Hamilton, June 3rd

Sunday, May 28th, 2017

Jerome is leading our next walk which will be in Hamilton. We’ll use a similar route to the one we followed last time but with a shorter version of the afternoon section.

Date: Saturday June 3rd.

Meet: 10:15am at Hamilton GO station timed to coincide with the arrival of the GO Bus from Aldershot Station. People coming from Toronto via GO need to catch the 8:43 train from Union Station, then transfer to a bus at Aldershot Station for a short trip into Hamilton. For those of you driving, there are several parking lots within a short walking distance of the Hamilton GO station; Google Maps is your friend! Alternatively, you can park at the Aldershot GO station for free, and get a day pass to Hamilton and back; this saves you the agony of negotiating downtown Hamilton’s many one-way streets!

GO Transit travel options: Google; GO Transit.

The morning route stays close to the GO station for you latecomers! 😉 The lunch stop is also close to the station for anyone who is joining us for only the morning or afternoon routes.

Lunch: Cat ‘n’ Fiddle (to be confirmed)

Post-walk: Augusta’s Winking Judge (to be confirmed)
25 Augusta Street,
905.524.5626
5:00
The pub is about a two minute walk from the GO station.

Riverdale, May 20th

Saturday, May 13th, 2017

Even though I planned this walk, hopefully we’ll have good weather for it 🙂

Meet: 10:00 am at the Tim Hortons at Gerrard and Blackburn (547 Gerrard St East) – yes, the same place we met to start the Focus on Gerrard walk.

Morning route: Head north beside Bridgepoint then across the Don and over to Riverdale Farm. How long we have at the farm depends on our pace. From there we’ll go south on Sumach to Spruce, then over to Parliament. [map]

Lunch: Stout Irish Pub, 221 Carlton (confirmed)

Afternoon: I’ve sketched a route zigzagging up to the Bishop & Belcher, just across from Bloor-Yonge station, but we can improvise.

Focus on Gerrard – 6ix Clicks Collective, March 18th

Friday, March 10th, 2017

An offshoot of TOPW is the 6ix Clicks Collective (Andrew Smith, David Williams, Mary Crandall, Jeff Stewart, Sasha Furlani, Harry Halyk) and we currently have 2 exhibits running for the month of March at the Riverdale Gallery. One is part of the citywide Myseum Intersections festival – “Focus on Gerrard” – portraits and words of people from the part of Gerrard known as Little India. We also have a group show of our own work.

This walk will look at Gerrard Street from Broadview to Coxwell.

10:00AM – meet at the Tim Hortons at 547 Gerrard St. East (just west of Broadview).
We will walk east along Gerrard.
Last year, there were 7 new murals painted around Broadview and Gerrard, depicting wonders of the world.

12:00noon – Lunch at the Lahore Tikka House

1:30pm – The Riverdale Gallery, 1326 Gerrard St. East, 3rd floor.
This is where both of our photo shows are hung. From the gallery we will spread out in small groups to photograph “Little India” … Gerrard St from Greenwood to Coxwell … ending up back at the gallery.
