Early, Fruitful Start to da weekend baby!
Two biggie thumbs up to Yul @ Barristers in the Hilton, the man is THE hotel bartender in Toronto. Last week when we went by, Yul was on a cruise[the Queen Mary, the nerve!], so Anil, formerly of Fez, was our drink slingah; a most enjoyable sloppy seconds if I say so mi'self.
Had some good chats w/ some musician types-my fave subcast of homosapien, part of the Barristers crowd last night. The piano man of the evening, who we may catch @ Prego in Yorkville on Saturday, and his pal who is a drummer and has performed for the likes of Ron Sexsmith and Bryan Adams. Originally from Vancouver, he is in town to be part of the performer list for the upcoming CBC TV hockey series that Analisa is working on. Note to self, I must check in with her...
All in all a good night, but sad to see a chap who was either too tired or too inebriated get chucked out of Barristers though, he kept putting his feet, sans shoes on the bar - wtf??
Ok - time to check in w/ the local news, according to yesterday's budget, it looks like there is going to be a rate hike on the ttc, sigh...

So at the moment, I am listening to a repeat of Steve Wright Sunday Love Songs on BBC 2 and am about to primp for a bbpa networking thingie, preceded by a pop in at the bank.
Today, I missed a chance to hang out w/ my pal Jaynerator who is in town from Amsterdam, Jack is sick, poor thing!
Did lots of job search stuff which is good but looking fwd. to clinky drinkies this evening...
