Horseshoe Tavern, Pale Boy and the Elastocitizens

September 16th, 2012 | City LivingRecommended ReadsQueen West

Last night I rocked out at The Horseshoe Tavern when one of my clients, Brandon McGibbon, the guitar player/singer of both Pale Boy and the Elastocitizens shared his talents with an enthusiastic grooving crowd. I was blown away by his performance, and the entire band who lit up the stage… Read Full Entry

Sunday Brunch & The Queen West Art Crawl

September 19th, 2011 | City LivingRestaurantsKing West / Niagara / Liberty VillageQueen West

Okay, so I'm not a Cheerio's fan but I thought this a great pic to chat about Sunday brunch. As a realtor, my action-janet-life-on-the-go doesn't always allow me leisurely Sundays to drink Mimosa's and savour waffles with maple syrup and bacon (Hello? Canadian here!). This is because weekends are often booked chock-a-block with appointments unlocking the doors of… Read Full Entry

I really love the new Bosley Real Estate digs located at 1106 Queen West in Beaconsfield Village. For a family run company going strong since 1928, The Bosley's intuitively know how to keep it fresh and stylin'. It's one more reason I continue to enjoy operating the brand under… Read Full Entry
