June 2021 - Toronto ON
Monday Mural takes us to Yorkville and more views of a brand new piece of street art.
Tuesday's lanes are in Cabbagetown.
Finally we can dine outdoors! Four to a table.
We had planned on going out on Saturday but John's ankle was bothering him so we stayed in for the weekend. He should have golfed on Monday but it was a rainy day that we turned into Afternoon at the Movies.
Tuesday we took our first Day Trippin' adventure to Niagara Falls. As mentioned in the post we decided it was a good opportunity to avoid crowds as the borders are still closed as are indoor activities/museums but patios are open for lunch.
Sculpture Saturday was also at the Falls.
Wednesday John golfed and I went downtown early before my second shot.
Construction is just nuts downtown. John St. from King to Richmond is closed off.
8-20 Widmer Street Condos will be a 56 storey tower with mixed condo units. The street level will be preserved historic townhouses. The estimated completion date for 8-20 Widmer Street Condos is still unknown.
Thursday arm was a little sore but was fine other than that. John had an achy knee as we headed out for his shot while I grabbed some groceries. Same thing he didn't wait at all.
Friday was a real rainy day so no golf for John and I didn't bother going out. We treated it like a Saturday.
Blue Diablo - delicious!
Juice of half lime
1 tsp. lemon juice

COCKTAIL CIRCUIT - TO DATE
Saturday Spanakopita Greek spinach pie, Greek salad and tzatziki that I bought at St. Lawrence Market and we loved it. I wanted a recipe for fresh spinach, most use frozen. This recipe called for the spinach to be sprinkled with salt to sweat out the water. This made the spinach very salty. Some recipes lightly sauté the spinach with the garlic which I might do next time.
Monday since I wanted to finish the box of phyllo pastry I made Greek meat (lamb) pies.
Tuesday I decided on hamburger patties, mushroom gravy and mashed cauliflower and potatoes.
Wednesday I made fish chowder.
Thursday I had good intentions but got lazy (shot?) as the day rolled on so we ordered Swiss Chalet.
Friday being Friday, steak and salad.
Monday became afternoon movies as it was raining.
Supremacy 2014 The film chronicles the real life events of March 29–30, 1995, perpetrated by Aryan Brotherhood members Robert Walter Scully Jr. and Brenda Kay Moore. After fatally shooting a police officer, white supremacist Garrett Tully, along with his companion, Doreen Lesser, breaks into a house and takes an African-American family hostage.
A hard movie to watch.
Hustlers 2019 based on New York magazine's 2015 article "The Hustlers at Scores" by Jessica Pressler. It follows a crew of New York City strippers who begin to steal money by drugging stock traders and CEOs who visit their club, then running up their credit cards.
A Good Neighborhood has to be one of the saddest books I've read in a long time, white privilege and the burden of being a young black man in today's society. I SO hated Brad!
