In between errands and work we found time to take a Sunday afternoon off. We watched Avengers: Age Of Ultron (imdb | rotten tomatoes) at the Yonge & Dundas VIP, and it was what I expected: very good, but nothing surprising, nothing outstanding. Granted, the first one set the bar high, but I felt like the sequel chased the success of the first too often. Not that anyone could argue with that, given how much money it made, but I was hoping for a slight shift to keep things interesting. It wasn’t a bad movie. It was a very good movie, in fact. I was just hoping — fairly or not — for more.
We left the theatre and walked down to the Bier Markt for some lunch. Well…a charcuterie board and three beers each, anyway. It was just so nice to sit on a patio, enjoy the sunshine, eat some snacks, drink some cold (Euro-centric) beer, and relax. And WHAT a joy to not have cigarette smoke anywhere on a patio now. I could hardly ask for more.
