ISO something fabulous in the Greater Toronto Area

prima Nov 16, 2011 08:46 AM

Anyone have any suggestions? I realized this morning I haven't had anything fabulous in a long time, apart from maybe the laffa in my Dr. Laffa shawarma.

Where do you find your fabulous in the GTA?

Not looking for gluten-free, romantic, trendy, or half-decent. Only fabulous.

      Is it always fabulous? I told my cousin and his wife that we would take them there as a wedding present, but I have not arranged it yet.

        The only unfabulous part is fighting the traffic.

          or driving back after drinking some wine there. It means I'll only be able to have one or two glasses.

              In theory - yes.

              BUT not a single taxi at GO train (Burlington) last time I tried that! (and the train was 20 minutes late)

                Oh. I just walked. 2.5km each way. 30 minutes approx. each way.
                Not long for me but I can see how that could turn off some people.

                  That's OK in the summer, but I'm not going to do it in November or December after eating there. I'd rather just have one drink and drive there and back. It takes almost as long to get to the GO train (union station) as it takes to drive to Burlington.
