So, does anyone know some cool bars in the downtown Toronto area? I'll be staying at the Mariott Bloor Yorkville, which I believe is a couple of miles away from the 'Dome. I'll be there the entire WM weekend. I'm open to pretty much anything, but my preferences are: Bars over clubs, a college-aged crowd, and a jukebox with lots of rock on it. Any suggestions?
I recommend "C'est What?" on Front Street - great beer - I recommend the Raspberry Wheat (it may sound lame, but it is really, REALLY good), great atmosphere - no jukebox but plenty of high-quality live bands on a constant basis.
Check out http://www.toronto.com/section/bars_nightlife for a more detailed list of bars in the area.
The Sports Front on Front St. (close to the Dome) is a great sports bar, or the Sports Cafe at the corner of Yonge and St. Clair.
We used to live at a bar called the Devil's Martini...it's a block down from Whiskey Saigon, closer to Yonge St. Crowd is late 20's, and the dance floor is always packed. I couldn't find it on that toronto.com site, so I'm not sure if it's still open.
There's a campus bar at U of T that you'd probably enjoy; it's called the Brunswick House.
If you like places where ladies take their clothes off for money, and who doesn't, the Brass Rail on Yonge St. is the place.
Q: If you could have interviewed Marvin Gaye, where would you have proposed to meet and what would you have asked him?
A: I would have met anywhere as long as it was before his father shot him. I would have asked him, "Hey, don't you think there's some chance that your father might shoot you? To death, I mean?"
Yes, I am now a lawful permanent resident of this fine country. The green card, of course, is not green. Now that I'm able to work, maybe I'll stop texting BPD so much during the day. He must be sick of dealing with me by now.
