      Just talked to one of the principals today and he said they will also have a bakery on site doing fresh breads and take out for lunch...

      I just hope they don't sink back into old Habitats. :)

        Totally new group, none of the old people are involved. They want it to be a place about the food....

          In a nightclub. On Queen West. They also might consider a better name. Vdara is just asking for viagra jokes.

          I seem to recall it being named something else for a very short period of time after Habitat ended, but I can't remember what. Am I crazy?
