At the end of May we went to the Toronto Doors Open Event. Close to 150 buildings of architectural, historic, cultural and/or social significance opened their doors to the public. Admission was free. Doors Open Toronto 2011 theme was Photography. We picked a few buildings to go to and lazily looked around, taking photos and learning more about the city in which we live. We can’t wait to see more of these buildings next year.
Our first stop was 401 Richmond Street Gallery and Offices, with a fantastic roof top garden that is not usually open to the public. We started in the garden and made our way down with a stop on each floor meandering through the galleries and having coffee and cake in the cafe on the ground floor.
The next day we met a friend at the Enoch Schoolhouse and nearby St. John The Baptist Evangelical Anglican Church.
Then made our way to the Distillery District for some coffee and snacks at a very groovy cafe. Because there are so many groovy areas and cafes in Toronto. Unfortunately the cafe we went to is so groovy, no photos are allowed.
