New York & Toronto – Day 5 – April 7th, 2019

Some pictures taken around Toronto and at the Toronto Convention Center.

My first stop of the day was at !ndigo, which is Canada’s answer to Barnes and Noble.

I bought these books and a Starbucks coffee.

Louise Penny is a Canadian author.

Pro tip: You can get to the Starbucks from inside Indigo, but it is not a part of the store. If you take your unpaid books to the Starbucks counter and try to pay for everything there, the cashier will give you a surprised look and ask you to return to the store and pay for the books first.

Who knew.

After narrowly escaping Canadian prison, I met up with Mark and we ate lunch at Poutini’s House of Poutine.

%EohRowgQQejjU592hROWQPoutine, a traditional Canadian cuisine that originated in Quebec, is fries with gravy and cheese curds. The serving on the left has bacon, chives, and sour cream. The serving on the right has smoked meat.

Both were made with gluten-free gravy.

(vegan gravy was also available)

Both were delicious.

More proof that everything is in English and French.

Afterwards, we walked down the street to Flying Books, a very tiny bookstore.

Then, after a quick nap at the hotel, we walked around the nearby LGBT neighborhood.

In case you wondered what Canadian money looks like.
