Travels around Toronto

(November 10th 2010)

We had an lovely long lazy morning getting up and ended up catching the tour bus around 11am. The plan was to use it to get to the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) but as we kinda missed breakfast, by the time we got close we were both starving to dived into a pub nearby called the Village Idiot Pub. A pint of Alexander Keiths for me and strawberry beer for Amanda was helped down by some fish & chips (me) and chicken pesto linguine (her). I wasn’t going to have something as British as fish&chips here but I saw someone else having it and it looked lovely (it was).

After that we borrowed a wheelchair from the gallery, paid the huge entrance fee ($40 almost for the two of us. Now the tories are in it’ll be like that to get in the Tate soon enough) and went in. The gallery is huge and we didn’t see everything but it was really rather good. It houses contemporary art as well as older stuff and also has a Henry Moore exhibit. Altogether pretty good.

We grabbed the bus back to the hotel to get ready for the basketball game tonight. It’s too far for Amanda to walk and the traffic is horrendous so I’m hoping it calms down soon so we can grab a cab to the Air Canada Centre in time for the game.
