Nuit Blanche

I am a bit behind with my posts this week. It’s been a little busy, but I will use this Thanksgiving long weekend to play catch up.

Since 2006, Nuit Blanche has been allowing the people of Toronto a chance to spend a night stimulating their senses with some contemporary art. From 7PM to sunrise, thousands wander around downtown for this free all night affair.

Last Saturday, I excitedly made my way downtown to go check out the sights. Dinner first, then wandering.

Ran into these two at a subway station….made my night…best picture ever!!!

Stopped off at Artisano Bakery first for some Gnocchi alla Sorrentina.

Some of the art and oddities we encountered.

What I loved about this year’s event was the addition of food trucks.

Tired of the crowds and walking, ended the night off at Hot House Cafe for some mojitos and mushroom crostini.

It was a lively night and the crowd seemed bigger than last year. There was excitement in the air and the city seemed alive. I think a fun night was had by all, including me =)
