Toronto Underground Market: Sept 2012 (Anniversary Ed)
Just a quick review.... I really enjoyed last night. I had more fun than my previous outing, maybe it had to do with the weather (last year it was colder as it was in November when I went) but just the whole place seemed to be more "alive". It probably helped that they had a bunch of TUMs between the one and went to and the anniversary one this past weekend. As an added bonus, the "loot bag" had a bunch of coupons that more than cover the cost of the TUM tickets in savings. Was a nice little present for the ticketholders.
Logistically they can improve on a few things still. We got there at 5:30pm and lined up for the 6pm open. The started checking people in at 6pm (two "scanners" plus stamps) but took us until about 6:25 to actually get in. Can only imagine how long the end of the line took to get in! Maybe they can add another scanner at least.
Smart idea on their part to have the day event. Sure it will get its own "crowd". I hope they are different vendors though because I can't imagine them having stock for all day and night.
I went to one a while back (like November) and this will be the first one I have been to since then. I am going with a group of friends that haven't gone before. I will give it a chance at the higher ticket cost (works out to $18.93 per ticket when you consider the HST and service fees) but hoping my friends enjoy it!
