I had three different run-ins with bars since Monday. Blessed with Asian’s infamously low tolerance of alcoholic beverages, I am not fond of drinks and never quite know what to do with myself at a bar. Needless to say, I haven’t been to too many bars nor do I have any recommendations for drinking establishments. On Monday, I uncharacteristically went to The Avro, a cozy neighbourhood bar in Toronto’s Leslieville. The reason for my visit was Well Preserved’s HomeEc get-together, of which we share homemade food fit for the monthly theme. Since its inception in January 2012, I’ve been meaning to attend. Unfortunately, I am usually occupied on Monday evenings. My previous attempt was October 2012’s Halloween treats. I was ready to share my box of Lizard’s Eyeballs but my plan was derailed by flood warnings of Hurricane Sandy.
