I will be in Toronto over the next week for work, and I want to make the most of any spare time I have. Are there any interesting events going on? Where should I go to get some good photos? [more inside]

Living in Toronto: Anyone here ever lived around Dupont and Lansdowne? During the 80s and 90s it wasn't the nicest place to live. Has that changed? [more inside]

My wife is hosting a baby shower for a mother-to-be that wants 50 people to be invited (she's even providing the list). But I have heard that here in Toronto, you need to have a permit for private gatherings of more than 25 where alcohol will be served. We can't find any detailed information on this though.
Anyone know where to look, or know the answer?

I need to get a glamour shot done ASAP for a friend. Is there a place in Toronto (downtown preferably but I don't mind going up to the suburbs) where I can get one done quickly and relatively cheaply? A google search has revealed nada so far.

On my street (and others, here in Toronto) workers have cut large circular pieces out of the sidewalk about every 10 feet or so. For several days, the big wheels of cement sat nearby, and the holes were covered up with metal lids. Now the pieces are back in the sidewalk, all patched up with cement filling the gaps. So... what the heck was being done there?

We are going to be driving from Boston to Toronto on a Thursday night and Friday with our five kids (ages 3 to 16). We want to stop somewhere half-way to sleep--ideally a hotel that is not too pricey but still decent and has an indoor pool. Perhaps a good breakfast, or just a decent breakfast. Where should we stay? And in general, if you needed to find a hotel en route from A to B, how would you do that (the second question is WAY less important than the first)?

Toronto MeFites: Tell me everything and anything about Little Italy / College & Grace. I'm considering moving there. What about it sucks/rocks? Best places to shop/hang/eat/chill/ whatever. How much are tomatoes? Bananas? Other food staples? Not familiar with Little Italy? How about High Park/BWV; Kensington; Dufferin and Keele? Dunno those areas? Where should I abslolutely positively avoid? [more inside]

I take a lot of short business trips and I don't really like hotels that much. I would prefer to stay in an apartment. Does anyone know of a nationwide group which rents apartments for just a few days? Failing that, such a group in Chicago or Toronto would be great. In Montreal I found a hotel that had some apartments in a building around the corner, and that was a pretty good solution.

I have business in Toronto next week and I'd like to avoid staying in a big shiny Hya-Marri-Omni. A location within walking distance to 33 Villiers Street (M5A 1A9) is a definite plus but not necessary. Price range: ca. 200 USD per night.

Moving to Toronto-filter. I'm trying to decide between Midtown, Yonge and Eglinton, Yonge and St. Clair; or something more in the West end, like Queen and Dufferin, King and Dufferin, etc. If any Mefites live in the area, what are your experiences? How livable is the West end, really? [more inside]

I'm looking for a wardriving map of downtown Toronto that was posted online a year or two ago. It had wireless networks marked in three colours: encrypted, unencrypted, and out-of-the-box. I had a copy on my hard drive, but I think I've lost it. Does anyone know where I can find it?

I recently rekindled my love affair with Austrian Mozartkugeln (particularly the "Hofbauer Confiserie Mozartkugeln im Milch-Schokolade"). I know this is a long shot, but does anyone have any idea where I can get some in Toronto? Or have it shipped to me from somewhere other than Austria? [more inside]
