Dave's Perfect Day
Posted: Mar 20, 2014

My Perfect day in the hood starts just after lunch with coffee and a treat at Coffee Culture.  Then I head over to the Burlington Art Centre and relax in the small but peaceful greenhouse.  A short walk back along the lakefront brings me to Brant Street and the fabulous Centro Garden store.

DSC04329Further up Brant Street I’m always sure to stop in The Book Nook.  Now it’s time to consider the evening, I walk to the Village Square and search out the Village Cigar Company.  With a fine cigar selected for the evening it’s time to head out for a couple of drinks and dinner.  If the weather is nice I’m heading to Emma’s Back Porch for a great view of the lake, dinner and a drink with friends.  What a great day out, now it’s time to return home and relax with that cigar.
