Now that the WS members from Toronto have had their first major offline, perhaps it is time for their group to get a name.

My suggestions:

~Mounted Winos
~Ontariophiles
~The Friendly Wine Drinkers With Socialized Medicine
~The Grape White North

I'm sure their are some other suggestions.

The first one sounds kinda kinky but, hey, if the shoe fits....



but, borrowing from some of VM's classic choices, I'd add:

Toron-toniphiles
Nanook of the North And His Roly-Poly Jug Band

Wow, does that sound stupid, or what? Big Grin Wink

Perhaps the most appropriate name would be the Ontario Whiners, since we all seem to enjoy dissing our provincial booze monopoly.

How about "The 51st state wine crew"? Big Grin

You can call us the 51st state crew if we can call you the 11th through 60th province crews. Razz

I thought they were still a territory? When did Canada become a State? Is Guam a State now too?

Big Grin Wink

Wine Hosers

I just found Bob and Doug on vinyl at a thrift store, so it's on my mind.

Maybe a picture of the crew would help in deciding the name.

If you were to base it on a photograph, we'd likely be the "Well Hung Swirlers". Big Grin Eek Big Grin

No offense intended here, but you could take your name from one of my favorite streets in the city and call yourselves:

The Dundasses

Just one more sip.

Board-O: continuing with the theme, they could be the Yonge at Heart or the Wine and Spadiners! Razz

tlily: that album is more valuable than it seems, to Rush fans at least, because of Geddy Lee's rendition of "Take Off to the Great White North". Mine is carefully stored along with my Masked Marauders album...

Why don't we just call them what they are-
" THE DRUNKEN CANUCKS!"
As a tribute to the many Frank Zappa fans on this board you guys could have your own theme song. "Watch out where the huskies go, and don't you eat that yellow snow!" Its not likely someone spilled their Y'Quem on a snowdrift. Drink more in '04!

"...soon they'll be bleary eyed under a keg of wine, Down where the drunkards roll." Richard Thompson.
