Images From The City: TIFF 2016

Ruth Wilson and Bob Balaban took the stage with the cast of the "The Pretty Thing That Lives in the House" after the film's debut at The Bloor Hot Docs Cinema during TIFF 2016. Director Oz Perkins (son of Anthony Perkins) is pictured on the right, fielding questions from the packed house during the Q&A led by TIFF programmer Colin Geddes. It was a perfect TIFF Vanguard film; weird and puzzling and really, really creepy.

Balzac's Coffee Roasters

Whenever we visit the Distillery District our first stop is Balzac's. It's one of my favourite spots to get a coffee. I love walking into their cafes in both the Distillery and Liberty Village; the amazing smell of their delicious roasts is like a huge coffee hug. I discovered Balzac's a few years ago when I saw this tweet from my favourite author:

I love Margaret Atwood, I love Balzac's coffee, and I like most birds, so a trip to re-stock the coffee canister was in order. The Atwood Blend is a mild amber roast with cocoa and caramel loveliness, and it supports the Pelee Island Bird Observatory. Margaret Atwood helped create the blend to raise awareness for this not-for-profit organization. A pound is $17 and you can get it at any of Balzac's locations. Rosie :)
