Against the Grain Urban Tavern, Toronto, ON

To celebrate Canada Day, Gord and I headed to Against the Grain Urban Tavern (south of Jarvis/Queens Quay E). It just open about a month again.

It was quite busy. We sat on a couch on the patio.

Here's Gord.

Here are me and Gord.

It was hot and sunny ... my cold draft tasted good!

As a snack, we ordered the Baja Roasted Chicken Nachos (melted Cheddar and Jack cheeses, bell peppers and red onions on a bed of crispy tortilla chips, served with salsa sauce, fresh avocado relish and chilli scented sour cream) which was good ... the chicken was spicy and and I could taste limes.

Our server, Natasha, took good care of us. There were lots of servers taking care of the patio and all seemed friendly.

It's amazing how much that area has changed. There is a boardwalk now along the water.

Sugar Beach is next door and it was a popular spot ... no beach, just sand.

We walked westward to Harbourfront ... another popular spot today.

A fun way to spend Canada Day!

We went down to Sunnyside. Was a lovely day, but not that much going on there.
