For Torontonians, the G20/G8 summit has been nothing but a nuisance thus far. Taxpayers are footing a $1 billion bill. Residents of Toronto will have to work their weekend plans around a massive protest and, on top of it all, many businesses are closing for the weekend which puts a truly unnecessary strain on Toronto’s municipal economy.

But hey, it’s for the good of the world, right? But if you’re really looking for something to do, Toronto’s historic Distillery District which houses artisan shops, galleries, cafes, and more will remain open.

According to Mathew Rosenblatt of Cityscape Developments and the Distillery Historic District:

[W]e’re hoping that after addressing global bank regulations, Prime Minister Stephen Harper brings Obama, Merkel, Sarkozy and Medvedev down for a pint at the Mill Street Brew Pub, oysters at the Pure Spirits Oyster House and a cappuccino at Balzac’s before heading back to the security zone to discuss foreign aid.

That would be pretty awesome for a business to be able to say that Obama had a coffee there. I hope he does. And I hope they remember what seat he sat in so that I can go down and sit in it too!

The Distillery District will be open on Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm and Sunday from 11 am to 5 pm.
