Toronto with Attitude
January 30, 2010 § 3 Comments
I was at an event recently and met one of the two founders of the Toronto lifestyle blog Lucky Penny. The next morning I dug into the site. Whether you live in the city, or are planning a trip sometime soon, or just want to be entertained by beautiful photographs and witty, informative commentary, check it out.
Each day, Lucky Penny shares her tip for the best, coolest, most delicious bits of Toronto. I find it refreshing to hear something about this city whose most often stated characteristic is that it’s clean. Instead of the commonplace, here are the fun and happening and aesthetically pleasing … where to find the best poutine or steak frites; the delight of cooking lessons at the Calphalon Culinary Center; the visceral joy of a new pair of Michael Kors high, strappy sandals; the satisfaction of ingesting exquisitely made cupcakes at her birthday party while giving to a worthy cause. All delivered in a saucy, not-too-good-girl manner that only the perpetually hip can pull off. There’s even a Lucky Penny nemesis.
Think Daily Candy meets Gossip Girl … a guilty pleasure if ever there was one.
