I thought Canada (Toronto was my only reviewed city) was a great place to visit. I thought it would be a great place to live too, but there was the problem of a job, and then the exchange rate advantage honeymoon would be over. Even the panhandlers (is that a term from my parents' youth?) were courteous, unlike my experience in Philadelphia.
'Uptown' is, well, walkin' distance from downtown, and since we've always been on the fringe of downtown, we thought Uptown was a good name when we opened. I of course, am reputedly on some other fringes as well.
The problem with straws is which end to use...I'm mechanically challenged.
