date day in the city

Saturday the Hubs and I had a full-on impromptu date day (I love those days!). First we met some friends for brunch at The Gladstone and indulged in their yummy breakfast sandwich with a coconut chai latte (yum!). We ventured upstairs to the Come Up to My Room annual alternative design event, but the admission fee was $10 (we thought it would be free) and we're cheapskates so we didn't bother going in.

After running an errand in Leslieville we stopped off for a stroll through the Distillary District (this area always brings me back to our early dating days). Our first stop was SOMA Chocolatemaker where we grabbed two of their famous Mayan Hot Chocolate elixirs to go (to die for!). As we sipped our hot chocolates we poked in to all the little shops and studios and bought this adorable OXO Roomi nightlight for the baby's room.

We finished off the day with a dinner out at the haunted Keg Mansion (thanks to my Aunt Mary's gift card). The best steak dinner and I was hungry for it.

As we wait for the arrival of our little babe I expect we'll have more days like this. What are your favourite date spots in the city?
