10 signs you grew up in Georgetown

If you grew up in Georgetown, the most common question you're probably asked is, "where's that?" Despite being only 30 minutes outside of the city, somehow the town gets lost amongst the popularity of the other places Toronto borders like Milton, Brampton, and Mississauga.

Here are 10 signs you grew up in Georgetown.

1. You consider Shoeless Joe's and Boston Pizza to be bars, not chain restaurants.

2. You had at least one of your birthday parties at the original McDonald's Play Place with the caboose.

3. You have an innate dislike toward people from Acton. You can't help it.

4. You've danced to a live band at The Gib.

5. You're either from the South, the Glen, or in-town. There's no in-between.

6. You've been to/fled the scene of a bush party or two.

7. You consider the Chicken Man both a local celebrity and a friend.

8. You've had a hangover breakfast at The Georgeview.

9. You've come to terms with the fact Nashville North is the only option for a 'big night out.'

10. You know to beep your horn going through the one-way bridge off of Mill Street.
