Opa!

I hope you all had a great weekend! The weather has turned undeniably steamy here in Toronto, and while I like heat this is just plain old muggy. Our weekend was busy as usual, but fun as always! I got to see some friends who came into town on Saturday night and it was great catching up, and trying a new-restaurant-to-me Wabora - thanks girls.

Yesterday the Mr. and I sauntered over to Toronto's Taste of the Danforth, an annual Greek fest. We wandered, ate, and looked around (there are tons of beautiful houses on the side streets!). I like Greek food and how fresh it tastes, having it on the street at an outdoor festival is even better. Naturally, my mind wanders to its place of origin - I've never been to Greece but it looks so beautiful, and I have heard many good things, so it's definitely on my list.  Enjoy some greek inspiration below...

I love Taste of the Danforth but it was sooooo crazy busy last time I was there. Have they managed to come up with a better solution to crowd control? Awesome photos and I agree it looks like a must-see.

I love taste of the Danforth. Summer is so great in Toronto for all of its festivals, etc (but not the muggy heat right downtown!)

I have to agree with Carol & Lisa....love the Taste of the Danforth, but the crowd control issues, combined with the heat, just sucked the fun out of it for me. Actually fainted one year, waiting in line for water!

I think a trip to Greece would be much nicer and your pictures make me want to go even more!
