1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Cheers,

    See me!
    But that would mean you'd be real!
    thought so
    I have no idea what even the typical touristy things in Toronto would be... if you don't like Hockey that is.

    Going to the CN tower, visiting the Hard Rock Cafe in Dundas Square, shopping in Eaton Centre, MAYBE going to the St. Lawrence market...and if you were REALLY brave...walking down Queen Street West past Bathurst. [​IMG]

    Also, I'm so real that I'm too real for this thread.

    It pisses me off that we don't have an Edward Green store, or even Edward Green within another store.


    No longer true, Robert Jones in RBC Plaza downtown sells Edward Green. Not sure about pricing (likely egregious) but at least it's an option.

    Guu Izakaya is a fun place for dinner, though you have to wait for a table. Same thing for Black Hoof (which is pricier than Guu but also better). Woodlot seems to be the restaurant of the moment, and it's quite good if you can get a table.

    Eaton Centre / Yonge and Dundas is absolute Hell, but I guess tourists go there. Queen West is sort of fun, or Yorkville if that's more your speed. St Lawrence market is OK.

    If it's a nice day and you really feel like walking, start at Yorkville in the morning. Then head down university avenue and check out the Royal Ontario Museum.

    Then wander around U of Toronto - some really old cool buildings there - some of them stand in for Harvard in some movies.

    Keep on heading south to Kensington Market then wander around a bit - it's next to Chinatown. Either have roast duck (yes it's awesome) or pho for dinner. Keep on heading south to Queen West for drinks.

    Sweet thanks!

    By egregious do you just say that because EG is expensive or because it'll be 20-30% above NYC prices like l'uomo in montreal? [​IMG]

    See me!

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


    No. I endorse this suggestion. If you see TG, she will show you a good time. [​IMG]

    The city was beautifully shot in the film Chloe. As were Amanda Seyfreids phenomenal breasts.

    Made me want to visit. Both.

    this city is kind of small

    i go to the u of t and live practically in kensington market, and i've taken up alcoholism/gambling-type skullduggery out of pure boredom

    if you smoke marijuana you'll probably be able to while away your time here

    +1 I'd like to check out the ROM again, haven't been there in years. But Yorkville is one of the nicer places to walk, although the people....
