Counting Down The Hours to Stage 2 in Toronto

Toronto is moving to Stage 2 tomorrow... indoor malls will be reopening, hair salons can start welcoming back their clients, and we can enjoy dinner and drinks on restaurant patios on these beautiful summer nights. On the eve of the city coming back to life, here are some pics taken throughout the pandemic... a time of uncertainty and struggle, of small business owners showing creativity in the face of extremely difficult times, and people coming together like never before.

Bluestar PPE Store on Queen West

Driving along Queen this week I noticed a brand new PPE store selling face shields and other protective equipment. First brick and mortar store I've seen dedicated to selling face protection items. Sign of the times. It's located in Parkdale Village next to Easy Restaurant, on the south side of Queen. Rosie :)

Tom's Dairy Freeze Reopens With Window Service

Life is far from being back to normal, but seeing a very long (physically distanced) line on a beautiful warm evening at Tom's Dairy Freeze in Etobicoke certainly feels familiar and comforting. Tom's walk up window is open from 11am to 10pm every day, and they are also offering curbside pick up and delivery through their website and Uber Eats. Rosie :)
