The Raven, or rather the club that served as the filming site for our favourite Toronto nightclub on Richmond/Duncan has reopened as a sportsbar. The entire building has ondergone major renovations during the last year. It now houses several venues under the name The Fifth. The Fifth Pubhouse is located on the ground floor/basement that is accessible through the Raven's former front door. The alley entrance leads to a smaller bar called Cabin Five.

I haven't been there yet, just passed by in a taxi at night, and was happy to see crowds of people going in and out.

The change would certainly make for an interesting fanfic, don't you think? In this context, it comes in handy that [community profile] fkficfest has opened its sign-up period for this year's game. Sign-ups close on June 7. So drop by and leave your prompts.

I rewatched Dead Issue today. And after so much time, there are still things I notice for the first time. Did anyone else recognize the Raven in the background of the first scene following the credits? Nick arrives in his car at the cime scene and it's the corner of the Raven. They just took the sign down.

On another note, I wondered if the room where the murder occurred served in season 2 as Natalie's apartment. I just noticed the two Roman columns which are also present in Natalie's apartment. However, they showed too little else from the room to be sure.

It saddened me to read that the cozy bookstore "Nicholas Hoare" located on Front Street, Toronto, is going to close on April 1. It served as location in "Stranger than Fiction" where Emily Weiss had her book signing.
