PhotoBlog – A Cold Saturday Walk on Ossington

A cold Saturday in April.  Yes, it was snowing this morning!

Time to head out to the neighbourhood. First stop: The Saint Tavern for scones, maple bourbon bacon and deviled eggs.

Walked down to discover Amaya Express finally has their liquor license:

We stopped into Annie Aime to say hi and see she has her store set up with some very cute displays. Men’s and women’s clothing and some very nice shoes:

And nice jewelry:

Across the street it looks like the foundations and the start of an elevator shaft tower at Motif are moving along nicely:

We stopped in and said hi at Williams Craig and checked out some of the funky items they have for sale at this interior design shop.  This little monkey caught our eye sitting quietly in a chair in the front area. His name is Ludovico:

The group of designers go out shopping often and bring in what they find for display at the front of their store. A lot of neat things on hand today, and keep an eye on their quite active blog for WC Collective.

A further walk down to Angell Gallery where we checked out some of the works of Alex McLeod who creates digital images of fantastical worlds as well as works of art using a 3D printer.

It was time for a beer and so we headed up to Bellwoods for a quick pint and checked out the progress on the area where the kitchen used to be. Looks like it’s almost ready: bell

Despite the cold there were a lot of folks still on the patio. Lots of hats, gloves and coats with the outdoor pints:

Finally, the walk wouldn’t be complete without a stop at the new Cote de Boeuf where we looked at some of the beef aging in the front window cooler:

    Every day, I look to see where they have moved Ludovico. Sometimes he’s on the desk, sometimes on a chair….

  • He’s awesome!
