New York & Toronto – Day 6 – April 8th, 2019

This morning was rainy, so I took my time getting ready and had breakfast at the hotel.

They only serve medium sized iced coffee.

I won’t hold that against them.

Too much.

By 10:30 the rain had given way to beautiful skies, so I walked to the convention center.

I arrived at the convention center with about 30 minutes to spare before Mark’s session ended, so I ducked into a Starbucks. It had a nice walkway behind it.

I couldn’t make the whole thing fit into one picture.

We had lunch at Kelly’s Landing with one of Mark’s coworkers, who was also at the conference.

This light fixture hangs above the entrance.

I discovered that the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation is located across the street from  the convention center.

I stopped in the Penguin Shop, a small little shop at the bottom of a hotel.

The very chatty bookseller informed me that it was the only Penguin shop in the world.

I bought this book, by a Canadian author.

I got the tote bag for free.

I met up with Mark when his session ended, and we walked through the convention center towards the subway.

Riding the subway.

Never my favorite thing.

We had dinner at Dirty Bird Chicken and Waffles.

The first picture is mine, the second is Mark’s. We split the fries.

The food was great, but very spicy.

It’s not soda in Toronto, it’s pop.

The Comedy Network has played nothing but The Big Bang Theory since we arrived. If we ever move to Canada and need to bring our parents with us this is how I will convince my father.
