Night Out With our PS3 Rock Band Crew in Toronto

After a few days of intense non-stop work, we were glad to unwind with
a friend who lives in Toronto. Driving to his place was an adventure
even with a GPS, as we unintentionally got onto railroad tracks
towards incoming train cars. Honest mistake. We went to his quaint
lowrise condo in the Toronto proper for some chips, chicharon, roasted
almonds, home-made salsa dip and guacamole. His condo complex is a
long brick warehouse on the west side of Lansdowne just below
Davenport. This converted warehouse has a very big atrium for
residents and it's very beautiful. It reminds me of the houses in the
Yaletown district in Vancouver. He also served some local beer,
including Coffee Porter beer which I enjoyed last time we visited with
him at a local distillery in the old Toronto area.

For dinner, we went out to Zocalo bistro / restaurant at The Junction,
which is an up and coming neighborhood hangout for the working-types I
am told. We had three different types of cheese, a few shareables and
more wine. I like this restaurant because it looks like it was an old
house that was converted into a casual and hip restaurant/bistro

After dinner, we went back to his condo to have a go at The Beatles
Rock Band PS3 game complete with a microphone, two electric guitars,
and a drum set. It was a lot of fun, and never pictured our group
playing PS3 Rock Band after working very hard for two days in Toronto.
We went back to our hotel rooms that night rocked-out, tipsy, and
stuffed.
