The Great Torontoist Pun Hunt: Downtown North

Two years ago, Torontoist found sixty-two businesses in Toronto with pun-y names—from Boulevard of Broken Seams (a clothing shop that did alterations) to The Pour House (a pub) to Hi Fi Fo Fum (a speaker store). Since, we’ve found nearly one hundred more. Today: the businesses after our hearts in the northern part of downtown, from College Street all the way up to Lawrence Avenue, and from Ossington Avenue east to the Don River.

Created and curated by David Topping.

CORRECTION: January 13, 2011, 11:44 AM This collection originally included The Grind House, which is just south of College, and therefore falls outside the geographic bounds of this region. Do not fear—it will reappear in tomorrow’s set!
