Recently discovered Tri's restaurant in this lovely lively place near Laurier metro station. Tri Express is the place for delicious - and affordable - refined sushi and chef's specialities. The decor is great too ! Some of you might have heard of Trì Dư because of this hilarious video of him preparing a Royal clam on a TV show that went viral a few years ago - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KrtyIqSzoYI
A 500-meter long (quarter mile) walking path with a magnificent view of Lake Mälaren, City Hall, and Riddarholmen. Bring your take-away coffee and walk the path at least once every season to notice the different scents and colours of Stockholm.
I remember when I saw Shadows, by Andy Warhol in that big room. I was sitting in a sofa, and felt asleep. When I woke up it felt incredible. When my friends come to visit me it's a place where I like to go all together.
Cheep, delicious chili, burgers, and snacks. Not a contender for best food in town, but the best environment , maybe anywhere. It has been open for a while...walking in feels like stepping back about 50 years, its great. It is only open Fall-Spring, dont even try in the summer.
It's hard describe the experience of walking across a bridge in New York, but let's say, people wise, it's where you are likely to see a jogging hasidic woman pushing a baby carriage trying to avoid being run over by a fixed gear bicyclist barreling down at 60MPH.
I have always been passionate about Natural History. The collections in this museum are extraordinary. Founded in 1825 this is the oldest museum in sub-Saharan Africa, includes the only preserved specimen of the extinct Quagga and ridiculously beautiful diorama’s of the Karoo. I don’t believe any natural history collection can be compared with another, this one is old and decaying and quite perfect...period.. If I’m ever short of inspiration this is where I’ll go.
Somewhat off the beaten Williamsburg-track, Brooklyn Art Library is nestled on a mostly residential street. It’s home to tens of thousands of artist sketchbooks known as “The Sketchbook Project”. Over 100 countries are represented and their “collection houses books from small communities in Mongolia next to professional illustrators from New York.” You can donate one of your very own! All the sketchbooks have been cataloged for easy searching of their vast shelves, by artist and subject, and visitors are invited to browse what feels much like a hands-on museum. The Art Library also remains one of the few places to find art supplies (while limited) in the neighborhood, and if you’re in the market for a special gift (including books, totes and the cutest retro pennants) for your favorite art-lovin’ bibliophile, you might just get lucky here.
