Niagara Falls was, well what I expected. It is beautiful and awe-inspiring, but unless you are a painter, photographer or some other visual-fetishist then it really just looking at the thing and taking note for a few pregnant pause moments and then moving on. The area around the falls is a lot like the boardwalks on the Jersey, Delaware and Maryland shores, rife with air brushed shirts, weird little figurines with “Niagara Falls” emblazoned on them, bong shoppes, restaurants, hotels and other assorted things that make up de facto modern circus midways.
Today we go to Springroll. It’s a great restaurant in Toronto that I’m excited to be going back to. Tomorrow morning we head to Boom! Breakfast Company. They feature blueberry pancakes topped with french vanilla ice cream. Yum! After eating breakfast we’ll be heading up to the Northern Ontario compound.
Should be fun.

I was reading up on healthy eating and an article on Yahoo!’s front page fit the bill. I read the well crafted article and noticed it was written by a lady named Sarah Fuss. That sounded familiar. Sarah. Sarah Fuss. Fuss. I think I know that name. I read her Yahoo! bio and saw her picture and was sure I had met her. Upon reading the bio I discovered she used to sling plates at the Northstar restaurant in Columbus. The Northstar is a bistro where casual organic meats, vegetarianism and hipsters collide. It’s not for the non-adventurous eater nor a person with light pockets, but the food does pack a hell of a flavor. My friend, and brief love interest, Kae Denino, author of “Glow” used to cook there. I’m not sure if she introduced me to Ms. Fuss or we simply chatted while I downed their amazing meatloaf, but it is nice to see a person who slaved away in Columbus get their just rewards.
