|Sunday Antique Market, St. Lawrence Market|
We were all impressed with the lineups of both evenings. The films were poignant, thought-provoking, hilarious, tender, moving, and very memorable.
Hoping to find a wooden step stool for the kitchen we headed to the weekly Sunday Antique Market that takes place in the northern building of the St. Lawrence Market. Alas, I did not find a stool although I did stumble across a copy of The Aylmer Road: An Illustrated History (1994) by Diane Aldred. Aylmer (Quebec) is my former home town, so it was lovely to come across a link to my family's history.
In terms of checking out restaurants and bars, I went for after-work drinks as part of a Queen's alumni social at the new Jazz Bistro last week. We had the upper bar to ourselves and around 8pm a quartet started playing, giving the place a fantastic atmosphere and groove. On Sunday evening a few of us went for Indian at Aroma on King Street West. The food was very good and we all enjoyed our meals. From what I could gather Aroma tends to keep their recipes on the milder/sweeter side. None of us were complaining, mind you, but those seeking more "kick" might be happier somewhere else.
