My friend Doug Fisher has been operating a Cabbage News Blog for a number of years ago. He's in the neighbourhood loop and "knows things".
If you live in the area, he's a must read. Here's a sample from his last posting. Says a lot about one of the iconic coffee shops in the city. Those who frequent Jet Fuel will support no other coffee shop in the city. Call them coffee militants.
Bizarre events at Jet Fuel
Jet Fuel (519 Parliament) regularly displays artwork along its walls. This month’s selection comes from Eric Farache. His exhibition entitled “The Jew Funnies” was attacked by a man who objected to its apparently antisemitic content. He was stopped after removing three pieces from the wall and running outdoors to his van. He obviously did not know that Farache is a practicing Sephardic Orthodox Jew whose artwork is the beginning of a book depicting the conflicts and misconceptions affecting contemporary Jews in Toronto. No word about the settlement of the event but it would not be surprising if the laid back staff at Jet Fuel gave the guy a coffee and a biscotti and then invited him to chill out.
