Top 5 Places To Eat In St. Clair West, Toronto

Monday, October 18, 2010

By Natalie Taylor Toronto is synonymous for food-centric neighborhoods such as Greektown, Chinatown, and lately, Ossington Avenue. But St. Clair West neighborhoods, Wychwood Heights and Hillcrest Village, spanning from Bathurst to Winona Drive, are undergoing a foodie renaissance. The St. Clair strip (near Dufferin Avenue) was predominantly known as Toronto’s other Little Italy, Corso Italia, […]

A Perfect Bus Ride From Toronto To New York City

Friday, July 2, 2010

Not even the coffee shops were open as the streetcar stopped outside of Toronto’s Greyhound Bus Terminal on Bay Street. It was 6 a.m. and the streets were deserted — not just from the blockades for the G20, but mostly because Torontonians are not usually drifting the streets that early in the morning. Rubbing the […]

Your Guide To Dodging The G20

Friday, June 25, 2010

Yesterday there was tension in the air. Riding around downtown Toronto, doing some errands, it was clear that drivers and transit-drivers seemed to be in a foul mood.

Dealing With PTF (Post-Trip Funk): My Return Home

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

It’s been over a week since I arrived back here in North America, switching hemispheres, jumping from Fall to Spring — yet again. I’m sure most, if not all, can relate when I say it’s been surreal. Even when reading Jon’s post on the PTF (Post-Trip Funk), I kept saying to myself: “that could never happen to me.” Well, it did, and with […]

The Great Debate: NYC vs. SF

Friday, April 23, 2010

It seems that North Americans are perpetually torn and divided on which “coast” to favor. Seeing as the United States and Canada are such expansive countries, it’s a luxury to be able to judge those on the other side of the nation. In Canada, there is a quiet, yet pervasive, rivalry between Vancouver and Toronto […]

Wednesday, March 3, 2010

This week the NY Times hailed London, England, as the next city for the coffee craze.
