I am full.
I decided a few weeks ago that today was going to be my day to venture into Toronto. Despite the fact that I have a butt load of work to do, I decided that taking a full day off was essential.
The day began with brunch at the Beer Bistro (on King street). Verdict – yum. While I waited for my friends Silvia and Angela to arrive, I sampled a very tasty and very hoppy beer-y beverage. In case you aren’t aware, I’m a big fan of hoppy beer.
Brunch was fantastic – Crab Benedict on a potato patty. Delicious.
Afterwards I wandered the city while I awaited Gerarda, Alan, Steph, and Eric to arrive. I may or may not have treated myself to some delicious chocolate from Godiva and a tall soy latte from Starbucks. Waiting for people requires treats. That’s a rule folks. Write it down.
After meeting with the nerds, we ventured to our selected dinner locale – Osteria. There we enjoyed some very delicious wines, oysters, anti-pasti, and pasta. In a word – holy-crapshite-delicious.
Anyway, I’m on my way home now and ready for bed. Because today was full. And I couldn’t be happier.
