DOMINION RISES: After a long period of renovation, the venerable Dominion on Queen (500 Queen East) will re-open today (Monday) under new management. The inside of the space has been completely redone and there’s a new menu and — count ’em — 24 beer taps. Check out their Facebook page for a sneak peek.

We’ll have an in-depth look at the new Dominion on corktown.ca later today, so check back!

WEST DON LANDS: Urban Toronto had a pair of articles last week touring the new West Don Lands area of Corktown. The first looks at the new condo buildings while the second explores the planned retail for the area. Can’t wait until those fences come down next spring!
