Project Drink This | Update

In my search for the best Old Fashioned in Toronto, I’ve come across many variations of the tried and true recipe. But now I feel my search may have come to an end. I’m prepared to say that Cibo Wine Bar and Restaurant on King Street West makes the best Old Fashioned in Toronto. It’s not a new … Continue reading

Summer Style Inspiration

I love these pictures of John F. Kennedy enjoying the warm weather in Hyannis Port . He has such a strong and confident yet laid back style. The look is classic and simple. It’s definitely a summer style inspiration for me. Have a great long weekend Canada!

Becoming 40 | The Standards for the Modern Middle-aged Man

All men grow older but few men grow. I read that somewhere and it’s stuck with me ever since. Most of you know me as a confident, well-dressed, middle-aged guy with a balanced portfolio.

The Peacock Effect | Redefining The Middle-Aged Man

We need a broader definition of what being a man is. I remember a female friend of mine many years ago trying to figure me out. She came to the conclusion that I was either a player or gay.

Day In | Day Out

This is by far some the best life advice I’ve ever heard. It’s the commencement address to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College by David Foster Wallace. It’s brilliant. I had to share it.

Out of the Box: The Rise of Sneaker Culture | If Bobbito Garcia had a shoe museum it would look like this

I do have a bit of a love for shoes. To be honest my shoe collection would even make Carrie Bradshaw say “that guy’s got a problem”. (Yes, I just made a Sex in the City reference… so what?) I didn’t realize the full extent of the problem until the other day I caught myself … Continue reading
