Today March 22, 2015 is the last day to skate at Greenwood Park

Today is the last day for the Greenwood Park ice trail – the last chance to lace up your skates. Cold outside so the ice should be nice. Also, friends reported the Winter Stations show is still on today March 22. Here’s a photo I took a couple of weeks ago. Beach-winterstationMarch2015

See the winning designs from the international design competition for this great show. And here are photos of all the winter stations in Azure magazine.

Stay warm. It’s spring… Soon it will be spring.

Urban Bulk Emporium a welcome addition to the neighbourhood – March 13, 2015

Posted March 18, 2015 (Also see our Facebook page.)

Update March 19, 2015 – This is now the most-viewed post ever on this blog – 1,060 views in its first 24 hours! Clearly there is a lot of interest in this store.

Stopped into our new local store today – Urban Bulk Emporium. Owners Cory (in photo) and Aziza live in the neighbourhood and have put a ton of sweat equity into the former Film Buff location (R.I.P.) at 1380 Queen East. A few doors east of Greenwood Avenue.

I strongly suggest you check it out! A lot of good food on offer. Their Facebook page.
