Woody & Tim bash

Former colleagues of Darren "Woody" McGee and Tim Fryer, two newsroom vets booted by Sun Media in May, have been wondering if there was ever going to be a farewell bash.

Well, put on your party boots folks, Woody and Tim will be raising glasses and remembering the Sun years this Wednesday night at The Blue Moon Pub - 725 Queen Street East at Broadview, 416-463-8868 - anytime after 8 p.m.

Sources say Tim's new job at the Toronto Star (we knew this talented veteran editor wouldn't be idle for long) and Woody's new found life of leisure and soccer coaching delayed the organizing of a party.

The "why" of their axing in May after decades of dedication to the tabloid has yet to be explored. It made absolutely no sense to most current and former colleagues.

The Blue Moon Pub gathering of Sun Family members from recent years and distant past should provide some answers - along with a lot of good vibes from two highly respected newsmen.

So that's:

The Blue Moon Pub, Wednesday after 8 for Woody and Tim;

Betty's Restaurant, Thursday after 6 for Joe Duffy.

We will soon be counting the men and women who helped make the Toronto Sun a winner and are still employed there in a matter of seconds.
