With so many choices, especially in Asian or Greek-themed restaurants, I can always find somewhere to eat. Among many of the "fast food" establishments, I'm pretty much out of luck, but again, things are changing. There are now Asian and Greek-themed fast food choices. So I can pick up something to go, or sit down for a quick bite. There are other restaurants offering a varied menu that may not have a specific theme that I can sometimes find something I can eat. My point here is that Kingston has so much to offer, that no matter what your taste, or if like me, you have to restrict certain foods, you can find somewhere to eat.
I won't name specific restaurants, because I don't want to limit my choice, or yours. The neat thing about Kingston is that you find these places in the oddest of locations--on side streets, strip malls, and larger shopping centres. One caution though--some are quite small, so if you're going on a Friday or Saturday night, you might be out of luck, unless you go early. But if you get turned away because of a lack of seating, there's probably another spot close by. Bon Apetit.
This Saturday we can all look forward to armies of costumed children roaming our neighbouhoods searching for the readily available treat and elusive trick. My favourite parts of Halloween, second after the treats, are all the decorations that start popping up around the City in the middle of October. Pumpkins, graveyards and ghosts are great ways to brighten up the dreary fall weather, so I’m offering an open invitation to send in pictures of your Halloween decorating! The Hochelaga Inn sent in these great pictures of their decorations and I want to see yours too.

I joined a group of walkers four years ago at The Running Room and trained for several events. Walking around Kingston gave me a new appreciation for the city and all of its beautiful neighbourhoods.
I'm sure doing this will help me to get to know Kingston and the Islands better.

I just got back from Kingston best sale of the year! It's the Hatley $5 for $25 sale in downtown Kingston just around the corner from the Four Points Sheraton on Brock Street. They have the best clothes, gifts and rain boats - perfect for all fall weather when you're out visiting the corn maze near the Tymparon Inn!
