mmm.. food. I've considered that option at times as well. But then I decided that the potential for careers to destroy hobbies makes me shy away from being a full time cook.


edit: ps. I want a wool jersey. recommendations?

well, i'm worried about that a little but cooking seems to be the only thing i'm good at. at least i'll never ride a bike for a living.

there are a few makers of wool jerseys out there. if you want a cheap vintage one there's always some available in the shops in kensington market. i just bought a new one from an ebay seller. it's an Allesandro/Woolistic and it is about as nice as they come. cut like a euro race jersey, i wish i had bought one size up but it fits well for a tight-fitter.
i'd say stay away from those wool blend ones as they are mostly polyester anyway. look for 100% merino wool. i think swobo is back in business, allesandro like i said and another company called portland cyclewear, also selling on ebay. look nice on line but haven't seen them in the flesh.

Will you guys shut up about food? You're getting me hungry, which means I'll go shopping on the way home and end up eating Ruffles and dip and stoned wheat thins and cheese whiz for supper. Never go shopping for food when you're hungry. At least I shouldn't...

Somnabulent: I get my woolies off ebay. I have one that's a little snug on me that you can have if you don't mind wearing Italian with photocopier company logos on it. Some small holes in the pits, but otherwise fine.

Cavernmech: do you sell 3/32 cogs for level hubs? I was just at their website and I saw I'd been under the mistaken impression that they just did 1/8" cogs.

There's a place in Kensington market that has a bunch of wool jerseys for $25 each

I'm not exactly sure of the name of the place

They'll probably give you a deal too, I got 4 jerseys for $75 bucks.

Mitch, can you be descriptive at all about where that place is in the market? I live right there so I can do some recon on the way home and see what the current situation is for availability/price.

is that queen/pape? cursory google didn't come up with anything. the line-ups at nobu were totally ridiculous. not sure if it was worth the hype if morimoto wasn't even helming the kitchen. have you checked out his philly place? it's been open for awhile now methinks.

Yup to Queen/pape, this guy was Morimoto's right hand apparently. My wife and daughter's love his sushi, he kicks butt. AND has a sushi class 150 bucks, 6 hours, and you go home with a giant platter. Making rice, making the sushi rice, prepping, etc....cool.

Speaking of sushi... since New Generation burned down, I've been searching for a new New Generation. Sushi Time and Big Sushi (?) don't do it for me. There's a place on the south side of Bloor just east of Christie that I like, but haven't fallen in love with. The food is good, decent portions, economical, friendly staff. Is there a place you keep going back to? Do tell.

nama sushi around St Clair and Christie isn't bad. They have some seasonal stuff that's quite good.

I went once to Sushi Time on Queen W with my eight year old and was totally disappointed.
Terrible service was just the start, never again. I don't do sushi but I like other Japanese dishes.

mmmmmm Korean Grill..... always a hit for the meat intensive chow down.
the Sushi Marche has no eat in facilities, but you can fax your order in and pick it up at your leisure.

I've been to most of the Japanese restos on Bloor, so it may be time to explore other environs. I'll be checking put Nama and avoiding Sushi Time on Queen.

BTW I'll be checking out the Jet Fuel / UTW thing also... Friday then?

Sushi Time on Queen has been TERRIBLE since it moved a few buildings down. The last time I went, three seperate tables walked out becasue the service was so slow and the sushi bar took over 45min to make my Hockey Sushi. The Bloor location is much, much better.
