summer friday beer o’clock

image from www.flickr.comFriday of my week back to work after that luscious and restful week off.  Work is getting busy again and I have to wrestle my mind back into work mode.  I have to wrestle really hard.  It is, then, a most welcome Friday beer o'clock with my best people at the Flatiron & Firkin patio.  I always admire these flourishy brackets on the lovely Flatiron building.  It's Friday.  It's summer.  Life is good.  

out walking: distillery district, corktown, st. lawrence market

Its a gorgeous, summery first day of the three-day weekend.  Ceri goes for a ride while I catch up with some blogging and picture editing, then we decide to walk over to the Distillery District to check out the arts and crafts fair happening there.  Later, feeling a little peckish, we wander up to Corktown to check out Jamie Kennedy's Gilead Cafe, which has had some great reviews.  Unfortunately, we arrive between meal servings, so we share a plate of their apparently famous poutine.  Yep, it was out of this world; not gooey and cheesy like typical poutine, but served with roasted beef brisket and its gravy.  Oh my. 

We make our way back down to the St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood where we have big salads at the Jason George.  Walk slowly back home and have wine on my roof.  It's a really good day.
