The last two nights have been about a return to familiar places, and a new friend from the east coast.
Last night Lindsay and I went back to the original Boxcar Social at Summerhill, and did our best to drink them out of sours. We had beers from Burdock, Trou du Daible, Burdock again, and the Guilty Remnant white chocolate white stout from Blood Brothers.
We also ordered a pepperoni pizza and garlic fingers (with donair sauce!) from YeahYeahs Pizza next door, the local incarnation of a Nova Scotia pizza joint. Damn good pizza. I’m a fan. And! They’ll pass it right through the wall into Boxcar for you.
Tonight we hit Midfield, where I haven’t been in ages, for a drink before Lindsay met up with friends for dinner. We shared winter squash salad w/ asian pear, hazelnuts & bleu d’auvergne and venison carpaccio w/ pickled mushrooms, smoked honey & pine nuts. Also: wine, naturellement.
