What’s Being Served At The Ex – Cronut Burger, Nutella Fries, Bacon Lasagna.

The Ex is a great excuse to get out and eat food you know you shouldn’t but since it’s only available at the Ex, you simply can’t stop yourself. Bags of Tiny Tom’s donuts. Ice cream sandwiches. Pizza on a stick. So why not step up to the challenge of the Cronut Burger or the Spice Cream Cone? I’ve reviewed all the featured food being served at the 2013 CNE – from the Cronut Burger to Nutella Fries, Panini Gelato to the All-Bacon Canuck Burger. Read it and then make your decisions on what your going to snack on at this year’s Ex.

Kingston Eats

Since I am both “from” Kingston and the editor/publisher of the CheapEats Restaurant Guides, I get asked often where to go in Kingston for good eats cheap.

A Little Palm Pre-view

Last week, I was invited to a preview of the new Palm Pre by Jenn Evans of Sequentia Environics. I tweeted about it, big surprise, and got deluged by questions and requests to talk about my experience. I didn’t realize until I started talking about it that so many of the other previews and demos…

Good Thing It’s Pretty cuz It Sure Ain’t Smart

I was talking about tech toys with Gerry yesterday and we came to the realization that what we want from our tech is that it be exciting, shiny and new for the first couple of days then to quickly become invisible. So cleanly and effortlessly integrated into our life that we don’t even realize how…

No Competition

Yesterday as I was walking home from a wonderful lunch meeting with Mondo discussing life, business and photography I deeked into the LCBO on St. Clair West.  As you should already know, I have my S2 back so I’m taking pictures left, right, and centre, like the photoholic I am.  So, when I saw the ad…

Grilled

Grilled Bored, slightly dispondent and waiting for Weeds to start, we flipped on over to Channel 300 and rented ourselves a movie. We decided against the more obvious and mainstream titles and chose something we'd never heard of before, a little film called Grilled.  Now, this is not high cinema, unless you mean the 420…

QotD: I’m reading (or about to read)…

Vox’s QotD today leaves me questioning – do I really have a “nightstand”?  I certainly have piles upon piles of books beside my bed, in the living room, on my desk, beside my desk, on Gerry’s desk, in a bookshelf or twelve… books-a-plenty my friend. What books are on your nightstand? So, I’ll answer the…
