I agree that Summerlicious menus are not the way to experience fine dining in Toronto. That said, I've had some great meals during summer/winterlicious but the trick is to stay away from the big names like Canoe, Centro... which are probably all booked anyway, unless you want the 5pm seating. I was dragged to Canoe once during summerlicious and it was entirely forgettable and very different than at other times. The last time I was at Bymark for lunch during summerlicious,...
I spent virtually every Friday night and Saturday at my maternal grandparents home growing up in MTL. My sister and I were definitely their favorite grandkids since my mother was the only child they had living in the same city and we spent lots of time with them.

I have at least 5 pairs of different wingtips but no longwings. I don't like the way the leather wraps all the way around the heel - just like I don't like galosh oxfords.

Skipping work/school with my son to go watch world cup soccer and drink beer at 10am.
