Pablo Picasso an Exhibition

Picasso was a Spaniard from Malaga, and one of the founders of Cubism and part of the Modernist movement. He constantly evolved his style and pushed the envelope; working mostly on canvas using oil paint and in sculpture.  He was one of the first artists to be featured and obsessed over by the mass media. However, it was only in this lifetime, that he became more famous than any other artist before him. Today, he remains one of the most influential creative minds in history.

The exhibit is already open at the AGO and will be running until August Im really excited to have this exhibit here in Toronto at the AGO and it is definitely a MUST see! Here are some of my favourite works from the genius artist himself.

Joe Beef

While in Montreal, the search for a new restaurant lead us to repeat instances of Joe Beef popping up on best restaurant lists for the city. I wanted see and experience what all the fuss was about; especially considering the lack of an online menu. The restaurant presented a very laid back vibe, and the decor was ripe of vintage rustic elements. We started with the oysters, enjoying ourselves a tad bit too quickly, enough to only capture a pic of empty shells they were delicious! As we savoured our first bite of their 18oz. sirloin steak, aptly named Steak Joe Beef, we quickly realized why this restaurant came so highly recommended the steak was beyond flavourful and tender, the fries were rich, and a simple green salad with white wine vinegar was the perfect complement. Believe it or not, I polished off the entire steak and then there was dessert. Initially, I objected, but was convinced to try the raspberry sorbet by our charmingly persuasive server.

We had a great night, the food and our service was excellent. If youre in town, I would definitely recommended checking out Joe Beef whether its for the Beef, or one of the their other uniquely wonderful dishes.
