TORONTO – CUCUMBER GIN & FARAWAY BARS

After being truly angelic and family oriented for two days it was time for us to get back on being the true party princesses we are. Pilaprats,-North-York,-Ontario We got out on the streets just in time for the sun to sink and Toronto to glow all golden. Nicolas,-North-York,-Ontario All of us being very thirsty. Pilaprats,-Toronto The boys are from way way up town, apparently as far up as one can go and still be considered Toronto. Therefore it takes a hundred different kinds of public transport to get down town. Pizza-night Jess has once again invited us over to her’s before she leaves for NYE in the UK. We order pizzas because what’s a North American party without some doughy goodness. Drinks We sip cucumber gin & tonics and whiskey gingers whilst discussing being 30 and changing careers, or 20 and being lost as fuck. Jess,-Toronto-dec-2014 This woman is a goddamn pearl. Cacti And her crib is super dreamy. Daniel-at-Jess's I get to hear all the juicy stories of them being young together, throwing messy parties and falling down stairs, about having four boyfriends at once and breakups with best friends because of a cat. This is what’s fascinating about meeting your partners old friends, because you think you know everything that is possible to know about him/her and these friends still manage to open up a whole new universe. Steven,-Toronto-dec-2014 Then it’s time to kiss Jess goodbye and take an Uber over to Steven’s place somewhere else in Toronto. I have no idea where as I always tag along but here there are old villas split into flats, all with porches in the front and wooden flooring through all three stories. Nicolas, dec 2014 We play electronic mixes on the desktop and tell stories about psycho dates and how we’ve fallen in love. A million conversations are about bands and tracks because apparently Canadians are obsessed with music and are beyond nerds when it comes to it. Linn,-Toronto-dec-2014 My trying to keep up isn’t going that well. But I don’t care that I can’t name drop albums, reference collaborations or grade genres, I have a fucking great taste in music anyways. And also people love having me at parties because they dare playing there utter guilty pleasures lol. And yes, I’m obviously jealous. Toronto,-Dec-2014 We hang out of the window and the night is dense and chilly. Nicolas, Alexis, Claire Nicolas asks me about my internship and where I want to live. I’m clueless, of course. I tell him about how I want to go to NYC but that I’m not sure if I can handle starting from zero once more and build up a whole new group of friends. Also who knows what would be left of my London if I’m away for another couple of years? I play with the thought of Daniel wanting me to move here to Toronto and funny enough it doesn’t sting like the thought of packing up and moving countries again usually does. Drinks by StevenAmaro-Nonino We run up and down the stairs for Steven to mix more syrupy amaro drinks for us, which might class as one of my new favourites. Alexis,-Toronto-2014 Then it’s way past midnight and time to switch venues. Bar People then tell me that we’re heading to a bar up the road. I’m not sure what kind of referencing Canadian’s use but a 15min walk in the freezing cold cannot possibly be just up the road, right? Once at the tiny bar though, it’s all fogged up and warm with fairy lights and kitshy paintings on the walls. There are only an older woman in damaged, bleached hair and an overweight man in a a denim vest hanging out in one corner, plus a couple of hipster boys playing rock on the juke box whilst the bartender polishes some glasses. It’s exactly as you would imagine a far off North American bar to be like in wintertime. Amanda-&-Alexis We take up half of the space, loudly ordering beers I’ve never heard of before. I have to go back to give the bartender tips as I keep on forgetting. He smiles and says it’s alright, which makes it clear that we are not in the States where they would’ve scolded me. I know one of the girls wants to sleep with him, just because he makes for the perfect geeky bartender, and we all have soft spots for cliches. Toronto,-dec-14 The boys get drunk and emotional and unrequited love overflow their conversations. Nicolas-&-Claire,-Toronto A couple of hours in the slightly shy bartender kindly throws us out on the street to close the bar. Toronto,-Canada We walk to Alexis’ car with breaths condensing and soft snow slowly falling. We’re suppose to go for late night Chinese, but Alexis says she was something better in mind. So we drive the empty streets through a dark Toronto and it’s pretty lovely being as lost as I am. Outside a badly lit bagel shop she parks and we all get out of the car. Inside there are shitty furniture and endless rows of different kinds of bagels. I’m the last one to pick a flavour, because making decisions sure isn’t my forte. We sit down around a table and sip chocolate milk and giggle with intoxication. The hot food comes out and there are wrappers and crumbs and cream cheese going everywhere. Back in the car the city looks dead and cold and unfriendly a la Palo Alto, but it’s quite charming when in the front seat of a loud car filled with drunk babes who makes you feel like a rock star.   Linn

  • ”But I don’t care that I can’t name drop albums, reference collaborations or grade genres, I have a fucking great taste in music anyways.” Disse setningene viser hvorfor nettopp du er den kuleste, klokeste, morsomste og mest inspirerende jenta i hele blogguniverset. Dine ord gjør at jeg våger å tro mer på meg selv. Takk for det.

  • I love your blog, always have always will. You turn everyday stories to somewhat fairytales. 🙂
