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.

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.
