Enjoy an afternoon of fresh sushi and sunshine

Kuni Sushi Ya is one of my favourite sushi restaurants. The food is fresh, simply prepared, and mouth-wateringly delicious.


My sushi feast at Kuni Sushi Ya was featured on the Gastropost section of The National Post.

There’s nothing better than enjoying a fresh dish while sitting on the patio with the summer sunshine coming through the overhanging branches.

It’s situated on a quaint street in Baldwin Village. Baldwin Street in Baldwin Village. Easy, right? The servers are nice and accommodating. I’ve been there a handful of times, and I’ve been served by the same two friendly people.

A word of advice: If you’re getting the all-you-can-eat, which I would recommend, don’t wear high-waisted shorts, you’ll be wishing you had more belly room. I would also recommend bringing something to read. I like to hit up a nearby park afterwards to let my belly breathe.

An all-you-can-eat feast with tea and tip will cost you around $18. Well worth it for a lovely Saturday or Sunday lunch.

Let’s do something for free dollars

If you’re like me, you’re probably trying to save a bunch of money. We all have to pay rent and buy groceries. Such a bother. So I try my best to pinch my pennies whenever I can. I still love going to galleries and museums, but I don’t have the $20 or more to spare for admission.

But lo and behold, I found something to do for free dollars! The Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) has free admission on Wednesday nights after 6 pm. The gallery closes at 8:30 pm on Wednesdays so make sure you get your money’s worth (in this case — zero dollars) by going as close to 6 pm as possible. I aimed to be there for 6 pm, so of course, I was right on time — 6:15 pm …

These are my two handsome friends, Lauren and Liam. Thanks for being my unintentional models.

So if you’re looking for something to do for free dollars, why not stand in front of an impressionist painting and nod your head and say profound things like, “This is what you’d call a large painting,” or “I like this artist’s use of paint and brushes and stuff.” BOOM. Cultured.
