This is John Doull's Bookstore on Barrington Street. One of the spots I plan to pop into on my "Big Day Downtown" adventure. A few weeks ago I got an email asking me if I would be interested in participating in a cool promotional event for our downtown area.
A group of Halifax bloggers have been asked to spend a day exploring downtown and then write about our experiences. YES!! We'll each be given a small stipend to spend as we wish on our downtown foray. I love Halifax, and I love showing it off. I think this is a wonderful idea to highlight the forgotten and hidden gems we have. Really looking forward to reading what everybody does:)
Our downtown, the area from the waterfront to the bottom of the Citadel is in the midst of being revitalized. It has had it's ups and downs as often happens in the center of cities and it is now in the early stages of an upswing! Hooray.
Tonight is the launch party for this event and I am excited to meet the other bloggers and get the details for our mission:) I'm feeling like a secret agent. Speaking of which, I saw Inception last night. What an interesting film. Loved the idea of all the layers and going "deeper" and "deeper". Evidently.....according to a rumour, Ellen Page who lives here, brought Leonardo for a quick visit while filming that movie. He loved it and was delighted that nobody bothered him. Could just be hearsay but.......I'd like to think it's true.
