My Toronto Includes Georgia Kristoffersen

Georgia Kristoffersen, Admin/ Receptionist
Deciding what to get at Tequila Bookworm.

What is your most favourite place in the city?
That’s a hard one. I would have to say Tequila Bookworm. It’s a great little cafe/restaurant on Queen West.

What is it that you like about this location?
I’m not too sure, it’s just a great place to hang out with friends and have a coffee. There’s a laid back and trendy atmosphere without the faux-hemian pretencious vibe that some other Queen West locations can have.

Where is the best place to eat in the city?
There’s tons of great places in the city! I would say a great cheap place is Pho Hung. I’m addicted to Pho!

What do you like about living in Toronto?

Multiculturalism. I lived in Europe for a little while, and I really missed different ethnic neighbours (like Chinatown, or the Danforth) that being different is excepted, and cool. It’s not just different.

What do you hate about living in Toronto?

The ‘gang’ or gun violence issue. It just sucks. Or medias coverage of it. A family member that lives in Sudbury once said that she didn’t want to come to Toronto cause she “didn’t want to get shot” It was like that time when SARS was an issue, nobody wanted to come to Toronto. Everyone was paranoid.

Where would I find you on a lazy Sunday afternoon in the city?

(Window)shopping! Or maybe cloistered somewhere in Chapters.

Who is your favourite Local Celebrity?

Mike Myers. Loved him on SNL.

Car, Bike or Transit?
Transit.

Favorite personal story or commentary on the city
I love being a host to family/friends that visit me here. I’ve lived here most my life and I still switch to tourist.

My Toronto includes belonging.
