Well, there was the recent lunch hoedown organized by Naomi, Drew and their team in the production office…

Sheriff Naomi runs this town.  Robbie chows down.  Nancy makes her allegiances clear.  This aint Julia’s first rodeo.  Noreen and I with the poster for our new action flick.  I take on all comers to Kal If Fee, the ancient trial by lirpa.


Out with Ayisha and Dave before Ayisha heads off to her next gig, leaving David to hold the fort – and the gym/school.


Checked out Five Point Nashville Hot Chicken with Alex Levine.  Oddly, you have a choice between mild, slightly spicy, and Carolina Reaper blowtorch.  Would have been nice to have a medium habanero burn before graduating to the full-on burn.  My favorite place for fried chicken in Toronto remains the Korean take at Home of Hot Taste.


Lunch at standing up Sushi Bar Tachi.


Visited the Distillery District with Akemi.

Also, revisited the Hattendo Cafe (13 Baldwin Street) and saw five movies – Shazam, Detective Pikachu, Avengers: Endgame, Brightburn, and John Wick 3: Parabellum – two of which I really enjoyed.

  1. Brightburn and Shazam, my guess. But Endgame is the only one I have actually seen (and loved) so I really don’t know if any of the others are good or not. Then again Shazam is the only other one I would even be remotely interested in, so…

  2. Which two? I bet one of them is John Wick. I love they way the previous movies switches moods. One minute John is shooting people in the head and the next, he’s having a casual conversation. Business as usual.

    You have a good life!

    I’m just doing what i normally do. Swimming in the mornings, karate a couple of times a week and keeping up with work. I’m “trying” to start jogging again. Whew! Swimming muscles aren’t the same as running muscles. I’m having to work up to a block.

    On the family side: My mom is having some blood pressure/heart issues. I need to make time to run over for a mom visit.

    I hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

  3. Hey Joe! As previously mentioned my buddies and I are in Montreal today and about to board the via rail to Toronto. Probably find a bar to watch the basketball game tonight and then go to the Blue Jays game tomorrow. Hoping to hit up Hattendo tomorrow morning, too!

  4. I go to a Tuesday matinee each week. Some mornings I have the theater all to myself, which is eerie and enjoyable. Of course I loved Endgame, even with the picky faults others point out, but I care not. Shazam and Detective Pikachu were good fun. Brightburn came and went before I got to it, but I’m okay with that. I’d need to see the other Wicks first before 3.

    Aladdin was fun too, and well done. I adored Rocketman, but can see how it will not appeal to everyone. The Hustle wasted my free monthly ticket, a direct remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels with tits and less humor. Bohemian Rhapsody was amazing, and I really liked Captain Marvel.

    Next week is Secret Life of Pets 2. I expect to be entertained, but not challenged.

  5. Busy!! Ayisha— such a loving heart and positive energy. I miss seeing her on Dark Matter, but that would be cool if she is in this new show.

    As far as the movies, I’ve only seen John Wick 3 and can vouch for that one. I’d like to go to The Secret Life of Pets 2 and A Dog’s Purpose.
