Happy Easter, it looks like Patio Season is in Full Bloom

By IanIn standard22nd April, 2011

The good weather is here and people are dressing in more colourful and bright clothing. A walk along Queen’s Quay is just as colourful as walking along Queen Street East. As I walked around Harbourfront at lunch Thursday, I noticed several people not wearing jackets. As I walked, I too felt that I should have left my jacket back at my downtown Toronto office space.

Today while most of my friends are enjoying the first day of the long weekend, I was working at the executive suites Toronto where I have my office for rent Toronto. As I looked out the office window of the 18th floor of the Toronto Star building, I noticed that there were a lot of people walking and riding bicycles along the harbour. I convinced myself that taking a thirty  minute break would be ok.

Since the cafeteria was closed for the Easter Weekend, I walked over to the Harbourfront Centre to get some chip wagon chips. I decided to take them back to my office space Toronto and eat them at my desk. As I walked through the lobby of the building the security guard mentioned he could smell the French fries and sausage as soon as I walked through the door. The Italian sausage I could understand him smelling, but the French fries? He said he could smell the malt vinegar I had on them. I told him that I may be stopping into the office on Saturday to finish some stuff up, so I would go the chip wagon before I came in and get him some fries too.

Saturday should prove to be very busy down along Queens Quay, so I will probably have to park my car at my Toronto office space and walk over to the chip wagon again.

Sunday is the only day that I will get to relax and enjoy the weekend, but I am not sure how relaxing finding parking and fighting the crowds along Queen Street East for the Beach Easter Parade. I promised I would take my girlfriend to the parade, as she had never been to this parade before. I think we will head down early and find a seat on a raised patio and enjoy brunch as the parade marches by.
