Doors Open

Every year, around this time, a hundred or so Toronto homes, businesses, and religious and other institutions are open for free for the weekend to all comers. The program, called Doors Open Toronto, is a good way to get a look at everything from the new BMW building to fire stations to the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario to the Redpath Sugar refinery, with mosques, synagogues, and theaters available as well.

I've yet to go, but I love the idea and it's happening this weekend. C.'s gone off to spend his day building-hopping, and hopefully taking lots of pictures in the process. If you're interested in dabbling in a few buildings not usually open to the public, there's a full list of sites and maps available here from the Toronto Star.
