Hackathon Toronto, Apr 28, 2007
Hacker Widows: Revision 9

General tourism links:

Eat

Kensington Market

Historically a working-class immigrant neighbourhood, the Market packs all things international and offbeat into a handful of tiny city blocks. Cheese from Eastern Europe, Chinese vegetables, antiques, surplus goods, anarchist literature, and anything that could be remotely considered 'eclectic' can be found here, and cheaply to boot. All kinds of food establishments -- cafes, ethnic restaurants, street vendors -- proliferate here as well.

About 800m from the Hackathon location. Start out going west on Richmond; turn right to head north on Spadina. Go left on Dundas, then a right on Kensington will take you right into the middle of the Market. (directions)

Baldwin Village

The east end of Baldwin Street (between Henry and McCaul) is jam-packed with funky restaurants in all price ranges. The walk from the Hackathon location is about 1000m. (directions)

There are many good choices here, but my personal favourite is Konnichi-wa, a small homestyle Japanese place. Great katsudon can be had here; the noodle dishes are supposed to be good as well. Inexpensive; most plates run $6-8.

Attractions

CN Tower

Little needs to be said about the CN Tower. It's about 1200m southeast of the Hackathon location. (directions) Look for the tower and head towards it. =)

Culture

...or, as everyone calls it, 'the AGO'. Hands down the best art gallery in Canada and one of the best in North America. http://www.ago.net/

317 Dundas Street West; corner of Dundas and Beverley, about 600m north of the Hackathon location.
