Stay The Fuck Home Support Local Bars, Restaurants and Small Businesses Edition

When we are finally at the end of this Twilight Zone episode, I am going out as much as I can and I am going to be supporting all of my favourite restaurants, bars and small businesses. I live in the west end of Toronto and the list are my favs. I highly recommend you get out to yours as well. If any of your fav bars and restaurants are offering take out, please order from them and often. It is helping them survive!

Apiecalypse Now Best pizza in the city! http://www.apiecalypsenow.com

Bloomers Every once in a while I will venture out of the Junction for my coffeeshop writing and go to Bloomers for writing and lunch!

Disgraceland Punk rock and delicious, greasy comfort food!!! I’m really missing the Poutine Supreme right now!

D&Y Sushi This place is amazing and the staff are gems. We’ve had many family dinners there and they go out of their way for us. My father-in-law is in a wheelchair and my mother-in-law uses a walker. They make sure we are comfortable and my in-laws are served first.

Fabric stores on Queen Street! Not even kidding here. The second I’m out of isolation, I’m coming at you. I need fabric and all of the notions. By the time we are out of this, I will have sewn through my stash.

FullStop Another coffeeshop writing haunt for me.

Glory Hole Donuts Ashley and her team and wonderful and their donuts delish! They even have vegan options! I go to the Parkdale location, but they also have a location in the east end.

Hannah’s I spend a lot of time coffeeshop writing here. I really, really miss coffeeshop writing. I have extra love for this coffeeshop because it is right across from High Park. When I need a break from my laptop, I can stare out into the beauty.

Machino Donuts These are the best vegan donuts in Toronto! Sooooooooooo goooooood! They are open for take-out!

Micro Cinema Toonie Tuesday, Squishy Freak Frolic Film Nite, Low Life Cinema, Rad & Bad Cinema, plus so many more and of course running our own Killer B Cinema.

Music Venues! There will be no excuses. I need to get my rockabilly, surf music fix! Music venues such as The Baby G, The Dakota, The Piston, The Horseshoe, See-Scape and so, so many more are going to need you to get out, buy several drinks and dance!

See-Scape This is one of our absolutely favourite places. We host Killer B Cinema there and everyone who works there are truly amazing. They made us feel at home right away. They are open for take-out right now. Please make sure you order from them.

The Shameful Tiki Room Not only am I going to get my Tiki on as soon as this is over, I’m going to have a Tiki dress made and ready to go! I. Cannot. Wait! https://shamefultikiroom.com

Skyline When you walk into the Skyline, you feel like you’ve walked into a restaurant from the 1940s/50. It is a beautiful and fun place to go for lunch or dinner. When we go to The Revue for a silent or classic movie, we always head over to Parkdale for a meal at Skyline. It always completes our night out. https://www.facebook.com/Skyline-Restaurant-121249527918931/

The Revue We have spent many a Sunday here for the Silent Revue, Designing The Movies, and The Toronto Silent Film Festival. We are really missing our time there. We will be first in line when they reopen.

Killer B Cinema presents: Zuma: Lord of The Snakes

Micro Cinema

Micro Cinema? What the heck is Micro Cinema you ask? It’s a term coined by a friend of ours, Greg Woods. Greg and three of his colleagues run a Film Noir movie night called Toronto Film Noir Syndicate. During a conversation we were having about movie nights held in pubs and Rep Theatres here in Toronto, he cleverly came up with the term to describe what we do!

My husband and I run a monthly b-movie night at See-Scape on the first Friday of every month called Killer B Cinema. We are one of several fun Micro Cinema events happening in Toronto. Our events are inexpensive and a lot of fun. You get to see movies that you may otherwise not see, unless you are already into b-movies. Even if you are, it’s a lot more fun to see the movie on a larger screen and in a room full of like-minded people!
