So, I’m moving to Toronto


#1

Tell me cool stuff to do there and where to eat and drink and hang out please. All welcome to visit obviously. Any other DiSers there?


#2

Oh wow! Congratulations GP!


#3

i went in february. it was really cold.

so maybe bring a coat with you?


#4

Just came back from Toronto yesterday (hols, obvs). Great place really liked it, I’m very envious of you.

Some eating highlights were Porchetta & Co and Maker Pizza. Really liked Kensington Market and Queen St West area. Chinatown is plentiful for eating options too.


#5

We went there on holiday last year - loved it. I think we just used loads of tips from here.

A friend of mine lived there for a bit a few years ago. Be prepared for it to be very hot in summer and very cold in winter.


#6

Also, read and watch Scott Pilgrim before you go, then you can spot all the locations when you’re there.

My neighbour Toronto

Also, the Royal Ontario Museum - holy shit!

Usually when you go to these types of museums they’ve got like 1 Dinosaur skeleton, couple of fossils, maybe a whale or something like that, the RoM has fucking LOADS of Dinosaur stuff! Its mad. I was in my element. They have other stuff too but the dinosaur exhibit blew my mind.


#10

Been meaning to go to Montreal, will jog down to Toronto when i do.


#11

Get massively behind my beloved Toronto FC, a decent MLS team with noisy fans. The poutine there is decent too.


#12

Go see my friend Colm.


#13

I’ve got friends who live near Bellwoods Park. It seemed very nice round there, although we didn’t stray too far from their place so I haven’t got too many tips. Also, it was six years ago that we visited, so all our tips would be out of date now anyway.


#14

The 6 is great


#15

anyone else singing the title of this thread to the tune of ibiza by the vengaboys?


#16

fuck sake niki


#17

One of my favorite cities. Great choice. I’m going next month to visit friends in Burlington.

I would recommend the beach on Toronto Island for a great spot for a picnic.

and Sonic Boom Records (which I think has moved since my last visit but still looks massive)


#18

that the ‘clothing optional’ one?


#19

ooh… I didn’t realise I had that option.

*I remained full clothed throughout the evening.


#20

Keanu Reeves grew up there.

That’s all I know. How come you get to live in so many cool places GP?
