A few months ago I was invited to speak at the Mount Pleasant Business Area’s AGM and it’s there that I became more familiar with the variety of restaurants, shops, and services that this neighbourhood has to offer. Mount Pleasant BIA’s catchment area spans from 16th Ave to 6th Ave, and Prince Edward to Quebec with Main Street running right down the middle. This week I was invited back to the neighbourhood to judge a Halloween decorating contest in which 30 businesses took part. Along with Jessica Shmigelsky, Kara Mintzberg (MPBIA), and Greg Edgelow (MPBIA) I took a walking tour that left me hungry for more of what Mount Pleasant has to offer — even with all of the ghoulish decorations.
Our unanimous decisions awarded Banana Tans the “Best Overall” trophy and the Mount Pleasant Community Centre‘s youth group won “Most Creative” with their haunted house. Each was presented with a certificate and $500 from the MPBIA for their efforts.
Visit the Mount Pleasant Business Improvement Area on Facebook and Twitter to learn more about the area and take your own walking tour up and down Main to check out some of these great shops and eateries for yourself.
