  • Sully’s Boxing Gym, on Dupont in Dovercourt Village, is fighting to–if not remain in its current location–survive somewhere. The Toronto Star reports.
  • Metrolinx has offered to restore direct bus service to York University if that university, in turn, paid students nearly one million dollars to compensate them for their added transit costs. The Toronto Star reports.
  • blogTO identifies five particularly odd objects found underground in Toronto, here.
  • Toronto Life reports on David Silber, a Scarborough-born man who has become one of the world’s most remarkable and innovative chefs.
