Torontaru June & 1st Anniversary!

Torontaru's one year old already! It seems like just yesterday we were tweeting around like madmen trying to get people to come to our silly social, only to find dozens coming on the very first night... We're super thrilled with the swift growth it's seen and how everyone gets excited for the event every month. And to celebrate, we're bringing a little bit of the event's heritage back to Toronto! Thanks to the amazing people at Get Well, for one night only, a limited amount of izakaya-style lemon sour cocktails made with real Japanese shochu! will be made available for order! The perfect drink to beat the summer heat; you won't want to miss that.

Also, the first ever Stage Select Gaming Expo is coming up! There are many events happening on Saturday June 28th including panel talks, developer showcases, gaming rooms, live music, marketplace, artists alley and more. Check out the details and get tickets at

What is Torontaru?

Perhaps you've heard of 8-4's Otaru evenings in Tokyo? Every week, these guys round up the local and visiting game scene and have a chat over biirus. We felt like Toronto needed a similar event with the simple aspirations of providing a place for friendly, game-inclined ladies and gents to meet and have a pint, every month. No-fuss funtimes.

Torontaru's not just for regulars, either! If it's your first time and don't know where to start, don't hesitate to say hi to Renaud, MC or Kris -- we'd love to meet you.
