#0, A reminder of Wounded Rose
Posted by TheOtherSean on Feb-18-18 at 08:13 PM
A while back, I was attending a presentation on electric railways, and it turned to the Toronto transit system. The presenter started running a slide show and describing scenes. He put up a picture of an intersection and announced "And here at the intersection of Bathurst and College..." I had to stop myself from laughing as I got a sudden reminder of Our Heroes' desperate attempt to find Sneaky Dee's back in "Wounded Rose" at the start of "Symphony of the Sword." I was suddenly reminded of it all over again when I started rereading the series.

Sneaky Dee's is real! I walked past it a couple times when I was in Toronto the other summer. At the wrong time to go in and catch a show, alas.

Fair warning to anyone who might chance to do so: the real one is pretty much nothing like the fictional one inside, as far as I know. (I actually based the interior of S1 Sneaky Dee's on a long-defunct joint in a different city.)

I found it in Google Maps Streetview a while back. All I could think of was "surreality level rising..." ;)

Happy Seven was real too, until it got shut down in the wake of a bit of a health inspection scandal.

Well, darn. And I missed all my chances to eat there during my visits to Toronto over the last near-20 years.

Also real: the shoe museum, and the Marche Movenpick. Both great places to spend time. (And eat, in the latter case.)
