New Digs: One of my favourite local boutiques has moved locations. The Skinny is now open in Kingsway Mall next to Aritzia, on the main floor near Entrance One. Ryan and I went to the VIP preview on Tuesday before the official grand opening. It looks great! Congrats to Erin and her crew.

New Dinner Spot: Cafe Linnea now serves dinner. The famous brunch hot spot has expanded service into the evenings with a beautiful French dinner menu.
