Do you infuse whiskey or bourbon?

back in the day we'd add 3-4 hits of acid to a 26oz bottle of jack danials and pass it around all night! Good times, and didnt affect the suptle nuances of the J.D. !!

Best old school speakeasy type bars in Toronto?

This is slightly off topic, but trying to remember the name of a vodka bar we went to. It was all Russian decor, and may have been near Starfish (ate there earlier). This kind of fuzzy by then but I remember Russian music with some Madonna-type dance stuff mixed in.....hmm

Blue Mountain/ Collingwood Lunch, Dinner Options?

Will be spending a long weekend in January in the area and was hoping for some unique and local options. Anything where an adventurous andcompletely non-picky four year old would be happy, would be appreciated aswell. Also ,we will have a kitchenette, so any cool shops (cheese, bakery, etc.) would be great aswell.
Thanks in advance

Pretty openminded as far a types of food as long as its great. Price is really no object, just want great food. Would prefer something thats not outside the city.

Been out of the loop, what's new and exciting and not too far from the Royal York

I'll be in town for a conference, and am looking for something on a Wednesday night.
Am looking for something with a casual vibe but interesting food. Price is a non-issue.
It will be a small (5-10ppl) mixed work crowd (old/young/adventurous and not so much)
I realize this is a pretty non-specific request, but im just hoping to see whats new and exciting in town these days. Of course I'll be checking out the Toronto board for the next couple of weeks.
Any opinions and idea would be appreciated...

Hamilton Lunch?

Looking for a kid-friendly place for a quick lunch in the downtown area on Saturday, maybe somewhere close to Hamilton Place. Just about anything would work but was hoping for something a little different.

Haldimand part 2

Yep that's the one, great patio for some drinks in the summer
well keep in touch if you discover anything new

Haldimand part 2

Hey There,
Where is Floyd's? Work out there and was wondering? Breakfast?
The Beach House in Dover is pretty good too, with a great view

Help in Haldimand

Have to say it's pretty slim pickins around this area. Im from Port Dover/Turkey Point area and haven't found much to brag about either. If you havn't tried Belworth House in Waterford, it's amazing, but bit of a drive from your area. Have a reservation at Twisted Lemon for next week and have heard good things. i'll let ya know!. Sad because there is soo much amazing meats and produce from this area, especially in the summer. Good luck in your search. We mostly have to enjoy great food at home. cheers

Need Help Finding Resto for a Group in The Downtown Core

Looking for a place for a work Christmas dinner for about 16 people. The group is made up of both young and old and both adventurous and boring eaters. So nothing too "exotic". Money is not really an issue, but nothing too fancy as the plan is to be semi-casual. I know this is kinda complicated, but any help would be appreciated. Thanx

Bacon... on the bbq???

iIuse the cheap disposable tinfoil type of pans from the grocery store. Something with a bit of a lip on it to avoid a fire if it gets dripping too much, as I have found sometimes happens with tinfoil. Take it off the heat when done and dispose of when cool. Easy and mess free.

Horse Meat

It's readily available in Quebec, available in may grocery stores and restaurants aswell.
Also a few places in Toronto. I'd say it's sililar to a venison, enjoyed a few carpaccios.

Around the World in 80 Beers

There's a place in Simcoe that has the whole engraved plaque deal for finishing their beer list. I realise it's far from T.O., but just reminded me of the place. It's a pub/Thai place??
