Day 32: The Yellow Griffin review

August 28, 2009

So here’s a place to game:  The Yellow Griffin pub, out on the west side, near Runnymede station.


(That picture’s from back in March 2008, but the place really hasn’t changed at all)

The location is very easy for transit, being basically right next to the subway.  If you’re coming by car, parking is a bit of a pain; I tend to go up one of the streets until I find a spot, and walk back a few blocks.

Here’s a map with a link:

Yellow Griffin

The Yellow Griffin hosts most of TAG’s monthly meetups, and it’s a really good venue for that.  We usually get the whole upstairs to ourselves, which is nice, although it means we don’t get much attention from the waitstaff.  That’s as much a property of the gaming as it is of the staff – we’re there to game, not get wasted, so we don’t order copious amounts of alcohol.

It’s a restaurant and bar, so you can get your food and drinks there while you game, but since it’s a restaurant and bar, there is an expectation that you buy your food and drinks there.

On the whole, the Yellow Griffin has been very accomodating of TAG and a good place to meet people and game.  The venue can hold about 30 people at max (just the upstairs, mind).

Most of all, it’s where I’ve made many friends.
