    So I am planning a business trip behind the Maple Curtain, and since I'll have some non-meeting time was wondering what I should do.

    Any suggestions?

    If you like shopping you should check out Yorkdale or the Eaton Centre!

    If you are into arts, AGO is a great place, and they offer free admission on Tuesday after 6pm, I think. ROM, on the other hand, is mostly for kids, with their dinosaurs' and animals' exhibit

    You should visit Church street - the gay district - while you are there. Byzantium is great for their drinks menu, and the food there is delicious as well, though a tad expensive. Woody's is everyone's favourite bar; on Thursday, they have the Best Chest competition; and on Friday and Saturday, they have the best ass competition, which is always fun to watch.

    If the weather allows, pack your swimming suit and visit Toronto Island - Hanlan's Point. The optional clothing beach there is always fun, and you can see the skyline of Toronto while heading to the Toronto Island on a ferry boat; it's a great opportunity to take a lot of pretty photos!

    If you are into architecture, another great place to visit is the St. Lawrence Market and the Distillery District. They have a lot of interesting shops there, and the buildings around those areas are fun to look at.

    I am kind of wondering what restaurant options there are. I assume Yelp will help me find something. I have to eat at a restaurant with an actual chef because of food sensitivities. That and I have an unhealthy love for beautiful food.

    I also checked out Casa Loma when I was there (if you're into history & castle architecture)

    Yelp is pretty good but also check out foursquare for tips.

    I don't know your food sensitivities, but here's my list of the don't miss foods in the city:
    Sandwiches is Black Camel (http://blackcamel.ca/about.htm 4 Crescent Rd near Rosedale Subway Station);
    Pho is Pho Hung (http://phohung.ca/ 350 Spadina Ave in Chinatown);
    Korean-Viet fusion is Banh Mi Boys (Spadina & Queen, NW corner);
    Modern Korean is Swish (Wellington & Leader)
    Modern Chinese is Lee (King & Portland)
    First Nations is Keriwa (Queen, Queensway & King)
    Indian is Amaya (Bayview & Eglinton) <- note other locations don't have the best chef
    Sushi is Solo Sushi Bekkan (Yonge & Grosvenor)

    There are so many good restaurants in Toronto; but it does depend on your price range and most of the places I've mentioned above have staff with really good knowledge about what's in the food (except for Pho Hung, but how wrong can you go with rice noodles, vegetables and meats in soup).

    Also as for what to do: as a movie fan I recommend dropping by the Bell Lightbox (King & John) and National Film Board (Richmond & John).

    For dancing, try Fly nightclub (Yonge & Gloucester).

    For bowling, go to the Ballroom (Richmond & John).

    There's so much to do in Toronto, although fewer museums than I'm used to from other cities I've lived in.

    Well plenty of stuff to see here in Toronto and do visit the above mentioned places. Also check out Black Creek pioneer village if you're into history.


    And you can always come say hi to me ! ;)

    Thank you very much for the suggestions - Keriwa looks like a very interesting experience, in particular.

    I once counterprotested him at the Big Game in Berkeley with a sign that read "Fred Phelps Beats His Wife". They tried to have the campus police make me leave, if you can believe it.

    Of course nothing beat another member of our fraternity sneaking onto their side and putting up a sign that said, "God Hates Stanfurd". The applause was thunderous.
