Bayview Village's new Italian eatery: Parcheggio

Bayview and Sheppard, a neighbourhood conveniently close to the 401 and Bayview Station, for so long was in dire need of more dining destinations. Enter Oliver & Bonacini Hospitality with the aptly-named Parcheggio (Italian for parking lot), where the homemade pasta is fresh, the negronis are flowing, and the magic unfolds in Bayview Village Shopping Centre's south parking lot.

Back Cover Copy

I write marketing and back cover copy for Novalis publishing's English books. Since I do not have a Catholic background, I have had to use my research skills and learn a lot of background information to ensure that my writing was appropriate for the topic.

Where
Enjoy Fresh Lobster at Ibs.

LOBSTER LOVERS WON'T WANT FOR REASONABLY-PRICED OPTIONS AT LBS. Feast on fresh lobster at lbs. (The name, which stands for "Lobster," "Burger," and "Salad" is pronounced "pounds"). The short menu has four feature items at only $22 each: the 1.25 lbs. lobster, lobster roll, a burger topped with aged cheddar and bacon, and a lobster salad.

Where
Go Team, Go! Toronto's Top Sports Bars

Root for your favourite players in style as you fuel up, celebrate or unwind at one of these fine establishments. Open since 1949, Duffy's Tavern is the longest operating bar in Bloordale and the fifth oldest bar in Toronto. This local favourite has pool and foosball tables, a great selection of craft beers and spirits, and live music nightly.

Where
The Bloor Street Culture Corridor

THE STRETCH OF BLOOR STREET BORDERED BY BATHURST STREET AND BAY STREET HAS BEEN DUBBED THE "BLOOR STREET CULTURE CORRIDOR." IT TAKES ABOUT 30 MINUTES TO WALK FROM ONE END TO ANOTHER, BUT THERE'S A WEALTH OF PROGRAMS EXHIBITS, RESOURCES, AND PERFORMANCES TO DISCOVER.

First Look: Beauty Barbecue opens in North York

Like many residents living near Bayview and Sheppard, I've been keeping a close eye on Beauty Barbecue and Smokehouse. Over the last month or so, when walking across the parking lot at Bayview Village Shopping Centre, I'd occasionally catch a whiff of something smokey and delicious and I'd hope that the opening date would be soon.
