Chilly Oktoberfest

To Bloor West Village in Toronto last night for the Oktoberfest, a two-day event scheduled for Friday and Saturday. Friday was cancelled due to a storm warning and Saturday poorly attended - maybe folk thought the whole thing was called off. Anyway after dining at the Amber Restaurant we ventured outdoors for beer and entertainment.
Star of the night was Michael Ross, a madcap magician. Highly recommended - if you want to book him email here. He tells me that he lives by email as he is moving around so much.
A trio with accordian, guitar and clarinet followed - all the old favourites such as "The Birdie Song" and "Wooden Heart" were well received. It was rather cold but a good time was had by all - I think definitely the last outdoor gig of the year.
