Cafe con Leche - Espresso Bar

So we'll finally be getting an espresso bar on Dupont. Cafe con Leche seems to be moving quick to be opening near Edwin. These are the same people that operate Cocoa Latte and Clay in the St.Clair and Christie area...much needed in the neighborhood and especially along those beautiful buildings that have been abandoned so long on Dupont.

ps-also noticed that bar on the north side(This Month...) seems to have new signage going up and they are fixing the facade...wishful thinking that it may actually be going through a makeover?

Condos vs. chocolate in West-end land use fight

From cbc.ca:

Should condos be allowed beside the Nestle chocolate factory in Toronto’s west end?

Land use issues in the area are causing conflicts between developers and the chocolate factory that’s been there for decades.

1) Buying Indigo e-giftcards. For each $25 giftcard purchased (for your own purposes), 1 book will be donated to Perth P.S. Gift cards do not expire.
2) Adopt Perth P.S. (For every 50 adopters, Perth P.S. will receive 1 free book)
3) Giving a cash donation where every $12 gives 1 book to Perth P.S. (non-tax deductible)

JT in the New York Times

A friend of mine who lives in the Bronx, NYC, sent me this article. Our 'hood made it into the New York Times Travel section:

An Art Scene Blooms in a Toronto Neighborhood

Despite the article calling the JT Bloordale, you'll see references to streets within our neighbourhood boundaries.

ParkBus Provincial Park Service

I dont want to start a flood of commercial messages on the site but recently I became aware of a service that I had never heard of that was green and potentially a great idea for families that don't own a car but want some nature in their lives.

http://www.parkbus.ca

This clever bus service basically takes you to a few of Ontario's best provincial parks. Until they started there was no transit to any Ontario Parks and this project is a project of the Transportation Options (T.O.), a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering sustainable tourism and transportation in Ontario.

Hot Water Fraud

Just had a pushy sales rep (a young girl, green eyes brown hair about 5 feet tall) from “Ontario Consumer” at the door claiming to be acting on behalf of Direct Energy. I called Direct Energy and she is lying and it’s a scam. Don’t give her entry to your home (she will claim she needs to know the size of your hot water tank to make an appointment for an upgrade) and definitely don’t sign anything. Don't know why these people are still allowed to operate. No legitimate supplier will come to your door in this fashion and lie to you.
