I Can Wonder What I Did with My Night

Last night I trooped through the minus-a-billion-degrees-plus-wind-chill nightmare weather with a friend to Cabbagetown watering-hole the Cobourg. My student budget had a heart attack upon taking in the art-heavy walls (including two beautiful canvasses of impressionist-style ostriches), crystal chandeliers and warm, cushy atmosphere. It then rejoiced after buying a pint of Wellington for under five dollars.

We saw Maritimes songbird Julie Doiron, who is beyond adorable, singing Smokey Robinson's "You Really Got a Hold On Me" impeccably well along with the rest of her lovely set. Equally fun were the chill 20-to-30 year olds that meshed with the place. Julie and the Cobourg both have a fervent fan in me.

When I heard "free concert in cabbagetown" the day before I thought, "dirty, maybe a stabbing, sketchbags." Toronto always has a way of making me feel like an ignorant bastard.
