It gave me a chance to catch the end of the Jets game, while…Continue readingYellow Dog Tavern

A version of this post appears in the February edition of West End Streets newspaper.  In the summer of 2021, I started hearing reports of a new bakery opening in my neighbourhood. It was called Gato, and it was drawing raves. I decided to go and give it a try. Taking a walk down the street, I got to Gato, and found that it was closed. A few days later I checked the hours before…Continue readingGato Bakeshop – 819 Sargent Avenue
