so it starts to get really cool here finally…not that it wasn’t cool so far, but yesterday the night life session started for me
After having a really nice dinner with Rick and Heiko in the “Jack Astors” Sportsbar I dressed up for Toronto nightlife yeaaahh
After one week of finding out where the cool places are I made my way up to Richmond Street around ten o’clock.
It was true..there was one club next to the other. But all these clubs looked really posh and upscale, so I didn’t feel like going there alone. So I just entered a small english pub and started the night with a Guiness and an event magazin.
After that I just walked 2 times around the blocks just to get an impression about all the clubs. Fortunatelly I also went to a smaller street and finally I have found the “Horseshoe Tavern” – a real life music club. That made my day I got in and I realized that there were three bands playing this night, and I just missed the first. I paid 12 dollars which was ok for the quality.
The second band the “Matadors” (the first for me) was really cool. It was rockn roll pure and and they had even a skelleton who/which was singing a song and talking shit the people there were also really nice…I just felt comfortable.
The last band the “Fleshtones” seemed to be really popular in this area and already exist since at least 1980.
They were really good and it was rock’n roll “voll in die Fresse” 2 hours non stop. At the end I bought a CD of the “Matadors” because I liked them better. When I wanted to go home I met Elyssa, Brickie and Lia, three girls from Vancouver. It was funny because they were talking about weed behind me, so I just had to turn around …. That’s cool, because now I have a party to go tonight
Today I got up at nine in the morning and realized that it was a brilliant day. I had some breakfast and made my way up to the CN tower (click here for satelite map), the highest viewing plattform ever build by human beeings. The view was amazing and by chance I met Heiko who had the same plan as me and was still sitting in the tower restaurant.
There’s nothing more to say, so I just let the pictures talk, which are in a bigger version in the gallery.
