    Taste of the Danforth reminds me of the old Yogi Berra quote: "nobody goes there anymore, its too busy" :)

    I haven't been in about 5 years, because the last time I went it was too damn crowded.

    Near where the boundaries of North York, York, and
    I went to the Ex primarily to catch Pokémon.

    Note that most of the Pokéstops are located in the southwestern part of the grounds, where the fountains and gardens are (as well as the Fort Rouillé monument, Scadding Cabin, and the wind turbine); there are approximately ten Pokéstops in that area arranged rather linearly.

    The Ex does not have those dreaded Drowzees (or Hypnos) plaguing the rest of the city.

    Much of the midway games' prizes consist of plush Pokémon toys (the vast majority being the Generation 1 starter Pokémon, i.e. Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, and Pikachu, though there are some plush Blastoise and Charizard toys (they are the final evolutions of Squirtle and Charmander, respectively, during the first generation)) to cash in on the PokéRenaissance, along with some of the cute plush dragon toys of various sized from Caravan Softoys.

    This wasn't the most exciting event but we did win the cup, so I guess that makes us winners!

    Where are the best neighbourhoods to visit on halloween, i.e those with the best decorated and scary homes? Any suggestions?

    The Toronto Star once had an article about this. According to the Toronto Star, Cabbagetown is the best neighbourhood for trick-or-treating.

    I find it interesting at the 35-second mark of the video, in which one of the protestors carried the Malaysian flag. To be fair, it looks similar to the American flag.
