The Drake; red wine.

To go for a drink on the weekend

Reposado Tequila Bar on Ossington to hear the gypsy swing band.

Downward Dog on Queen.

Place to buy books and magazines

Pages and David Mirvish Books prior to their closing.

One thought on “TOP SPOTS: Susie Love

  1. Susi Love has fierce style. I once described her jewelry designs as “Lucite salad tongs on steroids” Her pieces bring more second glances and compliments then any Tiffany’s bauble, as they reflect her playful and creative personality in each original design. Having sported her wearable art pieces at parties around town I love to say, “Honey, don’t be pulling at my neck- that is a Susi Love Original.” Why her designs were not showcased or for sale last week in the Allstream Center for LG Fashion week is a mystery….cause nobody creates jewelry like this gal.
