S Sense in Design

Have you noticed that cute little store on Coxwell just north of Danforth. It’s called S Sense in Design and it is hosting the art of Mafalda Silva. The exhibition will be displayed from April 26th – June 27th.  S Sense in Design is at 698 Coxwell Avenue and is open Thursday and Friday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m to 4 p.m.

Fuzz Box

Check out the East End Pioneer’s blog post on a new restaurant on the Danforth, The Fuzz Box (insert your own joke here). They specialize in a Nova Scotia donair. And if you don’t know what that is, then you better stop in and find out.

The Groove Bar

Speaking of restaurants, I took my little boys to the Groove Bar tonight for dinner. Yes, I took my young children to a bar for dinner.  Now, before you get all righteous and judgemental on me…actually I have no good excuse, you can feel free to be righteous and judgemental. Anyway, the food was good and Mama, the owner, was perfectly delightful. We played foosball and had a great time. So there.

Logical Consequences

It probably stands to reason that following the proliferation of bakeries would come the proliferation of gyms and exercise studios. You may already know that I pump iron at Legacy Studio, and there is also now Bomb Wellness and (coming soon) Tidal CrossFit – all on Danforth west of Coxwell. For those of you with babes in arms, you may want to try out Legacy’s Mommy and Me class on Mondays at 3:30 p.m. I hear it’s great fun and a great workout. For more info, contact Andy at info(at)

  1. Hey, I was taken to pubs for meals by my folks on a regular basis (in the smoking era even), and I turned out just fine!

    Very excited to hear about the Crossfit studio.

  2. My husband and I went to the Groove on Thursday because they have an open mic comedy night….. apart from it starting a bit late (I was watching the clock because we had to get home to our twin one year old boys) it was definitely a good time – there were a couple of pretty funny acts and the acts that were a bit rough around the edges were quick enough.
