A Toast for Tony …

November 16, 2016


Saturday, Nov 26, 2016 – 2pm-4pm
@ The Local – Live music by Kate Cash
396 Roncesvalles Av.

When he died five years ago, Tony left us memories and smiles … celebrate his life and friendships … join us in recognising a Roncesvalles institution and a unique social media pioneer.

With his trusty Elmo doll at his side, Tony never had more fun than when connecting with children … so, if you can, bring a donation in the form of an Elmo doll or other toy … or contribute some loonies to our Holiday Fund, all for the patients at the Hospital for Sick Children.

Here’s the event listing on Facebook If you want to know more, connect with me at



Where did the flowers go?

A bouquet of flowers

“I’ve got a good story for you. You know The Local, the restaurant next to the old Revue movie house up on Roncesvalles. Well the owner, she’s taken a liking to me, since I’ve had to move from in front of Alternative Grounds. She even invited me in for a drink, and I told her I don’t really drink, and if I had one beer, which is all I’d drink anyway, it wouldn’t help me much. But she and her brother, there really nice to me, feeding me and looking out for me. So when you saw me with that bouquet of flowers yesterday, it was for her.”
