I'm from the T Dizzle Oh



So I thought I'd let Kardinal Offishall give you a tour of the T-Dot  -  because truthfully he does a better job than I ever would.   I barely venture out of my east-end bubble - maybe long enough to grab some Korean eats in the west-end and visit some friends.  Other than that - I am usually at home - you know biggity bloggin' yo!   

If you're new here - you might not know - but I am from Canada.  From Toronto to be exact.  I've lived here for nearly five years.   And sadly I don't know this awesome city as well as I should.

But if you ended up visiting me - I'd have to muster up some plan that made you believe that I knew where all the coolest spots were.  Where the best place to get a a beer is.  Where the best coffee shop is.  I do, however [and not surprisingly] know where to get good chicken wings [Steve is huge chicken wing fan].  And I actually do know a few good spots to get beer [OK maybe more than a few] - and I am not talking about The Beer Store.  I am determined to start learning my city - but sometimes it's really hard to be a tourist in your own city.  So come visit me and we'll do this - and it will give me an excuse to explore more.

I'll take you to the Canadian National (C.N.) Tower - and if you're brave I'll watch you do the edgewalk or walk on the glass floor.  Then I will take you to the Steam Whistle Brewery so we can watch beer be made - mostly because I haven't had the chance to do this yet.  Then I will take you for lunch somewhere - maybe Wayne Gretzky's - because I haven't been there either [his restaurant - because we aren't thick as thieves -yet] - and we'll drink Mill Street Organic [because you should be consuming local beer].  I'll also advise you to visit between the months of July-September - since those are the months that we are blessed with the best weather.

And now that you know where I'm from - what I really wanted to know was where these three ladies below are from.  Because let's be real - I want to Rep it everywhere I go  [I don't even think that works here - but whatever - I did it].  So This is where these ladies be calling home [last lyrical reference - I promise].

So I am going to get a multi-stop ticket - and get my liver ready to visit these ladies - OK maybe my liver doesn't need to be ready for the weak beer in Utah

So tell me - Where you be calling home?

  2. My roots are in Winnipeg Manitoba. The few and the frostbitten! But right now home is Switzerland where the husband got a job and where I can't find brown sugar.

  4. Yay Toronto! Does East-side mean like..Oshawa? or a bit further in? (That is still Toronto as far as I am concerned..)
    Where did you live before you made the leap to T.O?

  6. Toronto sounds amazing and that would be such a fun holiday! I know what you mean about not knowing your own city very well. I recently discovered a 'hidden' garden in my town (Plymouth, UK) that dates back to the 15th century! How did I not know about this before?! If you came to visit me I would take you to the Gin Distillary where you get to learn about the infamous Plymouth Gin. Shame I don't actually like gin though....

  7. I never would have imagined that Toronto is such a big deal! I must be an ignorant American ;-). But question: what do people wear to the clubs in the winter when it's cold out? I just can't imagine them all wear super-skimpy outfits when it's so cold out, but I've never been into a bar/club that wasn't super-warm, especially in winter. I am officially baffled by this.

  9. First of all...I LOVE your about me page. I want something like that for mine! How can we make that happen? Second of all I am STILL waiting on the correct size button. She sent me all the sizes I could ever need minus the size I need for yours. I promise I still want to sponsor you. I will as soon as I can! Pinky promise. :)

  11. I just moved from Toronto in July after being there 5 years and I'm still bitter about it. I couldn't find a job good enough to keep me there, so I moved about an hour away (to a city I hate) into a new place with my boyfriend. Hopefully, once our year lease is up, we'll be back. That's the plan anyways. I love that city so much; the neighborhood I was in, the accessibility to EVERYTHING by walking..ugh.
