First up was dim sum at a place in Chinatown called Rol San on Spadina. We had to wait as the place was totally jammed but finally made it and ordered pretty much everything on the menu. The turnip cake was the favorite closely followed by the sticky rice.

We found a beer tent before heading into the stadium. The ticket said 8.30 pm start but the Hip came on bang on 9 pm and played for the next couple of hours, all their old hits too for it became quite a singalong for much of the tunes. The Canadian audiences I think are terrific too. Really upbeat and noisy all the time. Made for a great atmosphere.

For those who don't know the Hip, the link is from their early 2015 show in Toronto with them playing Poets.
Another nice thing about Toronto is that places stay open really late so after the show, Ali suggested we head to a piece of the City called Liberty Village where we found a nice roof top bar called Williams Landing, seats looking out and ate pizza and drank beers until very late. I'd forgotten it was a Wednesday as by the look of it did many others for we didn't leave until 2 am-ish and the place was still busy.
Happy Canada Day!
