Rapid Fire Toronto Qs

Favourite local restaurant:

Gold Standard Sandwiches!

Favourite street in your city:

Either Ossington or Roncesvalles. I love that they are a combination of cool shops and restaurants, but also feel lived in with hardware stores, antique shops and fruit stands.

Favourite park in your city:

I grew up near High Park so it’s my #1, but it’s hard to beat a summer afternoon at Trinity Bellwoods

Favourite music venue in your city:

Either Massey Hall or the Drake Underground, very different in size but both sound great and make for a more intimate music experience.

Favourite music store in your city:

I love Kaos music, the guys there are always really friendly and helpful.
