Dancing with the Dinosaurs

There's really no better way to explain my weekend than by saying I danced with dinosaurs. No, it's not a nickname for my friends. I mean actual dinosaurs at our local museum.

Spoiler alert: prepare yourself for a lot of pictures from Friday night.


How many people can we fit in one selfie?
Andrew, myself and a group of friends checked into a downtown Toronto hotel. We knew we would be drinking that night and didn't want to drink and drive. Crashing at a hotel together and taking a cab to and from the museum made the most sense.

After pre-drinks at the hotel (and waiting way too long for a cab), we finally headed over to the museum. In retrospect, I probably should have taken a picture of the line up to get in. It was literally two blocks long. Fortunately for us, I was smart enough to pre-purchase the tickets and we got in right away.

The first thing we were greeted by when we walked into the museum was a giant dinosaur. It really doesn't get much better than that.

We spent the night exploring the museum, trying new drinks and waiting way too long in line for food (which happened be sold out the moment we got to the front). We had so much fun though!

"Do your best dinosaur face!"
I think we failed.

Rooftop patio
We finished the night off at a rooftop patio before heading back to the hotel. It was an amazing night and I'm contemplating going back to the museum next Friday; it's the last Friday of the summer that the museum turns into a club!


Saturday was a complete write-off. We all woke up groggy and tired and for some reason thought an Indian buffet was a good idea for breakfast/lunch. It wasn't.


This is where I'm supposed to tell you about the wonderful time I had with my dad on Father's Day. Well, my dad ended up having his own plans on Sunday and I didn't get to see him.

So, instead I enjoyed Sex on the Beach and wings. Yum!
