Finnophile is back!
It’s been a good two years since we last made merry with a group of our fellow Finnophilers and now due to a tidal wave of demand WE’RE BACK! Join us for our relaunch and Pikkujoulu (Little Christmas) celebration at finnophile’s resident watering hole The Black Swan!

The important information:
what: Finnophile – Pikkujoulu “Re-Launch” Pubnight!
when: Thursday December 10th, 2009 7:30 pm – ?
where: The Black Swan 154 Danforth Avenue, Toronto M4K 1N1

Prepare for a night of Christmas cheer with snacks, door prizes and a little holiday goodness. The Black Swan is just steps from Broadview subway station, with “Green P” parking right out back. Potluck snacks & door prizes are welcome, just let us know what you are bringing!

    Why bother with this website if you continue to use Facebook??

    My question exactly. We need a vibrant “place” where all can and will go to connect. The Finnophile on Facebook looks good.

      Hi Finnophilers

      We have found that there are some folks who don’t use facebook and we don’t want to limit our attendance. The more the merrier!
