Starfish Oyster Bar & Grill….

I still remember the first time I had mussels, I was maybe 12. We were visiting a family friend just outside Paris and our hosts had made us mussels. I think I liked it when I had it, my mom was a bit concerned about my sister and I eating unfamiliar food while on vacation but it all turned out alright. Since then I always get these random cravings for mussels. I find them DELICIOUS!! When my friend, the human Urban Spoon, suggested Starfish for our Summerlicious lunch option I was super excited. Starfish is a charming little place on Adelaide st east and I’m ashamed that I never knew they existed. The lunch menu was filled with yummy food from the sea and we were excited to try everything. 

Thank You!

  I turned 29 today! Yes, it’s my birthday. I’m not sad or depressed about turning a year older. I’m excited, grateful, blessed and yeah, healthy! I had an amazing long weekend filled with exciting new experiences, great food and absolutely amazing time spent with all my close friends. So Thank you all, it made my birthday even more especial! I’ll post individual posts about some of my birthday weekend festivities soon. ** Mom & dad, I love you both and thanks for everything! ** Solmaz

Volkswagen Freedriving Tour

Few weeks ago I got a surprise invitation from Volkswagen Canada to join them during their VW Freedriving Tour that’s being held this weekend (July 22-24) in Toronto. Being a big fan of VW cars (ehumm…I LOVE my baby Jetta!!) I am super excited to get a chance to test the 2011 VW cars in a crazy closed course. Now here is a short video from the 2010 event to get an idea about what this event is about… I have never done anything like this before and I might as well go BIG and go with the sporty GTI with the paddle shifting capabilities for my day of fun at the Freedriving event. It looks so fun to drive, I can’t wait!!! To make this day even more fun I get to have my very own driving instructor to teach me all the tricks of the road and how to handle these cars on the track. One of the instructors for the day is Jeff McKague, he’s been a professional race and performance driver …
