    Update on construction at Starbucks on Murray St

    No Comments

    I have previously posted about some renovations going on at the Starbucks on Murray St and the one inside the Skylon Tower. With regards to the one outside, I couldn’t tell if it was still going to be a Starbucks, or if it was changing. Well, it looks like they’ve just been updating it to the latest colours and style.

    Renovations at Starbucks inside Skylon Tower

    Last week I posted about the Starbucks at the Skylon Tower complex on Murray St and how it was undergoing some renovations. Trevor Shaw reminded me there is a Starbucks inside. I stopped by the other day to check it out, and it too is under renovations.

    Another in my series on keycards

    This is the second Embassy Suites by Hilton Niagara Falls Fallsview keycard that I’ve found. It is almost exactly the same as the first one I found 6 years ago, but the logos on the back of the card have been updated.

    Nik Wallenda Prepares for His Niagara Falls Stunt

    No Comments

    The New York Times has a nice article (including video) of Nik Wallenda practicing:

    Nik Wallenda climbed up a scaffold, stepped onto the steel cable and slipped the harness of his balancing pole over his head. Then he began to walk — each step a few inches in front of the last, his leather moccasins kissing the wire that lay before him.

    The backdrop: a T.G.I. Friday’s restaurant, a Starbucks and a Sheraton hotel to the left, and the Seneca Niagara Casino and Hotel to the right.

    The scenery next month will be different: the rapids of Niagara Falls swirling below, a cold mist enveloping Mr. Wallenda, a national television audience watching in prime time.

    The Hamilton Spectator also had a nice article:

    Many in the crowd moved along with Nik Wallenda, slowly, at a distance, as the daredevil walked gingerly atop a high wire over the parking lot at Seneca Niagara Casino.

    But the couple of hundred spectators needed to keep their balance on a sidewalk rather than a five-centimetre-wide cable.
