Leonard Cohen: Another Black Star Falls

I’ve been writing articles for the lifestyle magazine my work puts out for a while now, and most of these articles have been softball topics, mostly food guides along with the occasional special interest article about travel or gadgets. But this winter I was asked to take on two much more weighty subjects: Leonard Cohen’s recent passing and the fact that it came just after he had released a new album.

La Crème de la Crème Glacée

The minute I started writing food-related articles, it was only a matter of time before I wrote about ice cream. I have a reputation for my fondness of ice cream, to the point that I was on almost a first-name basis with the lovely lady who drove the soft serve truck in my neighborhood.

From the Let’s Eat Good Project

More than a year ago, some friends and I figured out that we could create a collaborative Google map, in that more than one person can view and make markers on the same map, and we use our common map for a noble purpose: to discover the best places to eat in the Greater Toronto Area.  The name of this map is “Let’s Eat Good” and it wasn’t long before we had around 20 to 30 places marked down for future adventures, and these places were not only literally all over the map in terms of geography, but also in price and cuisine.
