Toronto Between 15-18 Feb 2008

Unexpected (but certainly not unwelcome) trip and wondered what the best source of information as to goings-on might be either on-line or in print. Arts, museums, etc.,

Thanks in advance.

P.S. Surely you'll want to meet some Toronto Fodorites?

If you are a music fan, you might want to check out this very useful resource: www.thewholenote.com

They have listings for every taste: from classical concerts to hip-hop, folk, jazz and salsa!

Dukey! Welcome to my city!

Check out www.nowtoronto.com -- it's a great little arts and entertainment newspaper. It's online and you can pick it up free at just about any restaurant or street corner. It comes out on Thursdays.

We'll be more help if you can tell us when you're coming, for how long, and whereabouts you're staying.

What you like to eat wouldn't hurt either.

Oops, just noticed the thread title. So you'll be here from Feb 15 to 18.

You probably should visit the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) and see the new addition. They call it the Crystal. Some call it the aluminum siding. There's a good dinosaur show there now and it's right across the street from the Ceramics Museum which is more interesting than it sounds.

Thanks to all for the great replies.
Yes, I have warm boots and sure I'd love to meet up with some other Fodorites.

To answer the other questions: I got a "couldn't refuse" room deal at the Marriott Eaton Centre (last times I was either at the Intercontinental-Yorkville or the one downtown near Union Station).

Food? Did you say FOOD???? Just about anything that isn't still moving or looking at me in the eye!

Does this mean there will be a mini GTG? Count me in!

I'm game for one, cold or not. I'll even buy the first round of drinks.

Me, too, if I can.

Dukey, do you have plans for any evening?

Two things...just got off the phone with a friend in Toronto...I'll have dinner with her and her mother one night but I can make that happen revolving around any possible meet-up with Fodorites so I'm wide open.

I just posted on the driving from Buffalo thread and it looks as if Tri-Dude is going to be in town the same weekend.

regardless, let's DO it!

I have to look at my calendar tomorrow. It's not that I'm such a social butterfly -- I just have no memory.

Are you leaving on Monday the 18th or staying over that night?

OK. I could have done Monday night for sure but maybe I can still join up over the weekend.

Great city, lots to do. Toronto.com is a good site but so is toronto.ca (city of toronto's official site). I'd recommend you see Queen Street, Yonge Street and Kensington Market--something a little off the "tourist agenda".

I'm good any evening. So let's see what the calendar looks like for the others.

Unfortunately my weekend is wrapped up with plans. I'm sure a mini GTG would be fun. I'll keep an eye out for where it will be and maybe I can sneak over.

Thur or Friday best for me, possibly Saturday - was thinking of going to Ottawa for last weekend of Winterlude but that idea's not carved in stone.
