Yonge Street, the longest street in the world, offers variety to travellers, from the lights, shops, and malls in the heart of Toronto, to smaller streetscapes in small towns, to the reaches of Northern Ontario. In the 1800s, if you travelled the same stretch of road, you would have encountered taverns and inns, all with stories to tell. On Tuesday May 19, join author Larry Cotton as he shares such stories, from his latest publication Whiskey & Wickedness: Yonge Street – 100 Taverns in 100 Miles.
