Played at the El macombo, the horseshoe, (this was in the nineties), my memory is fading.... I did have a nice visit. Probably not technically downtown, hence the quotes, not sure what it's called. People traffic seemed to be missing. -- ~ Project Hope ~
Toronto did once have the reputation of rolling up the sidewalks at night, but that was a long time ago. Back then there was even a law requiring gas stations in the city proper to close at 6 pm to discourage evil cars from entering the city. Things change, though much of city council is still nuts.
