Toronto Christmas Market

The following is a tale of caution…

In actuality, it’s not really even a tale. This post is going to be too short to be a tale. More like a shorter short story… 

Anywho, it’s about our trip to the Toronto Christmas Market on the last day for this season. This was my first trip to the market. If you’ve never been yourself, you should know right off the top that this place is BUSY. And I mean BIZAAAY. The last 2 days of its season, their Twitter account was warning of 5-60+ minutes wait. Much closer to 60 than 5 though. Based on the size of the line when we exited.

If you’re planning a trip, I highly recommend the Express Pass. By definition, this lets you zoom past all the people who were too cheap to purchase this pass. Oh, and it’s $20 plus a small service charge for the pass. But it’s worth it. There was literally no wait to get in for us.
(Clarification: ‘worth it”= worth it to not have to wait, but not worth the price of admission, IMHO).

So Hungry

We stayed for maybe an hour. Walking in and out of shops without buying anything, like most people do I suspect. I guess that’s just part of the experience? I don’t know how those vendors make any money to be honest. Oh well…

The wait to get into any of the restaurants is probably only 45 minutes. So if you’re patient and not too hungry, there’s that. Otherwise I suggest you eat before you go. Or head over to House on Parliament like we did.
(Shout out to HoP for providing the best wings and ambience in Toronto).

Would I go back? Probably, if my girlfriend wanted to. Which is the only moral of the story. I was with her, and that’s always the best thing ever, no matter where we are.

Happy Holidays! Until next time…
