There is so much happening these days in Toronto Towne.
This weekend, Rich, Elana, me and Kiff decided to indulge in some summerlicious (prix fixe promotion for otherwise too-pricey restaurants) at the Corner House. It was a bit of a silver-haired crowd, but the food was tasty and the service really attentive.
Sunday we went to the outdoor art exhibition at nathan phillips square and checked out a dizzying array of local artists showcasing their wares. This is a big event for local artists - some of whom make more than half their annual income during the outdoor art weekend.
That evening, Sarah, Kiff and I had plans to make a barbecue for the three of us. We went to Kensington to buy some fish (my first time trying Marlin) and other groceries. On the way home we unwisely took College. I say unwisely, because Italy won the soccer cup, and the streets were a crush of delirious fans. I get a bit nervous in big crowds.
A couple of guys came up to me after I dismounted from my bike around Clinton and said: "Smile! Italia won! What's the matter? You French?"
"No, I am just trying to get home." I did not headbutt anyone.
"Look, she has a baguette in her bag!" said someone, pityingly.
We ran into Karlen and Tao and invited them to join us. Happily, the sounds of a street party are so much better than the aggressive victory circuits of cars. We were relieved that the street was closed to cars. Somehow, we missed the deerheads!
