Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not to miss.
- Those still mourning the loss of the Fabricland store at Yonge and Bloor will be excited to hear that the retailer will soon be setting up shop in the Honest Ed’s building. As of next month, you’ll be able to browse through fabrics, and buttons, and fasteners, and sewing boxes to your heart’s content at Bloor and Bathurst.
- If you’re someone with synesthesia (a rare neurological condition that means words are experienced as tastes), someone will at some point almost certainly ask you what subway station names (and probably most other names) taste like. James Wannerton, who makes his home in Blackpool, England, has the condition, and thanks to him, we now know that “King Station” tastes like fruit cake, and “Summerhill” like a potato sandwich.
- Are you in the market for a bicycle, particularly one that happens to be on sale? If so, head down to the Community Bicycle Network at 761 Queen Street West on January 24 or 31 and take advantage of its inventory clear-out sale. “Prices may vary,” reads the website, “but will be greatly reduced.”
