Riddle Me This....

As I was strolling through the neighbourhood recently, I noticed a strange sight in the window of 2035 Danforth (a block west of Woodbine on the south side). The phrase "It's Coming" is painted onto the window.



My first impression, strangely, was that this could be a prophecy for the arrival of a fleet of alien spaceships which will thrust Danforth East into darkness. However, the happy smiley face painted next to it signified that if anything, there will be a baby invasion.

All of my sleuthing has come to naught. Not a peep from anyone about this latest mystery storefront. So, if anyone knows what is happening at this address, please let me know. I would love to have an answer to this strange riddle!

  1. If you happen to catch the hipster folks coming in and out of the work site, they'll fill you in. Out of respect for their hype-building secrecy, I'm staying mum. However, I'm happy to play a game of 'hot & cold' in this thread if anyone's interested :)

    Supposedly it's going to drop in a few weeks, and it sounds like a fantastic (and much needed) neighborhood addition.

  2. Yeah I've seen this too and am quite curious. So, my guess is some kind of chidren's store, maybe a toy store or something. Hot or cold?

  3. Ok, one more try. I'll take a wild guess and say camera shop.

  4. Nope. You're still stuck in a mid January deep-freeze.

    Though a well played camera shop would be a good addition.....

  5. I've never seen anyone coming in or out, which is crazy because I've stood there "loitering" atleast twice.
    Boohoo!
    How about a Home Hardware?

  6. Sarah, you need to keep a list of these ideas -- they're all great ideas for the neighborhood!

    Sadly, they're also all ice, ice cold. :(

    It's funny you mention the loitering, as their door was open on my way home today!

  7. How about a bait shop? What's a local angler to do?

  8. Caley: believe it or not, you're the warmest yet.

    (aside: guessing games are fun!)

  9. A fish monger? We could use a decent place to buy fish around here. - Jen

  12. hmmmm....ice cream and live bait, two clues which really have nothing in common....

  13. I'm thinking: hipsters + bait = sushi joint.

  14. That's a good guess! Sushi would be a nice addition to the area, though I do like the trek to Aji Sai near Donlands and Danforth.

  15. It's not sushi, but it IS food, or at least food related.

    Clues!

  16. Maybe not the hippest place, but this area needs a good Vietnamese or Indian restaurant!

  18. Boo, my husband figured out what the new place is... I won't spoil it, but I'm hoping that it'll have something we can use...
