Rainy Day Moroccan Food

It was really pouring out this morning, so I headed to 1842 to grab an espresso and dig into this Carl Hiaasen book I’ve been reading. Snapped a picture of my car in front of the Zen Gardens sign.

The weekend was pretty fun. We went to the Sultan’s Tent for some Moroccan food on Sat. and walked to Ontario Place for the last installment of the Symphony of Fire. I ate at the Sultan’s Tent once before, when it was in Yorkville, and they seem to have fixed it up a bit since they moved — made it seem a little classier, a little more like a dinner theatre. If you’re booked for the late bellydancing show, you wait in the Moroccan-styled bar up front until a table becomes available. The tables are laid out in small groups of 4 or 5 per room. When the show starts, they draw the curtains (the “walls” of the room) so that you can get a good view of the dancer. Food was delicious, and there were numerous vegetarian options.
The Symphony of Fire was cool. We were pretty far away from where it was taking place, but the vantage point gave us a good view of the fireworks. We were too far away to really hear the music, but I’m pretty sure I heard Metallica in there just after the 1812 Overture.
