This year, I've managed to go sample some winterlicious menus: Monsoon and Reds Bistro.

I will say that I liked Reds Bistro better. Loster/sweet potato bisque with a touch of spice. Rainbow trout with a crispy skin and moist flesh. Tangy mango sorbet and lemon tart.

Magic in my mouth! Plus, it was pretty nice that I didn't have to pay for it. I also had a really nice glass of Cave Springs Special Reserve Chardonnay.

(I wish I had more money so that I could eat like this more often. Sigh.) Anyway, on with the story...

After this awesome meal, we went up to the George Weston Recital Hall in North York to see Theodore Bikel do some yiddish tunes. I loved it!

So who's this Theo guy? ONLY Worf's adoptive dad, Sergey Rozhenko!

And he sings and stuff. Aside from the Yiddish, Hebrew, Russion and French stuff, he also did some Fiddler on the Roof and a sing-along Edelweiss.

A really nice night. I need to get to more cultural events around the city. I really wanted to take in some of the Winter City shows, but I'm going to be super busy this week. I have something planned for each night of the week until I take off on vacation on Friday. Rockies, here I come!
