little menu

you'd think if this cafe was going to be called "The Best Little Menu" that they would post the menu outside. but they didn't and it was closed, so I can't confirm if it really was the best. or little.

At first I thought it would be grand if modern 'washers' were done in six minutes! 
Then I thought, maybe this means each item in six minutes??

Found in an old school being used as a polling station
It was a bit blurry ... and one cannot really take pictures at a polling station,
so I used Pencil Sketch to highlight the FONT.

personally, when this store first opened about a year or so ago, all I could think of was Coronation Street.

now that I look at this sign more closely, last week's sign was probably the 1934 road map.

Sometimes you need to take a photo of a sign before it disappears. (though in this case, the abandonned Regal Constellation Hotel in Toronto may sit decaying a long while.)

grab yourself one


The weather is getting warmer up here in the northern half of the planet, time to think of patios ... 
and cold ones.
In Ontario, The Beer Store used to be called Brewers Retail, but it was thought too many tourists may not know what that meant, so it was dumbed down to a simpler name, 
one that most people probably called it anyway.
