Abby Hutchison in Parkdale

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in a small town in Southern Alberta. 

What brought you to Toronto?

Far away friends, different city, new experiences.

What do you do for a living?

Right now I serve beer in a curry bar…

What’s your favourite thing about your neighbourhood?

Everything – my neighbourhood is my favourite part of the city. The side streets are so beautiful and it’s close to High Park and Sunnyside Pool, which is so convenient on the hot hot days when it’s open late. When I bike home, I can see the water, which never stops being exciting.

What’s the last treasure you found?

It’s not the most recent, but maybe the most important – my apartment. It’s such a dream and I often think about how thankful I am that I found it.

If you were going to eat your last meal in Toronto, where and what would you eat?

Bean and cheese pupusas from Emporium Latino in Kensington Market.

If you could have a sleepover with anyone who has ever existed, who would it be?

My Grandma, Mom and sister. In a big tent in the outdoors.

If your life was a TV show, what would be the theme song?

That Summer Feeling – Jonathan Richman. Forever nostalgic.

What does Toronto need that it doesn’t have now?

Since I moved here after living in Calgary for a short time, I am still excited about all of the things this city does have, in comparison. However, if there is something here that is similar to Le Pick Up in Montreal, I would love to find out about it.
