Saturday, September 22nd, 2012

Thanks to Vicki for planning these walks.

Date: Saturday September 29th, and again on Sunday 30th.

Saturday night is Nuit Blanche and Sunday is Pedestrian Sundays Kensington, so both will be short days.

Meet: 12:00pm (noon!) for lunch; upstairs at Kim Moon Bakery – 438 Dundas St W (North side – east of Spadina – west of Beverley). [map]

Saturday Afternoon: Grange/Chinatown/Kensington exploration

Sunday Afternoon: Pedestrian Sunday’s Kensington – lots to see, so those who know the area can walk freely and those who don’t know the area very well are welcome to stick with Vicki.

Post-walk: 6:00pm for dinner at The Burger Bar, 319 Augusta Avenue, south of College.

Hashtag: please use “TOPW:KCDS”
