One of the founding fathers of the St. Lawrence Market Neighbourhood BIA, he was instrumental in making…

Whether you are taking a long weekend or seven blissful days away from the work grind, Toronto’s annual heatwave will have you looking for ways to stay cool, hydrated, relaxed…

They go by many names. Papa, pops, father, and even pappy if you’re some kind of prospector from the 1800s. But here at Old Town Toronto…well, we like the name Dad.  Father’s Day is upon us and on this day we salute the Dads in our life who give us advice when we need it,…

June is officially our favourite month. You can go outside without a parka (most days) and the blanket of humidity that covers our beloved city during the hottest summer days, well it has yet to arrive. It is also the month we choose to celebrate fathers and father figures, be they fathers to humans, pets…

With times being as uncertain as they are, heck, after more than a year of this uncertainty, we’ve been feeling a little mystical lately and thought hey, why not consult the divine powers for some answers and look towards one of the oldest divination methods there is, the tarot deck? Now, don’t get us wrong,…

Alright, look, since we’ve been in this lockdown after what was a very brief, glorious moment of having patios open (when was that? March? April? What even is time these days? We recall heat lamps and people wrapped up in blankets and the patios closing before the main course even arrived), it’s time to be…

Mother’s Day is upon us this weekend and it’s a day where we honour the one we call Uma, Madar, Majka, Mama, Ina, Makuahine, or just plain Mom. In fact, Mother’s Day is the day where we show our devotion to the matriarch of our lives by treating her like the Queen that she is!…

We’re just going to come out and say it. While we’ve been getting our retail therapy fix nicely through online stores, we miss being able to just go out on the (old) town to visit as many stores as possible and try out certain products ourselves before buying. We’re talking about anything from clothes and…

According to Wikipedia, “March is the third month of the year and named after Mars in both the Julian and Gregorian calendars. It is the second of seven months to have a length of 31 days. In the Northern Hemisphere, the meteorological beginning of spring occurs on the first day of March. The March equinox on…

Love! L’amour! Mīlestība!  Valentine’s Day, the day of love, is upon us once more and we’re feeling romance in the air. As the French say, “Excusez-moi, où sont les toilettes?” Ah, what a beautiful language it is. Whether you’re a fan of Valentine’s Day or not, it’s a great excuse to show your love and…

Ok, February is NOT our favourite month, not by a long shot. It is cold, snowy and our boots are salt stained from trudging along the city sidewalks.  At least we are only looking at 28 days total for the month. Can you imagine if we were facing a leap year and had to endure…
