Wireless Toronto Gets You in for Free

I remember in mid-2006 when Wireless Toronto only had a smattering of locations to claim as Wifi hot spots, most of them part of the Teriyaki Experience chain of restaurants. Things have indeed changed for the better as the group now has 27 hot spots scattered throughout the city, including the massive Dufferin Grove Park wireless zone. To celebrate their success and the launch of 2 new hot spots and a new monthly "hack" night, Wireless Toronto is holding a social this Tuesday, January 23rd. Like their wifi policies, there's no cover charge and free food. Hit the jump for details.

This Tuesday Wireless Toronto surfs into Lot 16 to host a meet and greet with some of Canada's biggest Wifi hot spot movers and shakers, including my hometown's group, Ile Sans Fil, for an evening of fun and likely some Bittorrent downloading, I'd wager.

-Talk/Drinks/Beats at Lot 16 (1136 Queen St West)
-Tuesday Jan 23, 2007 7-11PM
-No cover, cash bar, free nibbles

Schedule
7:00 PM - Welcome & Social
8:00 PM - Talks & Discussion
9:30 PM - DJ & Drinks

For more information on Wireless Toronto, check out their blog. There's also a kick-ass map showing all their wifi hot spots, including whether or not they're currently down for maintenance, which is pretty slick.
