We started our afternoon with a movie at the Paramount downtown ... Children of Men with Clive Owen and Julianne Moore.
Set in 2027, when no child has been born for 18 years and science is at loss to explain the reason, African and East European societies collapse and their dwindling populations migrate to England and other wealthy nations. In a climate of nationalistic violence, a London peace activist turned bureaucrat, Theo Faron, joins forces with his revolutionary ex-wife, Julian, in order to save mankind by protecting a woman who has mysteriously became pregnant.
A different kind of movie than what I usually go to see but it was Gord's turn to pick as I picked yesterday's. It was a good movie though I found it very depressing.
After the movie, we stopped in Jeremiah's Bullfrog for a drink. We'd seen it recently on Restaurant Makeover and wanted to see what it looked like now. The bartender was very stressed because the beer taps weren't working and the place smelled funny ... like a kitty litter box.
We walked through the Eaton Centre, Toronto's downtown mall, and up Yonge Street a bit to see how many people were out and about looking for Boxing Day sales. There were tons of people walking the street and in the stores, even lined up outside stores.
We had supper at St. Louis down by the Rogers' Centre ... who can resist their wing night?
