New Mexican Restaurant in Aurora - Anyone Been Yet?

Don't waste your time. I can't speak for the food, but the service was so bad we walked out after standing in line for 15 minutes. Mucho Burrito I think is what it's called.

Apple picking + chow-ish meal 2 hours from downtown Toronto?

Apple picking is great in Stouffville on McCowan north of Stouffville Rd, some good restaurants in Unionville, just a little south. Applewood Orchards, good variety, gets really busy.

Beer Can Chicken - How To Get Crispy Skin?

I find that if you first dry the chicken really well, season it and then poke a couple of holes in the skin, the fat will drain out instead of getting trapped under the skin (making it rubbery), you get better results. I also start the grill at a very high temp - 450 - 500 for the first 20 minutes over indirect heat, then lower the temp to about 375 to finish cooking. Also, leave it on the stand to rest for about 15 - 20 minutes. If you take it off too early, the juices will impact the skin texture as well.

Where to find Frozen Cherries? Is this a seasonal thing?

I always get them at Metro in Stouffville and they take orders as well.
