Let’s face facts, dog owners love their pets. Even as I write this I’m finding it hard to use the word “pet” as many owners would call their dog’s their children. How else can you explain the popularity of events such as the Zombie Dog Walk in Etobicoke? Zombie Dog Walk is put on by the great people at Paws on the Shore, a hiking group...

If you’ve read our previous restaurant write-ups you’ll know that we’re big fans of sushi here around the office. In fact, we’re such big fans of Momiji Sushi Bar and Grill in Etobicoke that whenever we need to cater an office meeting or a personal event we usually pick up the phone and call Momiji. Momiji Sushi Bar and Grill is located at...

As a youngster my team of choice was the Toronto Maple Leafs but the reality was that we could simply not afford to go to games. Instead my dad brought me to junior games around the city and I had a blast! I still remember those days like they were yesterday. One...
