Ross Corder (featured in Mountains II) just opened a restaurant in Toronto! If you’re in the Kensington area and in need of some amazing food, stop by Hot Beans. All vegan and all delicious. Ross’ passion for food really shows in all the menu items. Yesterday I had a side of rice and beans that tasted better the entrées I’ve had at many other places. Check out their facebook page for all the info.
In other news, I never updated to say how amazing the Mountains Collective party at the start of year was. IT WAS AMAZING. Such a great crowd out all night. Thanks for coming, you made me want to keep doing them. Also, Mountains III is in the works. Slowly but surely!
Before anything, I want to thank everyone for the support in both coming to the Mountains 2 Launch or even picking up a copy online. Issue 2 is out there now and has been getting great feedback. That being said, if you don’t have a copy yet, I highly suggest you get on that. If you don’t have either copy, we’ll give you both for $15. Click on ‘Buy Mountains’ above to order your copy. Thanks again everyone.
The time has come! Mountains 2 is officially being launched. A bunch of issues have slowly been leaking out but it is legit now! If you’re in the Toronto area, please come out.
