    Toronto Restaurants of the 80s and 90s

    There are some references online to a "Don Panini" at that address, no idea on the timeline.

    The seemingly terminal decline of Tim Hortons

    Korea is a hotbed of modern food trends. If they don't evolve or innovate within a year or two, they're done.

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    Standardize batteries and have swap stations across the city like in Taiwan.

    Toronto Artistry Condos | 103.5m | 29s | Tribute | Graziani + Corazza

    Mostly quiet the past few days, just some drilling and banging from the upper floors, and pillars along Dundas.

    Toronto Breweries, Brew Pubs, Bottle Shops

    A mix of rents costs, and a pivot to focusing on the arts/culture scene that they had been fostering in their place. Unsure what this means for the beer. Part of the problem with one offs is that a lot of the time stock can linger, only selling like hot cakes the first week of release. With...

    Toronto Breweries, Brew Pubs, Bottle Shops

    A handful of breweries have changed hands or even shuttered across Ontario, but mostly outside of the city. Local changes IIRC, Halo was sold to by Bevi Birra (local bottle shop) and Laylow is leaving their location and attempting a popup/event model. Rumour is a number of breweries in the GTA...

    LCBO / The Beer Store

    Tobacco and lottery is gatekept behind the counter by the cashier. Alcohol is most jurisdictions will be in the fridges with the soft drinks, barring the super fancy/expensive stuff. A lot easier for kids or shoplifters to pilfer. On that note, I was at Bottega Volo today when a field trip...

    News on retail chains (was: New Mall Retail)

    With Jollibee, one has to get the spicy, the plain is definitely very bland. However the draw for me is they have one of the meatier pieces of fried chicken. EDIT: Personally, with a lot of fried chicken, I skip the sauce they include and douse it in PG Clucks sauce. Popeyes is absolutely...

    I believe it's part of a new wastewater system:

    Metrolinx: Presto Fare Card

    My card "expires" June 2017, and what looks to be a manufacture date of Sep 2011, so it's likely 10+ years old and still kicking.

    Metrolinx: Presto Fare Card

    I definitely notice the additional delay. It was really bad the first week or two, sometimes I would have to take the card out of my wallet to get it to register. It's better now, just with a bit of extra lag versus the old readers. I have the Secrid Slim Wallet which works perfect for me. I...

    What's your Walk Score?

    No complaints here. I grab an Autoshare once or twice a month for out of town errands.

    Speaking of Bellwoods, has there ever been any update on the Dupont location? There was tons of landlord drama which was why the Hafis location came to be, but the last interviews I remember stated the plan wasn't necessarily abandoned, but that was like 2018 or 2019. EDIT: With the expansion...

    Working from home vs. commuting to work during and after the pandemic

    Our small company was ready to go 3 office days a week - until the cases spike around Labour Day. As a result we've been in the office 2 days a week for sales/operations/marketing/management. Our sales team has been performing better with work from home, and prefers it strongly, but management...

    Toronto Union Station Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | NORR

    The Pilot on Ossington (at least shortly after it opened a year or two ago) had the automated pour overs as well.

    Toronto Breweries, Brew Pubs, Bottle Shops

    This is the 4th change in brewer and 3rd in management I can recall - this is the biggest pivot so far. Leaving the the farmhouse-heavy tap list behind for a more trendy menu. So far only their College 506 and Dovercourt Pale Ale have made the cut.

    Toronto Artistry Condos | 103.5m | 29s | Tribute | Graziani + Corazza

    The trees on the NW corner of Dundas & St Patrick are now gone. These pics are Saturday June 19, the few trees with a bit of height and leftover trunks were taken down the next day as well - only the shrubs with a 5' height are left.

    52 Division Parking

    Relic Park was chatted about at the last Grainge neighbourhood meeting I went to in 2019. It's a plan that is recognized by the City, but there's no funding or commitment unless a benefactor steps in. It's not going to happen for a long while. There was some negotiation on implementing it on...

    52 Division Parking

    The parking lot went up right when the first BLM protests started last year. I was assuming it was temporary to handle increased short term demand in personnel, but almost a year later it's still there and still the same ugly eyesore I see every day. Are there renovations being done to their...
