Do you go to Waterloo then, or Laurier?
Ibn: Yeah, for real. Last year was the first time I went to RIS and it was great. I loved it. Speakers were amazing and it really revived my Islamic spirit!

what are good but not overpriced hotels near the convention? how far are they?
besides the convention fee/hotel, what other expenses are there for an out of towner?
hows the food/bazaar like?
do I need to bring snow boots?
is the convention center usually cold?
what else in Toronto is a must see?
how can I get the full Toronto experience? (within a few days). I want to go to that food place with the auto riksha outside.

Over 12,000 first-class rooms within walking distance, and more if you're driving, of course.
Check the PDF file available here: http://www.mtccc.com...erest_20062.pdf
Parking. Although its not much. On the weekends they have pretty low all-day rates. Just make sure you guys come early in the morning on each day of the convention, so you can park in their indoor + underground parking lot which connects directly to the Convention Centre, otherwise you'll have to park at one of the public parking lots located about a 5 min. walk away.
Shopping. if you'll be doing any - either at the RIS bazaar or the city shopping malls.
A lot of us just go to the Richtree restaurant because they have everything there ... Italian, European, Mediterranean, Oriental, North American, seafood, fruits, all sorts of cheesecakes,... basically, EVERYTHING.

Yeah, that is a lot. I'd totally go with you to all those places.
I go to U of T and I don't even have a school sweatshirt.
You gotta go up the CN tower too. And see Gerrard Street.
And drive up and down Yonge Street too.
All the touristy things.

someones obviously planned this out a fair bit.....

nah that was all from looking at the places on the pdf Ibn posted. But I've heard about the coffee (that it's the best tasting coffee, I must taste it to believe it. Is it possible that Tim Hortons could be better than Dunkin Donuts coffee? I know Canada's magical but good coffee is hard to find) and riksha restaurant from people who went there.
