I took a walk this morning and noticed that a sign was up in the former location of Louise’s Belgian Chocolate. According to their web site, they have locations in Ontario, Quebec and Alberta. I wonder if it will be in competition with the DQ down the street.

And as I look at the picture more closely, I notice that the Country Clover Company is also for lease. Can’t say I ever went in. Maybe that’s why it’s for lease….

Today’s update didn’t come from a walk. Well sort of. We went to Illume for coffee this morning. And luckily for us, we had dibs on the stack of fresh newspapers. After NosyNeighbour set off to work, I read through the Citizen, parts of the Globe and then dove into the Kitchissippi Times.

There were some interesting bits of information. And since I’m never sure if the links work after I add them, here’s what I learned:

  • Railbender Studio will be opening on February 15th  in 3 Hamilton (the former army barracks). It’s a combination tattoo and art studio. Interesting mix. You can read more about it in the front page article.
  • Just up the road, in the former location of lulu & coco, Cake and Shake will be opening in the Spring. Ron Eade blogged about this piece of news as well.
  • And last but not least, although it does involve a change of lease …. the Orange Gallery is moving to City Centre and …. Suzy Q Donuts is opening a second location in its place.

Yikes! those donuts will be even closer. I like that I can’t smell them now and have a 20 minute walk to get to them.
