Bringing the SO to Toronto for the first time, looking for advice...

snicmhuilean | Jan 10, 201108:10 PM

Hi all,

I am a former Torontonian who left about 10 years ago to move to Montreal, and am bringing my SO to my hometown for the first time. He's never been, so I'd like to give him the most memorable experience possible. I've been gone for so long that most of the places I once went to are probably closed or unrecognizable.

We're staying at the Drake Hotel, in the West Queen West neighbourhood, but I would also like to give him tours of all of my old stomping grounds, primarily in the west end. We'll be there Jan 28-31, and will have a budget of about 120-150$/day for the two of us.

So far, we have some Winterlicious ideas, especially for a couple of places around Ossington. I'm also going to bring him to some of the sausage vendors, since that is an experience that is sadly lacking in Montreal.

So, hounds, got any suggestions for us?

If it helps at all, we're in our late-20s and mid-30s.

The Drake Hotel
1150 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6J, CA
