FIELD NOTES: Closed down in 2005 and boarded up ever since, the peculiarly designed restaurant Nite-Caps by the Castle has seen its fair share of graffiti. Unlike with most vacant buildings, the pieces here are cleaned up almost as quickly as they’re created (this lovely wheat paste lasted about two days). For a property that’s been something of an eyesore for nearly a decade, the owners sure take pride in its pristine exterior.

Once a week, Vandalist features some of the most interesting street art and graffiti from around Toronto. Find something great? Email
