You'll notice a whole load of empty there. The things we definitely want to do are:
The Zoo or Science Centre will be done on Friday, depending on the weather. Weather's good, so we're going to the Zoo. Richard does want to see the Science Centre before he leaves, so we'll need to schedule that in somewhen.

The theme park will be after the wedding, on Tuesday and/or Wednesday. It may involve two days if we do the rides and waterpark as two separate days, or one veeeeerry long day if I can acquire sufficient baratron-compatible food for that.

epi_lj and okoshun have suggested the Royal Ontario Museum on Monday 2nd.

Feel free to suggest meeting up for dinner. I am vegan but Richard eats anything. Chinese and Indian always work well (even your average, run-of-the-mill, meat-serving Chinese can make at least one thing I can eat), Italian is often good, American-style burgers & meat places are usually bad. I'm looking at the Happycow listings for Toronto and getting in a muddle - nowhere seems to have exclusively good reviews. The one thing I do know is we won't be going to Buddha's Vegetarian Foods at 666 Dundas St W, as pretty much all the reviews said it was greasy, and my grease tolerance is far lower than the average person's. We might go to the Cafe 668 Vegetarian Restaurant next door at 668 Dundas St W, as it has an equal mix of good and bad reviews.
