    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    If Indian food is not too adventurous for your dining companions or yourself, I would HIGHLY recommend Dhaba, located at 309 King St W.

    Every time (and I mean every) I am in Toronto, I make it a point to go there. The food is amazing and authentic. To make my point, I have a friend how emigrated from India 15 - 20 yrs ago. When I took him there, his comment was simply, "I miss this food..."

    If you do go, and are not up on the different dishes from India, I recommend the sample Prix Fixe menu. Its amazing and you will not be dissapointed.

    ...bon appetit

    What do you like - in terms of cuisine, activities, hobbies, etc. Toronto is a big place and cater to almost every whim - except men's shoes.

    Toronto has some decent food if you venture outside the downtown box (Front to Bloor, Spadina to Yonge). Otherwise it's just a midwestern city that thinks it's way cooler than it is.

    Go to Queen St. west of Bathurst for shopping, eat at Black Hoof, Buca, Splendido and Jacobs & Co., then catch a flight out.

    Canadian chicks will be all over you because you are American. They'll be like "Oh, please stick your sexy American wang in me, eh?" Remeber that their men are effeminate and French and socialist. Watch out for the hockey players, though. You'll probably lose that fight.

    Um, that would be most of us. Well, excepting the immigrants ... [​IMG]

    I am 24. Taking a day trip from Detroit. Visiting a few friends in Michigan and they want to see Toronto. Down for good food and a few sights. Probably head back to Detroit in the evening.

    I can't think of too many non touristy places to go. Maybe Kensington Market? If only because it has less of a touristy feel to it and it's unlike any other part of the downtown core:

    I like living in toronto, but don't really see it as a tourist destination. NYC, much more so. It pisses me off that we don't have an Edward Green store, or even Edward Green within another store. Shopping here sucks by comparison to NY, at least for men. Women have it much better, with actual Chanel, LV, Prada, Hermes stores... NY has us beat by a long shot on entertainment too, but it's not like you can't find something to do, whether it's theater or opera, or a baseball/hockey/basketball game.

    Dining options here aren't bad, but wouldn't know what to suggest to 24 year olds. Maybe Terroni's or Libretto pizza? Bars/clubs? Ask someone else heh...

    See me!

    Just kidding. Go and do typical touristy things, because god knows whatever I suggest will get ignored anyway. [​IMG]
