Images From The City | Runnymede Theatre Shoppers Drug Mart

When Shoppers moved into the historic Runnymede Theatre last year after Indigo vacated, I was disappointed because I had so many nice memories of seeing movies at the Runny and I was more okay with it being reincarnated as a bookstore than a drugstore. It is clear the owner of this Shoppers felt pressure to do the space justice. The fact that it used to be a movie theatre (built in 1927) is even more showcased now. I like the montage of vintage photos projected on the screen while you shop. On Bloor at Runnymede, on the south side.

Images From The City: Dîner en Blanc 2012

Toronto's first annual Dîner en Blanc took place on Thursday night. We now join Paris, New York, Barcelona and other amazing cities around the world as hosts of this chic pop-up picnic. Everyone dresses in white and dines at a secret spot in the city. The location is only revealed the night of the event when you are brought there by your host. This year the venue was the grounds of Fort York.

Thanks Parteeee GG for this fabulous picture from what looks like a fabulous white night. If you want to dine in white next year, you have to get on the waiting list. (You don't just show up to a foodie flashmob, it requires planning.) Visit the Toronto Dîner en Blanc website to learn more. And if you have an image from the city you'd like to see on the Scoop, send it to rosie@mytorontoscoop.com. Rosie :)

Images From The City: Eight Teams, Eight Beers

There is Euro 2012 fever around here. The beer drinker in the house has managed to procure a beer to represent each of the teams remaining in the tournament. I have never heard of Mythos or Super Bock but I'm guessing the best of the bunch is Peroni. As a matter of fact, if there happened to be a competition between all eight of these beverages, I would say that the Peroni, from ITALY, would beat the rest of them easily.
