Brother #2 was in town this weekend. Just left, actually, wending his way across Toronto streets in the throes of multiple disruptions — rides, parades, torch runs, the like.
We had a busy weekend though: a pint and then pizzas at Libretto Friday night; Fahrenheit, then the Market on Saturday morning followed by some camera shopping and an afternoon spent at Volo sampling their beer and watching the rain beat down, and then to Yonge Dundas Square to see Mad Max: Fury Road (imdb | rotten tomatoes) which was a ton of fun. We weren’t sure if we’d make it there dry; in the hours we spent sitting on Volo’s patio we watched a pretty severe rainstorm go through.
We made dinner last night: shrimp and calamari and grilled rack of lamb, and bottles of Five Rows 2014 Pinot Gris Le Vieux Pin 2011 Syrah. Maybe a little whisky for dessert. This morning we had more Fahrenheit before the brother and I made bacon and eggs and watched old episodes of Deadwood. He’s gone now, packed up and headed south.
Stop by anytime, bro.
