M^3

by chinwhat at 10:40 PM
The tradition continues: went to Masala! Mehndi! Masti! this year but this time, they’ve moved from Harbourfront Centre to the Ex. I’m still on the fence whether this was a good move.

Pluses:
• food value is way better here than at Harbourfront. Even though the food at HC is good, they always have the “Watch your portions!” rule in full affect. Funny moment: so I’m ordering some chicken kababs for myself and Alison. She happens to stand besides me as I mention to the vendor that whatever he put on the pita was good. He wraps it up hands it to me, then I had it to Alison. In pseudo protest she says “but that has relish on it!” “no, that’s chutney” Hahaha! >cricket< >cricket< (I guess you had to be there)

• free parking! We were able to find a free spot off Dufferin. Ai would be proud!

• free jam in one of the buildings after the concert. Sure we didn’t go (damn you Alison and Chris!), but I’m sure there were lots of “Combiens!”

• More seat-age. Although I enjoy the CIBC concert stage more than the Bandshell, I have to say the opportunity to sit down is always a plus! (sure, we didn’t get a seat, but still. It's the theory that counts, right?)


Minuses:

• lots of grass plus rain = mud. Oh my poor shoes!

• since the Ex is so spacious, M3 seems a lot more open/empty. Its definitely less intimate than The Harbourfront Centre.

• less loiter friendly - what's better than chilling out by the lake? Not chilling by the Ex's casino, that's what!

All in all, a great time. I mean, what’s not great about lining up for food and making new friends who offer to drive me home on the roof of their car? That and well, yknow >wink<… My sincere apologies to Chris and Alison for being so easily distracted, but it’s like I died and went to brown heaven!
