Hello from the Sideshow Café

Danica and I sat up high in the front window of a nifty little coffee place on Gerrard Street East. We didn’t really try to act as window displays but ours was the last available table. There are, maybe, 3 or 4 tables all together. There’s free wi-fi.

The “sideshow” refers to the fact that the coffee (and ice cream in the summertime) outlet is an add-on business. It is attached to the Centre of Gravity Circus Training Studio. Neat place and interesting people. We ordered Americanos…they only have an espresso machine… which were delicious. Danica’s small was 2 bucks and my medium was a better deal at $2.50

Do you have buskers at some of these locations? Just wondering.

Some of the trainees might very well do some busking, Joni, but not at that location. I saw that a very polished fire-eating act was booked to entertain at the recent CEMA Awards. The entertainers were from the Centre of Gravity. I think that might be the sort of gig that earns livings.
