Fall Of the Walled Garden, by Azero/AO (Also Collective and Mason Studio), part of Come Up To My Room at the Gladstone Saturday, January 25.
On Friday, January 24, a man with an orange tabby cat perched on his shoulder walked into the College subway station as the train was pulling in. He sat the cat down on the platform. "Be patient," he said. The cat calmly strolled into the subway car once the train had stopped and the doors opened. To the delight of passengers nearby, it jumped onto an empty seat as if it were the most natural thing in the world. The cat's friend, who looked like someone straight out of Inside Llewyn Davis, sat down near the cat. Click.

WHEN Wednesday, January 22
WHY MPP Cheri DiNovo (Parkdale-High Park) created these delightful monstrosities and more for a silent auction, part of a fundraiser to cover the legal bills of former Marineland trainers being sued by their ex-employer for speaking out about alleged inadequacies in the park's care of its animals.
ALSO FEATURED a tiger with the eyes of Kathleen Wynne, puppies looking through the peepers of Michael Bryant.

Staking Out Steak Queen
NOW's resident restaurant critic, Steven Davey, trekked to Steak Queen in north Etobicoke to see why Hizzoner Rob Ford is drawn back time and again. He was expecting an outlaw cantina full of gangbangers armed with digital video recorders to catch the mayor's latest drunken stupor. Instead, he found an anonymous if friendly fast food resto full of young families knocking back $3.99 three egg 'n' bacon breakfasts. For an extra 50 cents they'll put gravy on anything!
