Additional Events Coming Up!

             This week and next week will see 3 events, 2 this week, one in Tyrone Ontario for the Farmers Parade as you guys remember I last did that event back in 2019 before COVID started that went through 2.5 to 3 years and still even a thing now but besides the point. Anyways this Wednesday (tomorrow) I will be attending the parade for the first time in 4 years which will be another first for CBOTW Media. Then on Saturday, I will be attending Halton County Radial Museum's Christmas Streetcar event, sorry if I messed it up. 

              The following week I am back out and about again, this time to Toronto for the Toronto Christmas Market and this will indeed be the final event for 2023 as we wrap up what has been a crazy and busy year with a full year of events. Truly am blessed to have all these opportunities this year including going to Halton County Radial Museum 3 or 4 times. We got our money's worth out of our membership with em. This year even saw us with a one or two new events and also returning events that has been absent off our website for many years. With the events wrapping up next week, means more time for content which we really need to get back on the high horse with as we've fallen off. Anyways more will be coming in the way of updates for now I will talk to you all tomorrow!

What Is Going on With Events This Year?

           I know the last two years with events has been all up in the air with this pandemic. With everything unknown for the events I go to I have made that decision to not make a specific flyer for the events I will be at for the blog here on I can say Toronto is most DEFINITELY out of the realm of possibility as that is where I got sick with the "C" word last year, I am not about to make a second round of it anytime soon and any trips there is a most definite no. Also with the recent crimes in Toronto, I do not even feel like it's not safe to go there at this moment. I rather focus on the events here locally at this time.

            Any of the events will be only posted here on the website on Schedule page here on the website. It is just the best way to know what events I will be going to this year. Right now in the coming month I will be gathering events for this year that will be only local and only local in the region here. Yes I will be adding in Halton County Radial Museum and maybe South Simcoe Railway into the mix perhaps but that is it. So that is what is happening with events and the post for today, so I will as always will talk to you all tomorrow!

Christmas Market Is Happening This Year-- I'm Not Breaking My Word!

                The title doesn't lie, I know the Christmas Market is happening, but I refuse to go as we're still in a pandemic and I am not about to risk myself getting sick. Not only that, I already told you guys that I wouldn't be going to events till next year and that promise will not be broken whatsoever. I have a plan and I honestly need to stick to the plan moving forward and I am not about to break the promise or my word. I do not care, I am not getting sick for anything, not risking my life and getting sick from a  pandemic. I know and realize that there will be restrictions and limitations at this event but still we have to travel from here to Toronto by train and back and I am nowhere near ready for that far of a journey. I really do not care about going to Toronto right now my health and safety is more important then some Market right now. 

                Remember what I said-- I would start with local events first in my region not Toronto right straight off the bat and I plan on keeping my word on that to be honest.  Why rock the boat at the moment? I just not feeling that ready to actually make this move, not right now/ I don't care if I am being called stubborn, I am doing what is best for me in the end. Like I said my health means more then anything in the world right now then going to Toronto. It will happen in the nearby future but not right now. That is all I have to say on this matter and it is too early to take the risk and rock the boat. We still have between 300 - 600 cases a day which is quite high and now it is not the time to play around like this. I will talk to you tomorrow for the end of the week updates.

Toronto Distillery Christmas Market 2019

              Wednesday afternoon, I got to go with my dad and honestly I really didn't want to go but I went and I had a ton of fun once I got there. Yea I was tired and I once again didn't sleep or didn't sleep at all and by the time you see this post I am already on the road to meet up with 2 of my former staff. Anyways we took the Go Train and yes I had to refill my Presto as I may have ran right out by the time I got home but that is besides the point. The train trip takes me about 45 minutes from here to there and that is OK honestly. We got there we had to take a subway and a streetcar there but least its not as long as last year as we got stuck at a station due to a damn signal ahead so this year we were a little worries. We got there we had dinner first which was Perogies which I will be posting up a second post up for you guys this afternoon at 3 pm EST. 

                There was a socks booth, chocolate booth, Melted Swiss Cheese, Poutine which again I will explain that part in my Food Review later on when I post up the blog post later on.  they also have a smores booth which is very yummy, Wishing Well, drinks both normal and alcoholic which I just had a hot chocolate due to my meds which next year I am taking before I leave for the event this way I can join my dad. Of course they had a tree and it was blue and white with the big shiny balls and I can imagine the comments to this post from you guys... smh.  However some of the lights were off and I thought they would of checked the lights or they just burnt out so they will probably have to replace em. We had a good time one way or another and the time we were there went very fast and just enjoyed ourselves as we always do. This does conclude events locally and also in Toronto for 2019 and 2020 is close to coming I am already excited for the events in 2020 which pretty much are the same the events as this year but with some adjustments that I need to make in 2020. I will talk to you in the next post later on today for the Food Review.

Ukrainian and Polish Festival 2019!

          Obviously there was no blog but I had no time when I woke up to write something small and when I got home I was so tired, I cleaned up and was in bed pretty fast and up bright and early this morning. Anyways this morning I want to talk about the Ukrainian and Polish Festival. I want to start off with the Ukrainian Festival which we went to after the disaster of transit issues which I will talk about on a separate post tomorrow which is a post on itself technically. Anyways we got there safely and we actually did make it a little later then we wanted technically but we did miss the parade this year which was definitely a disappointment however we saw a preview of some of the entertainment that we were going to see and we did see some entertainment on the other side of the event over at Runnymede Street in Toronto. Anyways there was tons of options for food, there was rides there for the kids, they had hats from all the different countries including Ukraine, Poland and so forth. Now food wise we had the 8 Perogi, I had the cheddar and potato and my dad had the Cottage Cheese and Potato. However next year I want to split things so this way I can try the other one. The perogies were good, super soft, delicious and the onions very nicely caramelized. However 2 issues with the Perogi Pavilion. First issue they forgot my water we had to remind them and the second part was they forgot the sour cream which we paid for so I was not pleased and I think next year we will go elsewhere for our food and I wasn't pleased with the mistakes made.

 Now we traveled onto the Polish Festival and we actually were back on schedule which again I will talk about it tomorrow on the blog post about the mishap with the transit system as I said it is for a separate post tomorrow. So we got there and we walked down Roncesvalle which both Ukrainian and Polish were busy and I am happy to see quite the crowd and it is definitely getting busier each and every year that we are there. Always nice to see people indulging in the multi culture of the city of Toronto. So we walked around and we saw the donut place that we had dessert the one year yet we forgot to stop and get one again this year but always next year we will. I wanna have at least one dessert when it comes towards these festivals. We saw one stage with some Polka music playing and yes I almost wanted to dance but I didn't. Think I was in a bit of pain with my knee but the first real pain I've had in a while. Anyways we saw some more musicians under a tent followed by some dancing at the main stage. After that we had a beer at the beer tent which was a Polish Beer and my very first one ever. It was very smooth and it did leave an after taste but still good in the end. We continued to walk all the way down Roncesvalle to almost the end of the festival and headed back up. Finally we grabbed the first part of dinner which we split a Potato Pancake also known as Latke. We continued up further and we grabbed polish sausage on a bun which the bun was massive and funny fact that is the same place as last year so kind of funny in a way but worth it and we will be back in the very nearby future again as I took a picture of it to remind me where we were for the food. Overall the two festivals were really good minus those two issues at the Perogi Pavilion at the Ukrainian but overall still a fun filled day.
