Toronto, ON, Canada April 16-19, 2015

[April 16-19 2015, Toronto, ON, Canada]

Why Toronto? Just to check the city out. Was in Vancouver, Montreal, Halifax so I figured, why not Toronto? Plus I figured it would be good exercise to go through the airport since I’ll be going to St. John’s, NL the following week :) Here are the pics from that trip. I went to more places than the CN tower, but I took the most pictures there…

CN Tower, Toronto, ON, Canada

Here is the descent video on the elevator in the CN Tower. I am taking a video looking out and this girl is looking inwards and explains that she is taking a video. She said she can’t look out because she was too scared. Of course I mention to her that she is leaning against the door… :)

Key West Food and Wine Fest January 2015

[Jan 28, 2014 – Feb 1, 2015, Key West, FL, US]

I have attended the first Key West Food in January of 2010 and have been to every one so far, this one being the 6th one. I am getting bad with taking pictures (since I have been there every year), so I apologize for the lack of picture taking depth… It was enjoyable, of course! Here are some pics from the event (click on the pic or the link):

Seattle – First Starbucks, Maximilien, then to Starbucks Reserve

[January 16, 2015, Seattle, WA, US]

Okay so I went to Seattle for a science fiction convention… Well, the con was rather blasé… The thing I did that was way superior was to hit downtown Seattle. And go to the original Starbucks (Store #1). The crew at my local Starbucks were frothing at the mouth and wanted me to get “Pike Place Special Reserve Blend” (as opposed to standard “Pike Place Blend” that all the stores carry). So I got a few bags for them and a few of my friends. Original store: Starbucks First Store – this is a major Starbucks FAIL – they didn’t even list the address on this page. Yeah, “Pike Place” in Seattle is a short street, but still, they can give the address!!! (Go to bottom pic and click on that for more pictures.)

So after I got the coffee, I went to my favorite restaurant down there, hidden in back of the Market. I found it last time I was meandering down there in Seattle a few years ago. Anyway, it’s French. With French Staff. And the best French Absinthe :) Food is amazing. The view is amazing. If in Seattle, go there! Make reservations – limited space. Maximilien Restaurant

Lastly, went to the new Starbucks Reserve Roastery on “Pike Street” (not to be confused with “Pike Place”). Wowowow. Cool! Amazing building with amazing coffee, available any way you want. I did the Clover vacuum extracted Sulewesi Pango Pang Iced Coffee. You can tell all the subtle flavors of the coffee, and you need no sugar, no milk, nothing. Go on a weekday, weekends are beyond packed! Starbucks Reserve Roastery

Krewe of Boo Halloween Float, New Orleans, Oct 30, 2014

[Oct 30, 2014 – New Orleans, LA]

Hey!!! I am in New Orleans for Halloween. To kick off the weekend, I boarded the Float for Krewe of Boo. It was cool. Two hours-ish throwing stuff from the float to the gathered people. Then it was party time back at Mardi Gras World to the wee hours of the morning. Here are the pics (click on the pic or the link):

Loft 2 Miami Halloween Party – Oct 24, 2014

[Oct 24, 2014 – Miami, FL]

The condominium association decided to have fun here and there so they put on a Halloween party. It was a week before the “real” Halloween weekend so turnout was pretty good. Here are some pictures from the event. I took the pictures without using a flash because I didn’t want to ruin the ambiance; so the bulk of them have a fuzzy focus, sorry… Click on the pic or link to get to the pictures page:
