Santa Tours Cabbagetown, 2007
If you know Santa, you know that he doesn’t fool around. Last weekend, we had a great example of his determination. He started out on Saturday at Spruce and Parliament but it was just too cold for him to sit there all day long. So, after a quick consultation with his elves, he launched himself into the restaurants and stores along Parliament and Carlton.

On Sunday, Santa visited Menagerie Pet Shop. The beautiful and talented Wendy was one of his many friends to drop in for a quick snapshot.On Saturday, Santa went up and down the street flashing charm everywhere and being warmly welcomed in return.
This week’s Newsletter is a photo essay of his journey.

Sterling Brass are having their Christmas carol sing-along at the Ben Wicks (424 Parliament) on Sunday, December 23 from 2 to 5 pm. The snow storm last weekend forced a postponement.
On Christmas Day, Cranberries (601 Parliament) will hold its annual Christmas dinner. It’s a feast. Virtually every other Cabbagetown restaurant is closed. If you’re at loose ends and you want turkey without the fuss, get over to Cranberries.
Several of our bargain stores have tons of paper and wrapping supplies left and they want me to remind you about their offerings. Loonie and Less, Bargain Shop and Dollar4U are all ready to help you with your last minute decorating and wrapping chores.

Winter wonderland
Last weekend’s snow turned Parliament, Gerrard and Carlton into winter wonderlands. Even our photographer, Eric Morse, had trouble getting across the street.
