This week we have Greg and Dale, two of our wonderful neighbours and Forsythia Festival volunteers, giving their $0.02 on the neighbourhood.

Best place in Cabbagetown for a bite to eat …
I love so many places to eat but our favourite is Thai Room. There is an avocado chicken that is to die for!

Cabbagetown needs …
Greg says – Funnel Cake
Dale says – smoothie place

Favourite block …
Nasmith is the best street in Cabbagetown! I may be biased but I have never experienced such a close knit community. The whole street hangs out together for our annual street party and our ‘movie in the alley’. I love coming home and finding 8 kids from all over the neighbourhood with their parents and caregivers hanging out in our back yard or on the sidewalk!

Best public space …
Riverdale Park West has such a variety of things to do and since we have a dog we are there at least once a day.

Favourite store …
Labour of Love is terrific for a small hostess gift or cheeky birthday card. Recently I stopped in and bought a pair of sunglasses that plants a tree for every pair sold. Win win.

Cabbagetown pet peeve …
Not keen on those trying to cut some time off their commute by driving through during rush hour. There are lots of kids and pets in the area and I would like to see less traffic and certainly slower speeds.

Cabbagetown’s best kept secret …
The Forsythia Festival! It’s such a great community event but smaller and more intimate than the Cabbagetown festival. It’s a great way to connect to all our neighbours after a cold winter.

Best reason to join the Cabbagetown Residents Association (CRA) …
It’s the best way to keep up on all the great things happening in the community!
