Marion BS: Ozzie Catter coming to Ontario (81* d) RE: BS: Ozzie catter seeks info on Ontario 13 Mar 07


Doug Richards? Never heard of him.

That's great that you've been given the correct pronunciation of Toronto. I've encountered some out-of-towners that have acquired the mystifying idea that we call it "Tronna." While "Tronno" is certainly right on, you can diversify by using "the GTA" (Toronto plus suburbs), or "TO" (say the letters, not "too").

There are two main drags in East York with a lively pedestrian scene. One is Queen St. East, AKA "The Beaches", which was mentioned above - (Queen West, while also a fun area, is on the other side of Yonge St. AKA "Centre of the Universe").

However, the strip I know better is the Danforth AKA "Greektown" - a little farther north and west. There is a contra dance here two or three times a month: copy and paste this for their website (for some reason it isn't working as a link).

If you're interested in hearing or participating in a Celtic tune session, you could come to Dora Keogh's pub in Greektown on a Thursday or Sunday.

And again, I'd recommend the song circle every Friday night - mudatters Black Walnut and Balladeer are regulars there, and it's also the most likely place that you'll find me.

PS I hope you make it to Niagara Falls - the town is horrid, but the falls are great.
