kill you!

If it's on Saturday I can't, since I teach until 3p.m. (wouldn't get to DD's until about 4p.m.).

Sunday the 12th would be fab, though.

anybody consider a week day? Weekends are a huge scramble for me. that's when I put the most mileage on my car (those with kids and/or in-laws know what I mean).

But during the week, I can slip onto the transit, or parkway and be there lickity-split!

Thursdays and Fridays are usually quite good for me. No classes on either day

The fact that I can only get the deep fried mars bar if I get one of the specials is annoying. Not to mention the $4 price tag.

I might get the coronary burger just to say i've had one. Whether or not I finish it is another matter.

Friday can work. I'll see about taking the afternoon off, since there's no way I could ever go back to work after a meal there.

How about a Friday at around 1pm?

Holy Mother of God and Everything Good and Holy, I have seen the light!

This sounds like something I would eat on a dare. And I would eat this on a dare...

(Oh... for those who don't know me well enough yet... I've been known to eat entire pies for dessert. Seriously...)

Well, it certainly sounds good. But I can't say I'll try the "Quad C" this round--that is something I'll need to train for... literally.

I'm good anytime on weekends and after 5:00 on weekdays.

I think I may make a reconnaisance sortie this Friday... some of my work mates are intrigued with heart by-pass surgery, and want to try it out...


Edit: Friday evening:

Went to the diner for a burger. The food offerings are major sized, and the poutine was good. Decore is early model minivan.

I will be in town from Dec 23 until Dec 31 and might be able to squeeze in a few hours to have a beer if anyone is available.

Hmm, this caught some attention and then kind of died off.

May I suggest the 24th (friday)? Aberkok will be back by then.

Nov 24th at 12:30 anyone?

I had lunch at DD's last week and finally tried the Ribs. It was certainly a big portion, a little too fatty for my taste though. I think i'm gonna stay with my burgers there.

Anyone tried anything else on the menu?

i had the poutine. I gather that it is authentic, as the only other time i've had it was from Harvey's.

Nice thick gravey, fat fries and squeaky cheese curds.
