we went downtown and checked in to the royal york hotel and dropped off our backpacks and headed over to Wayne Gretzky’s for lunch. kids never been and chantal has not expanded her food selection and she settled in with the grilled cheese that was really good. noah and myself picked up “the great one” burger which was really good with a double patty. seventy four bones later we hit the hotel to check out the pool which was warm, narrow and long. a little hot tubing. we were pretty full so we decided we would eat after the movie.
i picked up some tickets for the movie “Free Solo” which was up on bloor. hit this blog post for more about the movie. the plan was to go there and eat after and hit snakes and lattes and play games into the night. the movie was awesome and after we went down the street to starbucks and filled up on sweet foamy goodness.
snakes and lattes in the annex was packed with a 3 hour wait. so we hit the google and found another boardgame cafe south on dundas west. we called and they held a table for us and we got there to play some new games and a little cockroach poker.
my goodness… almost 1am. time to grab a taxi and get back to the hotel. we still have a round of honest answers to record. at the hotel we each wrote our 7 questions on some hotel stationary and we set up my phone to record us in bed answering the entire 21 questions. we shot 38 minutes of footage that i knocked down to 9 minutes that you can watch on YouTube. I had to cut out some questions to protect the kids and me with some of our answers.
