.....ish. I'll probably be back in the summer. I was last there in '99, and it had changed from how i remembered it.
I flew out of and into Heathrow, and both flights were 80% Indian Asian, so much so that the specialist meals were served first. I hadn't realised the size of Toronto's asian community.
Great rail link from the airport to the city.
Whilst I was there, it wasn't cold enough tbh, very funny weather, unpleasantly mild if that makes sense. Not cold enough to wear your warm stuff easily, but not warm enough not to wear it. A bit of exercise and you're sweating. Coat on/off, etc.
Could've got hold of tickets for the ice hockey, but they were ridiculously expensive and according to the locals that we talked to, they were in the middle of a shit spell, and not worth paying to watch. I watched the game however in the sports bar that you recommended. Pre-booked a table and ate them out of chicken wings. The clientele was very sporty and not at all milfy.
The saturday day was spent drinking in the bars opposite the train station and arena. Loose Moose? Went up the CN Tower as well, which is well worth it, just to see the plumb bob movement thing. In the evening went to see Muse, which was a bit too Musey. Should've known, seen 'em, before, and thought that they were a bit shit. After that went for a Chinese at
Taste of China Seafood Restaurant, which i thought was acemans.
Sunday was spent mooching about the mean streets of toronto, probably on your manor? Queens Street W & King Street W, a couple of decent bars. Didn't end up going to the steak place, as the people i was with weren't overly fussed.
I hope you went out smiling like a child, into the cool remnant of a dream.
