The Junction

January 2nd, 2010

We live in a great neighborhood on the edge of the wild west end of Toronto, affectionately and historically called The Junction. Before we moved here we dated the neighborhood, hitting up The Beet, Curry Twist and Cool Hand of a Girl for brunch and generally scoping out the scene. We’ve been living here for a couple of months now and the honeymoon has yet to subside. Away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, but only a short drive away, we find we have mostly everything we need right here.
