risk of kidney theft trumps degrassi obsession in toronto

Linette wants to take me to Toronto for my birthday, which is coming up next week. While I’m very tempted, I’m afraid that I’m going to have to say no… As for the birthday, instead of having a real celebration with flesh and blood people, I’m thinking about having a virtual party here at MM.com. So, if you’ve got a little time on Monday, drop by the site and and have a beer with me.

    KT and I would offer several good reasons to go (we were there last summer and didn’t lose our kidneys), one of which would be the pretty sweet St. Lawrence Market (http://www.stlawrencemarket.com/). However, I would like to offer two caveats: first, make sure that if you’re heading into downtown during rush hour and you don’t have specific directions to the hotel you’re staying at (indeed, you just think you can wing it and find it by sight) that you are at least on an empty bladder while trying to do so. Attempting to find a hotel while bleeding urine out your eyes is not pleasant for either the person needing to pee or his spouse.

    Second, please to stay away from Captain John’s Harbour Boat Restaurant unless you simply need something to complain about. Not only did I feel like I was dining in some guest-star episode of Scooby Doo (the atmosphere is very seafaring Scoobyesque), but one of the creepier things for a restaurant restroom I’ve ever seen is that the stalls were carpeted… that old grand red movie theater tight-weave stuff, and it looked as if it hadn’t been replaced in years. There’s just too much that’s too gross about carpet in an oft-used set of stalls that I can’t abide. http://www.captainjohns.ca/

    If he takes requests, I’d like to have both of Joey Jeremiah’s kidneys.

    A third caveat about St. Lawrence Market: it’s closed on Mondays (as we found out last Memorial Day).

    Sounds fun. But since we’ll be drinking, howsabout we just meet at the the Corner Brewery’s blog.
