Mind your left

Rule #1: Do not under any circumstances take Bay St. south around the time a concert ends at the ACC. Around 11 p.m. on weeknights. It is completely transformed into a pick up lane and no one seems to mind except someone like me who actually needs to get somewhere. There is also the offchance that the concert happens to be Bon Jovi and you will have to suffer through a slaughter of every song by a horde of teenagers who know of no singing other than offkey.

Then ofcourse there is also the possibilty you will end up taking a shortcut to avoid the lineup to the QEW post concert. The shortcut may involve having to take Queens Quay, Bathurst and then taking a left turn on Lakeshore. Following is an aerial view of this particular instersection via Google Earth:

Now also imagine it is raining like mad, your windshield is fogged up and there are two TTC Streetcars vying for first dibs to make a right when coming south. You get the picture?

On a side note, Starbucks did away with Chantico a couple of days back. I’m am now going to be cold all winter. Very very sad.
