Yesterday was one of these days where I and some friends were let loose onto the streets of Toronto and where did we go?! THE DISTILLERY DISTRICT. Yah, that's right. Probably one of the most heavenly places in all of Toronto, with its amazing balance of old industrial architecture with modern art and design not to mention the collection of shops and cafes there are to die for. We saw Building 47, the Nightlight's art installation, the #LOVE art piece, Yonge Eglington Centre for the Arts, Cafe Furrbo, Balzac's Coffee Roasters as well as the construction guys setting up the Christmas tree and holiday decorations. My eyes nearly died of a happiness overdose and so will yours as soon as you scroll down. I am actually already planning my next visit to Distillery and I am pretty certain it will be in a few weeks when they officially unveil the Christmas tree and kick off the holiday season. I honestly don't know what could be better, and it is just the incentive I need to get me through the next few weeks of exams and assignments and all basic school related hellish-ness. So keep on the lookout because a post about that adventure will be coming in the next few weeks and I can guarantee it will be a fantastical holiday feast for the eyes.
So, what are your favourite districts or places in Toronto? Or better yet what spots IN the Distillery District should I pay more attention to the next time I am there? Let me know in the comment section of this post and lets have a discussion about what makes Toronto so great! Hope everyone is having an awesome week and is starting to get as excited about the Christmas/Holiday season as much as I am. And before you ask, yes I am aware it is only November, but we are getting close so the early anticipation is perfectly acceptable in my books.
