A Taste of Iceland at the Drake, Mar 17-20

Living in Toronto, we become somewhat familiar with a lot of cultures or countries. What do we know about Iceland? Not much. The first thing that comes to my mind is music - Bjork, Sigur Ros, GusGus and some other electronic acts, melodic, minimal, very different and creative. Then comes magical landscape with hot geysers. Other than recent economic recession issues, we don't hear much about Iceland in the media. Maybe, because of the lack of knowledge, the country seems very mysterious, even magical, close but at the same time far, people extraordinary with a mentality different from ours. I would love to go whenever I get a chance!

But for now...tah dah! Drake Hotel is having an Iceland Festival aka A Taste of Iceland this week. The menu is created by a celebrated chef straight from Reykjavik, there is a two day performance by Iceland's Mugison and an art installation. No other words, but Drake is still cool as is Iceland!

A Taste of Iceland, March 17-20, Drake Hotel, 1500 Queen St West
