A Weekend in Miami, Florida

I’m going to try something different for my post today.  I just came back from vacation and I figured writing about my trip could be a great way to document the memories while also having a reference in case I’m looking to repeat the visit or someone needs recommendations.  So with that, here goes nothing! This time…

The St. Lawrence Market Summer Series

What do you get when you combine one of the finest food markets in Canada and the culinary creativity of the Food Dudes? You get the first edition of the Summer Series at the St. Lawrence Market.  I had been hearing about this event all over my social feeds and on a few newsletters I…

Lunch at The Pie Commission

I’ve mentioned before in previous posts that I work in what is probably the mecca of food options for lunch.  On College, around the corner from Kensington and a hop & skip to Dundas West.  I’ve also posted before about some of the delightful lunch excursions I’ve been on and decided that maybe I should…

Things To Do During Summer in Toronto: Movies Under the Stars

This past August long weekend I got a chance to really explore the city like a tourist.  I went to Centre lsland for the first time, rode a bike around the waterfront and FINALLY crossed off something from my Summer bucket list that I’ve been wanting to do forever.  Movies in the park!  And much…

Dinner at Amsterdam Brewhouse

It’s officially August which means that our Canadian Summer is slowly coming to an end.  My fingers are crossed on the warm weather carrying over in September since itI feel like I haven’t really had a chance to ENJOY the summer.  So in continuing my Patio Pursuits series I’ve been trying to suggest places with…

Drinks at The Spoke Club

This one will be a quick one in an effort to keep up with my Patio series.  You can see I’m serious about this one 🙂  I don’t head up to the Spoke Club very often but every now and then one of my friends with a membership takes me there for some bevvies.  Have…

Dinner at Sidecar Restaurant

Patio, wine, steak.  Pretty much sums up my recipe for the perfect summer.  Sidecar is one of my staples in the sense that I probably eat here at least once a month.  Not just out of convenience since its down the street from my office but they make a pretty kick ass steak frites.  They…

Dinner at The Captain’s Boil

“If it’s from the sea, it’s not for me” is a statement one of my favorite people at work uses quite often when we refer to any meal that includes seafood.  Although I don’t necessarily prescribe to that exact feeling, I also can’t say that I overly LOVE seafood.  I probably have fish 1-2 times…

Drinks at The Walton

Sigh, that inevitable smell of summer.  A mix of sunscreen, ice cream and sweat all rolled into one.  Which also means its time for patios to dust off their benches and tables and get ready for the swing of Torontonians looking to get day drunk while enjoying the outdoors. This week has been surprisingly above…
