What is your favorite word to describe Toronto?


What word best reflects the people of Toronto?


What is the most creative, spiritual or emotional place in Toronto?
Though I love so many places in Toronto, for me it is Trinity Bellwoods Park that is the most emotional place for me. I run there every morning I’m home. I regularly sit there and contemplate life with my journal in hand. I also use it to meet friends for coffee and conversation. Not to mention it’s the best date spot in the city. That’s for sure.
What is your favorite outdoor activity in Toronto?

I already mentioned running in Trinity Bellwoods park, but I would also say running along the waterfront is a very special moment in Toronto. As well just walking the streets alone with earbuds listening to music and people watching, while seeking out vintage vinyl, is a day well spent.

What is your favorite indoor activity in Toronto?

I think Toronto is one of the best food cities in the world. I have traveled to so many countries, and eaten in so many cities considered to be the “best” and I think we have everything locations like NYC, Paris and London have to offer – to name a few. I would definitely say that going out to dinner and having a tremendous meal, with an equally transcendent bottle of wine is my favourite indoor pastime.

What is your favorite sound or noise in Toronto?
My favourite sound in the city is the chatter and electric buzz of a good bar late at night on a street like Ossington or College. Full of laughter, and merriment, and booze fueled connections and a letting go that only happens in a city at that hour. It’s electric. And I couldn’t imagine my life without it.
What is your favorite smell or taste in Toronto?

My favourite taste in the city is a good bottle of wine at Terroni on Queen West. I think they bring in some of the best wine Italy has to offer, that the average wine enthusiast wouldn’t otherwise have the chance to indulge in.

What drink best reflects Toronto?

I’d say an “old fashion”. It’s a classic timeless cocktail, but it’s still powerful and possesses the potential for a modern twist in the hands of the right bartender.

What song or type of music best reflects Toronto?

Oh. That’s a tough one to answer. Toronto is so diverse and multicultural that no one type of music “reflects” the city - at least not to me. I think what is amazing is that on the same night you can hear 10 different kinds of music, and still be left with more options of other genres if you so desired. That’s Toronto!

If Heaven were Toronto, what would God say to a visitor when they arrive at the Pearly Gates?

They’d say. “Welcome to Heaven good people. Don’t try to indulge all at once. Please take your time. Experience it all. You have an eternity here and an infinite amount of experiences await you! Enjoy!”
