Road Closed! Yonge Street, looking north from Shuter Street.

Road Closed for Open Streets!  Yonge Street, looking north from Shuter Street.


Well, it was raining on the Saturday night that had just past, and I was concerned that on Sunday it would be a bit too wet to bike out to Bloor Street and Yonge Street where Open Streets Toronto was being held.  To my delight, the moisture dried up and it turned out to be a beautiful day!  It was a great change from the heat waves that ravaged the city for the past few weeks.



Alvin’s Food Follies – A “Snappy” First Visit to Jackson’s Burger

Friday afternoon, on my way between work and an event (at which only hors d’oeuvres were being served) my girlfriend thankfully asked me to grab myself a bite. I only had 20 minutes.  Jackson’s Burger was on the way, found along Yonge Street, south of Gerrard Street. The guys are open late too.
