    • FYI - for Toronto there is a free Doors Open app available for Android, IOS, and Blackberry

      I'll be leading tours at Bridgepoint on Sunday. It is very neat how they incorporated parts of the old jail. Here the tours are timed and you need to obtain tickets at the venue . They are expecting big crowds again, when they showed the jail in 2009 it was crazy busy!

    • I am looking forward to Doors Open, will just be checking it on on Saturday this year bc of another event on Sunday.

      There is also a lecture series this year including one on Friday night at OCAD with Will Aslop, the architect behind the table top design of their building:http://www.toronto.ca/doorsopen/2013/speaker.htm

    • What place worth visiting? thanks
      Hard to answer. So much depends on your interests and also what part of the City you'll be in?

      For example, if you are keen on green roofs I'd suggest the Hugh Garner Co-Op and Toronto City Hall

      Art deco more your style? For sure the R.C. Harris Filtration plant is worth a visit.

      Like old jails ? Come to Bridgepoint and see how the new hospital building incorporated neat parts of the old jail.

      For train enthusiasts, the Roundhouse by the CN Tower is very cool and you can snag free beer sample @ Steamwhistle

      However without knowing what you're into and where you'll be it is hard to make specific recommendations.

      RedPath Sugar was boring.
      You get to watch a movie, then you go to the storage room where all you see is a big mountain of sugar on the ground.

      I found RedPath super interesting. Had no idea how everything was processed and the stages of how it looked from boat to packaging...

    • Bridgepoint Health/Don Jail was good. Sprung, if you see this before tomorrow, maybe mention to staff/volunteers that they can tell people when the next tour will be available. Saw some people lined up to get tickets only to find out 10+ mins later that the next tour available was in an hour and 20 mins. I told one of the staff their and she said she was going to look into it. The process of handing out the tics was slow because she explained to each group of 2 to come back 20 mins before tour, only to explore ground floor of health centre, etc. Only one person handing out ticket. Anyway, sounds like much better organized than the previous tour before they closed it for renos.

      I also liked the Carpet factory building in Liberty Village.
