#83 – Brickworks Winter Village

Every weekend in the winter (and well into the Spring when the name switched to the Container Market), The Brickworks had an awesome set up of various vendors and activities set up inside shipping containers.  Around those were picnic tables, chairs and fire pits.  It was really fantastic and we hope they do it again next year!


Details: Information about the Evergreen Brickworks and their various events can be found here.

#48 – Children’s Discovery Centre

We love the Children’s Discovery Centre.  I’ve taken Henry a few times since he was six months, and a couple months ago we went as a family.  Henry goes bananas for it every time.


Details:  Information can be found here.  The space they are running out of is temporary (the Centre started as a pilot project), so check the website if you plan to go.  It looks like it will be open in the current location until end of July.

#20 – Graffiti alley

Graffiti alley is known as the backdrop for Rick Mercer’s rants.  Toronto has some amazing street art, and after wandering the official Graffiti Alley, we’re looking forward to finding some of the other stretches well known in the city.


Details: Graffiti Alley (or Rush Lane) runs from Spadina to Portland between Queen & Richmond.

#18 – Take Henry to the Badlands

Last weekend we were planning on driving out to the Badlands.  When googling directions, we discovered they’ve been closed to the public to protect the geographical awesomeness.  Totally understandable, super disappointing.

#6 – Old fashioned pop shop

So it’s been a while since we blogged, and there’s a serious backlog of posts, so I’m going to try to get caught up this weekend; but also be pretty lazy about it and likely only post one photo per thing.

We went to the Bean and Baker a couple weeks back and got some soda and cookies (and then went to the dog park across the street to watch the dogs play; food + entertainment!). Delicious and super cute.


Details: Bean and Baker is at Harbord and Grace.  More information can be found here.
